Secret Harbor by Anna Sullivan
Release Date - February 24, 2015
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
The third and final entry into Anna Sullivan's A Windfall Island Novel completes the saga of the missing heiress to the Stanhope fortune. Residents of Windfall Island believe that the descendant of Eugenia Stanhope must be one of three women who have grown up on the island. Maggie Solomon's story was first, then came Jessi Randall. In Secret Harbor, Hollywood star Paige Walker is the focus.
After a decade in Hollywood, Paige is back to hide from media following a huge scandal. The last thing she needs or even wants is to fall for Alec Barclay, an attorney who comes from a very prominent and wealthy Boston family. She cannot deny her maddening attraction to him, however.
While she struggles with her growing feelings, there is also the issue of who is the Stanhope heiress, if it's even true that Eugenia was stolen and raised on Windfall Island. There are people who will go to any length to keep the truth from being revealed, and that means Paige could be the next of the Windfall Island women to be in danger.
I have relished each book in Anna Sullivan's series, so I was eager to see how it would end. If you haven't read the others, I recommend reading them in order. There's a lot of background that you'll miss out on if you do not.
All in all, I wasn't quite as thrilled with Secret Harbor as I'd been with the previous two novels. The truth behind Paige's scandal seemed silly to me. She comes off as a very headstrong, opinionated person, yet she hid from this scandal. That didn't match up with the way her personality was. I'm definitely glad to learn the truth about Eugenia, but in the end, this romance was a letdown.
