Description of this Book

A heart-warming, thoroughly entertaining novel about a whole community.Kerry Macfarlane has run away from his wedding-that-wasn't. He lands in coastal Gabriel's Bay, which bills itself as 'a well-appointed small town' on its website (last updated two decades ago). Here Kerry hopes to prove he's not a complete failure. Or, at least, give his most convincing impression.But Gabriel's Bay has its own problems - low employment, no tourists, and a daunting hill road between it and civilisation. And Kerry must also run the gauntlet of its inhabitants- Sidney, single mother deserted by a feckless ex; Mac, the straight-shooting doctor's receptionist; a team of nine-year-olds; a giant restaurateur; and the local progressive association, who'll debate apostrophe placement until the crack of doom.Can Kerry win their respect, and perhaps even love? Will his brilliant plan to transform the town's fortunes earn him a lasting welcome in Gabriel's Bay?
