Life has a way of changing your plans. Sometimes for the better…

Paul Martinez has been run ragged by the demands of managing the family’s landscaping business and his mother’s battle with dementia. It’s been so long since he had sex, he can’t remember the last time. The arrival of nurse Hope Russell brought some badly needed help to Paul and his brother Alex in managing their mother’s illness, but Hope’s presence has sparked a whole new problem for Paul—lusting after one of his employees, something his late father would never condone. 

Hope and her young son Ethan badly need this second chance on Gansett Island, and she’s determined to make her new job work for both of them. Kissing her boss, however, was not part of the plan. The more time she spends with Paul, the more she admires the way he cares for his mother and the attention he pays to her son. But when Paul finds out about her shameful past, will he still want her and Ethan in his life?

Come back to Gansett Island to find out what’s going on with all your favorite characters, including Mac and Maddie, Seamus and Carolina and the rest of the Gansett crew. Weeks before Alex and Jenny’s long-awaited wedding, Alex begins to worry that his bride is getting cold feet—or is something else going on? It’s September on Gansett where the days are cool, bright and sunny and the nights are hot and sexy! Approximately 90,000 words.

    I always love a trip back to Gansett Island! This book was like a trip back home. Paul and Hope's story was so sweet. The family aspect of dealing with dementia was so emotional. Such a terrible disease portrayed so well with the perfect loving sons. Hope was the perfect caregiver, never losing her patience. Hope and Paul were perfect together. Paul had been through so much and Hope became literally his hope for his future. I loved having the opportunity to catch up with other members of the island. The McCarthy's and the other residents of Gansett are some of my favorite characters! Thanks for the wonderful trip back Marie Force. It was great!

    I never want Marie's books to end. They are an endless source of pleasure for me. My favorite part is that she keeps it going, meaning most books end, but she just adds to a continuing story and I love that!
