Review by Jill Williamson

This time Maddie and Aunt Sid are on vacation. The timeshare Aunt Sid’s friend bought isn’t much of a vacation, though. Still, the ladies vow to enjoy themselves in beautiful Cabo San Lucas. In a surprise visit, Ian and Ryan show up. The guys have a great hotel, and Maddie is enjoying the visit when beautiful blonde Shelby—a girl from Ryan’s past—saunters into the picture. Maddie is jealous, but she and Ryan really aren’t a couple. So she preoccupies herself by helping her new friend Francesca find a better job.

This was a frustrating story! Shelby is annoying and she steals Ryan away from Maddie early on in the vacation. Maddie deals with it very well. She doesn’t go crazy with jealous anger, fits, or revenge. She simply goes on with her own life, trying to do what’s right and have fun. It isn’t easy for her, but any guy who has his priorities straight wouldn’t be blind-sighted by Shelby’s act for long. Ryan is no exception.

What I loved about this story was the fact that Maddie behaves so lovingly toward Shelby. It’s not only the right thing to do, but it’s attractive to Ryan because guys want a girl who is about something. Girls, if you want to catch a great guy, don’t chase him and put on an act. Be yourself. Maddie comes to the conclusion that if Ryan is really into Shelby and her wild ways, he really isn’t the guy for her. Too true. You’ve got to read this one to see how it all works out. Highly recommended.
