When Natalie O’Ryan returns to Prince Edward Island to plan her wedding, she runs into her childhood best friend—and discovers that the love she’s been looking for is right where she left it. The third and final installment in Johnson's Prince Edward Island Dreams series.
On Love’s Gentle Shore is the third installment of the Prince Edward Island Dreams series and I enjoyed going back to the island for a visit. This time we have a very reluctant Natalie O’Ryan coming back home, a place she never wanted to see again or the people that lived there. Her fiancé, Russell, wants to have their wedding there and there is so much that Natalie is not telling him.
But the one person she really wants to avoid is her childhood best friend Justin Kane; when she left she left things much unfinished with him. When they meet up again, sparks fly and the anger and animosity they feel towards each other just may be the feelings and the love they have had seething deep inside for 15 years.
And Natalie, poor, sweet girl that she was needs to come to terms with her terrible childhood and the townspeople who made her and her family the subject of gossip. Did anyone ever really love her when she was just a little girl? This is something that Natalie will need to discover as she goes back home to marry a man that may not even know the real her.
Poignant and emotionally stirring, a story of wanting to be loved and known for the real you yet terrified of the possible rejection because you just might not be enough. Getting to see and visit with previous characters, this final edition rounds out the series nicely.
