Publisher's Summary

They were complete strangers searching for the same thing - solitude. But thanks to a matchmaking friend, Deirdre Joyce and Neil Hersey found themselves stranded on an island off the coast of Maine. Forced to coexist, they discovered there was no escaping the inevitable - irresistible attraction.The idea of living alone again was unimaginable, and so a marriage of "convenience" seemed like the perfect solution - he would run her family's company, and she would pursue her career. But could their feelings survive the forces of the outside world?

Most Helpful

A light-hearted and enjoyable romance.

This was a sweet, funny, light romance tale of 2 burnt-up confused people being set-up by a friend who arranged for them both to 'rest' at a deserted island hideaway but neither one knew the other will be there and the fun and frolics begin.

If you're into light entertaining listens then you can't go wrong with this one.

Not my favourite

What disappointed you about The Real Thing?

I found the characters annoying, the dialogue simplistic and the story ridiculous. I can tolerate and even enjoy a ridiculous story if the writing is clever but I found this piece to be a disappointing experience.
