Sure, the pretty redhead is happy running her late father’s Turtle Island ferry business, but everyone in the world is finding love except her. Stuck on the wrong side of thirty, she’s trying to accept singlehood by building a dr ...more

4 Stars

This was a cute read about the last of the 3 friends on Turtle Island finding her HEA. This is about Ginger and her long time friend, Carter. She crushed on him hard as kids without him knowing and now as he returns to the island, he is a bitter shell of the boy he used to be. Ginger and Carter work together to heal wounds along with a casual fling...but will love find them?

What happens when forever friends lose track of one another? After living on the same island, living next door to one another, going to school with one another, being playmates and classmates, nursed each other through bad dates and lost count of just how many sunrises you’ve seen together, how could that be?
Well, when it came time for Ginger Atkinson and Carter Ridley to go off to college that is exactly what did happen. Ginger had dreams of being a teacher and Carter a famous writer. But thi

DNF @ 56%, page 162.. This was a free read and listen so I'm glad I didn't spend money on either one.

I’m not sure about this book. At 52% I was wondering if anything was really going to happen. Carter came home to see about his pregnant sister and sees Ginger after a number of years, after being her best friend when they were little and all the way up to their teens. Now he’s a grumpy and angry man because he’s divorced and Ginger is trying to help him get over his feelings and try to be happy a

I’ve been a fan of Kim Law’s for quite some time now. When I received a request to read this book in exchange for an honest review, I eagerly accepted. I have loved her Turtle Island Novel series, and On the Rocks is an outstanding addition to this amazing series. Since the book description captures the essence of this book, I am not going to do a recap of the story.

On the Rocks grabbed me from the first page, and I could not stop reading this book. The pacing is fantastic, and Ms

I received an Arc for an honest review.

Ginger is not a girly girl she is running a bat charter business on the island and is still single, while her friends are all married now. This is a tough time for her and she is trying to make the next step in life.
Carter is divorced after a huge discovery, and he was coerced by his parents to come back to Turtle Island to help his sister. He is not in a good place in his life.

This is a light story about two people who were friends forever and lost touch

I absolutely fell in love with Carter and Ginger and Turtle Island! I love a book that I can completely immerse myself in and forget everyday life for just a little while, and On the Rocks did just that!

I loved Carter and Ginger’s story. I am a sucker for a good friends to lovers story, and this one has to be one of my favorites. Both Carter and Ginger grew up on the island and were friends growing up. Carter left with dreams of what his life would be. Ginger has made her life on Turtle Island t

I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

If you like a book that contains great characters, its heartfelt, childhood friendships, low self esteem & trust issues, its romantic and has plenty of humour - then this is definitely a book for you.

This story revolves around Ginger - she returned home after the death of her father to run his boat business and she loves it. The only downside for her is that she can never seem to find love and she feels inadequate as a woman.

Kim Law continues her Turtle Island series with a story of love and second chances. This third installment, On The Rocks, will let you experience the character’s emotions as if they were your own. Ms. Law did an awesome job bring an equal amount of humor, heartfelt scenes and even added a little more heat than usual.

This is the third book in this series by Law and while I enjoyed getting to know these characters all over again I did feel like something was missing from this story.

Ginger moved back home to take care of her fathers business after he passed but the problem is that she can't find a decent date. While everyone is falling in love, having weddings and babies she is beginning to feel like something is wrong with her until her old friend Carter returns.

Carter is only supposed to be returning t

I received a free advanced copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I have read and loved all of Kim Law's books. This story of Ginger and Carter's friendship, distance then finally that love connection is my favorite so far. The characters are relatable and easy to root for. I read this in one night because I could not stop reading. I loved it that much. I am recommending it to my Friends and if you read this review I recommend it to you. Plus all of Kim's other books as well. ...more

I hadn't read the earlier books and sometimes you can feel a little lost at the beginning of book in a series, as characters are glossed over somewhat. This was not the case with this book, each character coming to life under the skilful writing of Kim Law. I enjoyed the story very much and shall look for other books by Law. ...more

I really enjoyed this book, with its cheerful, tomboy heroine and grumpy, secretive author hero. It’s sweet and fun with the right touch of heat, romance and heartache, all wrapped up with some beautiful sunsets and a perfect-sounding house.

Ginger is great. She’s a woman who had all her life plans upended when her father died, but discovered that actually she really loves running the boat business – even if she does end up smelling of fish more days than not. She’s upbeat and friendly, with a fe

I had the opportunity to read and review Montana Cherries for this author and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I was thrilled when another opportunity presented itself. I enjoyed the depth and backstories of the previous book and this one did not disappoint either. This was my first book to read in her Turtle Island series, but that took nothing away from this story besides the need to go back and catch up on the missed love stories I got to catch a glimpse of throughout this story.

4.5 Stars - This was the first book I read in the Turtle Island series, and it can certainly be read as a standalone. I didn’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the two prior books.

This book is sort of a falling in love with the boy next door, friends-to-lovers kind of book.

Ginger has watched her two best friends meet the men of their dreams, go off, get married, and start their families. Ginger wants that life too and is beginning to wonder if it will ever happen for her. While she has

So worth the wait! It feels like such a long time since the last Turtle Island novel was released, and I'm so glad to be back visiting with these characters on this little island. We were introduced to Ginger Atkinson in the previous Turtle Island novels Ex on the Beach and Hot Buttered Yum. She is one of the three best friends that this series is centered around, and finally it is Ginger's turn to find her man. She's always been a bit of a tomboy and has been running her father's boating compan ...more

I was provided an ARC by the author for an honest review.

Kim Law continues the Turtle Island series with this emotional read. Her writing style is amazing. It’s the kind of book you hate to put down but sometimes have to so you can get some sleep and function the next day!

There is a time gap between this book and the last but any relevant event is explained and flows well. I can’t wait for the next one and this one is just released!
