This is the fourth installment in Denise Hunter's Nantucket Love Story series. Although I did not read any of the other books in the series, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I received a complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson publishers (through Booksneeze) in exchange for a candid, honest review.
Meridith Ward has created a life of security for herself including a good job and a fiance. Abandoned by her father at a young age, she was raised by her mom who battled bi-polar disorder. One phone call changes her life and all her plans. She learns that her father and his wife have died, and she has gained full custody of their three children. Meridith goes to Nantucket to care for the siblings she has never met and hopes the children's uncle will take over custody once he learns of the situation. Much to her dismay, her well intentioned plans are once again foiled as she unknowingly falls in love with the kids and their uncle.
This is a delightful read for the summer. The plot, though not complicated, moves along quickly and keeps the reader engaged.
