Overview

With more than 1.5 million copies of the New York Times Bestselling McCarthys of Gansett Island Series sold since MAID FOR LOVE debuted in April 2011, this series has quickly become a fan favorite! See where it all began with MAID FOR LOVE! The story continues in....

HOPING FOR LOVE
All her life, Grace Ryan was the "fat girl." Taunted and teased and ignored by her peers, she tried every diet ever invented to no avail. Desperate to change her life as her twenties slipped away, she decided it was time for drastic measures and had lap-band surgery. More than a year later, she's lost 130 pounds and is venturing into the dating world for the first time. During a boat trip to Gansett Island with the new guy in her life, Grace refuses to have sex with him and finds herself abandoned without a dollar to her name at McCarthy's Gansett Island Marina.

At home for the summer awaiting the launch of his debut CD, music star-in-the-making Evan McCarthy is performing at the Tiki Bar when he notices Grace looking lost in a sea of happy people. Evan comes to her aid and quickly finds himself smitten. But the last thing Grace needs after all she's been through is a guy who "doesn't do relationships." Will Evan change his ways to win Grace's heart?

"Another solid entry into the McCarthy's of Gansett Island series. Marie Force continues to create characters that readers can identify with and make you want to visit fictional Gansett Island and its residents." --Night Owl Reviews

    Marie Force, a relatively new author, has given us a wonderful new sequel in her fabulous series about the McCarthy Family of Gansett Island. Each one is different, and focuses on a mixture of real life issues and a little fantasy, converging on all the emotions from Way out loud laughter to tears. I am one that does not like to read reviews that give the whole story away, so I will just say start with Book #1 and enjoy the lives of the McCarthy’s and their friends. Charlene Miller

    Like the rest of this series this is a five star effort... Grace

    Like the rest of this series this is a five star effort... Grace has been the proverbial "fat girl" all of her life ridiculed by everyone including her parents. After getting brave, having surgery, losing 130 pounds she moves to Gansett Island where she meets Evan McCarthy... The rest is history and a moving love story.. Don't miss this series... Marie Force is a FABULOUS author.

    Great read! Love this series!

    I love all the books in this series and can't wait to read more. I like the interconnectedness of all the characters on Gansett Island and the fact that each book includes updates of the characters from the other books. I want to move to this island since all the men seem to be expert lovers! LOL!

    All I wanted it to be...

    Sometimes in a series, you get the feeling that the author is thinking "why did I ever start this and how do I end it?" Not so with Marie Force! These characters are alive and vested and growing with each book. Makes it hard to wait for the next installment. I love that each book focuses on one couple but with references and interactions with everyone who was the lead in a previous book ala Piers Anthony and the Incarnations.

    I am still loving Gansett Island Series!  I especially love that

    I am still loving Gansett Island Series!  I especially love that we get to keep up with all the characters that too me is the best.

    During a trip to Gansett Grace Ryan seems to find herself in an odd pairing. After refusing to have sex with her guy she finds herself on the island with no money or anything because he took off in the boat which had her belongings on them! She goes inside the marina &amp; find two men singing! Owen &amp; Evan! Even sees her crying &amp; helps her out sometime later she revisits the marina to repay him &amp; that is when their love begins! Its an amazing story to say the least ..
