Praise for Sanctuary Island

“I didn’t read this book, I inhaled it.  An incredible story of love, forgiveness, healing and joy. “ –Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Sanctuary Island is a novel to curl up with and enjoy by a crackling fire or on a sunny beach. It’s a beautifully told story of hope and forgiveness, celebrating the healing power of love. Lily Everett writes with warmth, wisdom and deep insight. The island, with its wild horses and natural beauty, is a place of dreams, and the story will live in your heart long after the book is closed." –Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Willow Lake series

“I loved it!  A rare find.” –Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author of The First Love Cookie Club

“A heartwarming, emotional, extremely romantic story that I couldn't read fast enough! Enjoy your trip to Sanctuary Island! I guarantee you won't want to leave.” --Bella Andre, New York Times bestselling author of The Sullivan series

“With richly nuanced characters and able plotting…Everett’s sweet contemporary debut illustrates the power of forgiveness and the strength of relationships that may falter but never fail.” –Publishers Weekly

"I loved learning about Sanctuary Island and I felt as if I was there seeing and feeling everything first hand.  A wonderful book to get lost in for a few hours. I definitely recommend it to other readers." – Night Owl Reviews

The nostalgic, almost introspective story of a young woman, the mother who neglected her, and the wounded man who will walk the road to a happy ending with her. The story is the perfect blend of Romance and Woman’s fiction that will equally satisfy readers of both genres as well as those who meet in the middle.” – Heroes and Heartbreakers

 

“Everett’s newest novel is stirring. She skillfully blends the tender story of two daughters reuniting with their estranged mother with the love story of two emotionally closed people desperately trying to move toward each other. Readers will eagerly anticipate its sequel.” – RT Bookreviews

“I couldn’t help but fall in love with Sanctuary Island and want to move there myself.  This was an enchanting romance that swept me away!” –Books N Kisses

“Lily has a talent for metaphors that make me melt…and I love the way she ties the story together.  I’m so looking forward to the next book in the series.”  --USA Today’s Happily Ever After Blog

“Everett captures the very special relationship sisters have….A good comfort read, Sanctuary Island a very peaceful place where you could cure all of your ills with ease.” –A Bookish Affair

“A satisfying read about family, loyalty, taking risks, and love that any fan of women’s fiction would enjoy.” –Kindles and Wine

"A riveting tale of overcoming fear and emotional roadblocks, SANCTUARY ISLAND makes you fall in love with the island and its inhabitants.  Author Lily Everett brings tears, laughter and a happy-ever-after smile to your face while you're experiencing her well-written, compassionate novel.  I highly recommend SANCTUARY ISLAND as a "no excuses" emotional fight for a happy life in a book that hits home with real-to-life characters." – Romance Junkies

"SANCTUARY ISLAND is indeed a wonderful place to escape to...a place where dreams and healing walk hand in hand." –Romance Reviews Today

"A remarkable debut that perfectly blends family, forgiveness, love, and hope into one richly rewarding story." – Reader to Reader

About the Author

Lily Everett grew up in a small town in Virginia reading Misty of Chincoteague and Black Beauty, taking riding lessons, and longing for a horse of her own. Sadly, her parents gave her a college education instead—but she never forgot what the world looked like from the back of a horse. She currently lives in Austin, Texas, where she writes full-time. Her books include Sanctuary Island and The Fireside Inn.


More About the Author

Lily Everett grew up in a small town in central Virginia, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Although she's lived many other places since, from college in Philadelphia to her first job in New York City and her current home in Austin, Texas, she never forgot the beauty and warmth of her little hometown. She is thrilled to be writing the Sanctuary Island series full time because it allows her to combine her longstanding love of romance with the memories of her childhood home.

After reading Shoreline Drive I will buy any book that Lily Everett publishes. Her writing style is fantastic, her characters are well developed, and the storyline flows seamlessly. The story contains Ben, very alpha male, and Merry, a single mom that wants for her child what she never had. I think I fell in love with Ben from the very first chapter. He is gruff and says what he thinks, but when you read from his point of view, you just melt. He has a hard exterior and a very soft, romantic heart. Merry is tough, sensible, and perfect for Ben. Their story is realistic, not insta-love, and not always easy. The angst is light, but the love is real. A very sweet romance where the steamy scenes start, but are finished behind closed doors. Grab this book, find a comfortable spot, and enjoy the world of Shoreline Drive!

