Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Temptation Bay, A Windfall Island Novel, is the first in a new series set in Maine. It's no secret that I love Maine. I love the people, the scenery, and the foods. Anna Sullivan's new novel captures the magic of Maine.

Charter pilot Maggie Solomon loves the island she calls home. She had a bit of a tough upbringing with a military father who disliked her independent nature. She never expects to find herself falling for a man who drives her crazy. Especially when that same man really won't tell anyone why he's come to their island.

Dexter Keegan is on Windfall Island to research the kidnapping of an infant decades ago. The missing infant's ancestors believe she may have survived an explosion that officials believed killed the infant. Dexter's case involves determining if the infant did in fact survive and if she may have left heirs. If she did survive, anyone heirs are worth a lot of money.

It isn't long before Maggie's hard shell is softening and letting Dexter in. She's falling in love with a man who is completely wrong for her, and who plans to leave the island as soon as his case is solved.

It took me a bit to get into the story. I didn't enjoy Maggie. She came off as a little too bitchy, especially with a stranger. As the story progressed, however, I did grow to like her, and I certainly adored Dex. Before long, I was hooked and couldn't put the book down.

I am really looking forward to the next novel. Maggie's business partner, a single mom, is ready for love, and it looks like she's about to find the perfect match!
