On Love's Gentle Shore (Prince Edward Island Dreams #3) by Liz Johnson
Fifteen years after she left Prince Edward Island, Natalie O'Ryan had no plans to return. But when her fiancé, music producer Russell Jacobs, books their wedding in her hometown and schedules a summer at Rose's Red Door Inn, she sets out to put the finishing touches on the perfect wedding. But she can't possibly prepare for a run-in with Justin Kane--the best friend she left behind all those years ago after promising to stay.

This is the third book in this series that I have read, and oh I loved to be back at the Red Door Inn, back with Marie and Seth, and the beautifully described Island of PEI, and yes I wish I were there!
This is Natalie and Justin’s story, a little girl who was the not seen as a child of this Crick, and if she was seen she was bullied, so can you imagine coming back here after fifteen years? Yes she has grown up and now is being married, and yet the bullies are still here and we see a few of them are still at it. Then there are those who did as much as was possible to help this neglected little girl, yes Aretha Franklin, and Mamma Cheese Kane were two who embraced this woman as a child, and then there was Justin, he stood up for her, and yet she feels he wasn’t there in the end.
How could she come back to the demons that abound here, and yet isn’t it time to face them, she is now in her thirties, and about to be married, as her fiancé has made the plans to marry where she is from.
We get to watch as the events unfold leading to the wedding of the year on this Island, and enjoy picking the flowers and yummy cake, along with the venue.
There are some surprises here and some concerns that will peek your interest, and a lot of needed healing and forgiveness. Enjoy!
