What a great addition to the Three Sisters Island series! I really liked book one of the series and I enjoyed book two even more. I think that readers could probably jump in and enjoy this story even if they haven’t read book one, but they would miss out on this family’s initial decision to become residents of the island, as well as the very important backstory for Cam, Seth, and Cooper.
Just as in book one, On a Coastal Breeze gives the reader the account of the story from the perspective of each of the three sisters and also of their father, Paul. The reader does not get to see into the mind of the love interests in these particular books. And while I would have loved to hear Rick O’Shea’s thoughts and feelings in this story, I still enjoyed the building up of the plot through all of the other characters.
I liked catching up with Cam, Maddie, and Blaine. Each of them had their own situations building in this story and all three were interesting. However, I loved learning more about Maddie and all of the fear she struggled with throughout her life. Getting to see her interacting in both good and bad ways with Rick as they grew up made her reaction to him showing up on the island very understandable. Great story!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Suzanne Woods Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Suzanne graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, and was a free-lancer writer for magazines while her children were growing up. A former contributing editor to Christian Parenting Today, Suzanne’s work has appeared in many magazines, including Today’s Christian Woman, Worldwide Challenge, and Marriage Partnership.
Her first novel, Copper Star, a World War II love story, was published by a small press (Vintage Inspirations) and received three literary awards. It opened the door to a literary agent, Joyce Hart. The agent knew of Suzanne’s connection to the Plain People—her grandfather was raised Plain—and introduced her to an editor at Revell, a division of Baker Books. Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World was the result of that first conversation. It was an 2010 ECPA Book of the Year finalist…and it is the book Suzanne wants to be buried with.
And that was over thirty books and one million sold copies ago! So it seems things are working out pretty well.
