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

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

This story had an exciting ending and revisiting relationships from previous books in the series was nice but most of it felt very chick-lit where problems are handily resolved, everyone loves everyone and everyone hates the bad guys. Dr. David, who had a bad breakup with the heroine in Fool for Love, is attracted to hotel maid manager Daisy who was recently a victim of a brutal beating and attempted rape.

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

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

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

I took my time with this one so that may have colored my opinion - but I just can't get enough of Gansett Island. I loved the character of Dr. David in this one. He really is a good guy who made a colossal mistake for which he refuses to forgive himself, even though everyone else has. And Daisy is an enjoyable character but slightly unbelievable in her change from domestic abuse victim to confident woman. I rooted for her to the end, but the dramatic change from being white trash to potential do ...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

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

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.

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

I have no clue why I even bothered to finish this book. This was the first book in this series that I read and the author was big on incorporating a lot of characters from previous books. Apart from that she was also linking back to events that happened before this book. This resulted in my being lost most of the time. A family tree or something like that would have been really helpful.

Furthermore there were some typos: 'have a ways to go'. Ways is plural and a is for one, so I don't think this

I mostly enjoyed this one. I did come to care for David a lot and Daisy is an awesome h. At times towards the end, however, I began to have serious doubts about David being completely over Janey. I believe that he loves Daisy and will be faithful to her but I really believe that he still loves Janey and that's a hard pill to swallow when I so badly need him not to. It was hard reading the scenes between him and Janey even though he was acting in a professional capacity.

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.

Didn't finish after chapter 2. Um, I feel like I walked into the middle of the story. Seriously I had to go back and check to make sure this wasn't the sequel to these love interest's story. Because in the first chapter, daisy basically gives us this summary of things that have happened in her life to get her to the point that she's at now with David. Which is at the beginning of their full on romance. They've met, they've grown close, and so already the first time the two are together they are ...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

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

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

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

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.

Absolutely adored this book. I am so glad that Daisy got what she deserved and loved the surprises entwined within the book.
Marie Force never ever fails to deliver warm, stubborn and endearing characters that make you want to cheer them on as they live their lives, and story lines that bring you to tears, have you laughing your head off and also gasping for breath.
