Reviewed By Kayti Nika Raet for Readers’ Favorite
"From the Front Desk by Lori Power is the second book in the Gentle Surf series of contemporary romance novels. It is the perfect novel for readers who are looking for a sweet generational romance saga. Wendee and Toby are two wounded people who both came to the island of Coronado, searching for peace and healing within themselves after a rocky past. A serendipitous encounter on the beach has them soon finding that in each other.
First and foremost a romance, From the Front Desk by Lori Power also has elements of mystery and a potential ghost story, but at its core From the Front Desk is about people learning to embrace the future and the unknown once more. Powers creates a sweet romance with a slow build up leading to flirty moments and passionate encounters. I found myself really enjoying as well how Powers set up the island almost as if it were a third character we would love to visit again.
From the Front Desk is perfect for those looking to move away from dark, angst ridden romance and are looking for something lighter that warms the heart. It is especially good for readers hoping to close the book with the happily ever after they crave. This is a simple romance which will leave you rooting for this heartwarming pair and attracted to the genuine charm of the island and its inhabitants. A quick read, From the Front Desk by Lori Powers is a story of attraction, trust, and passion."
