The Gansett Island Series, 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 Gansett Island Series, and get set for another summer of love on Gansett!

She's waited a long time for her second chance at love...

It's been twelve years since Jenny Wilks lost her fiancé in the 9/11 attacks in New York City. Since then she's been floundering, trying to find her way. Taking the job as lighthouse keeper on Gansett Island was the best thing she could've done for herself. On the island she's found amazing friends and a wonderful new life. There's only one thing missing and that's romance. She's recently asked her new friends to fix her up with some of the island's more eligible men. While her friends are busy arranging dates for her, Alex Martinez comes to cut the grass at the lighthouse.

He's given up everything to come home to Gansett to care for his ailing mother...

Alex has gone from cultivating orchids at the US Botanic Garden in Washington to cutting grass on Gansett, like he did as a teenager. Running the family business with his brother while managing their mother's dementia requires Alex's undivided attention until a sexy lighthouse keeper shows him there's much more to life than work and endless obligation.

During a scorching summer heat wave on Gansett, Jenny and Alex take comfort in each other, and what begins as a hot summer fling quickly becomes something much more lasting. But will it hold up beyond the heat wave when real life intrudes on their sexy interlude?

Catch up with many of your favorite characters from past Gansett Island books in this latest installment in the New York Times bestselling McCarthys of Gansett Island Series!

CHANCE FOR LOVE, A Gansett Island Novella

Billionaire Jared James has everything a man could ever want except for the one thing money can't buy...

After forty days holed up in his house on Gansett Island nursing a broken heart, Jared James decides enough is enough. Determined to snap out of the funk he slipped into after his girlfriend refused his marriage proposal, Jared organizes a party for the friends who've seen him through the worst of his heartache. Now if only he could stop thinking about the love of his life and how he will survive the rest of his days without her...

She was Elisabeth all her life until Jared made her his Lizzie...

Elisabeth "Lizzie" Sutter knows she has no business chasing Jared after she turned down his lovely, heartfelt marriage proposal in a moment of sheer panic. It didn't take long for her to realize how foolish she'd been. Now all she can do is hope it's not too late to set things right with the one man she can't live without...

Author's Note
We got to know Jared in Time for Love, when David and Daisy befriended David's elusive landlord who'd come to the island seeking refuge after a bad breakup. We saw him again inMeant for Love, when he reconnected with Wharton classmate Jenny Wilks. Readers were eager to know more about the woman who'd broken Jared's heart, and they wanted to know what I had in store for him. The more I thought about his story, the more I realized what I needed to do. I hope you'll enjoy this brief visit with some Gansett Island friends as well as the introduction of a new couple.
