Return To Pelican Inn | Dana Mentink Marathon


Today I am reviewing Return to Pelican Inn, the first book in the Love By Design series, by Dana Mentink.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Her design scheme didn’t include him!

Struggling interior designer Rosa Franco and her twin brother, Cy, are bent on transforming the timeworn Pelican Inn into the jewel of the California coast, even if it kills them.

And it will kill Rosa if they fail. Their business, and her future, depend on winning the Great Escapes Magazine design contest that lured them back to the town where some of her best–and worst–memories were forged.

Memories like those of Pike Matthews, the innkeeper’s nephew, her high school heartthrob turned humiliator, now infiltrating himself into every aspect of the project.

Is he purposely frustrating her efforts?

Behind that killer smile is he carrying a grudge…or a torch?


This is such an awesome series!

Romance… Intrigue… Danger… Laughter…

Dana Mentink takes her readers on an adventure they won’t soon forget.

Oh boy, does it start out with a bang! Just when Rosa has designed the perfect library, she loses the job. Of course, that’s the way things have turned out for her since high school. Why would she expect things to get better?

After she’s convinced to return to Pelican Inn; after entering the “Great Escapes” magazine contest, she runs headlong into several people she’d rather have never seen again. But fate is working overtime for Rosa…

I can’t say too much or reveal any spoilers, so let me just assure you right now — this is a fantastic story! A story you’ll fall into — and you’ll want to stay.

What happens with Rosa? and Cy? and Pike?

Don’t wait another minute… get a copy and find out for yourself. But hurry, because tomorrow, I’ll be reviewing the second book in this series… Sailing In Style!
