Gillian Marlboro is rushed off her feet trying to organize her sister’s upcoming wedding. Being a Maid of Honor is hard on the spirit. Add into the mix some scantily clad bridesmaids and some horny groomsmen and you have a recipe for disaster.
When the groom to be organizes a cruise a week before the wedding, Gillian is glad of the respite and the attentions of best man, handsome James Foster. That is until their boat is run aground on a deserted exotic island. Can love flourish between Gillian and James, and beat the elements?
Gillian’s Island is a fun, frolic that you can read in an afternoon. This is the first novella I have read from Sapphire Blue Publishing and I really enjoyed it. It was a very sweet read. The two main characters, Gillian and James, were perfect for each other in their ‘geekiness’. The story itself is very atmospheric – who wouldn’t want to be stranded on an exotic island with a handsome and practical hunk?
Although I found Gillian’s Island a fun read, there are some issues which affect the overall review mark — the characters were a bit ‘Mary Sue’ at times with no real depth to them. These are not characters that will stay in my mind long after I’ve finished the book.
However, Gillian’s Island is a quick, light hearted, frolicking read to perk up the spirits on a cold afternoon. Personally, it’s not a book I will be keeping on my shelf though.
