Walker Island is home to Hanna Walker. A young, beautiful and talented documentary film maker, she’s coming home, after spending four years away going to school. This yearning she has to make this film, of her beloved home and family and their feud with the Petersons, is her chance to enter graduate school and her dream. Her grandfather William Walker II was engaged to Poppy Peterson, but instead of marrying Poppy he married Ava, Hanna's grandmother. This caused resentment between the two families. Hanna wants to uncover the truth of the feud in her documentary; however there was one problem, Joel Peterson, a young school girl’s crush. He’s everything she remembered yet now he’s devastatingly handsome, sexy and consists of the very essence of male. Can she convince him to notice her as a serious film maker? Should she keep her feelings hidden from Joel? Does she want to keep her feelings hidden?
Joel Peterson’s family was betrayed by the Walkers! William Walker was a lying, double crossing, and scoundrel by marrying another woman, Ava. However, when Hanna Walker comes home to Walker Island he knew she was going to manipulate the facts to portray her family in a better light. One afternoon a young, beautiful and sexy woman walks into his office and he realizes its Hanna Walker. The film she wanted to make wasn’t his only concern: his reaction to her was devastating. The only way Joel was going to allow Hanna to make her film and not skew it towards her family, is if he worked alongside the witty, vibrant and all woman, Hanna Walker. Is he willing to betray his family honor by following his desire to have her? Will escorting Hanna around be too much for Joel to resist? Can they both put the past behind Hanna and Joel or is it to arduous to overcome their love? Are they willing to take the risk of a life time on happiness and love?
The whole thing left me with a lot of unanswered questions, like: What ever happened to his grandparents? His own parents? Did he ever have any siblings? This story is supposed to be about the two main families who have had a feud for over six long decades, over something that's turned out to be completely false information. Didn't either of these families not think to look into Poppy's disappearance a little deeper, back then? Why didn't Ava come clean way before this, especially when the truth would have cleared her name, and probably would have put an end to this silly feud?

The island's history seemed really fascinating as did the story of the character Joel's great aunt Poppy. Of course though, it was unlikely that no one else had speculated her death: considering that no body was found and that the poem didn't read (at all) like a suicide note.
It was written well, though a lot of the dialogue came across as too superficial. What I mean by that is the conversations between the characters were mostly cheerful, overly happy and lacking realism.
Further, I had an issue with the fact that for two sworn and mutual enemies they felt an attraction incredibly fast. Literally upon first sight. It'd have been better if the attraction, at first, had been clouded by their hatred for one another. Making it a more snarky, sarcastic and comical read.
Also the plot of the book was weak in that their relationship faced little to no physical and personal opposition. For example, the grandma was all for it, and the sisters were fairly accepting. Both/ all of whom would have been just as accepting had it been some other decent guy. And on Joel's side, he had no opposition whatsoever considering his family had moved on (his parents had passed). The opposition only came from a small minority of the townspeople. Thus, there was no bravery for the way they decided to have a relationship.
I'm going to stop now, before I start talking about the wedding and how soon it was. I mean come on, this book was not limited to the time constraints of a movie.
A young woman finishing a media course needs to make a documentary, and she doesn't just want it to be about whale watching. She wants to cover the story of her family and the island feud. However the young man she went to school with but didn't know, because he was from the other family, who runs the boat business, opposes the venture.
I liked that the girl has her own strong identity and is not just a channel through which the story of the feud is told. There is a nice sense of place and the romance is suitable for young adults. The title seems bland however, and not descriptive of the story or location. I would happily read more by this author.
Joel is the main obstacle. He doesn’t want her to do it because it may mean that her grandparents are then absolved of the actions they took. They got married and apparently broke Poppy’s heart.
However there is more to the story but I can’t spoil it. I will say this though, it is a sweet yet lovable romantic story about two people finding love with each other despite not really wanting it.
I loved it. I love Bella’s writing both as herself and as Lucy Kevin.
In Be my love we meet Hanna, she left the island four years ago... now she's back to do a story on the family feud in the 1950s, between the Walkers and the Peterson's.. To do that she has to take a look at the archive records, just one problem... The person that can show her them is Joel... Joel Peterson and he won't let her drag his family name through the mud.. But he also can't fight the feelings he's having for her.. I loved this first book in the series and can't wait to read more from the Walkers!!
