Because many of the books I read are e-galleys, I don't often see the covers or synopsis before I read the books on my list. On Love's Gentle Shore gave me the impression that it might be an historical novel, and I wanted a change of pace. I finally settled down to read the book, and, boy, was I surprised.
This is the third novel in the Prince Edward Islands Dreams series, and while the novels have some of the same characters, it will stand alone pretty well by itself.
Natalie O'Ryan is returning to Prince Edward Island to get married. It wasn't her idea, nor her desire to marry in her home town. It held very few happy memories for her and lots of bitter ones where she was the object of all the town gossip.
Now she's having to plan her own wedding alone, because her fiance is called out of town for some kind of business emergency. Her only port in this particular storm is the only friend she ever had as a child growing up--Justin Kane.
Liz Johnson writes with incredible skill and her novels are so compelling and engaging they are extremely hard to put down. If it weren't for the fact that my dog wakes me up around 5:00 AM every morning, I'd stay up late reading her books. I really can't wait until her next one comes out.
This is a five-star, two thumbs up book, and a lighthouse to hide letters in.
My thanks to Revell Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book
