It’s a summer of new beginnings and maybe even love.

"Light After Dark is a welcome return to the island. We get real life family issues as well as believable characters and the must have - Happily Ever After." —Lisa at Comfy Chair Reviews

Mallory Vaughn is at a crossroads in her life. A year after learning that Big Mac McCarthy is her father, she’s spending more and more time on Gansett Island, surrounded by the large and boisterous McCarthy family. When she’s laid off from her longtime job, Mallory goes to visit her family on Gansett and tries to figure out the next chapter. An unexpected job offer will have her packing up her home in Providence to move to the island for at least the summer, if not longer. She decides to make this the “Summer of Mallory,” full of new adventures, new people and new opportunities. Will a new love also be part of the Summer of Mallory? Anything is possible on Gansett Island, especially true love.

Take the ferry back to Gansett to catch up with the McCarthy family and their friends. Be on hand as Laura and Owen welcome their twins and the family comes back together for another summer of love and adventure on Gansett Island.

I don't know how Marie does it but she has me hooked by the first paragraph . Love getting reacquainted with all the characters I have met previously . This book touched on many issues and handled them beautifully. It is so worth the read. Just wish books came out faster but then Marie would be beyond exhausted. Love her new idea about the novellas can't wait. Time to start the reread.

I'm glad Mallory finally got her HEA. Without giving away any spoilers, I think she ended up with the right person for her. I love all of Marie's books and cannot wait for the next one!

Marie Force always delivers! Whether it’s a short novella or a full-length story. LIGHT AFTER DARK is no exception. Mallory is a brilliant heroine. She’s smart, loving and dedicated to her craft. But she’s got a lot of resentment and hurt in her heart. I loved that she was flawed and strong enough to recognize when she needed help. I enjoyed watching her grow and rediscover herself. The hero is equally flawed but so very endearing. He and Mallory worked well together and I also enjoyed their courtship! Ms. Force wanted the hero to be a surprise so I won’t mention his name in the review, but I do love her sense of humor! As the story begins, she introduced not one but two different men and it’s still a while before we know who the hero is! This is my first read of the series and because it’s Book 16, I wasn’t privy to many of the relationships in the story. There are many couples and I found myself wanting to know more about them, how they met and all the follies that ensued during their own courtships! You can definitely read this as a standalone, but to get the full Gansett Island experience, I’d start at the beginning. And the first book, MAID FOR LOVE is currently a FREE eBook! The writing was great, the story even greater. I’d recommend any of her books (The Green Mountain series is my favorite). You’ll always get a quality read full of heart! ***I voluntarily read an early copy of the book offered to me by the publisher. All conclusions reached are my own***

I have to say I am a huge fan of Marie and especially Gansett Island. After finishing Light After Dark I do believe it has become my favorite book of hers. This book really tugs at your heartstrings. So much so I teared up several times and at least once had a few tears escape. I was so in love I also purchased the audio version. There is plenty of laughter, tears, and romance. We also get caught up with some of the other residents along the way. I highly recommend reading this book. 5 stars from me.

As long as Marie Force keeps writing books in the Gansett Island series, I'll keep reading them. I am addicted to these characters, each one having their own unique story. Quinn and Mallory offered a later in life love connection that was uplifting. Good to catch updates and glimpses into the on-going romances of past books, as well.

Mallory is finding things a bit difficult after learning who her father is, after losing her mother who hid this from her for almost 40 years. She has decided after life through her yet another curveball to spend the summer on Gansett Island. Mallory finds a lot more than herself and he needs her it seems as much as she needs him. This is such a sweet story. We do get tons of hot but to me it's all pure romance. I have to say I haven't gotten to read many of the books yet in this series but I hope someday soon. Can't wait to see what the next book holds in store for us as many of the families have exciting things going on.

Marie Force books are always such a joy for me to pick up and read, especially if we are visiting Gansett Island! Not only do we get the story of Mallory and we get to go on the adventure that is "The Summer of Mallory", but we also get to catch up with some of our other favorite island residents. After a year full of change, Mallory is back on Gansett trying to figure out what is next for her. She's lost her mom and her job and found her father and a huge extended family that she can't be happier to have. She's trying to figure out what is best for her as she moves forward, all with a secret that she hasn't let her new family in on. Mallory ends up meeting a couple of very nice men during a meeting she attends on the island. Mason is the fire chief and Quinn is the new doctor that is going to be running the new extended care facility on the island. She's intrigued by both men, but which one will she choose? As Mallory and one of the men get to really know one another, they realize they have much more in common than they initially realized. They both have had struggles, kept secrets and are working on coming out stronger on the other end and together they realize they could be stronger as a unit. I really enjoyed the story! Marie does a fantastic job of making you feel like you are friends with all of the people that are on the island and that you're dropping in to check in on everyone. I'm looking forward to the stories that are still to come from this awesome island!
