Osburn, is the third book I ve read by this author I have also read a short story she did for an anthology This one has a different feel to it than the others I ve read which is a good thing It keeps things interesting I would categorize this as a slow burn romance with a twist It has a hero and heroine you can t help but to love and an assortment of quirky secondary characters to make it fun Read on and I ll tell you all about it.Liza Teller always wanted to be an author Her first book somehow became a best seller but since then, she hasn t been able to come up with a single idea for a second book She lives in New York in a tiny apartment she inherited from her Grandmother and is currently working on trying to mend her relationship with her estranged father Her mother has passed away Liza s agent and best friend received an offer for Liza to ghost write a memoir for an elderly man that has lived the last thirty years on Haven Island, South Carolina She would live on the island for a month while working on the book She has no idea why Ray Wallis requested her for this project She has never written a memoir before but she has a keen interest in history and she can t wait to hear all about his life.Even though Liza is an introvert, she is used to the noise of New York So her first steps off the ferry onto the island remind her of every scary movie she s ever seen There are no cars on the island, only golf carts And the place seems deserted Although she is surrounded by nature s beauty, she is imagining all sorts of scenarios and wonders if maybe she made a mistake Especially when her ride finally shows up, a huge hulk of a man with a very scary looking dog in the back seat And the man seems to dislike her on sight for some reason Kendall James works for Ray Wallis just as his father did Kendall spent his youth living between his father on the island and his mother on the main land But once he returned from serving in the military, his life has been on the island Ray is like a surrogate grandfather to him and he is fiercely protective of him He is completely against Ray divulging his life story to this unknown writer To say that his relationship with Liza got off to a rough start would be an understatement But that spark was also there, it just took them both awhile to recognize it for what it was Liza would never have imagined that she would fall in love with this island and all it s beauty Liza even fell in love with Kendall s dog, Amos, the smiling pit bull, even though she had never interacted with a dog before She is fascinated with Ray s story He was born in the twenties and had so much history that he had lived through It was obvious, though, that there were some things she didn t yet understand What was the relationship between he and Kendall And why did Ray suddenly decide to live this life of solitude on this island The relationship between Liza and Kendall grew every day Neither were the one night stand sort of people Liza lived in New York and Kendall lived here There was no hope of anything permanent developing so they would have to be happy with just being friends But with the sparks flying between them, that becomes impossible Liza also found the flood gates opened in her imagination with all sorts of book ideas as she met the other residents of the island She could barely concentrate on the job she was here for while all these ideas kept popping out of her head This really was such a good book I loved watching the relationship develop between Liza and Kendall I also loved getting to know Ray and couldn t wait to find out what secrets he was hiding The adorable smiling dog, Amos, was a scene stealer I am also a very introverted person and I have to admit that life on this island is so appealing to me I could definitely picture myself loving this life except for the millions of dollars it would take to purchase a home there I did feel like there was to tell, though, at the end Who made the mysterious offer on Kendall s house And who will inherit all of Ray s holdings If you are looking for a sweet romance with a bit of intrigue, then you will enjoy this book For about this book

but it just felt very different to me than what I am used to from this author I did enjoy this book, at first it felt slow to me, a bit like the movie Groundhog Day, but then it picked right up, and I really started to get into it I did figure a few things out rather quickly though No spoilers here, sorry L.R Teller or Liza is an author, she is a definite introvert She lives in N.Y City in a tiny apartment her grandmother left to her She has had one best selling book but now her idea well has totally dried up With no ideas and nothing else to do she has taken on a job to write the memoirs of a man named Ray Wallis who lives on an island named Haven Island, which is off the coast from South Carolina That is all she really knows except for the huge advance she got for coming here to do this and that he requested only her be the one to do it Kendall James has been living on the island since he was a little boy Well he lived both on the island and off with his mom His mom didn t like living on the island, but his dad did Plus, his dad worked for Ray So, his dad set his mom and him up in a house off the island, but he would come and stay with his dad from time to time He is the handyman on the island He owns rental properties as well as takes care of and watches out for Ray Wallis.Liza comes to the island with a few suspicions, while waiting for her ride she finds the island a bit odd But she needs the job, so she goes with it Kendall is the one that is going to pick Liza up at the dock, but he thinks she is a man Imagine the surprise when he finds out she isn t Not to mention he doesn t want Ray to do this book at all Seems there are secrets that are better left in the past, but even Kendall had no idea about some of them and how big they are Kendall and Liza spar like crazy when together But there is an undercurrent of attraction there as well Liza starts the interview with Ray and as she gets to know him, she really starts to like him She also notices that he is not all that well He goes from being chipper to being in bed and ill He also asks her many questions about her family while she asks him her questions The longer she is on the island the she loves it She also starts to get along with Kendall and they both are attracted to each other But neither want a short term thing When Liza first landed on this island she couldn t wait to leave Do the job go home Now, she finds herself wondering if she could live there She has found the people to be wonderful, and there are things to do Plus, if you need to eat out or have to do take the ferry across and you can do all things you want to It is like having the best of both worlds Liza has changed, but when she finds out why she was the one picked for this job her whole world will be thrown upside down She must leave the island, feeling she can t stay in Ray s house When Kendall finds her and finds out she is leaving, she is secretly hoping he will ask her to stay with him, will he She is so crushed by everything she has learned Will they get their stuff together Will Liza forgive Ray what he has done and told her before it is too late.The island and its people which are great are changing Liza, or is she changing being around them The sparring between Liza and Kendall kept me laughing, it was the perfect mix of being drawn to each other and trying to keep away Her relationship with everyone was very down to earth, real She herself was a bit over the top at the beginning, but she was an introvert after all The chapters ran well, the characters were developed and help make the book entertaining The ending was perfect I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did I received a free, advance copy of this book via NetGalley This is my unbiased and voluntary review flag 2
