On a Coastal Breeze ~ Suzanne Woods Fisher

This is book 2 of the Three Island Sisters series.  This is the second season on the island after a long winter and the sisters are continuing with their lives and the way of living on the island.  We continue with Maddie settled into counseling at her new office in the basement of the church, Cam is still working on setting a wedding date along with getting grants for electricity to the island and Blaine is dealing with her culinary school and next step of a cooking career.  In this book we are introduced to the new handsome pastor that comes to the island, Rick.  He and Maddie have a history and can they both forgive each other for the past?  What is up with Cam not able to set the date?  Will Blaine stay on the island or make a difficult choice to leave?

I love this series, one of my favorites in a long time.  When you read this book you get wrapped up in the characters and it moves along very well.  Just when you think you can figure it all out, it doesn't happen that way..... It is one of those books that you can't put down and hate to have it end.  When I started reading, I ended up reading it in bed because I had to see how it all worked out, my husband asked "are you going to read all night?"  I said "almost done, I only have a few more pages"  he replied "the book will be there in the morning" I reply "I know, but I need to know......"  that is how much this book wraps you in.   It is book 2 but can be read as a stand alone, even though you will want to read book 1 to get a little background and it will give you more background of the family and how they ended up on the island.... Can't wait for book 3!!

About the Book
 Book: On A Coastal Breeze Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher Genre: Amish Romance Release Date: May 5, 2020 For Madison Grayson, life is good. Newly licensed as a marriage and family therapist, she can’t wait to start her practice. Despite the unfortunate shortage of eligible bachelors on the island–they’re all too young, too old, or too weird–Maddie feels like she’s finally found her sweet spot. Not even one panic attack in the last year. Not one. And then Ricky O’Shea drops in. Literally. Floating down from the pure blue sky, the one man in the world she hoped never to see again–the one who’d been her archnemesis from kindergarten through her senior dance–parachutes into town, landing on Boon Dock, canopy draping behind him like a superhero. Ricky O’Shea. Now Pastor Rick, the new minister on Three Sisters Island. Time to panic. With wit and a bit of whimsy, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Three Sisters Island where family, forgiveness, and a second chance at love await.

Dear Reader, The minute you step off the ferry and onto Three Sister Island, magic begins. Crisp ocean air acts like an elixir. Stress starts to evaporate, like a wisp of steam from a cup of hot tea. Happiness moves in, and you’ll feel more cheerful, more positive about the future. And then there’s time! Somehow, there seems to be plenty of it. Little things will catch your notice—finding seashells on the beach, watching waves crash against the rocks, gazing at the star-studded night sky. Life just starts to slow down…and you wonder if you really want to ever leave Three Sisters Island. Nor do you have to! That’s the beauty of books—they are the perfect escape. Always available, just waiting to be picked up. Always ready to transport you to a fresh and new state of mind. On a Coastal Breeze is that kind of a read. The Grayson Family saga continues as they move to Three Sisters Island off the coast of Maine for a fresh start. Maddie Grayson takes center stage in this story. Life is finally coming together for Maddie. On the very day she opens her counseling practice, she spots a billowing skydiver. Parachuting in is Ricky O’ Shea—the one person on earth Maddie hoped she’d never see again. But Rick’s the new pastor for the island’s only church and he’s not about to leave. That’s when sparks start to fly. Join me for a getaway by the sea that will leave you in a happy, relaxed, vacation-y state of mind…without leaving your home. Once you board the Never Late Ferry, even in your imagination, the island will take it from there. Warmly, Suzanne
