    Even though Maggie Solomon hadn’t been born on Windfall Island, she was one of the island’s favorite people. Beautiful, passionate and loyal, Maggie loved Windfall and it’s inhabitants with all her heart. As a charter pilot who just happens to bring ‘outsiders’ onto the island she was happiest when she brought them back to the mainland. However, her latest passenger Dexter Keegan was more than just a passenger arousing the natural curiosity of the island natives, as well as arousing feelings in Maggie that she hadn’t experienced in a very long time. Feelings that were both exciting and scary for a woman who was deathly afraid of being perceived as weak.Dex, cop turned PI is on a covert mission to solve a 100 year old cold-case that could make or break his career: attempting to find information on the identity of the missing Stanhope heir, kidnapped nearly a century ago. And didn’t Maggie’s bright blue eyes seem to resemble exactly the same eyes as the very wealthy Stanhope clan? But when sabotage to Maggie’s Piper cub almost led to disaster - Dex will do anything to protect the woman he firmly believes is the only one for him.*** In this contemporary mystery romance, author Sullivan created a delightful locale with a lovely bunch of quirky secondary characters - the kind of characters that you love and add a full richness to any story. In spite of the originality of Maggie, a beautiful charter pilot, it took me a bit to warm up to her as Ms. Sullivan created her with both a big chip on her shoulder and attitude galore. Naturally, it took a little while to discover the reasons why Maggie had such a bad attitude, but then it made sense and easier to relate to Maggie’s childhood pain and begin to understand her.Dex was also a nice addition with an enormous amount of patience when it came to dealing with the abrasiveness of Maggie’s off-handed and sometimes nasty comments. All he really knew in the beginning was that he was terribly attracted to Maggie and his ‘lust’ hormones were raging. Obviously, his commitment level was a bit ‘lost in space’ when faced with Maggie’s honesty when she chose to announce her feelings.All in all, the mystery and research of trying to discover what happened 100 years ago from a very close-mouthed and close-knit community was the basis of the plot and the mystery. Having Maggie and Dex fighting the sensual pull was more or less secondary. Early on you know who ‘one’ of the bad guys is, then towards the end it seems as though the ending gets rushed leaving the reader with a choice to either go ahead and pre-order the next book in the series or just assume by the prologue of the next book that you know where it’s going and who the actual heir is which is why I am not giving this a higher rating. The book gives too much away.Bottom line: Good but it honestly did not engage me as much as other mysteries have. Personally, I don’t like to know so early in the book who the bad guy is - I like to try to figure it out myself or be surprised.Marilyn Rondeau, for [...]

    "Temptation Bay" was appealing - small town romance; sassy, smart heroine; hero with a sense of humor (actually they both had a good humor); a strong mystery; and heat that sparked off the page.Dex is on Windfall Island to find a missing heiress, but his work is a secret. Maggie is an islander who owns a plane service on the island and flies him over. There's an immediate physical attraction but they bump heads, particularly over the truth about his stay on the island. Maggie is spunky, quick-witted, and not afraid to speak her mind. Dex is also quick-witted and they enjoy sparring with each other. Maggie is frustrated with Dex's secretiveness about his visit to the island while Dex finds the locals aren't as easy to milk for information as he expected. There are some humorous scenes where some of the single island women aggressively pursue Dex. The islanders are independent, quirky but not overly so, and fiercely loyal to each other. Well, most of them. As in any population, there are predators and worms to gum up the works.Maggie and Dex are great together and I was rooting for them to make their relationship work. Maggie has some emotional brick walls and Dex is determined to demolish them but respectfully. Things move quickly between them and there are some cliches but I could overlook them as I just loved Dex and Maggie together. I really liked Maggie and how she handled herself. She's nobody's doormat, a great friend, a skilled mechanic, and has a soft side.Sullivan doles out clues and hints about the missing heiress and at least one of the locals is actively working to prevent Dex from finding her. Or is he? I can't decide if he is or if Sullivan is misleading us. He seems like a good guy and that's one of Sullivan's strengths; most of the characters are not all good or all bad, but they fall somewhere in between. No one is perfect, but they're all real; each is distinctive, they're not interchangable. The romance for the next book is set up in this one and I'm looking forward to it. The mystery is slowly being uncovered but Dex still has a lot of work to do and more answers to find. I have some ideas and can't wait to see if I'm right or not. Happily, I have book two sitting on my kindle. :)
