Dare Island Series
The start of her Dare Island series, Virginia Kantra introduces us to the Fletcher family. Set on the North Carolina coast, Matt Fletcher and his father run a fishing boat business, catering to the rich people who spend money for a day's worth of fishing.
As a single father of a teenager, Matt finds himself attracted to the new teacher, Allison Carter. She's his son's teacher and far too young for him. Allison also finds herself attracted to the local heart throb, yet as much as she tries to avoid him having heard stories about his love life, she finds that she enjoys his company. Yet when Allison's parents arrive to talk some sense into their daughter by urging her to leave the remote town, Allison fears that her heart may have already been lost, just at Matt decides they really don't belong together. Can she teach him that all they need is each other? I really enjoyed this heartwarming and romantic journey between two people who have to learn to trust each other and not what everyone else thinks. With Matt's brother, Luke, bringing his daughter home while he's in the military, as well as their sister Meg arriving, there will be plenty more adventures for this family that will capture reader's hearts.
