Summary

The sea heals all things.

Tempest Island has weathered the worst of storms and still stands proud, providing its residents with the healing power of the sea and sun. When Alayna Scott’s life falls spectacularly apart, both professionally and personally, the executive chef’s only thought is getting back home to the island and her aunt Bea. Between the two, she hopes to put the past behind her and figure out how to move forward.

After being injured during a mission, Navy SEAL Luke Ryan is at a crossroads concerning his future and recognizes that his new neighbor is on a similar journey. But in addition to being in a state of flux, it’s clear to him that Alayna is worried about something besides her future, and Luke wonders what kind of secrets are behind the fear she’s trying to hide. When Alayna’s past comes rushing in, attempting to pull her under, Luke wants nothing more than to help her make it through this storm and on to calm waters.

But are Luke and Tempest Island enough?

Not what I had expected

It was a good story but I come to expect to laugh out loud with this author, that was not the case with this book.

Bad Narration

I love this author. I lost interest in the story because of the narrator. She was not suited to this story AT ALL. She sounded old and all the male voices sounded the same and not attractive at all. Ruined it for me.

terrible narrator. be sure to listen to the sample

I love J.D. I adore the Miss Fortune series so I didn't even hesitate to get this book. I've just started so I can't rate the story. but the narrator is all wrong for this story
I can't put my finger on the problem, I just think she sounds too old or something. I hope I can finish the book. I'll update once I finish.

Halfway through - can't keep interested.

I will try again, but at this point I just can't keep interested enough to continue listening. I have backed up several times, just not "something", not sure what.

good but not the usual

I've come to really love Jana DeLeon's characters and communities and stories... but this book lacked the humor and the gusto. the narrator was okay.. but not fabulous.

Excellent story, terrible narration

This romance murder mystery is one of the better stories that I’ve listened to in a while. The author’s writing reminded me of Nora Robert’s writing style with plot twists and turns. Despite the terrible narration, the story kept me listening where I got over the fact that the narrator made every male voice sound the same and reminded me of Humphry Bogart’s voice when he says, “why don’t you come out and see me some time.” I hope that Arthur chooses a different narrator who can add depth to the various characters. There was a clear distinction of voices for the female characters, which pushed me to finish the book.
