I was offered this book in exchange for an honest review by Nadine, and was so glad that she asked me!
This story is about 2 sisters (Kate/Heroine and Jen) who run/manage hotels, and are now assigned to run the brand new hotel 'The Bounty's Retreat' on the beautiful Isle of Pitcairn. Coincidentally their parents lived on the island but left before they were born. It starts off with them traveling to Pitcairn on boat, but when they arrive near the island they actually transfer to another boat that takes them to shore. Which has Kate nervous as hell because she thinks she will fall into the sea. At first I thought Kate's love interest was going to be Captain Drew, from the first boat that they started out on. But soon realized it was going to be the Captain of the Longboat that they've transferred to, named Bryce.
And what a love interest he turned out to be *fans self*
Bryce is a local, knows his island, his boat, everything by the back of his hand and now this beautiful woman falls into his life, you can tell that she's thrown him of his game a little bit since a while ago he'd sworn to himself he would be a permanent bachelor. He's helped build the hotel, as well as the other islanders. He's kind of like the Do-It-All kind of guy of the island. What woman wouldn't want a man like that? Knowledgeable, good with his hands, good looking??? Ms. Christian wrote her characters very smart for this book. She made them all extremely loveable to the reader, and even had you feeling sorry for the villain of the book Celia.
This book has a great cast of characters with a well thought out story line, and I enjoyed it very, very much! I have definitely recommended this book to friends and will continue to do so with the rest of her work from now on. Can't wait to see what else she writes up for us in the future!
The island way of living is very charming in itself, and that reflects from her writing, seeing how she lives on one. I would love to someday visit and meet great people who go out of their way to help others with anything they needed. There needs to be more people like this in the world.
