Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sullivan's contemporary debut deftly combines intrigue, romance, and witty banter...the sizzling passion between Dex and Maggie propels this page-turner forward to its explosive ending."—Publisher's Weekly

"4 stars! Sullivan brings a sensational sense of place to her first Windfall Island novel, immersing readers in the Maine island and its fascinating population - most notably her heroine, whose fortitude and no-nonsense exterior cover a heart of gold. Sullivan builds the tension between her lead characters and crafts a relationship so compassionate and reciprocal it is simply irresistible."—RT Book Reviews

About the Author

Anna Sullivan was born and raised in southeastern Michigan, the seventh of nine children, whose claim to fame was reading five books a week in grade school. Needless to say, her obsession with the written word only grew from there-despite a short, and misguided, foray into the world of computer science (the "sensible" job path). She still lives in Michigan, with her husband, three children and two dogs whose life of leisure she envies but would never be able to pull off.

Customer Reviews

There were some great characters in this story!
Cheryl Sanders
I was intrigued by the mystery and suspense and I look forward to the next book in this series.
Wendy Catalano
She was just too abrasive for me and it seemed like she never really came around.

Even though Maggie Solomon hadn’t been born on Windfall Island, she was one of the island’s favorite people. Beautiful, passionate and loyal, Maggie loved Windfall and it’s inhabitants with all her heart. As a charter pilot who just happens to bring ‘outsiders’ onto the island she was happiest when she brought them back to the mainland. However, her latest passenger Dexter Keegan was more than just a passenger arousing the natural curiosity of the island natives, as well as arousing feelings in Maggie that she hadn’t experienced in a very long time. Feelings that were both exciting and scary for a woman who was deathly afraid of being perceived as weak.

Dex, cop turned PI is on a covert mission to solve a 100 year old cold-case that could make or break his career: attempting to find information on the identity of the missing Stanhope heir, kidnapped nearly a century ago. And didn’t Maggie’s bright blue eyes seem to resemble exactly the same eyes as the very wealthy Stanhope clan? But when sabotage to Maggie’s Piper cub almost led to disaster - Dex will do anything to protect the woman he firmly believes is the only one for him.

*** In this contemporary mystery romance, author Sullivan created a delightful locale with a lovely bunch of quirky secondary characters - the kind of characters that you love and add a full richness to any story. In spite of the originality of Maggie, a beautiful charter pilot, it took me a bit to warm up to her as Ms. Sullivan created her with both a big chip on her shoulder and attitude galore. Naturally, it took a little while to discover the reasons why Maggie had such a bad attitude, but then it made sense and easier to relate to Maggie’s childhood pain and begin to understand her.

For the most part, the story line here is great. There's mystery, intrigue, history. It was all the makings of an awesome Romantic Suspense. But, the characters aren't very well developed. I liked Jessi, the best friend, more than I did Maggie, the main character. She's abrasive, rude, bitchy and miserable. I don't find the story sexy or very romantic at all. Dex is a moron for trying to keep at it with her. If anyone ever treated me the way she did, I'd take the hint that they didn't like me. Maybe if the characters were written better, the book would have been a higher ranking. As it stands, I just couldn't enjoy it. I may read the next one, just to see where the mystery of the story leads, but the romance of it does nothing for me.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

This book has several things going for it: It’s set on an island in Maine (which I love), the author has created very strong characters, and I liken the story as having a “Nora Roberts-esque” voice. I LOVED this book, and I’m dying because the next book in the series is not out until next March!

Maggie Solomon has lived on Windfall Island since her teen years, when her overbearing Navy officer father banished her and her mother there because Maggie wouldn’t fall in line with his orders. She has an ordered life, one she loves, where she runs the local airport, flies charters on her airplane and helicopter, and is fiercely protective of the islanders.

Maggie’s orderly life is thrown a curve when she flies in “lawyer” (but really a PI), Dex Keegan. He’s very closemouthed about what he’s doing on this tiny island, and won’t tell her anything until, in frustration, he has to take her into his confidence to get her help. He’s trying to find descendants of a baby kidnapped during prohibition, and that person is going to end up very rich. But he can’t ask questions outright because he’ll either have a flock of pretenders descend on him, or it could mean death – for him or the not-so-lucky Stanhope heir.

And sure enough, someone is out to stop Maggie and Dex from finding the truth. But what no one foresees, least of all Maggie and Dex, is that these two are drawn to each other. Yes, they drive each other to distraction, contention, and arguments, but there’s a bone-deep passion between them.

Anna Sullivan, the author, has a great voice.

"Temptation Bay" was appealing - small town romance; sassy, smart heroine; hero with a sense of humor (actually they both had a good humor); a strong mystery; and heat that sparked off the page.

Dex is on Windfall Island to find a missing heiress, but his work is a secret. Maggie is an islander who owns a plane service on the island and flies him over. There's an immediate physical attraction but they bump heads, particularly over the truth about his stay on the island. Maggie is spunky, quick-witted, and not afraid to speak her mind. Dex is also quick-witted and they enjoy sparring with each other. Maggie is frustrated with Dex's secretiveness about his visit to the island while Dex finds the locals aren't as easy to milk for information as he expected. There are some humorous scenes where some of the single island women aggressively pursue Dex. The islanders are independent, quirky but not overly so, and fiercely loyal to each other. Well, most of them. As in any population, there are predators and worms to gum up the works.

Maggie and Dex are great together and I was rooting for them to make their relationship work. Maggie has some emotional brick walls and Dex is determined to demolish them but respectfully. Things move quickly between them and there are some cliches but I could overlook them as I just loved Dex and Maggie together. I really liked Maggie and how she handled herself. She's nobody's doormat, a great friend, a skilled mechanic, and has a soft side.

Sullivan doles out clues and hints about the missing heiress and at least one of the locals is actively working to prevent Dex from finding her. Or is he? I can't decide if he is or if Sullivan is misleading us.
