 “At Last in Laguna” by Claire Marti is the second novel in the Laguna series. It can be read alone. The genres of this novel are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, and Romance. The timeline in this story is set mostly in the present, with reference to the past to clarify something about the characters.
The characters come from a dysfunctional upbringing and that results in many of the personality quirks. Some of the characters have secrets that impact their relations.
Alyssa Morgan’s older over protective brother gets married, and is leaving on a two week honeymoon. Nick asks his best friend Brandt Dempsey to “babysit” Alyssa, and make sure that she is safe. Alyssa is twenty-nine years old and has had a crush and is madly in love with Brandt. Brandt is not immune to Alyssa’s charms, but is aware of his loyalty and friendship with her brother.
I appreciate that the author  brings some relevant topics to the story. Eating disorders, and abusive childhoods , alcohol and drugs are discussed. Alyssa, Nick and Brandt are building a charitable site where abusive women and their children can live. The women will be given the opportunity to get skills to work, and their children can live in a safe place and attend school.
The author also discusses the importance of family, friends, loyalty, love, and hope.
I found that this is a fast moving delightful sexy novel and I would recommend this for any readers that enjoy romantic novels. I received a copy of this ARC for my honest review. I am looking forward to reading more of Claire Marti’s novels.
