The first book in the Marie Force's Gansett Island series was one of the first Romance novels I ever read. I had just received my first Kindle and was looking for free books to read in my spare time. I have always been a reader, but since college had trended towards biographies or historical books. Something about Maid for Love caught my eye and honestly my life has been forever changed. Since then I've started reading, blogging, and writing romance novels. It's been quite a journey over the past few years. This series has continued to be a big part of that journey. One of the things that Marie does well is mixing "real life" with romance. Everything isn't always perfect on Gansett Island. Sometimes a woman has a miscarriage. Sometimes a couple is unable to have children of their own. In this case, a woman who lost her twin brother is still struggling to find her place and risk loving and losing again. Erin has been the lighthouse keeper for a couple of books now (and may I editorialize and say best. job. ever!), and is really starting to find her place on the island and make friends when she meets Slim. Slim has been around for most of the series, but we've never really got to know him aside from the fact he is a reliable pilot. It was interesting to get to know him better and see him work to help Erin as they fell in love. Of course, all the rest of the Gansett cast was around, and my personal favorite couple of Owen and Laura had a fair amount of "screen time" as well. If you haven't ever read any of the Gansett books, it's about time you've caught up! If you have read them, be sure and check out the latest installment, which is everything we've come to expect from Marie Force, who never disappoints.
