Blog Tour and Giveaway – Barefoot in the Sun by Roxanne St. Claire



About the book:

A Barefoot Bay Novel

When running is all you’ve ever known . . . 

Caught between fight and flight, Zoe Tamarin has always picked flight. Since she was rescued from a nightmare childhood by her great-aunt Pasha, they’ve been on the move, never staying in one place long enough to risk exposing their precarious past. But now that they’ve reached the sun-baked shores of Barefoot Bay, Zoe may have to stay and fight-for her aunt’s life . . . and for a love she ran from years before.

Sometimes the bravest act of all is to stand still.

Oliver Bradbury came to Florida to start over, as both a doctor and a father to his eight-year-old son. He never expected life to hand him a second chance with the woman he lost years ago-but one look at Zoe Tamarin and he knows he’ll do whatever it takes to prove that this time, he can be the man she needs. But when demands of family and friendship threaten to shatter their rekindled passion, Oliver must heal Zoe’s lifelong wounds with more than hot kisses . . . but will that be enough to keep her from flying off with his heart?

BAREFOOT IN THE SUN is the third book in the Barefoot series and I loved every word. Since the first book when Zoe hid from the mystery man while buying condoms with her friends at the Ritz-Carlton, I’ve wanted her story. BAREFOOT IN THE SUN is an incredibly emotional story that had me breaking out the tissues more than once. Zoe’s life has been spent constantly running and she honestly doesn’t believe that she knows how to begin to put down roots. Once upon a time she thought she had found someone to love, but when she revealed her deepest secret he didn’t give her the reaction she wanted and she did what Zoe does best…she ran. Now her past has caught up with her and she has to decide if it is time to stop running or if she will run forever. Oliver is the perfect match for Zoe. He’s serious and calm – she’s spontaneous and constantly moving. Their relationship in the past became serious fast and ended just as quickly, but this time Oliver isn’t going to let Zoe go without a fight. There is the perfect blend of character growth, romance, and friendship found in this story. I loved how hard Oliver fights for Zoe and how hard Zoe fights against her own nature to find her happily ever after. BAREFOOT IN THE SUN is a fantastic contemporary romance that will delight readers.

  1. I’d rather not cry when reading a book. I like to be entertained and feel happy, and get to the end and enjoy my HEA. But there are those special books, that have sad moments in them but then lead to overwhelming happiness, that I can enjoy despite the tears shed in the reading of them.

  2. Thanks for the great review. I do like an occasional good cry – try Three Wishes by Barbara Delinsky for that. I also do enjoy a few tears in a book. Thanks for a giveaway.

  3. I posted on your fb page and commented on other posts. Thanks again for the chance to win. This was on my wish list.

  4. I don’t mind a few misty moments. A cry is good for the soul sometimes. I have been waiting for this book to come out.

  5. It’s not the reason that I read certain books, but I do like books that make me cry. Thanks for the great review and giveaway.
