That Man of Mine
Whispering Bay # 3
By: Maria Geraci
Releasing June 9th, 2015
When Mimi Grant becomes mayor of Whispering Bay, she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for. Her biggest concern? The city’s annual festival is in financial ruin and the former housewife doesn’t have a clue how to fix things. But, she’s determined to bring the sleepy beachside town into the twenty-first century.
Hunky Police Chief Zeke Grant isn’t happy that his estranged wife Mimi has just become his boss. But for the town’s sake, he’s willing to swallow his pride and let her order him around—to a point. Everything aside, he doesn’t count on someone from his past coming back to haunt him, forcing him to reevaluate what’s really important.
While Mimi and Zeke continue to butt heads on how to get things done, there’s one thing they can’t help but agree on: their chemistry is hotter than ever. However, when a robbery threatens to derail the annual festival, some of the town’s residents question Mimi and Zeke’s ability to keep Whispering Bay safe—as well as keep their war-torn personal life out of civic business. Mimi and Zeke must team up to solve the crime, and decide once and for all if it’s time to move forward with separate lives, or if true love really does conquer all.
That Man of Mine takes us back to the Whispering Bay. This is the book three in the series, and from the previous books, we know the police chief Zeke, and his now mayor wife, Mimi are having some trouble in their marriage. And That Man of Mine gives us the details of the story of Mimi and Zeke, as well a look into the small town life, where they are as the 'power couple'.
It's a sweet story of the realities of life, how even the 'perfect couple' can have problems in their marriage, how important communication is in a relationship, and the humorous side to living in a small town spot light. There is much for Mimi to learn about running the town, the new challenges are stressful, their daughter is acting up, there's wedding to be planned for Zeke's sister, and the father of Zeke and Allie is suddenly back in the picture.
I liked that both Zeke and Mimi were willing to work on thing, and how obvious their love for each other was. I thought they both had valid points, and liked how they worked so seamlessly as a team when they wanted to. They both were willing to step up for each other when needed, and they could calm each other out in the face of a storm, with just one look.
The book tells the story of the spring at the Whispering Bay. It is lively and witty tale of the small town living, and an open eyed look at the marriage of eighteen years, second chances, the importance of an open communication, and willingness to forgive and move on, where love still conquers all
