Series: Angel Island
Claire North understands how Angel Island sets the rhythm for her own serenity and ease. But a visitor has disturbed her peaceful heart. She knew him as a troubled boy who came to her soup kitchen in Boston, full of half-truths but brimming with trust. She wasn’t able to say good-bye to him then. Now, miraculously, a second chance to help him has come.
Jamie Carter, now a young man, is more in need of Claire’s wisdom than ever. But when she suspects he is back to his old ways, her faith is truly put to the test...
On the other side of the island, Avery Bishop is making a fresh start of her own, opening a new café. Her culinary school training is scoffed at by Mike Rossi, owner of the restaurant across the street. But Avery is determined to show this burger-flipping hero a real cook has arrived. If only Mike’s charming smile didn’t make her forget that he is her fiercest competitor.

This book was so boring I couldn't even finish it. The proofreader did not do a very good job. There were lots of mistakes. The characters were flat and the story never took off.

I enjoyed this book as I have all the Angel Island stories. I did not think it had as much suspense as the previous books, though. I thought the relationship between Avery and Mike could have been a little more fiery or suspenseful. Perhaps even his children might have had a more prominent role. I was just a little let down by the way the relationship was written.

I was so pleased to see that Katherine Spencer wrote another Angel Island story. When Thomas Kinkade passed away, I was afraid that we had seen the last of these wonderful books. (I hope she will continue with Cape Light as well!!)
So we're back at the Inn with Lisa and Claire, and we meet three new characters. Jamie is a long ago friend of Claire's from when she worked at a place where the homeless boy lived. Now an adult, he has come back to find his special friend. Avery has opened a new cafe on the island and Nick is her only real "competitor" and yet a wonderful friendship is formed. So there is a full and fun summer for us to read about.
I enjoyed the tales and the writing is as good as it ever was. I closed the book with a sigh of contentment, and a touch of sadness. I hated to see it come to and end. This is a wonderful story for adults and teens alike. Many good lessons are woven into the plots. I found it a bit pricey, but once I got lost in the
contents, I forgot about what I paid for it. â˜º

I've enjoyed all of the Angel Island series. The characters all seem so real. It feels like you're right there on Angel Island.
The new characters help keep things interesting, also. I like the ongoing details. The combination of old and new characters.
Very good read!!!
