Their dreams are within reach. But first they’ll have to put the past away.
A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!
Owen Lawry is days away from leaving Gansett Island to attend the trial of his father, who is charged with assaulting his mother almost a year ago. He has spent his entire adult life trying to outrun his violent past, but the upcoming showdown with the father he hasn't seen in more than a decade has him spending far more time in the past than in the present. His biggest challenge is convincing his pregnant fiancée, Laura McCarthy, to sit out the trip. The last thing he wants is to expose the woman he loves to the pain of his past.
Laura is determined to stand by Owen's side throughout the trial and into the life they have planned together. The trial and her final divorce papers are the only things standing between them and the wedding they have looked forward to all year. Can she convince Owen to let her in and allow her to help him through this difficult time? And what will become of the man she loves if his father walks free?
As Owen and Laura prepare for the emotional battle with his father, his mother, Sarah, finally comes clean about her violent marriage with Charlie Grandchamp, the man who has been her friend and companion for months now. How will Charlie react to hearing Sarah's secrets, and will their relationship move forward now that he finally knows the truth about why she can't bear to let him touch her?
Catch up with all your favorite Gansett Island characters from the past ten and a half books and meet several new characters, including some McCarthy cousins on the island for Laura and Owen's wedding, who will be featured in future books.

Gansett After Dark
I have read all of the Marie Force books. Unfortunately this one I found quite boring. I kept flipping the pages forward and skipping a lot of the dialogue. I already pre-ordered the next one, book 11, and only hope it can keep my attention. So sorry but this one was not one of your best, in my opinion.
Just as fabulous as all the others. I'm caught up on this family and can't wait to see where Marie takes us next.
Awesome.....as I knew it would be
Another great book of Marie Force. If you have read all the other Gansett Island stories, you'll need to read this one. A few new people introduced, all the past people were involved. I love how we get to continue reading of all of our favorites. Thank you for another great read. Truly enjoy your books.
