From the USA Today bestselling “master of witty banter” (Entertainment Weekly) comes a hilarious and heartwarming romance about two enemies whose feud turns red-hot.

Maya Mehta will do anything to save her tiny, beloved community theater. Put on musicals she hates? Check. Hire an arrogant former-pop-star-turned-actor? Done. But what Maya really needs to save her theater is Matchmaker Bay’s new business grant. She’s got some serious competition, though: Benjamin “Law” Lawson, local bar owner, Jerk Extraordinaire, and Maya’s annoyingly hot arch nemesis. Let the games begin.

Law loves nothing more than getting under Maya’s skin, and making those gorgeous eyes dance with irritation. But when he discovers the ex-pop star has a thing for Maya, too, Law decides he’s done waiting in the wings-starting with a scorching-hot kiss. Turns out there’s a thin line between hate and irresistible desire, and Maya and Law are really good at crossing it. But when things heat up, will they allow their long-standing feud to get in the way of their growing feelings?

Includes the bonus novella Once Upon a Bride!


Sparkling, big-hearted, and fun! 

Sandcastle Beach is a warm, amusing, enemies-to-more romance that transports you to the idyllic Moonflower Bay, Ontario and introduces you to the hardworking bar owner, Law, who is determined to expand his legacy and grandfather’s lager house into something more, and the fiery, creative Maya, who will do whatever it takes to keep her beloved theatre company solvent, profitable, and still running.

The writing is tender and light. The characters are fun-loving, kind, and endearing. And the plot is a spirited, push-pull blend of family, friendship, rivalry, community, adversity, touching moments, palpable attraction, chemistry, humourous hijinks, and swoon-worthy romance.

Sandcastle Beach is another uplifting, humorous, addictively entertaining tale by Holiday that is absolutely perfect for anyone who loves a will-they-or-won’t-they romance that’s not only heartwarming but also incredibly sweet and comical.

About Jenny Holiday

Jenny Holiday is a USA Today bestselling author who started writing at age nine when her awesome fourth-grade teacher gave her a notebook and told her to start writing some stories. That first batch featured mass murderers on the loose, alien invasions, and hauntings. (Looking back, she’s amazed no one sent her to a shrink.) She’s been writing ever since. After a detour to get a PhD in geography, she worked as a professional writer, producing everything from speeches to magazine articles. Later, her tastes having evolved from alien invasions to happily-ever-afters, she tried her hand at romance. She lives in London, Ontario, with her family.
