Island Smile is the exciting second instalment in the Stranded in Paradise trilogy by Lindsay Marie Miller. It’s a brilliant action adventure/ historical romance- with intrigue, suspense, danger, drama, and angst. I loved the first book and couldn’t wait to continue the story. I did have fairly high expectations and I am so happy that I needn’t have worried, because Ms. Miller certainly didn’t disappoint with this story. It swept me into the pages and kept me avidly reading from beginning

Island Smile: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise Book 2) by Lindsay Marie Miller is the second book in her Stranded in Paradise series. I highly suggest that you read the first book before this one as it provides information that you will need to enrich your enjoyment of this book. This author's writing skills are such that she can make you feel as if you are right there with the characters. Her story is easy flowing and engaging. It took me on an emotional roller coaster ride tha ...more

This is the second book in the series, and I loved it just as much as the first book.

Henry and Elaine are married with a new baby and living in New York. Everything should be perfect now, except danger has followed them.

This book has all the elements - suspense, mystery, angst, romance - everything you could hope for. Fantastic read.

“Promise me that you will not leave. Promise me that you will wait for me.”

Island Smile is the second installment in Lindsay Marie Miller’s Stranded in Paradise trilogy. I have read that the books can be read as standalones, but I promise, you will want to read the books in order and all of them in order to fully understand everything that is taking place. Just writing this review will be a bit of a spoiler of where book one left us.

Island Smile by Lindsay Marie Miller is the thrilling second book in the Stranded in Paradise trilogy. This is most definitely not a standalone novel and to get the full picture you really need to read book one before this one. We are once again transported back to the 1900’s and into the lives of Henry and Elaine.

When they escaped from the island they thought their adventure was over. Settling into a home in on the outskirts of New York Henry and Elaine thought that they would be able to live a

Island Smile by Lindsay Marie Miller is the second book in her Stranded in Paradise series and let me just say what a phenomenal follow up. Island Smile picks up right where Jungle Eyes leaves off, with Henry Rochester as he is setting off on an expedition. But a violent storm takes him off course, running him straight into Elaine Carmichael’s castaway island. Having been casted away on this island, there is a part of her that is happy for company but another part that has more despair that they ...more

Book 2 in the Stranded in Paradise series is full of surprises! Some good and some not so much! Lindsay Marie Miller can write a story that draws a reader right in. Sometimes a reader wants to be the main character but I am reserving that idea for the happily ever after that is sure to come…right? Please.

The ending of Island Smile leaves everyone, characters and readers alike, wondering what is going to happen! Who will survive the island?! HOW will they survive?! Does anyone ever really die on

Island Smile, book two in Lindsay Marie Miller’s Stranded in Paradise series, starts right where the first one finished. Henry and Elaine are welcoming the birth of their baby girl Lillian, when suddenly an old enemy emerges. Turns out being stabbed in the heart can’t kill you (please don’t try at home) and you can rise from the dead to seek revenge.
I found it very difficult to believe a lot of things throughout the course of this book. It never really explains how Judas comes back from the dead

Island Smile is the second book in the Stranded in Paradise series by Lindsay Marie Miller. The first one must be read to be able to follow what happens with Henry and Elaine.

When Lilly arrives, they head over to Henry's parents house to introduce young Lilly to her grandparents and aunt Louisa. What they find when they get there is their worst fear.

I give Island Smile: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise Book 2) by Lindsay Marie Miller, 4 stars.

A wonderful action romance story! I have read this author before and yet again she does not fail to disappoint by throwing us into the action fairly early on in the book. There are several romance/relationships actually going on, but the main one revolves around the wonderful characters of Henry and Elaine. They are madly in love with each other and they will be forced to show just how

It’s the year 1900, and Henry and Elaine have settled into their new life in New York society, happy with the arrival of their baby girl, Lilly. Things appear ideal until a danger, in the form of Judas, they thought was in their past, rears its ugly head with a vengeance. When Henry’s younger sister, Louisa, and Elaine are caught up in the danger, Henry has no choice but to return to the island to fight for his family’s safety.

Just when you thought it was safe to move on boom. This is the second book in the stranded in paradise trilogy and man was it just as good as the first! I just couldn't put the book down. I was hooked from page one.

I was so glad to see how things progressed for Elaine and Henry. The author made the book just flow from the first and brought new and exciting twists to this second book. I was on my seats edge to find out what was gonna happen next.

Do not read this until you read Jungle Eyes (first book in the series) as Island Smile builds off it.

I have questions... So many questions. I will not put them in my review because I don't want to spoil the story for anyone. It really is an action adventure romance as the title suggests.

This book has twists and turns and characters who are not as they appear. The writing style of the author brings great visualization to the story and kept me at the edge of my seat. I did skim a bit as the story

Book two in series picks up exactly where book one ended. The story telling skills of this author are wonderful and pulled me into the plot. Angst, subterfuge, suspense, this series is full of these emotions, leading up and down, roller coaster paced e patience of a read. I recommend reading book one first, you need the background details. Characters are well developed, layered. Book three should be terrific.

Once again i was pulled in right from the get go and took on a amazing journey one i was sad to reach the end of and desperately left wanting more. As i was reading i was able to visualise myself there which is down to the way it was written it's such a amazing feeling to be able to feel like your inside the book. There are times in this novel that you sitting the edge off your seat wondering what will unfold, the story is such a page turner highly recommended!!

Mystery, Suspense, Intrigue and Romance!

The follow up to book one pulls you in and grabs you from the very beginning and does not let go. I could not put this one down, nor did I want to. There are twists and turns all along the way. As soon you as think you know which the author is going to take you, she throws another twist in and goes down a totally different path!

I can not wait to get my hands on book 3!!!
