Publisher's Summary

When it comes to love, anything can happen on Dare Island - especially in this latest novel from New York Times best-selling author Virginia Kantra.
After escaping a disastrous marriage, bakery owner Jane Clark has convinced herself that she has everything she needs - her precious son, a thriving business, and a roof over her head. But the arrival of a handsome stranger on the island shows her exactly what she's been missing.
The only home Gabe Murphy ever had was the Marine Corps. He's working hard to rebuild his life. It will take a special place, and a special woman, to make him want to stay. Now Gabe is determined to prove that he's worthy of Jane's trust - and her love. But when her past reappears, that trust will be tested, and Jane and Gabe will have to fight hard to hold on to their love and make their dreams a reality.

Wimpy lead.

This girl was way to wishy washy. Thorough most of the book she was indecisive and whinny. And her grouchy bully of a father did not help matters. I did not like or enjoy either of them.

Get Lucky with Gabe

Gabe was a pleasant surprise, a homeless veteran who was as gentle as he was strong. Gabe came to Dare Island to reconnect with Luke Fletcher, an old Marine buddy, and promptly fell for single mother Jane. Gabe showed his true nature when he fed a stray dog when he didn't have enough to eat himself.

While I was sympathetic to Jane's situation, an abusive ex-husband and grumpy father who never let her forget that she married a jerk, I thought Jane was a bit of a martyr. Since she was smart enough to start her own business, she should have realized that she needed therapy to resolve her abandonment issues and not waited 7 years to live again.

This 5th book in the Dare Island series was mildly entertaining, with updates on the Fletcher family and local residents. I just don't care for the damsel in distress type of heroine, but the hunky guy, cute kid and rescued dog Lucky almost made up for it.
