|Summary, etc.:|| "A contemporary novel with a strong suspense element from Oscar-nominated actress Meg Tilly set on a peaceful island village in the Pacific Northwest. Dumped on the eve of her wedding and looking for a quiet place to lick her emotional wounds, Maggie Harris joins her sister on Solace Island, where she hopes to recover from the stunning betrayal. At first, Maggie resists Eve's impassioned argument about relocating permanently so the sisters can open their own local bakery. What she definitely doesn't need on her road to recovery are Eve's efforts to fix her up with their mysterious and alluring neighbor, Luke Benson--even if he is incredibly handsome and desirable. Just as Maggie starts to get comfortable in her new surroundings, a car tries to run her down in the middle of the street. If it weren't for Luke's extremely quick reflexes, Maggie could have been killed, leading her to wonder just who exactly Luke Benson really is... Luke thought he'd left the violence of the high risk security world behind. But he can't stand by while Maggie's life is threatened. Luke will do anything to keep her safe--even moving Maggie and her sister into his house with its state-of-the-art security features. But with the secrets between them and an unknown threat stalking her heels, Luke will have to think fast to prove to Maggie that she can trust him with her life--and with her heart"-- Provided by publisher.

After her fiancé leaves her the night before their wedding, Maggie flees to Solace Island with her sister, Eve, for a long, healing vacation. There she meets Luke, a handsome baker who has settled on the island after escaping his former life with a broken heart. Maggie and Eve are contemplating a move to the island to open a café when, halfway through, the plot takes a sharp turn from small-town romance to romantic suspense. Luckily, Luke used to run a high-end security company, so he is able to keep the sisters safe. Actor turned writer Tilly (Gemma, 2006) turns a potentially trite plot into a complex and involving tale. Supremely capable Maggie and Luke are fairly upfront about their feelings and easily negotiate consent and protection. Tilly's sensual descriptions of preparing and consuming food and wine subtly help fuel the sexual tension. An enjoyable supporting cast and perfectly portrayed relationship between sisters round out Tilly's successful and welcome venture into romance, and readers will be happy to learn that a second Solace Island novel is slated for the spring.
