Island in the Sun by Janice Horton #Review #Contemporary #BlogTour

Island in the Sun

When successful jewellery designer Isla Ashton unexpectedly inherits her eccentric Aunt Kate’s Caribbean island, she is obligated to return to the place she associates with heartache and regret. To where she grew up and fell in love with her childhood friend, Leo Fernandez. Fully intent on selling the island and finally putting the past behind her, Isla is soon compelled to put together the pieces of what really happened on a fateful night ten-years before. She begins to believe that in going to prison, Leo hadn’t only been shielding her from the same fate. She also starts to suspect that her late Aunt hadn’t been entirely honest in sending her away under the guise of recriminations. Who had they both been protecting and why?

My Review

This is a contemporary second chance romance packed with surprises and revelations.

Growing up on this Caribbean island after the death of her parents, Isla Ashton had a somewhat idyllic time there until ten years ago, when she was sixteen. That’s when her Aunt Kate had sent her away and Isla’s boyfriend, Leo, had been arrested and sent to prison. However, his reasons and just what really happened, Isla can’t remember. Now the death of her aunt causes Isla to return to Pearl Island and for fate to give her a second chance – or is it already too late?

This is a heartwarming story with great characters, surprising secrets, mistaken assumptions, dramatic revelations and even hurricanes! It is an intriguing story where initial plans have to be constantly reevaluated as secrets are revealed. It will keep you turning the pages to discover how everything works out in the end. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a delightful, contemporary, second chance romance.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
