    Excellent with an A level

    i've never read the book from this author, by i'm glad I did ask for her arc. it is a great book in my opinion. I love the heroine and the hero together. The chemistry is combustible yet subtle at times. They complement each other is many ways and open each other eyes on different perspective. The hero did a lousy/jerk thing at 85% but enough grovel in my opinion to win the heroine heart at the end. Love the scene, plot and secondary characters. Overall a good book for romance readers, 4.5 stars.

    A Great Summer Read

    I was so excited to return to Jewel Cove. Love small town romance. A feel good read, city doctor meets small town doctor. Lizzie on a hiatus from the busy big city ER, with a broken heart, has agreed to help out at the small town clinic for the summer. Her partner is Josh, who lost his wife. Can they mix pleasure with business? Two broken hearts that need mending. Love the small town closeness and everyone knowing everything about everything. I highly recommend this book for an enjoyable summer read. If you have not read the other books in this series, you will after reading this one. I received this book from netgalley for an honest review.

    Great read!

    I really enjoyed the story. Donna Alward hasn’t written a book yet that I didn’t like. I thought Josh and Lizzie had great chemistry together. They had similar past hurts and it helped them bond as friends which in turn developed into something more substantial. The best part of the story was the support of the secondary characters. Couples from previous books as well as town members and new characters really complimented Josh and Lizzie well and rounded out the story nicely. If you are looking for a solid contemporary romance, I recommend any of Donna Alward’s books. She does romance well! ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

    Small town island romance!

    Donna Alward pulled me in to small town life in Jewell Cove and made me feel like I could be right there with all these characters! I loved the setting and Donna's descriptions of the small town, the water, the treasure island, and the storm (to name a few!) made it easy to picture and feel Jewell Cove. The place and the characters really made this a romance I enjoyed reading. Lizzie and Josh had a bit of a rough start when they first met, but the chemistry was there regardless. Both of them are hurting inside, trying to heal and move on...and neither is looking to get involved with anyone. But working together and living in a small town means they spend a lot of time together. Lizzie doesn't know what she wants, she can't plan for her future while her past still haunts her. She decides a summer fling might be just what she needs...but Josh isn't looking for a secret summer fling, no matter how attracted he is to Lizzie. I liked the pace of their relationship, the realistic bumps they encountered, the struggles they have, and the differences they had. I liked how neither of them pushed the other, but neither was afraid to say what they thought either. They have vastly different views of the future...but are they really that different? I felt the characters were well developed, and the emphasis of the plot is not just on the relationship between Lizzie and Josh, but on the healing both of them must go through to move on in their respective lives. This carries through the plot well and realistically. I really like how Donna brings in characters from other Jewell Island books in a way that they are relevant to this story, making Summer on Lover's Island a stand alone book. There are a lot of great secondary characters in this book who give us glimpses of sides of the main characters we might not see otherwise. I also really like how Donna brought in a local legend in Jewell Cove. This was an interesting addition to the plot and fit in well with the evolution of Lizzie and Josh's relationship. A small coastal town, a legend and a romance are the perfect makings for a good read. I'd recommend Summer on Lover's Island to any contemporary romance reader.

    Loved it!

    Loved it!! Wonderful sexy romance set in a quaint little coastal town. Superb writing as usual from this author. This one will make for a wonderful beach read! Big city doctor, Lizzie Howard, needs a break from her rapidly imploding life. On a forced sabbatical from her ER job, Lizzie has agreed to cover for her friend at a small town clinic while her friend is off on maternity leave. The clinic is owned and operated by Josh Collins who is perfectly happy in his small town, living a very quiet life. After the death of his wife, quiet is exactly what he wants and needs. While Lizzie is expecting Josh to be older and settled, she quickly learns he is anything but that! Sparks start to fly almost immediately but nothing can ever happen. Right?? This is one you definitely want on your must read list. I highly recommend it!
