Charming, Romantic, Can’t Put It Down Love Story October 23, 2015
I LOVED Rachelle’s follow up book to Anchored in the Bay. Both books are really well written and I couldn’t put either of them down. Endearing characters that you fall in love with early and root for until the end. I highly recommend this entertaining read to any modern romance lovers out there. Plus the unique setting of Northern Wisconsin gives this book a unique charm all it’s own.
Cute and sweet with a side of frustration October 13, 2015
I enjoyed this read. I liked that the author did not have the heroine sleeping around, but rather stuck to her own standards. I had to warm up to Darcy. She was a little stiff in the beginning. I liked Eric, Charlotte, Ben and John, though Ben should have been slapped for many of the stunts he pulled. He was all sorts of frustrating. This is a cute romance that is sure to make you smile and frown. I wanted another chapter or two!
I received this book from KindleScout.

It’s Tiny Island Summer’s book birthday! I’m so excited for you to read the next book in my True North series. Ben is a hero to fall for (who doesn’t love a guy that’s hot, rich, AND loves his mother, right?) and Darcy has met her match with him.

Thanks for all your support! I hope you love this book and can’t wait to share the next book in the series, coming next year.

Back cover blurb: 

Thanks to her job, Darcy Rogus has been relocated to the middle of nowhere. But with her determination to succeed and her best friend by her side, nothing is going to sidetrack Darcy achieving her career goals, especially not a handsome and brooding next-door neighbor.

Ben Hampton has put his life on hold to take care of his ailing mother, and he can’t let himself get distracted by anything, even if those distractions come with enticing hazel eyes.

Staying away from each other is easier said than done on an island of less than three hundred people.
