IMO- Slim acted like a total Prince Charming in this story. He knew just when to turn on the romance, but also when to throw in a funny line or two to lighten the mood, when things got to tough for Erin to handle. He was so intune with her every move, it was like he could see right into her head and know exactly what she was thinking and feeling, at any given moment. He stuck with her through both the good times, and the bad. And I was so happy that he was with her when she had needed him the most. That right there proved to me just how good of a man he was. He not only took over and did what he could to make things easier for her, but her also stuck by her side through it all. He made me drool more than once, that's for sure.
Erin was so sweet, but she had been living her life in limbo for far too long, and all because she was so afraid of getting herself hurt again. The scene at Jenny's house tore my heart out and made me bawl like a big baby. I wanted to reach out and hug Erin so badly; assure her that everything would be fine. But I didn't have to, because thankfully, she had her good friend and Slim to do it for me. Her move to Gansett was probably the best thing she'd ever done. She'd made she really good friends, her made it impossible for her to hide herself away like she'd been doing for years. Then along came Slim who made her feel like she could do anything, as long as she would just believe in herself.
I was pulling for these two all the way....... And while I thoroughly enjoyed their story, I was so, so glad we got to re-visit with a lot of our other favorites from past books, too. What I like best about this series is that no one seems to be forgotten from book to book. Past main characters decorate the book with updated chapters of their live now.
There are only about six or seven series by my all time favorite authors that I follow religiously. Like Marie Force; some of these authors have several series, some completed, and some still in progress. Series that have touched my heart so deeply that I tend to read over and over again, and this just happens to be one of those series I will always cherish with all my heart.
I have read this whole series so many times now, that I've actually I've lost count. I have the whole series up to this point; and whenever I start to feel down out I reach for these books as a pick me up. They always seem to do the trick for me. I feel myself relaxing and even smiling more...even for no reason at all..
My all time favorite couple in this series will always be Mac & Maddie. I think it's mainly because they were the ouple that started this series off with a bang. But also because you can always count on them to make everyone laugh. The two of them can also be a force to reckon'd with when they are together, but they are even outrageous & hysterical when they start plotting their revenges against the oposite sex. They sure made me laugh in this book, that's for sure! And the kids antic's on Christmas day at Big Mac & Linda's house, had me laughing so hard I almost pee'd my pants. I could picture that whole scene playing out so clearly in my head. And the way the McCarthy siblings carried on made me laugh even harder. Tiffany is always a hoot, and if Blaine thinks he has his hands full now....just wait until that little one becomes a teenager! Ha!
I have no clue who the next book will be about, but I have no doubt it'll be just as good as the ones we've already read. Selfishly; I just hope this series never ends!!!
And lastly....I would like to Congradulate Marie Force on publishing her 50th. book. That's a feat in it own, but doing it within the short time-span she did it in, to me at least, is even more amazing. CHEERS TO YOU MARIE FORCE! Now onward to the next 50!!!
Once again Marie Force brings you back to Gansett Island to reconnect with the McCarthy family and all their friends. It's wonderful to see and feel the love that they easily share with one another. It just draws you in! Erin and Slim's story was just wonderful. After 15 years Erin still struggles with the tragic death of her twin brother. Each day brings its own challenges in overcoming the fear that now controls Erin's life. Seeing how Slim loves her and unconditionally supports her through this journey was inspiring. It's was so nice to watch them come to the realization that they needed each other and they were in love. It was a truly touching love story.
While reading about Erin and Slim's love story, Marie Force lets the reader catch up with some of the characters from previous books. Marie is so talented at weaving in her other characters that you always feel excited about seeing what they're all up to. You feel like you're reconnecting with old friends and family. Watching the McCarthy's tease each other is often hysterically heartwarming. Their relationships with each other are always filled with love and unending support. I loved the scenes where they joke around with each other. Little Thomas' innocent comments were too precious. I couldn't stop laughing!
Once again Marie wrote a wonderful, emotional love story that not only entertained me but also touched my heart. As always this story was over too soon but I truly enjoyed my visit to Gansett Island. I can't wait for the next story to take me back! Thank you Marie for sharing your talent with your fans. Congratulations on your 50th book! Can't wait for your next book Fatal Identity that's coming out in July! It's time to reconnect with Sam and Nick!
