REVIEW: Island Charm by Audrey Wick

Posted June 20th, 2021 by in Blog, Contemporary Romance, HJ Recommends, Review / 0 comments


Island Charm by Audrey Wick truly is a charming story. The author takes you through all the wonderful things that make Key West a special place. I could almost taste the Key Lime pie and feel the ocean breeze. Having never been to Key West, I think of it as tourist place with the famous Ernest Hemingway home and the descendants of his polydactyl cats. Thanks to this novel, I saw so much more from both a tourist’s point of view and the year round residents.

Anna Worthington gets tricked into going on her twin sister Brie’s honeymoon after Brie was left at the altar. Humor is woven in as Anna discovers she has ended up with her sister’s honeymoon wardrobe. Despite that, Anna decides she will do her sister’s Top Five bucket list of for her.

This leads Anna to Gunnar Lockhart, who work for the Chamber of Commerce in promoting all the island’s special sites and charm. I liked that Gunnar was such a caring person. Not only was he willing to help Anna complete her list, but he has been involved for some time in helping an elderly friend with dementia. It is hard for a relative to deal with such a situation, but to see a friend go all out like that is amazing.

Anna is a lovely person, too. She is so close to her twin in so many ways and willing to sacrifice to help her heal. Anna shows that when we give we are often more blessed that the receiver, She grows in confidence along the way.

Island Charm is perfect for those who love a sweet romance that can be read anytime, but would make a perfect “beach read”. I would love to read more by this author.

When Anna Worthington’s twin sister gets jilted by her fiancé, Anna steps in with a plan for a girls’ Key West getaway instead of a honeymoon trip. Yet when her twin has her own crisis of commitment and doesn’t board the plane, Anna finds herself on a romantic getaway that she’s forced to navigate alone.

Gunnar Lockhart, whose specialty is island tourism, is the perfect match for helping Anna complete her vacation bucket list, but time together forges a connection more personal than either anticipate. As they make island memories, Anna has to untangle her mixed emotions. Are her feelings toward Gunnar real? Or like her sister’s wedding day, has this connection been doomed from the start?
