The Doctor’s Recovery
(City by the Bay Stories #1)
By Cari Lynn Webb
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 384 pages
May 1st 2018 by Harlequin Heartwarming

When a doctor and a filmmaker reconnect…

Just who is healing whom?

Two years ago, Dr. Wyatt Reid shared an unforgettable goodbye kiss with Mia Fiore. Now a scuba diving accident brings the daredevil documentary filmmaker into his San Francisco ER. Could this be their shot at a real relationship? But Wyatt, haunted by family tragedy, saves lives, and Mia risks hers every day. Can they find the way to a future on both their terms?

First Kisses Around the World

In my May release, The Doctor’s Recovery, Mia Fiore and Dr. Wyatt Reid shared their first kiss in Africa. Unfortunately, it was also an unspoken good-bye. Unwilling to take a chance on love, Mia chose to pursue her work as a documentary film-maker rather than pursue a relationship with Wyatt. However, a scuba diving accident has brought Mia into Wyatt’s ER in San Francisco. Now, Mia and Wyatt have a second chance to discover if their love story is something real or something better left as a memory.

Mia and Wyatt shared their first kiss at a river under a midnight sky in Africa. First kisses are memorable-whether because they were awkward or unexpected or perfect. Perhaps that first kiss was the start of a fifty-year marriage. Or perhaps that first kiss was just that-a first kiss on the dating road to finding the right one. Either way, there’s something unforgettable in every first kiss.

If you want to make a first kiss even more extraordinary, here are five of the most romantic places around the world to share a kiss:

  1. The Bridge of Sighs ~ this is a 17th century bridge in Venice, Italy. Legend claims that a kiss on a gondola under the bridge at sunset will bring a couple eternal love. First kiss or a kiss between a long-time married couple, this sounds like the perfect place to share a smooch.
  2. Lovers Point State Marine Reserve ~ this beach park in Pacific Grove, California is popular for both locals and visitors alike. As this romantic spot faces east, it’s the only place on the west coast where you can watch the sun rise over the water. Beautiful place to enjoy a spectacular view of the sunrise and a perfect kiss.
  3. The Eiffel Tower ~ The romantic places to share a kiss in Paris, France are no doubt endless. However, taking the elevator to the third floor of The Eiffel Tower and sharing a kiss with your partner while looking over the City of Love seems like a clear choice.
  4. Fairy Pools ~ The Isle of Skye in Scotland seems like something out of a myth. And the idea that the Fairy Pools with waterfalls and crystal blue waters are there waiting seems like nothing more than a fantasy. Could there be a better place to discover the magic of a first kiss (or even a kiss with your husband of 18 years) then at the Fairy Pools?
  5. Hershey, Pennsylvania ~ Hershey is the hometown of the Hershey Kiss. Chocolate and romance are almost synonymous. Surely in the hometown of chocolate, there will be more than one place to steal a sweet kiss.

And while Mia and Wyatt shared their first kiss in an exotic location, their second kiss was no less romantic and memorable. The setting: a backyard garden beside an outdoor fountain.

In keeping with romantic places to share a kiss, here are some ideas for the best kiss locales a little closer to home:

  • A dock on a lake
  • Sunset on the beach
  • On a nature trail
  • By a camp fire
  • Under a star lit sky
  • Under an umbrella in a rain storm (or for those who prefer to remain dry: after a rainstorm)
  • Beneath a waterfall

Where ever those first kisses happen, some of the most memorable are the most unexpected. Maybe there is something to be said for spontaneity and going with the moment. Where was your most unforgettable kiss? And was it planned or spontaneous?

Happy Reading!

#BlogTour #Giveaway – THE CHARM OFFENSIVE by Cari Lynn Webb

 


On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Grand Finale for
The Charm Offensive
By Carri Lynn Webb

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops
you can see snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below…

Launch – Author Interview

What motivated you to write THE CHARM OFFENSIVE?

We moved often when I was a child because of my father’s job and now with my husband, we’ve continued to relocate around the country. I’ve been fortunate to live in both small towns and big cities and I’ve discovered there’s something to love about each place we’ve lived. There are so many wonderful romance series set in small towns and I wanted to write a series about characters who live and work in a big, vibrant city. San Francisco has always been one of my favorite cities and when the idea for The Charm Offensive came up, the City by the Bay seemed like the perfect setting.

