Grace-by-the-Sea: Where romance and adventure come home.

Polished Jesslyn Chance has one of the most enviable positions in the little Regency coastal village of Grace-by-the-Sea. She is the hostess of the spa, arranging introductions and entertainments and playing matchmaker to the ladies and gentlemen who come to take the waters, promenade through the shops, and dance at the assembly. But when a rogue returns from her past, Jess finds herself suddenly at sea.

Always an adventurer, Larkin Denby left Grace-by-the-Sea to right the wrongful death of his father. Now he’s back on a mission: to identify the mysterious Lord of the Smugglers who allegedly sails from Grace Cove and takes England’s secrets to France. But Grace-by-the-Sea is the perfect little spa town, run by the still oh-so-perfect Jesslyn Chance. When the village’s future is threatened, Jess must work with Lark to solve the mystery and protect the town’s own. In doing so, the matchmaker of Grace-by-the-Sea may just find that the best match for her is the rogue who stole her heart years ago.

My second book by this author and once again she has written another wonderful story. 
Great characters with a great plot that will keep you reading until the book is finished. 
I also liked the setting of the story. 
The way this has written it made me feel like I a part of the story.
I also enjoyed this read because it was a clean and delightful read with a little bit of mystery entwined with it and I also enjoy some danger with it to make it more exciting! 
In my opinion, Scott has done a tremendous job with this novel. I would highly  recommend. 
I will say that one of the supporting characters is my favorite because she does add some humor to the mix and that would be Aunt Maudie. Her sense of humor made me snicker. She simply does it at the right time. I think I would like her a lot! She and I both have a weird sense of humor lol!! 
There's times when I love the supporting characters much more than I do the main ones and this is a perfect example of that. 
Jess and Lark both have hurts that needs to come to past before they can look to the future. I loved the journey they took together and maybe just maybe it was God's will that they come together for the good.  
I think that we need Jess to come to the future and show some of these people who run businesses real hospitality!  She's wonderful at what she does for a living. She's the perfect hostess! 
I just enjoyed this book and would love to read more by this author. I really like her. 

My thanks to Prism Tours for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a review. All opinions are my own and NO compensations were received.

About the Author

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t sell her first novel until she learned a bit more about writing. Since her first book was published, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She now has more than forty-five published works of warm, witty romance.

She loves everything about England, so it was only a matter of time before she started her own village. Where more perfect than the gorgeous Dorset Coast? She can imagine herself sailing along the chalk cliffs, racing her horse across the Downs, dancing at the assembly, and even drinking the spa waters. She drank the waters in Bath, after all!

Regina Scott and her husband of 30 years reside in the Puget Sound area of Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. She has dressed as a Regency dandy, learned to fence, driven four-in-hand, and sailed on a tall ship, all in the name of research, of course. Learn more about her at her website.
