"Sandpiper Island" by Donna Kauffman

Book Description....

Ford Maddox was running from his past when he came back to Blueberry Cove, Maine, where he'd tasted both heartache and comfort. With feisty Delia O'Reilly there to cheer him on, he couldn't have picked a better place to start over—even if he's determined to do it alone in his island tree house, working to save endangered seabirds . . . and himself.

But when he finds Delia fighting to hold on to her local diner, and all that's best about their little seaside town, Ford has to lend a hand. Suddenly two fiercely independent people are building something sweeter than they ever imagined . . . together.

DIY is so much better with two...

Includes an easy do-it-yourself restoration project!

What I liked about this novel....

This novel may have started out somewhat slow but it does pick up here in Blueberry Clove where you will not want to put it down until the end. Ford and Delia were in their 40's and I liked the couples being of a older bunch of folks for this romantic read setting in the small town of Maine called Sandpiper Island.

Ford had met earlier while in the military and he had the 'unenviable task of bringing back Delia's brother after he was killed in service to his country. It was then when after one night of passion they had shared then Ford returns to the military service. After much time as passed Ford (ex -Military) is now working for a conservation projected in Sandpiper Island which really brought out to this island regarding the study of the species of birds in this contemporary romance read. All of this was brought out so well by this author in the read and especially with Ford being so 'stoic and self contained' living in a 'tree house' on this island. Would Ford and Delia be able to get passed what had happened in the past that it was only one night when they were just helping each other during such a trying time in their lives? Will Ford live his hibernation on this island to help his sister and Delia's diner from this developed who was after Delia's land even though she didn't want his help? This storyline will keep you reading as this author gives us such well developed, defined, colorful and believable characters as many twist and turns come forth. I loved how these two main characters were finally able to 'rediscover things about themselves while experiencing the magic that was in Sandpiper Island.'

"Sandpiper Island" was definitely one of those 'Bachelors of Blueberry Cove' series that I wasn't able to put down due to the fact I wanted to find out what had happened and I am so glad I did. In the end one of my favorite parts was the 'Atlantic Puffin' rescue scene which proved to be quite a interesting read giving the reader a real breathtaking scenes along with some wonderful people with some realistic issues and yes, even struggles lived with from day to day. It was very interesting seeing Ford and Delia become friends again, then lovers and in the end true love was showed...wow what a read! After the novel this author has put at her ...how to "Create Your Own Indoor Miniature Water Garden" that I found most fascinating! ( )
