On Love's Gentle Shore
Fifteen years after she left Prince Edward Island, Natalie O'Ryan had no plans to return. But when her fiancé, music producer Russell Jacobs, books their wedding in her hometown and schedules a summer at Rose's Red Door Inn, she sets out to put the finishing touches on the perfect wedding. But she can't possibly prepare for a run-in with Justin Kane--the best friend she left behind all those years ago after promising to stay.
Justin's never forgotten Natalie or the music career he always dreamed of pursuing. He'd been prepared to follow her off the island until his dad died and he was left to run the family dairy farm. He's done the best he can with the life that was thrust upon him--but with Natalie back in the picture, he begins to realize just how much joy he's been missing.
After Natalie's reception venue falls through, she must scramble to find an alternative, and the only option seems to be a barn on Justin's property. As they work together to get the dilapidated building ready for the party, Natalie and Justin discover the groundwork for forgiveness--and that there may be more than an old friendship between them.
My thoughts: I enjoyed the return to Prince Edward Island and catching up with the characters from this series who feel like old friends. The series is a lot of fun and I love the taste of island life/culture! I also enjoyed the introduction of Justin and Natalie and their history together, and how that fit in with the present and her hopes for a future with Russell.
This is an excellent series about dreams, love, and finally finding a place to belong.
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