Sophie Callahan was the first person to pull at him in places he thought only the music could reach. But, unlike the symphony, he wasn’t interested in becoming a patron of Sophie Callahan’s.

Brooke Blogs – Charmed At The Movies

To celebrate the release of my July book, The Charm Offensive, it’s time to break down charm and figure out what it really takes for someone or something to be charming. And to kick off the blog tour week, let’s talk about those movie characters that’ve charmed us.

“This story is filled with heartwarming characters and twists and turns. And along the way, Sophie and Brad rise above the bad luck in their lives to find each other, fall in love, and claim their well-deserved happily ever after. What a great story. It will warm your heart. It left me smiling happily at the end. I would definitely recommend THE CHARM OFFENSIVE to anyone looking for a heartwarming romance.”

Deal Sharing Aunt – Interview

2. How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?

I have a collection of unpublished books that span several romance categories: historical, paranormal and contemporary. We just moved into a new house last week and I came across my very first manuscript in one of the attic boxes. I took it out, dusted it off and repacked it into a sturdier box for safe-keeping. That one is definitely for my eyes only.

Hearts & Scribbles – Pets That Charm Us

My heroine, Sophie Callahan, owns a pet store called The Pampered Pooch in my July release, The Charm Offensive. Pet owners can find everything they need for their favorite four-legged family members from dog food to cat beds to every sort of toy. City dogs can also enjoy play dates in the Pooch’s day care. Sophie can’t refuse shelter for abandoned kittens, puppy surrenders or rescues of any kind. She makes use of her foster families and her kennels to house all of her furry friends until she finds each one a forever home.

“Overall, I would recommend this book to romance readers and young adults. It’ll put a smile on your face, and probably make you thankful you don’t have the relatives that Sophie does! Just make sure you are ready to meet Ella. I promise you that she will lift your spirits.”

Her father had taught her not to trust as a child, and she prided herself on being more open and less closed off as an adult. Until one phone call from her father had made her suspicious of everyone, including herself. One phone call had made her doubt that decency existed.

Becky on Books – Excerpt

“I lied.” His voice was low, as if dredged through the darkness. “I do want something from you.”

Sophie watched him and waited. The attic closed in as if embracing them, but a shiver shifted through the air, rippling across her skin. “What?”

Brad tugged her against him. “This.”

Paulette’s Papers – Charmed I’m Sure

I asked my two teenage daughters about the things that make a good first impression. Here’s their list:

1. Someone who can make you laugh

2. Someone who is upbeat

3. Someone who is sincere

“Really good characters grab our attention with a promising plot from the beginning. I was a bit thrown by the writing style where we would get a subtle hint of knowledge on a character without giving us details several places throughout the book that kind of left us guessing … but overall, it was an enjoyable read with a happy ending to be enjoyed by all.”

Mel’s Shelves – The Charm Factor

The definition of charming according to Merriam-Webster is “extremely pleasing or delightful.” I’ve been around people I’d describe as charming and they’ve been more than simply delightful. They usually seem to have some intangible quality that is hard to describe, but so very compelling. You want to be around charming people perhaps because they make you feel like instant friends. Charming people make everyone feel better for being around them.

Harlie’s Books – Excerpt & Review

Brad’s strong hand engulfed Ella’s as if he’d been holding the girl’s hand since she’d learned to walk. Simple, easy and natural like a father with a daughter. He never flinched. Never pulled away. Just moved closer to Ella’s side. A band twisted around Sophie’s chest as if a professional linebacker had tackled her to the ground.

“The family issues were awesome in the book. They are relatable and honest. Brad is a great hero. He had to figure out what was most important to him and he did. Sophie…she had to grow on me and she finally did. ”

Bookworm Lisa – Review

“What I loved about this book is that two people with a lot of insecurities and emotional pain are able to open their heats and find love. The supporting characters are people you would like to surround yourself with (well, most of them). This is a patchwork family. Broken people, who aren’t related, coming together to make a whole.”

