Windswept, isolated and ruggedly beautiful, Puffin Island is a haven for day-trippers and daydreamers alike. But this charming community has a way of bringing people together in the most unexpected ways... It's been a summer of firsts for Emily Donovan. From becoming a stand-in mom to her niece, Lizzy, to arriving on Puffin Island, her life has become virtually unrecognizable. Between desperately safeguarding Lizzy and her overwhelming fear of the ocean--which surrounds her everywhere she goes!--Emily has lost count of the number of "just breathe" pep talks she's given herself. And that's before charismatic local yacht club owner Ryan Cooper kisses her... Ryan knows all about secrets. And it's clear that newcomer Emily--with her haunted eyes and the little girl she won't let out of her sight--is hiding from something besides the crazy chemistry between them. So Ryan decides he's going to make it his personal mission to help her unwind and enjoy the sparks! But can Puffin Island work its magic on Emily and get her to take the biggest leap of trust 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).
