The Island House

The Island House by Elana Johnson Book Summary

Charlotte Madsen's whole world came crashing down six months ago with the words, "I met someone else."

Thirty-seven, recently divorced, and childless. That's Charlotte when she disembarks from the plane in Getaway Bay. She wants to get away, that's for sure. She thought the best way to do that was to buy a run-down house overlooking the bay, knowing she'll need all her fixer-upper skills to get it in shape. Which is just fine. She's hoping as she overhauls the house, she'll get a life makeover too.

She was not expecting a tall, handsome man to be under the kitchen sink when she arrives at the supposedly abandoned house. She wasn't expecting to get drenched when the non-plumber twists something the wrong way. And she certainly wasn't expecting her heart to be well enough to feel anything for anyone.

But former Air Force pilot, Dawson Dane, has a charming devil-may-care personality, and Charlotte could use some carefree laughter in her life. But everything with Dawson isn't sunshine and unicorns. He's estranged from his family, though he does speak to one of his brothers. And he's never committed to anything except his career, even choosing flying over an engagement years ago.

Can Charlotte navigate the healing process as she renovates the island house? Can Dawson finally make a commitment to a woman? Or will he and Charlotte decide a relationship is just too hard?

It’s so refreshing to read a clean romance without all the unnecessary sex scenes. The absence of profanity was a breath of fresh air. It was a sweet love story and one that I would recommend to anyone.

- Awesome book!5 star

Awesome book! Best combination of love, romance and the perfect location.

- Good3 star

I enjoyed the book. It was clean and sweet. I was disappointed that the author had Charlotte make a big fuss over her sister throughout the book and it was never truly addressed. Charlotte has all these pent up emotions about her sister- I.e. not wanting to call her sister back, or her sister being stiff towards Dawson. I was waiting for some further explanation but instead the author had me invested on the back story to then totally drop it. Other than that it was a nice and easy read.

I love romance novels and to see how no matter where you come from love could blossom. I can’t wait to start reading the next book in this series . If you like the unexpected, twisted and shocking surprise this is one. I couldn’t put it down was reading at work when I had free time.

I am a mystery/non-fiction reader, but truly enjoyed this book. It kept going when you thought it might end, and when you thought you knew what might happen it didn’t happen. A nice change of reading.
