Is It Any Wonder (Nantucket Love Story #2) by Courtney Walsh


Can a promise made as kids bring them back together as adults? In this Nantucket-set beach read, “master of the genre” (Midwest Book Review) Courtney Walsh delivers a sparkling inspirational romance about first love and second chances.

Twelve years ago, Cody Boggs and Louisa Chambers made a pact that no matter where their lives took them, they’d return to Nantucket Island’s Brant Point Lighthouse on July 30, their shared golden birthday, and continue their tradition of exchanging birthday wishes. But that was before a tragic accident upended both of their lives, irrevocably pulling them apart.

Their worlds collide just months before that particular day when Louisa’s fledgling event planning company is hired by the local Coast Guard station, where she discovers Cody has recently returned to the island as the second in command. As they plan a regatta fundraiser, hoping to promote positive PR in the community, neither can deny the fireworks each encounter ignites. But working together also brings up memories of the day Cody’s father died, revealing secrets that have Cody and Louisa questioning everything they thought they knew and felt about their families and each other.

My Review

This is a beautiful love story, one that starts as young kids, and ends at their golden birthday.
There is such a range of emotions to this read, the love and caring for an elderly woman, Maggie, spunky to the end.
Then we have a young woman who is quickly heading to her golden birthday, she has an event planning company, and is excellent at doing her job. Her friend and co-birthday guy is now a member of the Coast Guard, and he also excels at his job.
What happened to these two, so many years lost? So much pain, loss, heartache, and they need forgiveness.
A beautifully written story of young love and loss, and faith, and giving to others in need.
An inspirational page turner, filled with surprises that I never saw coming. You don't want to miss.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Tyndale, and was not required to give a positive review.