“This was a really sweet story. I really liked the story line. . . . I think this is a great book and recommend it to other readers.”

“The characters in The Charm Offensive are so well-written and believable. Sophie’s niece, Ella, is such a sweetheart with a huge heart. I love Evelyn and how she becomes involved in their lives. The fact that Sophie has a pet store is just awesome! I want a bookstore, but having a pet store would be my second choice. If you love sweet romance, you’ll love The Charm Offensive.”

“The Charm Offensive is sweet and witty and brimming with love and, yes, charm. Sophie, Brad, and Ella make quite a team, and their interactions will put a smile on your face and in your heart. The writing is smooth and draws you in at once, and I hope The Charm Offensive’s universe becomes a series – there are other stories to be discovered with the supporting characters.”

Heidi Reads… – Excerpt

A warning flared inside him, telling him these memories belonged to Ella and Sophie, not him. But he barreled on past the exit-now sign flashing in his mind, very much determined to add to their memories. Yes, Sophie’s stove was more vintage than practical. He’d bet the temperature in the oven hadn’t been calibrated in over two decades. And if he guessed correctly, only two of the four burners worked. Yet he wanted to make dinner here with them. Against all good sense and logic and rationale, he wanted to experience prepping and cooking in this kitchen with this family.

“I absolutely adored Sophie and Brad. Even though Brad had a pretty huge hidden motive in getting involved with Sophie. . . . An excellent heartwarming read. I loved it.”

Book Lover in Florida – Big City Charm

There’s a long-standing debate about small town living versus big city living, tiny houses versus sprawling estates covering acres of land, neighbors or no neighbors. Depending on my mood (or how much teenage drama is coursing through our house), I’ll voice my preference for one over the other. However, Sophie Callahan and Brad Harrington, from The Charm Offensive, would choose a life in the city every time.

With Love for Books – Review

“Cari Lynn Webb has written a fantastic romantic story with precious main characters. I instantly fell in love with The Charm Offensive. It’s indeed incredibly charming. It’s also sweet, entertaining and delightful. I loved that there’s so much eye for detail, even the large number of pets all have their own distinct personalities. Cari Lynn Webb has paid attention to everything and her story has warmth and cosiness in abundance. The Charm Offensive is a terrific feelgood story and I highly recommend this gorgeous loving book.”

Book Lover in Florida - golden-gate-bridge

Big City Charm by Cari Lynn Webb

My July release, The Charm Offensive, is set in one of my favorite cities: San Francisco. I loved to visit the city as a child and then after college, I was fortunate to live next to Golden Gate Park for several years. Even today, the city still holds a special place in my heart. I fell in love in the city and seventeen years later, my husband and I still talk about our first date to the Orpheum Theatre followed by a toast at The Fairmont Hotel.

There’s a long-standing debate about small town living versus big city living, tiny houses versus sprawling estates covering acres of land, neighbors or no neighbors. Depending on my mood (or how much teenage drama is coursing through our house), I’ll voice my preference for one over the other. However, Sophie Callahan and Brad Harrington, from The Charm Offensive, would choose a life in the city every time.

So in celebration of the City by the Bay, here are just a few charms of living in San Francisco:

  1. Biking across the Golden Gate bridge and taking the ferry back to Fisherman’s Wharf.
  2. Artisanal foods and the ability to satisfy any food craving at any time.
  3. The faded lettering etched into the buildings that serve as reminders of a buildings’ long history. (And getting to live in one of those turn of the century Victorian flats with original hardwood floors, intricate molding and having a bedroom in what had once been the parlor or drawing room.)
  4. Street fairs, street performers, street art. Farmer’s markets, food trucks and festivals.
  5. Museums that celebrate the past, present and future of the arts.
  6. AT&T Park, the SF Giant’s baseball stadium, with a view of the Bay from just about every seat.
  7. Grace Cathedral that offers a calm oasis from the bustle of the city and even yoga on Tuesdays in the indoor labyrinth.
  8. The fog that blankets the city and the bay, changing the view daily with its arrival and departure.

There’s so much more to San Francisco than this simple list and now I’m tempted to make some travel plans to visit the city again soon to see what else I haven’t yet discovered in the City by the Bay.

Happy Reading!
