"This is Bella Andre at her finest! I love Elderflower Island, the bookshop, and Mari and Owen!" ~ 5 stars

All Mari Everett’s life, she’s had two secret dreams: To own a bookstore, and to reunite with her long lost father. But when he passes away unexpectedly and she inherits his home and business, the only way she can learn about his life—especially why he abandoned her when she was three and never came back—is by leaving California to take over his bookstore in London. 

Owen Sullivan lives and works on Elderflower Island, a close knit community in London where it’s impossible to keep a secret. It turns out, however, that Charlie Forsythe kept his daughter a secret from everyone for nearly thirty years. When Mari comes to London, Owen immediately falls for her. He’s never met a woman so intelligent, determined and honest. Not to mention so beautiful that she takes his breath away. 

Soon, everyone on the island—including Owen’s four siblings, parents and grandmother—is pitching in to help give the bookstore a fresh start. But as insatiable passion develops into love, will Mari and Owen be able to grab hold of their fresh start? Or will their pasts continue to cast a dark shadow over their chance at a brilliant future together in London?

I love Mari's story. As heartbreaking as her situation concerning her father is, the forgiveness and love that she finds in his bookshop is priceless and heals some old wounds. Of course, having Owen Sullivan by her side isn't too shabby either. The London Sullivans are on par with their cousins in the US and they don't disappoint in their charm and loyalty!

This is a very sweet and delicate story well beyond just the romance between Mari and Owen. It's a love story about family, being brave to take risks and living your dream. A must read for all book lovers!

Ah! More Sullivans to Love!

I loved this introductory book to the London Sullivans! It did not disappoint.
Owen is the oldest of the five London Sullivans and totally devoted to his family, even managing his grandmother’s literary career.when he sees Mari for the first time, he knows down to his toes, she’s the one he’s Tb been waiting for.
Mari comes to the island looking for answers to all of the questions she’s had about her estranged father. He left when she was three and she never heard from him again until his passing. Owen and his family have quite a few answers for her as they were good friends with him, but Mari finds quite a few answers in her father’s book shop. In fact, she might have found quite a lot more there.
