Staying Grounded is my first book by Marianne Rice. This book was a pleasant surprise. Ms Rice has delivered a well-written book. I loved the characters in Staying Grounded, they fit the story perfectly. Graham and Maggie's tale is loaded with humor, drama and sizzle. I enjoyed reading Staying Grounded and look forward to reading more from Marianne Rice in the future. Staying Grounded is book 1 of the Rocky Harbor Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
