Beth has always set her own hopes and dreams aside to please others. When Lucas, her fiancé decides it's time she meets the parents, she braves the ferry to Anchor Island despite a paralysing fear of water stemming from a childhood boating accident. Then on the first day of their holiday, Lucas is called back to work leaving her in the care of his parents and brother, Joe. From the very first, there is a spark between Joe and Beth and as Beth settles into life on the island their attraction only increases. But both would rather give up true love than betray Lucas. Meant to Be is great. It's very much in the same vein as Jill Shalvis and Robyn Carr...but it's Jill Shalvis and Robyn Carr at their absolute best! Anchor Island is populated with great characters and I can hardly wait to get their stories. One of the best CRs I've read in the last 12 months.
