Dr. David Lawrence has spent the last two years atoning for his sins and recovering from the devastating breakup with Gansett Island golden girl Janey McCarthy. As the island's only doctor, he's had ample opportunity to show his fellow island residents that there's more to him than the guy who disappointed Janey so profoundly. Now if only he could find a way to forgive him...more

4.5. It's Marie Force. I am on holidays, you would think I would have time for detailed reviews but nope, have hardly time to read. Love Marie's books. Only gripe I have is that Shannon is not a man's name, there is nobody, especially a male in Ireland who is called Shannon. C'mon Marie.... ridiculous. "Tis a pleasure to meet you'" or something like that - we don't speak like that in Ireland. Don't put in "stage-Oirish" characters like friggin Tom Cruise in Far and Away or whatever the name of t...more

It’s “Time for Love” and another voyage to the beautiful and picturesque Gansett Island. Readers will once again be swept away by an emotionally charged romance between two very lucky individuals who are about to find their elusive happily ever after.

The forever kind of love could easily be within reach for Daisy Babson and Dr. David Lawrence. Yes, this may be the right time for a shift from friendship into a deeper and more meaningful relationship. For one, it will be the chance at redemption a...more
Can't wait...

3.5 stars. There was a nice amount of drama here from several different situations to keep the story flowing. Janey and Tiffany’s ex supplied the adrenaline to keep those pages turning. However….Don’t want to diminish my love for this series but as far as the rest of the story this one was just above okay for me. David/Daisy didn’t really do it for me. Seamus/Caroline, nah, not much into cougar town. Now Blaine/Tiffany are another story. RAWRRR…love that Blaine. Pure sex in a uniform. And my pur...more
Listened to on audio, narrated by Holly Fielding.

1 star for the audio. All of these are narrated by the same person and sometimes they are really good and sometimes they are really bad. Whilst I enjoy this narrators overall performance, because it suits the books, she does often say the wrong word or the wrong name and it's pretty obvious that it's wrong. This is forgiveable.

What is unforgiveable is that this has not been edited or produced in any way. There is no consistency. When there has obv...more
So sue me but I lost all respect for David with the way he checked out of his relationship with Janey. Yes, Marie has tried to redeem him with the way he's been there to jump into medical emergencies but I still can't get past what he did. I also found it quite creepy that he treated Daisy for a sexual assault and then weeks later he's dating her and trying to have sex with her. Just all kinds of weird for me. Things I loved about this book, seeing everyone from all the other books and the addit...more
WOW!!! What a F A B L U O S !! Book. Loved it. I really enjoyed seeing David do a 360 and learn from his mistakes.. he was kind and tender and a true gentleman with Daisey. After all she had been through she was strong and brave and resilient. It was nice nice to see David finally go on that Merry Go Round Ride and Grab his Gold Ring.

Blaine and Tiff... Wow. Did not see that one coming... Loved it!! Loved the Wedding... that man has it bad and it is nice to see he is still determined to not only...more
David's redemption

Once again I found myself completely immersed and captivated in the lives of the residents of Gansett Island. Time for Love doesn't disappoint in the slightest and for 6 hours I have barely moved from the sofa.

Focussing on David and Daisy, whose prospective love story has been simmering away nicely, Marie has done a fabulous job of keeping the lives of all the islanders we love in the frame as well as introducing new characters (hopefully paving the way for many more trips to...more

Just finished this absolutely AMAZING book by Fab Author Marie Force!!! “Time for Love,” is Marie’s 9th book in this great series. Wow she really outdid herself with this book. When you finish one of Marie’s books you think it cannot get any better – but wait, the next one comes on and she absolutely amazes us!! I could not put this book down, and I did not want it to end. I LOVED the way Marie always updates us throughout all of her book on all of our favorite couples in Gansett Island. I canno...more
Honestly, I think this book was dragged down with all the other characters from the previous books that came back and *had* to have their story lines continued in this book. The story itself would have flowed much more naturally and better if we didn't have to stop by all the rest all the time.

Some of the story lines were valid and added to the book, Janey and Joe's for example, but Maddie & Mac's storyline could just as easily have been a standalone novella for all the value it added.

I li...more

This was a great book as all of the Gansett Island books are. This was deals with the relationship between Dr David Lawrence (Janey's ex) and Daisy. They each come with their own baggage, but they try to find peace as they deal with their old relationship problems. It's really a good read and I know you will enjoy This was a great book as all of the Gansett Island books are. This mainly follows the romance of Dr David Lawrence (Janey's ex) and his new love interest Daisy. It also follows some of...more
It is rare that I remain interested in a series for more than a handful of books, but my enthusiasm for these characters after nine books has not diminished. As cliched as it sounds, the characters are like old friends and the island is a favorite destination for all Force fans.
Time for Love is another successful visit to the island, where we meet new characters while also catching up with favorites from earlier books. It is no wonder these books have landed the author on the NY Times and US T...more
This one really pulled on my heart strings. I, along with all the other characters on Gansett, didn't think David deserved a chance at happiness. How wrong can one be? He turned out to be not only a kind, decent man, but also the hero of the day. He doesn't make Daisy feel like a victim after what happens to her, he treats her with kindness and common decency and finds out who the real Daisy is, someone who is perfect for him, and who can help him forget the past. We learn that what he did in th...more
Another story from Gansett Island. The only problem is that it is a little unbelievable that Dr. David Lawrence, the man Janey McCarthy Cantrell loved, lived with and was engaged to for 13 years - and who cheated on her in spectacular fashion - has made peace with the McCarthy family. Even saving Janey's life with emergency surgery. No where in real life would this happen. Glad there's a Gansett. The story was okay and Dr. David does redeem himself and fall in love with the sweet Daisy. Another...more

