    Woo my! Solace Island represents me stretching my reading chops. I really mean S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g. But before I get started, I’ll let you know I enjoyed it!Billed as romantic suspense, Solace Island is heavy on the romance side for about the first half, and by romance, I mean the racy kind. This is steamy! About halfway through, the suspense hits, and it’s off to the races through the ending. Maggie is dumped at the altar and to find peace, ...

    3.5 StarsA little cheesy in spots but I liked it.

    I won a copy of Solace Island from a Goodreads Giveaway.I loved Ms. Tilly's performance in Agnes of God so after reading this, I can safely say she should not quit her day job. Solace Island was godawful. * Minor spoilers ahead * Where to begin?1. The barely there mystery that is wrapped up in the last 2 pages; it's really a romance filled with sex and horny horndog daydreams of what the main characters would like to do to each other2. The sto...

    Billed as a "contemporary novel with a strong suspense element," I must first and foremost warn those who, like me, aren't into "bodice-rippers" that this book is littered with the stuff. "He was envious of the strands of [her] hair for their right to caress her face at will," is a mild example; most of the rest is far, far more graphic. The suspense part didn't rear its much-anticipated head until the 50% mark (and boy, was I ever happy to see i...
  • Chris Conley
    A really solid romance with a good bit of suspense thrown in for good measure. Perhaps a bit more sex than I usually like but it sure fit in the story perfectly.

    Reviewer’s note: I attended The Romantic Times convention for all of about 48 hours this year and while there found out that actress Meg Tilley was releasing her first romance novel under the name Sara Flynn. I intended to stop by her table at the book fair and by one, but alas time constraints kept me from doing so, but I was lucky enough to meet and chat with her, so the minute I got home I ran to Amazon and purchased an e-copy of Solace Isla...
  • Meagan
    I'm going to open this review with the caveat that I don't have the greatest history with romantic suspense. Nor does my book club, which has been searching in vain, for over a year, for a romantic suspense option that we can enjoy. I've read award winners, I've gotten suggestions from smart people, and it just never seems to work out for me. So is it possible this is a virulent case of Not For Me Syndrome? Absolutely.However. I've heard nothing ...

    This book was almost comically bad 😬😂 and yet, I find myself still considering reading the sequel when it comes out lol
  • Paul Olkowski
    I won the Goodreads contest for this book by Meg Tilly. It was listed as a mystery. It really isn't. It is a romance novel ,nothing more. It zips along very fast ,but Tilly's style bothers me . She is obsessed with organic food, adjectives and sex. The plot is as shallow as a wading pool. The only chapter that holds any interest at all is 2 chapters from the end where all the action takes place. If Tilly had spent more time detailing the so calle...

    Maggie Harris' fiancé breaks up with her on the eve of their wedding. Her sister takes a heartbroken Maggie for a stay on Solace Island, a small island in the Pacific Northwest. Solace Island is a funky retreat with a lot of artisan and hipster types. And a really hot baker, Luke Benson, with a mysterious past. What follows is the inevitable romance and some surprising action and adventure. Now I usually avoid romances like the plague. Totally n...

    I read this book in less than a day. I started this morning and I finished this evening. This book was a contemporary romance with an element of suspense that kept me reading and I couldn't put this book down. I loved the chemistry between Luke and Maggie and I enjoyed the bond between sisters. I am already so excited to read Cliff's Edge (book 2) and all I know about Book 3 is a title, Hidden Cove, and an expected publication date of October 1, ...

    For Maggie Harris, life was falling apart. Her fiancé called her on her wedding day to share the news that he was not going to marry her after all; he was too busy hooking up with someone else. To make matters worse, her fiancé was also her business partner and the breakup of their relationship necessitated the breakup of the business. Since she was a 60% owner in the company she announced that Brett could either buy her out or she was going to...

    *I won an ARC of this book on one of the wonderful Goodreads Giveaways, and as a courtesy from Berkley Publishing Group. Here is my honest review in exchange...*When I finished this book, I could have cried. Out of happiness, because the torture was over. Out of sadness, because it is incredibly unfortunate that any tree has to die just so this "novel" could be published on paper... it should have stayed in the kingdom of the immaterial things th...

  • Tami
    Don't judge a book by it's authorI admit I had my doubts about the book when Amazon recommended it to me. I will be honest, when I realized who the author was I thought here we go. An actor trying something different when they should stick to acting.I was so wrong and apologize for thinking that.This was one of the best well rounded and written romance novels I have read. It had a little bit of everything. I laughed at parts, it had suspense, rom...
