Carolina Home by Virginia Kantra

This Dare Island series is going to be awesome if this first novel is any indication. For a fictional island it feels like coming home. I started reading this book and sighed and felt all the tension in my body just disappear, it was like finally I can relax, I’m home. The characters felt real, they belonged on the island, they were tough and weathered with innocence and sweetness still found in the closeness of small towns. Just when it starts to feel comfortable Kantra would ratchet up the tension just a notch to keep my attention before easing me back into island life. The troubles of the town are real, the problems of the people devastating but the strength and the endurance of these characters are unique to the the harshness of the land that molds them. Only on the outer banks buffeted by the wind and hurricanes, isolated by the rivers and the ocean could these hearty people pull together and be a community. Living on Dare Island is like no other place on earth. The Fletcher family is one of those who have put down roots on the island are beloved by the locals. Few main-landers find their place among the islanders but school teacher Allison Carter proves to herself and the stubborn Matt Fletcher that she belongs with or without him.
