Dance Upon Air by Nora Roberts
Nell Channing arrives on Three Sisters island with nothing. She happens
to walk into the bookstore/cafe just as the present cook is leaving and
gets the job. Nell is running from a horrid past. She faked her own
death in order to escape an abusive relationship.
Nell finds a
place where she can heal. She finds out her boss is a witch and
furthermore so is she. And most important she finds Zach. Zach is the
local policeman and a genuine good guy.
This is a fairly
typical romance. It is nice that Nell grows and becomes the woman she
can be instead of a scared rabbit. It is also nice that Zach seems to be
just an ordinary nice guy instead of one of those hunks that are
usually in romance stories.
First Line: "In the dark grren shadows of the deep woods, an hour before moonrise, they met in secret."
