(Re-)Release Day Review: Maid For Love by Marie Force


Maid for Love (Gansett Island, #1)
Marie Force
288 Pages
April 24, 2018 (re-release)

Synopsis (from Goodreads): 
Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she’s knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy’s Resort Hotel by Gansett’s “favorite son,” Mac McCarthy. He’s back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be “maid” for love.


Laura's Review: 
This is a great book to bring on vacation with you. Light, quick, fun - without too much conflict weighing it down. It is set on an island, and definitely has that New England kind of feel to the town. I expected a little more from Marie Force, the insta-love, grudge-holding, and poor decision making of a few of the characters was a little hard to overlook, but once you get past all that, the romance is sweet and charming and the characters are (mostly) likable. Nothing too memorable with this one, but an enjoyable escape for a few hours.

Maid for Love: 3.5/5 stars

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange of this honest review.