This is definitely not my first McCarthy Rodeo but, it astounds me that this series gets more fantastic with each book. Ms. Force has a unique style, in that she gives the readers glimpses of past couples in each new book. I really love that aspect of this series. I feel like if the new books are about a new couple, as well as up to dates on past couples it keeps me more engaged. Because everyone on the island is so tied together we end up getting a lot of new favorite moments with all of the ch...more

so nice to catch up with old friends...
3.5 stars. Very sweet story.

Each new book is like coming home. I didn't think there were any characters that I would love more than Maddie & Mac. But Marie Force has taken Dr. David Lawrence who we all despised and made him into someone we can love.

David has spent the last 2 years regretting a decision & not sure that he could ever atone for it. He believes that most of the Gansett Island's residences hate him. David meets Daisy Babson and has an instant attraction to her but Daisy has been abused and is not ready...more
Marie Force has the best name because she is a FORCE. I have enjoyed every single book of The McCarthys of Gansett Island series and book #9 is NO exception.

Marie puts a little blurb in the beginning of this story stating that in the next to come we will not see as much of the other characters story in play but be focused more on the main story, either way it will be a good read.

Book #9 is focusing on David & Daisy. They are perfect together.

***Contains SPOILERS for Book #8 & 9***

When I finished Time for Love I text DiDi, and told her my review would be short and sweet. As in READ THIS SERIES NOW! Marie Force is a stellar writer and story teller. Every time I finish one of Marie’s books I count down until I can get my hands on the next book. There is just something about the Gansett Island books that draw me in and keep me coming back for more.

Dr. David Lawrence is still beating himself up for breaking the he...more
***Slight Details***

TIME FOR LOVE was a lovely addition to the McCarthy series. David and Daisy truly deserved their happily ever after.

For two years, David Lawrence has struggled to move on and forgive himself for the failed relationship with Janey due to his cheating. Despite the town and the McCarthy’s gradual acceptance of him, since he has saved many of their lives, David hasn’t allowed himself to move on.

Since his friendship with Daisy picked up after her beating from now ex-boyfriend Tr...more

I loved this series up until Book 9, Time for Love. If I had to review this book on the main romance of David and Daisy, I would have given it a one-star. It was only with the added characters that I gave it a two-star and that might have been a wee stretch.

The romance between David and Daisy was infantile and I did not care for it at all. Daisy acted like a thirteen-year-old and her apparent lack of knowledge made her appear beyond ignorant. Her weak character made the book dull and boring. And...more
So happy to be back on Gansett Island! Marie Force does not disappoint! I had lukewarm feelings going in reading this because of David’s past with Janey. I certainly didn’t hate David and thought he was on the road to redemption before this book came out but I just wasn’t sure. Now I’m sure. David and Daisy are perfect together! They are sweet but still spicy. David was patient yet still passionate. He reassured Daisy throughout the book and I found him dreamy. I especially liked how both charac...more

The McCarthy's of Gansett Island book 9
By Marie Force
Review by: Wendy
3.5 Stars

David Lawrence is the island resident doctor. He shocked and disappointed the locals when he cheated on Janey Macarthy. Two years later he has slowly made people see him differently, especially when he saved baby Hailey Macarthy from a certain death, had he not been there.

Daisy Babson has been through a horrible ordeal when he boyfriend Truck Henry beat her within an...more
4.25 out of 5. This truly family-oriented series is now in its ninth book and picks up the story of Dr. David Lawrence, a young physician that made his first appearance as the cheating fiance of one of the McCarthy family members. Now, after living a solo life and managing to establish himself as a changed man, his truly compassionate nature extends help to a woman who has been severely abused and whose sweet kindness begins to ensnare him. This is a story of second or third chances, two people...more
Another Amazing Marie Force book! I am so happy David got a story and that he gets to feel happy in his hometown again. What he did to Janey was awful, but he still is a good man. Both he and Janey found their true paths in life and might not have if he'd not cheated on her.

David is caring and compassionate. He is the perfect small town doctor. His heart of gold is seen by everyone he comes in contact with. Daisy is sweet and loving and has been through so much. The development of her and David...more

So sweet, it's cavity inducing. This series is a pretty great comfort read. There isn't much real tension to be found, the conflict is perfunctory at best, but you can check in with most of the couples from previous entries in the series and see how much in looove they still are. Sure, things are happening to these people, but at this point Marie Force has pretty much dispensed with the Big Misunderstandings in favor very tiny misunderstandings. I'm not really complaining, but you shoul...more
