A nice, light, easy read about sweet romance in the Vineyard. I have visited Martha's Vineyard & adore the place. References to places I know we're cool. The characters even ate at The Black Dog! A large souvenir black dog hangs off the back of my living room sofa.

One of my favourite authors of all time and will be for eternity is Melody Carlson, there is something about her writing that will never bore me as I rapidly turn the pages in the book, reading page by page. A friend of mine had been talking about this series called "Love Finds You" and how wonderful it was , so I decided to purchase a few and this is the first one I have read in the series and it was actually really good and I am looking forward to reading and making my way through the complete ...more

This story was interesting and not bad. I read it quickly enough.

Waverly is a widow who wants to work at an Art gallery in Chicago. When her mother Vivian calls her and invites her to Martha's Vineyard, MA, she feels it is time to leave Chicago and get working at "The Gallery" her mom and aunt just bought. When she arrives she is disappointed to find out that "The Gallery" is not what she thought it'd be.

Blake has worked in the movie industry for a while and decided on an early retirement. His

This is another "Love Finds You" and I enjoyed reading this one as much or better than some of the other I have read.

Artist Waverly Brennan a widow was looking for a new start when her Mom called and told her that she had purchased a gallery in Martha's Vineyard. Thinking this would be a great new start Waverly gave up her lease and moved to Martha's Vineyard only to discover that the gallery was not a art galley but one which video games were enjoyed. Not having anything to go back to decided t

This book is part of a series of romances set I places all across the US. After reading this book, I might need to "visit" some of the other places.

Waverly is stuck I a rut. She likes her job okay, her husband passed away, and her apartment leaves something to be desired. When her mother calls, inviting her to pack up and move to Martha's Vineyard to manage The Gallery, it seems too good to be true. And then she gets there. Expectations, secrets, and Cousin Janice all make Waverly's life a roll

I admit that at first I wasn't so sure about this book. The first few chapters were really slow. Then, Waverly ends up on Martha's Vineyard, and the storyline really took off! I really liked the wide variety of characters. (Loved Sicily, and thought Janice was totally cringe-worthy!) I also liked the setting of the novel (considering a recent favourite series is set in Cape Cod, these books are making me want to TRAVEL!), and the fact that the author was not afraid of tackling some more serious ...more

This was a nice little romance. There are many titles in the "Love Finds You" series to choose from. I typically want to read the more modern stories, especially if they take place in a setting I am interested in. Martha's Vineyard definitely played a part in this one but I would have liked it to be even more so. (Seeing as how I'll probably never go there.)

My son gave me this one for Christmas a few years ago. Glad I finally got to it this summer.

This is actually the second time I've read this story, and I thought it was very touching the first time I read it and that does hold true for this time as well. I loved Waverly and how she always tried to make the best out of a bad situation. The story was very entertaining, and touched on deep subjects and how to deal with them with faith. The religion wasn't a "smack you in the face" type, but subtle and realistic. This is one I will look into owning!

LFY in MV, MA was a fun, quick read. I gave it three stars because there are some dialogue issues - children sounding too old, adults sounding immature, and some just plain awkward conversations. Regardless, it was still entertaining enough. I think this author is more comfortable in the YA genre, but I still appreciate her many adult novels.

This was a good summer read. I really liked it a lot. I am originally from New England and it made me miss my summers there. The characters were lovable, well except the cousin; and honestly, i think we all have THAT cousin.
