Review: On Love's Gentle Shore by Liz Johnson

About the book:
Natalie O'Ryan had no plans to return to Prince Edward Island. But when her fiancé books their wedding in her hometown and schedules a summer at Rose's Red Door Inn, she sets out to plan the perfect wedding. Yet she can't possibly plan for a run-in with Justin Kane--the best friend she left behind all those years ago after promising to stay.

Justin has never forgotten Natalie. He'd been prepared to follow her off the island until tragedy struck, leaving him to run the family dairy farm. He's done the best he can with the life that was thrust upon him--but with Natalie back in the picture, he begins to realize just how much joy he's been missing.

After Natalie's reception venue falls through, she must scramble to find an alternative, and the only option seems to be a barn on Justin's property. As they work together to get the dilapidated building ready for the party, Natalie and Justin may discover that there is more between them than broken promises and an old friendship.

My thoughts:

On Love's Gentle Shore is the third and, I think, final book in the Prince Edward Island Dreams series. It is also my favorite of the series, which is a surprise considering I wasn't sure about the romance in the beginning...I mean, the heroine was engaged at the start of the book and yet it seemed like there was going to be a romance between her and her old beau -- or at least there were sparks -- and unless it was done right, I knew I wouldn't like the breaking up of a relationship that was serious.

Now I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say what happens or which way the romance went, but I did end up loving the book and I found the story captivating. I didn't want to put it down and am sad that it is over.

As with all the books in this series, I loved the characters and setting. The writing was fantastic; it held my interest and the story wasn't hard to follow. There were also some scenes that had me on the edge of my seat because I didn't know what was going to happen next and I didn't want it to be anything bad.

All in all, I recommend On Love's Gentle Shore. I don't think you need to read the previous books in order to enjoy this one, but since they were so good I think you might want to. ;)
