Image of Carolina Girl (A Dare Island Novel)

Returning to Dare Island is always a pleasure. There is an intimate feel to the goings-on of the island, and the close-knit families who reside there really make readers feel invested in the story and the characters. Kantra’s latest is realistic, relatable and heartwarming enough to provide the reader with a happy sigh when the final page is turned. Add to that the slow-burn sexual tension between Meg and Sam, and this series second really keeps things interesting.

As Meg comes back to her family home to face the people and place she tried so hard to leave behind, things are complicated by the immediate arrival of her teenage crush. After losing her high-powered job in the big city and her long-term boyfriend, Meg is reevaluating her life and remembering what really matters. Unfortunately, she can’t escape her past and the one night of passion she shared with her brother’s best friend, Sam Grady. He’s no longer the boy she knew so many years ago. Charming and as handsome as ever, Meg is tempted to open her bruised heart to him, but the last thing she wants is to stay on Dare Island. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jun., 320 pp., $7.99)
