About the book:
Rose Island Lighthouse, Rhode Island June 1880 Will she betray his trust to stay on the island she loves? Abbie Watson is content to spend her days clamming, crabbing, and tending Rose Island Lighthouse. Her grandpa is the head light keeper, but his senility may lead to their eviction. Since leaving the island would kill her beloved Gramps, Abbie will do anything to keep him in the one place he knows and loves. Wealthy Nathaniel Winthrop III’s wild living has gained him a reputation as the ‘bad boy’ among the elite social circles of Newport. After a blow to the head in a yachting accident washes him up on Rose Island, Nathaniel has no memories of his past. Abbie tends the wounded stranger in her home only to realize he assumes they’re married. Although she knows she needs to correct Nathaniel’s mistake, his presence calms Gramps and provides a way to prevent eviction from the lighthouse. The longer the charade continues, the harder it gets for Abbie to tell Nathaniel the truth, more so as she begins to fall in love. Everyone she’s ever loved has abandoned her. Will Nathaniel leave her too, once he discovers he’s not really her husband?
I remember meeting Nathaniel in book 4. I was glad to get to know him a bit better in this book. I loved the fact that while he did have amnesia, he really did want to change from what he knew of himself. I loved the way that he treated Abbie. I loved how Abbie kept struggling to keep her grandfather in the home that he loved.
This book was a wonderful conclusion to the series. It has Hedlund's usual style of romance blended with a touch of suspense. While the second book in the series remains my favorite, I happily devoured this book.
I received the Kindle version of this book from the author to help influence the book. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