Loved this book from the beginning. I just wished I had read the first one in the series before reading this one but a book that is one you can read by itself without having read the first one.

Ben is a veterinarian who is called to deliver Merry baby because of the bad weather a regular doctor cannot get there and she does not have time to get to a hospital. After he delivers her baby he decides he wants them to be his finally someday.

A few months later he asked her to marry, but they decides it will be a marriage convenience. But ends up being more.

The book gets really exciting at the end when her baby father comes back, really feel bad for Ben since he loves them so much.

This is a very good book and definitely recommend it. This was my first book by Lily Everett and will read more by her.

Oh, I liked this one. A gruff loner veterinarian with a crush on a sunny younger woman with a baby. He can't emotionally risk so he proposes a marriage of convenience. Fun!

I haven't read the rest of the books in this series but I plan to do so. I didn't need to have read them to enjoy this one.

The heat level is very low and behind closed doors but you still feel the heat. The small town, other characters and the hero and heroine come together to make this a moving romance with very human lovers.

There is some high drama around his parents that I felt was a bit over the top and took from the realism of the story of single motherhood and the hero's grief but overall I excited to have discovered this writer.

It was just what I wanted in a contemporary marriage of convenience romance!

Take one curmudgeonly veterinarian, one estranged unwed mother trying to mend her ways and a town who accepts everyone. Well almost everyone as you will see when you read this story. Ben is an introvert whose mission is to care for all pets, especially rescue animals. Merry and her sister were messed up when Mom left the family due to alcohol. Merry is back with a baby trying to mend broken fences. Ben is called in to deliver Merry's baby and has his past history come back to him. Add in defiant teens, Ben's rich parents, a rescue stallion and Merry's ex lover and you have an awesome book. I love this series and Lily's real people characters. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

I would rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. I find that I am becoming a huge fan of Lily Everett's writing. According to Goodreads, this is the second Sanctuary Island book. I have not read the first book and had no trouble keeping up with this book. I have read several of Everett's novellas that were also set on the island and a few of the locations were familiar to me because of that.

This book is focused on Merry and Ben. Ben is the local vet who takes care of all of the animals on the island. Merry goes into labor at the beginning of the book and Ben is there to help deliver the baby. Merry, a single mother, is determined to be a good mother to her baby, Alex. Ben feels a connection to both Merry and Alex and asks Merry to marry him. The couple approach marriage as a business deal and attempt to leave emotions out of the equation but both secretly harbor feelings for each other. Just as they start to falling in love with each other, Ben's parents show up to cause trouble for the couple.

It is no secret that I read a lot. The basic plot of the book was one that I have read before. What sets this book apart for the others for me was the execution of the plot. I found the characters to be believable and well developed. I liked the fact that the author did not rely on sex as the main vehicle for the couple to fall in love. The sex in this book is really left to the reader's imagination.

I would recommend this book to any romance reader. I plan to look for future works in this series and by this author.

Once I learned that Louisa Edwards was writing in a new sub-genre as Lily Everett, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. What Edwards did for steamy-foodie romance, Everett is doing for emotional, heart-tugging romance. This is the second book in the new Sanctuary Island series and again, the story involves one of the Preston sisters, this time, Merry.

This book was charming and heart-breaking and displayed the incredible power of love, forgiveness and healing. I absolutely fell in love with the curt and gruff 'Doc' Ben, the island vet and all-around cranky and distant man. The character was deeply developed in a way that helped you to see and understand why Ben portrayed an image of himself that was so disconnected from his true feelings. Merry was the light that shone down on Ben and parted the clouds of his misery and self-inflicted isolation. It was beautiful to watch these two help each other to become the individuals they were meant to be. That deep, emotional connection is often missing in your standard romance and I, for one, truly enjoyed being on that journey with them.

I didn't enjoy the side-story with Taylor; however, I see that it was necessary to fully involve the whole family in the story. This story was well-written and well developed. I enjoyed the intimacy that the author created with her characters and I look forward to where she takes this series next.

I received a copy of this title from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
