  • Second chance love with a lot of misunderstanding.

    Stella Quinn, ‘Tropic Storm’. The Island Escape Series, book 1. As a Hidden Gems ARC reader I received a free copy and promised an honest review. Here it is. Rating: 3,5 (of 5 stars). Main characters: - Charlotte Jones. She lives in London and is a successful journalist and blogger working for Bella Magazine. - Jack Diamond. CEO of the Jewel Resort Group a chain of vacation resorts all over the world, owned by his family. Charlotte and Jack met for the first time nine years ago in London. And had a stormy love affair. She was very young (19) and idealistic and admired Jack, then a talented, ambitious guitar player. She had broken with her parents, who had a nasty divorce due to thinking that much money was the most important thing in life. So she was devastated that Jack suddenly left London when his father, owner of a big vacation resorts chain, asked him to return to his Hawaï home to help him save the family company. She thought that Jack was as materialistic as her her parents and they had a big fight when he left. Jack’s dad died shortly after his return and for years he was very busy as the CEO of the growing family company. Charlotte stayed in London to become a famous journalist and blogger. But both couldn’t forget their love. The author, Stalla Quinn, starts the novel when Charlotte has a break down, being the victim of a hooligan riot in England. She needs a vacation. She chooses Hawaï. And - very accidentally (??!) - meets Jack at the departure gate of her flight, is placed in the seat next to him in the plane and turns out to have booked in Jack’s family resort. Then the author describes how Jack and Charlotte first maintain their misunderstanding about the reasons for their former break-up, but gradually start to understand that a lot of their mistrust was due to youth and prejudices. Fortunately at the end - after a lot of complications - they find their HEA. Most of those complications could have been avoided if the main characters earlier had told what they really thought, but the author created a lot of events to prevent that. For me it made the story not always very credible. But all in all, the book was for this reader an easy to read page turner with interesting characters and a plot in an exotic, enjoyable environment.

    Thanks for your feedback!
