Emily Donovan has moved to Puffin Island to be a stand-in mother for her niece Lizzy. Between desperately safeguarding Lizzy and her overwhelming fear of the ocean, Emily has lost count of the "just breathe" pep talks she has given herself. And that's before charismatic local yacht club owner Ryan Cooper kisses her. Ryan knows all about secrets and it's clear to him that Emily is hiding something. So Ryan decides he's going to help her unwind and enjoy the sparks between them. But can Puffin Island work its magic on Emily and get her to take the biggest risk of all: putting her heart in someone else's hands?

Although it is technically part of Sarah Morgan's Puffin Island series, I read First Time in Forever to get the backstory on Emily Donovan and Ryan Cooper. They were married in Sunset in Central Park which is part of the author's From Manhattan with Love series. I've been on an end-of-summer binge of these wonderful beach books.

If you like this book, I highly recommend Sunset in Central Park. Frankie Cole's story is the most intriguing of the trio of books about friends who decamped from Puffin Island for the bright lights of Manhattan. Eva's story (Miracle on 5th Avenue) was a huge disappointment as was Paige's story (Sleepless in Manhattan). I did enjoy the stories of Daniel Knight (Moonlight over Manhattan) and his sister Felicity (Holiday in the Hamptons).
