Book Description

Time for Love
The McCarthys of Gansett Island, Book 9

Dr. David Lawrence has spent the last two years atoning for his sins and recovering from the devastating breakup with Gansett Island golden girl Janey McCarthy. As the island’s only doctor, he’s had ample opportunity to show his fellow island residents that there’s more to him than the guy who disappointed Janey so profoundly. Now if only he could find a way to forgive himself, he might be able to move on with his life without the woman he’d expected to love forever…

Daisy Babson, probationary director of housekeeping at McCarthy’s Gansett Island Inn, is in bad need of a fresh start after her relationship with Truck Henry took a violent turn, leaving her battered and broken—in more ways than one. As she recovers from her injuries, her days are made brighter by her visits with David Lawrence. The kind and caring doctor who tended to her after the attack has become much more than a friend to her in recent weeks.

Will these two wounded hearts take comfort from one another and move forward on a new path toward love together? Or will ghosts from the past derail them before they get the chance for their own happily ever after?

Catch up with many of your favorite characters from earlier books in the McCarthys of Gansett Island Series, and get set for another summer of love on Gansett!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved loved loved!!!! July 23, 2013

What can I say?!?! Marie Force has done it again. The continuing saga of Gansett island was so full of every kind of emotion, love, laughter, pain, confusion and so much heart. I have enjoyed each story in this series. What a wonderful continuation. David and Daisy were amazing. Loved the way they helped each other heal, especially by being friends first. They understood each other and accepted each other unconditionally. So amazing.

It was also great to see some of the rest of the characters and what they were doing. This series is just such a feel good, like you are a part of their family, heartwarming story. Marie Force does not do the story in a predictable way but in a surprising way I would not have thought of and makes it that much more delightful. I look forward to the next book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved IT! It was like coming home. July 24, 2013
By Hearts
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Honestly, it was great to have all the stories in one. It was such a fast read and so enjoyable. I loved David and Daisy's story, even if a little too perfect. I really wanted to yell "just say the wrong thing once", but it probably would have not made it so nice for a fictional story. I really loved checking in on all the other Gansatt couples (even if I suspect prozac in the water). It felt like coming home. Marie writes so well, it just reads fast. I was stuck on a plane all day yesterday and it was great to be emersed on Gansatt (aka Block) island and not a giant tube at the expense of a bankrupt airline (seriously I wonder)! Thank you Marie, I have read all of your books, they are always safe, happy and a GREAT PLACE to visit. Much better than where I was physically located - stuck in a radiation tube hurtling through the air at a high rate of speed with crying children, stinky people and angry employees. THANK YOU!!!

Marie force has done it once again. As a reader, I'm always drawn right in to the Gansett family. David & Daisy's story was just right. As always, revisiting the other characters is so satisfying. Unfortunately, I devoured it in a day and now I can't wait for book #10. Hurry Marie, please!

I loved this trip back to Gansett Island. All the books in this series are wonderful and this one is no exception. It has a wonderful story line... family, friendship, redemption and of course romance! Pull up a rocking chair on the porch, grab a glass of tea and join the McCarthy's on Gansett Island.. you will be glad you did!

2.0 out of 5 stars What happened? August 15, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed every Gansett Island book until this one. It took me days to get through this book while the others took a few days. I didn't like how the story line was developed between Daisy and David. In fact I would say the relationship went from abusive husband(?) or boyfriend (really how can a woman go out with a man named Truck) to the Doctor who moped for the last 2 years. They were both insecure and while saving Janey's life David was concerned about not saying anything to Daisy. Daisy was not happy about that. I got tired of Daisy's sudden turn around with sex with David - scared one day and then gung ho the next day. While I am at it I am so tired of hearing about Tiffany and Blaine and their love life. At least in this book there was little mention about her store. I don't know what happened to Ms. Force with this book. In fact I will say it is my least favorite. I might end my Gansett Island adventures and reread Book 8 as the end to the series

Time for Love
The McCarthy's of Gansett Island book 9
By Marie Force
Review by: Wendy
3.5 Stars

David Lawrence is the island resident doctor. He shocked and disappointed the locals when he cheated on Janey Macarthy. Two years later he has slowly made people see him differently, especially when he saved baby Hailey Macarthy from a certain death, had he not been there.

Daisy Babson has been through a horrible ordeal when he boyfriend Truck Henry beat her within an inch of her life and attempted to rape her.

Daisy has been David's patient, and they both have come to enjoy each others company, but both are reluctant to act on it. The question is, when is the right Time for Love?

First let me say that I have been a huge fan of this series. The first book Maid for Love was free on Amazon, and I was a goner after that.
So I am going to assume since this is book 9, that you have read the other books. I guess this could be a stand alone book, but I think a lot of back story would be lost. So if you haven't read the others, I really recommend you start with book 1.

I say this, because I am really torn on how I feel about this installment. I think it's safe to say that everyone hated David for the things he did to sweet Janey McCarthy. He broke her heart, but if not for that, she never would have realize that Joe Cantrell had been in love with her. When David came back into the picture I really wondered if there would be a redemption for him & he started to chisel away at the ice around my heart when he saved baby Hailey. Once David started helping Daisy out after her brutal attack, I liked him a little more. There was a definite chemistry between them.

Love the Gansett Series. Feel like I'm visiting old friends at a vacation house. Great as a series but you can read it alone as well as the author quickly reintroduces everyone.
