About this ebook

The last place in the world he wants to be is on Gansett Island…

Deacon Taylor stepped up for a friend and got himself thrown in jail, and when he’s given a choice of felony charges or leaving town with his police chief brother Blaine, he chooses the latter, consigning himself to a summer under his annoying older brother’s supervision. 

Julia Lawry used the last of her resources to come to Gansett for her sister Katie’s wedding and has no idea how she’s going to get back to Texas to clean up the mess she left behind. Another relationship has ended in dramatic fashion, and she’s put herself on a “dick diet,” swearing off men who use and discard her. 

When Deacon talks Julia into taking off with him during her sister’s wedding, neither of them can know how that wild ride on his motorcycle will be the start of the most important journey either of them will ever take. 

Another summer on Gansett Island is heating up, and love is in the air!

5 Star Review of Trouble After Dark (Gansett Island #19) by Marie Force This is Deacon Taylor and Julia Lawry’s story and one that drew me in I immediately and kept me I’m Estes from the first to he last chapter. I have a new book boyfriend; there was nothing that I would change about Deacon. He is totally swoon worth, a bit of a bad boy with a heart of gold and ticked all the boxes for me. Julia, what a woman.; there were times that my heart just about broke for her with everything she has been through. Ms. Force tackled some serious issues with care and dignity and I appreciated how she handled them. There were times I must admit, that Blaine’s attitude towards Deacon really annoyed me, it fact I wanted to punch him out. This was a sweet,funny and wonderful love story that was at times a roller coaster for the emotions. I really loved the friendship that evolved between Deacon and Julia and in turn it added such a deeper connection to their love story. It is always great to read a new story about Gansett Island, it’s like coming home to your family as you get to catch up with what is going on in all their lives. This book as with others in the series was an extremely well written, sweet, sexy and romantic book. A fantastic addition to the series and the narration by Joan Delaware added to my listening pleasure. Although, having said that I do think that a male narrator for the men would really have another layer, but then that is just my opinion.

I always find trips to Gansett Island charming, entertaining, and delightful, and this one was no different. As Owen and Katie's sister Julia and Blaine's trouble maker brother Deacon take centre stage. In what was a sweet, funny and enthralling story. That had lots going on including an utterly engaging romance, surprise weddings, anxiety attacks and a regular McCarthy baby boom, and it's safe to say, I was hooked throughout, and can't wait for my next visit in 2020!! Would definitely recommend.
