Overview

When Liam Marshall’s best friend, Alex, loses his fight with colon cancer, he leaves Liam one final request: buy a ticket to Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, and scatter Alex’s ashes off the pier. Liam is tired, worn out, and in desperate need of a vacation, but instead of sun, sea, sand, and hot cabana boys, he gets a rickety old train, revolting kids, and no Ewan MacGregor.

Liam would have done anything for his friend, but fulfilling Alex’s final wish means letting go off the only family Liam had left. Lost, he freezes on the pier… until Sam Owens comes to his rescue.

Sam’s family has vacationed on the Isle of Wight every year for as long as he can remember, but he’s never met anyone like Liam. Determined to make Liam’s vacation one to remember, Sam looks after him—in and out of the bedroom. He even introduces Liam to his entire family. But as Sam helps Liam let go, he’s forced to admit that he wants Liam to hang on—not to his old life, but to Sam and what they have together.

Absolutely Loved it! Liam and Sam are so cool together. Liam had a hard job to do and with the help and support of an absolute stranger ......lovely. Really got a kick out of Sams family. Most definitely will read the rest of the series

Good story. Too easy and not enough conflict and drama. Could have been better but still good.

This is a character-driven novel, with fabulous main characters and secondary characters who could carry a story alone if need be. Sam’s grandmother Rose is such a character. Sam comes from a loving, supportive family, unlike Liam, and they enfold Liam and all his pain without question. If you are looking for well-written fresh sincerity this is your book. It is a welcome story of love, friendship, family, and joy, and I felt privileged to read it. Sue Brown hits another one out of the park.
