Pitcairn Island:



A real island somewhere in the middle of the ocean off the coast of New Zealand...along with Tahiti, Easter Island, and Hawaii...just sayin'...

MY SYNOPSIS:
When Kate and Jen Quintal decide to return to Pitcairn Island, home of their ancestors, their goal is to do their jobs and open a successful hotel. They are prepared for some hardships, knowing that this is one of the most remote, hard to reach places they've ever been. Not only will they have to plan and task with no mistake

"I came all the way to Pitcairn to do a job, to come back to find out a little about my heritage. I never thought I'd find... She paused. What have I found? Love?"

Hoteliers and sisters, Kate and Jen Quintal are opening up a new hotel on Pitcairn Island that could make or break the island. Fortunately, opening night is a huge success, forecasting a victorious future. When Kate falls in love with ruggedly handsome "yeti man" Bryce, she thinks she has it all. But unfortunately, someone from Bryce's

I was given this book by the Author, Nadine Christian for an honest review and so I shall deliver.

The Review:

I have to confess, I was able to put this book down quite a bit in the beginning. I'm not sure why, but I think it was just me. I told my husband, the writing is perfect, no misspells, nothing annoying, everything was honestly written the way it should be. But I felt it lacked energy in the beginning. It might have been me and probably was. I was coming off an exhausting 2 day vacation, s

After reading this authors first book I've waited with baited breath for her second release. Being one of the first to receive this book Nadine certainly didn't let me down with this little gem.
I totally loved this book. Had a brilliant storyline & the characters were so likeable ( well most if them lol). I loved how Nadine brought her Pitcarn Island to life for us. I found the ways of the island so interesting.

I read this book sitting in a field at a classic car show. Wasn't til I had fin

An engaging love story set on a beautiful island in the Pacific. Kate and Bryce make for a lovely couple, and while she was a good character, Bryce really was great.

Read full review in the November 2013 issue of InD’tale Magazine.

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Initial Reaction...

Quintal's Return was a really enjoyable read. I wasn't blown away, but I also wouldn't hesitate to pick up the next book in the Bounty's Retreat series, if the opportunity presented itself.
The Characters...

Quintal's Return  really focuses in on the eldest of the Qunital sisters - Kate - and her love interest, a native of Pit

The sisters, Kate and Jen Quintal are relocating to their parent's home of Pitcairn Island, where they are running the hotel that will make or break Pitcairn's tourism trade. The small community of Pitcainers are depending on them to do a good job, and nothing else counts.
Until romance and revenge complicates matters.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book - would it be a mystery, with a little romance thrown in, or vice versa. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was

I jumped into this book fresh from reading Remembering Love, which I loved, by the way. Ms. Christian has a certain talent to bring her characters to realistic proportions. In Remembering Love we met some Islanders and Jack and Holly’s story was told. I was a wee bit disappointed that they did not make an appearance as friends or just plain islanders. I think the two books should be grouped as the same series. With that said, there is a Jack in this story. And boy is he different than the Jack I ...more

I was offered this book in exchange for an honest review by Nadine, and was so glad that she asked me!

This story is about 2 sisters (Kate/Heroine and Jen) who run/manage hotels, and are now assigned to run the brand new hotel 'The Bounty's Retreat' on the beautiful Isle of Pitcairn. Coincidentally their parents lived on the island but left before they were born. It starts off with them traveling to Pitcairn on boat, but when they arrive near the island they actually transfer to another boat that

Book Lovers Never Go to Bed Alone
Part romance, part mystery, Quintal's Return by Nadine Christian takes us to the tropical paradise of Pitcairn Island. Two sisters are hired to run a luxury hotel on the island. Kate quickly finds herself entangled in a romantic relationship with the complicated (and very confirmed bachelor) Bryce. He's dashing, handsome, and jealousy flares as outsiders and natives clash.

Christian's writing is wonderfully descriptive. I've never been to the tropics of the South Pacific, but I got lost in the so

When Kate Quintal and her sister Jen return to Pitcairn Island to take over the running of a new luxury hotel, they are little prepared for the events which unfold. All is not well in this corner of paradise, and the added complication of a promising romance with a handsome islander only makes life even more difficult for Kate.

I was drawn into Kate and Jen’s story from the beginning. The author writes with great conviction and makes both the characters and the delicious backdrop of Pitcairn come

This story reeks of the love this author has for Pitcairn Island, her island. You can't help but be drawn in to the love, comedy, mystery and community of Pitcairn. So much history in such a small place and so well described. I can't wait for Book 2 of the Bounty's Retreat Series.

Two sisters, Kate and Jen, have been dispatched from New Zealand to Pitcairn Island to manage a luxury hotel. Kate falls in love with Bryan after a rocky start transferring her from the yacht to the Longboat, for the tr

I promised to read this book when it was an ARC. Nadine knows I get a lot of books offered my way as a reader/reviewer but she also knows I'm honest and trustworthy to read it as most of my authors do. Which is lovely because I can relax, read and enjoy what I'm reading.
I really enjyd Nadine's first book. It slipped in high on my personal journey of my reading matter this year.
So from her first book I knew I'm MHO that she had a talent and could write.

Remembering Love by Nadine Christine was such a wonderful read that left me almost speechless. What fascinated me towards reading this novel was the attractive title and I must say the story also didn't disappoint me.


The story plot revolves around Holly, an orphan, who lives with her foster parents Bill and Tina. Like all the orphaned children she wants to know who her real parents are. Luckily, after her foster's parents death, she finds a box in which she finds a family photo of her own family
