Overview

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.
While Gansett After Dark could be read as a standalone story, readers will enjoy it more if they have read the rest of the Gansett Island Series, particularly book 6, Season for Love.

    Oh Marie - you've captured my heart again with this book. Seeing Owen and Laura go through so much to get where they wanted to be had me laughing, crying and clapping my hands when it all worked out for them. I expected Big Mac and Linda to do exactly what they did when the daughter he never new he had came into their lives, and their kids are all so loving and caring I couldn't see it being any other way. Janey will come around. I was Oh So Happy to see Francine and Ned get their Happy Ever After - Mac has a heart of gold for sure!! The other stories, engagement and weddings entwined in the book with all the people that I've grown to love as "my own family and friends" is always a pleasure to read! A sure winner with me.

    Bliss. Pure bliss meets a roller coaster ending back at pure bliss. Somehow, some way Marie Force draws her readers in to a point where we love these characters more and more with each page. She makes us love them to the point that we , as readers, become totally investested in the Gansett Island life. To say anything about the events in this book would amount to spoiling this delicious read.

    My only complaint is.... these books end too soon! I love taking trips to Gansett Island where family, friends and love are all important. Marie's books are humorous and sexy but yet deal with real life issues. I have read all the books in the series and each one gives us a glimpse into life in this special place. This book is no exception. I recommend it without any hesitation.

    I LOVED every book that has come out of this series and I can’t wait for more to come.  I love not only the new romances that come out of every book but the ones that keep going.  Mac and Maddie they still make me laugh.  I must say though that Owen’s story had me though.  He came to the island because of his best friend Evan and their music but when he fell in love with Laura and her soon to be child and then as their love grows and she has Holden and he loves him as his own.  When they get the happy news that they are expecting twin’s he had me all over again.  Owen has a bit of a rough patch in this book because of his father’s court date.  He doesn’t want Laura to go with and hear about everything he had to go through with a father that abusive. Laura is not only there for Owen during his time of need but there are a few other shockers throughout the stories Couple surprise marriages, wedding dates set, engagements… You don’t want to miss out; this is a story that will keep you wanting more.  And let me tell you I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK TO COME!!!

    This series never disappoints!

    Marie Force has done it yet again making me want to hop a ferry for Gansett Island. I love all the characters and how their stories intertwine so well. Everytime I think I have figured out who my favorite coyple is, something else happens that makes me reconsider. I cannot wait for more!
