Contemporary Romance/Family Sagas
A year after his 31-year marriage imploded, Dr. Kevin McCarthy is enjoying life on Gansett Island. He’s opened a small practice, goes fishing with his older brothers any time he wants and has his sons, nieces and nephews close by. Best of all is his all-consuming relationship with sexy bartender, Chelsea Rose. What started as a one-night stand a year ago, has turned into something much more significant for Kevin and for Chelsea. The sixteen-year age difference between them has never mattered, until they realize they may have differing plans for the future. Will they be able to reconcile their divergent paths or will their hearts be broken when they go their separate ways? Find out in Gansett Island Episode 2: Kevin & Chelsea where you’ll also hear about Big Mac’s latest business venture and have a visit with the Gansett Island characters you’ve come to love!
“Do you give the woman you love what she wants, potentially at the expense of your own happiness, or do you tell her it’s not what you want and lose her in the process?”
There is nothing better for me than catching up with the McCarthy family and friends on Gansett Island. When I read a Gansett Island book, I know I will be taken to my happy place. I know I’m going to be swept away reading a truly enjoyable romance that is believable and deals with real issues. There’s drama, romance, sexiness, comedy, and the close-knit bond that is Gansett Island. Episode 2 brings an internal debate for Dr. Kevin McCarthy and his much younger girlfriend while also keeping us current on the many family members and friends. There’s a new business venture, more babies, a new romance budding (setting up for book 19), and the hysterics that is the life of the McCarthy’s. With so many characters you think it would be too much, but Marie has the perfect flow and I’m always amazed at how much she packs in without sacrificing the main story. A well written romance and a very enjoyable read.
Note: this is a continuing series and I believe you will benefit more from reading in order.

About the Gansett Island Episodes…
From Marie: My fictional island has become such a huge part of my life—and yours—over these last six years, and I’ve created so many characters who speak to me between books and during the writing of new ones. I can’t possibly give them all a new story in every book, but I still have so much to say about them. With that in mind, I’ll be launching a new “Gansett Island Episodes” series in 2017, featuring shorter stories about past characters who readers love and want more of. Mixed in with these episodes will be at least one full-length book a year. So we’ll have plenty more from our favorite island, with new stories for past characters as well as all-new stories, too. I’m looking forward to this new adventure and hope you’ll take the ferry to Gansett for the new episodes!
