I so enjoyed this refreshing book. More than your average romance, It might seem stereotypical that the successful attractive guy is attracted to the shy, fearful but talented island girl but I warmed to the characters of Quinn and Emmi and resented having to put the book down ! The writing is expressive and I am keen to read more of the series. A great discovery!

California Man, Quinn Ramsey comes to Salt Island for peace and quiet to make a life altering decision in peace and quiet. Instead he meets a beautiful silver-eyed shy beauty that rocks his world and a special young man, James that points him in a new direction. The love story is sweet, the emotional ups and downs between this couple of opposites keeps the readers interest as high as the mountain peaks of the Coastal Range of the West Coast. The beauty of Salt Island and surrounding area describes a paradise of the Pacific Northwest Coast. A happy ever after ending with a hit of how the next couple in the trilogy will meet and start a relationship makes this, another great story by Ms. Sheedy.

I purchased this manuscript at Amazon/US.

I loved Quinn and I loved Emmi's friends. The downside of Emmi was how often she was telling Quinn how HE felt. I was relieved that very early on in the story he sternly told her to stop telling him how he felt because it was so annoying. He's such a great guy, though, being so patient with her because of her longstanding fear of relationships. Emmi's friend, Lynn I believe, was my kind of woman. VERY to the point. She, like all of Emmi's friends, were fed up with her skittishness when clearly Quinn was good for her, and spared nothing when telling her she was a moron for pushing him away (sorry, a bit of a spoiler there, but it's nothing new from these romance stories). As typical, we get our happily ever after. I would have given this 5 stars but I found Emmi just a tad annoying and I don't like annoying lead characters. I don't mind troubled main characters, but not annoying.

Really enjoyed this sweet love story.

Quinn Ramsay escapes to quiet Salt Spring Island to make a big decision about his business. He is fully of vitality and verve.

Emily Welland is the shy bookstore owner on the island. She has been unlucky in love, which has affected her dealings with people – especially men. She is prone to panicking and crippling shyness. Underneath her shyness, though, lies an exceptional woman, who is brainy and creative, caring and fun to be with. The moment she sees Quinn, she is almost starstruck. He makes her feel things that she’s never felt before.

Quinn is captivated by her “rain coloured” eyes and is intrigued by this shy woman and the reasons behind her shyness. He is unwillingly drawn to her. He isn’t looking for love but it finds him at an almost inconvenient time in his life. He is contemplating his future and hadn’t allowed for the possibility of someone to share it with.

I really enjoyed how Quinn pushed Emily past her comfort zone, with firm care and tenderness. It was great to see Emily willing to take a chance on Quinn, even if it was for a limited time, until he returned to his ‘real’ life.

Sweet love story and really enjoyable, with a lovely conclusion that sets it up for the next couple in the series.

An excellent book and excellent story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, didn't want to put it down and didn't want it to end. The two main characters, Quinn and Emily were strong even though Emily's charater was extremely shy. I will read more by this author and this book again!

What a wonderful love story, filled with emotional expectations. Quinn being the independent free man who didn't want to be tied down until he met the woman he couldn't forget. Emily the shy insecure young woman who's emotions had been crushed found it hard to trust men until Quinn began to teach her with his patience. I loved this romantic story.

Well written novel. I personally found the attraction between the 2 main characters not very believable, and in parts nauseatingly sweet. However, if you love straightforward love story with a happy ending this book definitely fits the bill.
