    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, ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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.

    1.5 stars rounded up.I had to do some major skimming to make it through this. The potential was there but it came off as the cliche characters in an insta lust romance with a pretend backdrop of suspense. The description states strong suspense element but I disagree.I did however like the cover of the book.

    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...

    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...

    Solace Island by Sara Flynn/Meg Tilly was more romance than mystery at the beginning of the book but at about the half-way point the plot took a turn toward suspense and never looked back. Once the action started I couldn't put the book down. I liked the characters and their development as the story progressed. I was only partially right about who was behind the murder attempts and the reveal had me on the edge of my seat. I've already put a hold...

    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, ...

    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...

    "The car door burst open, and a woman tumbled out. Recognition flashed through him. It was the woman who had been weeping on the ferry."......Maggie is off to “Solace Island.” An escape attempt from the worst thing that has ever happened to her. Her sister, Eve, goes to be with her. Seeking peace and quiet, it soon turns to anything but.I instantly loved “Solace Island.” It’s the kind of place I hope exists somewhere. Is Maggie going to...

    3.5 Stars - I really liked how sex positive and focused on agency/consent this contemporary is. I liked the characters & world, and found the plot kind of pleasantly mindless. Alas, this doesn't fully work as either a straight forward small town contemporary or as a suspense. It's kind of fifty-fifty, which keeps it from being entirely successful. That said, I'll happily continue in the series because it has a nice lightness of touch that I enjoy...
