Review: On Love's Gentle Shore by:Liz Johnson

 On Love's Gentle Shore (Prince Edward Island Dreams #3)
About the Book:
Fifteen years after she left Prince Edward Island, Natalie O'Ryan had no plans to return. But when her fiancé, music producer Russell Jacobs, books their wedding in her hometown and schedules a summer at Rose's Red Door Inn, she sets out to put the finishing touches on the perfect wedding. But she can't possibly prepare for a run-in with Justin Kane--the best friend she left behind all those years ago after promising to stay.

Justin's never forgotten Natalie or the music career he always dreamed of pursuing. He'd been prepared to follow her off the island until his dad died and he was left 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 discover the groundwork for forgiveness--and that there may be more than an old friendship between them.


My Review:
 Natalie had never plan to return to her old stomping grounds but apparently her fiance Russell has different plans. Little did he know what that decision may cost him in the end. Natalie was almost afraid to set foot back home much less run into Justin, a very good friend that she basically abandoned. But return she did and seeing Justin. Running in to him was inevitable especially since she had to go o him a grovel because she needed to make use of his barn because she needed it for her wedding.

 This story alone is why you never get back involved with people from your past especially if you haven't talked to them in awhile. Things like this can never turn out well, I felt sorry for Russell during this whole story because his fiance is getting closer and closer to Justin but not in a good way.

 The background story about Natalie's childhood was a touching one that would leave you heartbroken. But soon things start looking up for her when she met Russell but I think going back to her hometown was a mistake in the first place.

 The story was a good one overall. I felt really sorry for her fiance and I think getting involved with Justin was a mistake. Great summer read!
