She's hiding a broken engagement. 
He's concealing his true birth heritage.
They'll have to trust their hearts even if they're sure love is a lie.

Now that Eva Halloway is back in her hometown of Cinnamon Bay, she has one full plate with the grand re-opening of her newly inherited boardwalk cafe and a broken engagement to hide from the town gossip mill. First, Eva must bury her bruised heart, and second, she must ban the ridiculous Cafe Amour drink from the menu. But, sexy stranger, Mac Jenssen strolls into her cafe and before she knows it, they've both sipped on the legendary love concoction. By the end of the day, Eva is up to her neck in a feud with a trio of matchmaking little old ladies and wondering if she can trust herself to help Mac uncover his past.

Macklin Jenssen arrives in Cinnamon Bay to search for the family who gave him up for adoption. Instead, he finds Eva, a legend about love, and a lighthouse with ties to his past. Plus, a spiced drink that is out of this world delicious. He hasn't bargained for any of it, but he isn't saying no to love either. In fact, the more he comes to know Eva, the more he's considering a permanent move. Too bad she's made up her mind about him, and the odds aren't in his favor.

With town gossip and crazy bat-wielding locals, Eva and Mac face an uphill battle. It might be opposites attract or even fate, but they will have to learn to trust in each other and the power of love if they ever want to find their happily ever after.

Delve into a new world of romance, mystery, and magic in the quirky coastal town of Cinnamon Bay, North Carolina.

    Fun story with heart. Enjoyed both main and supporting characters. The town and its natural environment was also an essential character in the book.

    Loved the “Golden Girls” and the cute and funny interactions! Loved the HEA and the discovery of Mac’s family and the town stories that brought him to his destiny. Eva had her own demons to reckon with and had to come full circle with her fears. Good story.
  • Great start

    What a great start to the Cinnamon Bay series. Love on the Boardwalk centers around Eva and Mac. Eva has inherited Brewed with a View from her deceased grandmother, Lilith. She decides to revamp the menu and her first order of business is removing the drink, Cafe Amour. The town’s matchmakers, Hattie, Trixie, and Birdie, object. They get Eva to make it and drink it for herself. She doesn’t believe it’s works in getting the people who drink it to fall in love. When Mac enters the coffee shop, the ladies get Eva to let Mac drink the remainder. This book is not just a love story, it’s also about growing as a person and realizing that things aren’t always how they appear. I can’t wait to read all the Cinnamon Bay books.
