mini-ring back from kelsey10 (Kim); very nice short stories, all centering around the Rainbow Lodge on San Juan Islands in Washington State ( )

I picked up this book to discover new authors. Can't say I was impressed. I enjoyed Jill Barnett's story best of the three. Having read another book by Macomber I will probably try her books again, although this story was unrealistic. Might try another Barnett, but don't think I'll be looking for a Wiggs novel. All in all a disappointing read. ( )

Book description
Contains:
Old Things by Jill Barnett;
Private Paradise by Debbie Macomber;
Island Time by Susan Wiggs
It's nothing special on the surface, merely a rambling old Victorian summerhouse on a secluded island, where the sky is blue and the water is clear. Yet after a month at the Rainshadow Lodge, people begin to change—and fall in love. How else can you account for what happens to the most mismatched, unlikely couples?

There's Beth, who's stuck sharing the lodge with a complete stranger—and a difficult one at that. And Mitch, a workaholic on a deadline who has to depend on free-spirited Rosie, who functions on "island time." Not to mention Catherine, who's falling in love with Michael, the lodge's handyman—for the second time!
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0778327132, Mass Market Paperback)

The San Juan Islands in Washington State come alive in That Summer Place, an anthology set on fictional Spruce Island. In "Old Things" by Jill Barnett, California divorceé Catherine Winslow seeks to recreate the magic of her childhood with her two daughters on the island where her family spent many happy summers. She has no idea that she is about to revive a teenage romance as well.

In Debbie Macomber's "Private Paradise," widow Beth Graham is invited to stay on an island with friends. But when a last-minute accident keeps her friends from the island, Beth and her son end up sharing quarters with a handsome single father, John Livingstone, and his teenage daughter. Close quarters cause tempers to flare, but Beth and John just may manage to find love before the trip is over.

"Island Time" by Susan Wiggs finds workaholic Mitch Rutherford and Dr. Rosalinda Galvez busily conducting an environmental impact study of the island, although Mitch wonders if he will ever get anything done with the beautiful doctor around.

Barnett's trademark humor, Macomber's poignancy, and Wiggs's expert storytelling all combine to create the perfect summer beach book. --Maudeen Wachsmith
