That Man of Mine
Whispering Bay # 3
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.

I was so excited I got to read this book right after Lauren and Nate's story. This story pick up right after theirs which was great!
Mimi is the mayor and while she isn't totally sure what she is doing she is learning along the way with the help of her friends. Zeke and her are taking a bit of a time out, but she isn't letting that effect her job even though she still is madly in love with him and wants to be with him. She just wants him to trust her and be more open.
Zeke is still the sexy as hell police chief and wants to be with Mimi more than anything but it will all come back together in due time. At first when I started reading I thought oh no someone was unfaithful but as the story progresses you can see how much they are in love and want things to work out in their marriage.
It really was a great storyline. Most of the times you see in romances that couples and marriages aren't perfect but having a married couple that has been separated after being together for 18 years get back together was a nice treat. I enjoyed that Mimi was strong and followed through with becoming the mayor when in the first book he wasn't all that supportive of the idea.
I loved how this book wrapped up with Tom and Allie finally having the wedding that was being planned although I'm shocked since Lauren and Nate were the last to be engaged but married first. I enjoyed hearing Nate and Lauren are expending their family and Zeke and Mimi have a few surprises on the way.
I really do love all the characters in the story. This book I thought had a little more humor added such as a scene with armadillos that I couldn't stop laughing over. I hope Claire will get her own book so we can have some updates on what is new in whispering bay.
The more I read this series the more I fall in love with it. I love the small town and how you can Envision the scenery and the people who make it home.
This could be read as a standalone but to get the full effect of the characters and the town you should start from the beginning and believe me it will be worth it.
