Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.

After her best friend is jilted at the altar, maid of honor Lilly Durand whisks the bride to Dragonfly Beach and its legendary hotel, determined to help her overcome her misery. Lilly won’t admit it, but she’s hurting too. During the few days of pre-wedding festivities, a powerful attraction had grown between her and the handsome and confident best man, Alec Thatcher. Now she’ll never see him again, but she’s decided to consider that a good thing. This way her inconvenient crush can’t turn into something so dangerous as love. But then, to her dismay, she discovers Alec is just a room key away at what some call the Heartbreak Hotel.

Alec Thatcher doesn’t have the time or inclination for long-term romance. Serial dating has suited his confirmed-bachelor status just fine—until he meets Lilly Durand and his world turns on its axis. She claims to be as relationship-averse as he, but when the two of them are together he can’t recall his own reasons against commitment. Though Lilly touches his heart and soul, she’s as cautious as she is sexy. With a stubborn streak a mile long, Alec will have to exert all his powers of persuasion to give Lilly her last first kiss…


This is such a great start to a wonderful new series of books about the Heartbreak Hotel. The emotion and angst this couple were feeling. She being so afraid of heartbreak, that she stayed clear of falling in love. Having an upbringing that made her feel unloveable. She steers clear of any kind of relationships, knowing it would just lead to her broken heart. Then Alec too isn’t a stranger to pain and heartache. So he isn’t interested in anything more than one-night stands. But the magic of the Heartbreak Hotel does it’s thing to bring them together. It’s so beautiful and so touching.

The characters were so beautifully written and very complex. Christie always writes such emotionally moving stories, with characters that you can’t help but get emotionally attached to. This was one of those stories for me.

The secondary characters were great and I look forward to reading some of their stories, as the Heartbreak Hotel series goes on!
