In 1910, in the beautiful beach town of Carmel, California, artists congregate. Anna Lewis works as a nanny to two mischievous boys, but only until she can start selling her watercolor paintings. While Anna is painting a seascape one day, a man wanders into her view, and she absentmindedly sketches him into her painting, intrigued by his pensive nature.
Charles Jordan is supposed to be celebrating his marriage – but his bride jilted him at the altar – for his own cousin. Charles is living with his feisty great-aunt to recuperate and to finish his novel. Charles’s offhand comment about Anna’s painting offends her, but as life threatens to strip away her dreams, she finds herself drawn more and more into Charles’s life. But how could she care for a man who doesn’t respect her dreams?
Watercolor Dreams by Sherry Kyle charmed me. The breezy seaside setting, the historical details, and the entertaining side characters are delightful, but the theme and the conflicted characters take this sweet romance deeper. I highly recommend this novel!
