Island Hope is completely outside of my normal reading. I virtually never read contemporary fiction, and I rarely read romance novels. A contemporary romance novel? This is a first for me.
Kimberly Rose Johnson paints a beautiful picture of Wildflower Island. It was easy to visualize this small town and the people who lived in it. I appreciated how when the newcomer to the island, Hope Michaels comes to the island, she isn’t treated as an outsider.
I have not read the previous three books in the series, but Island Hope was a pleasant book and I recognized that the parts I did not care for had more to do with my reading outside of my preferred genres than the story itself. It is a solid book, and I would recommend it to friends who enjoy contemporary romance.
Note: I received this book as an advance pre-reader copy.
