Book Review: Finding Love on Sunshine Island by Georgina Troy

A big welcome to Georgina Troy who is here with the blog tour for her new novel, Finding Love on Sunshine Island.

Welcome to the Sunshine Island – where the beaches are golden, the lifestyle is perfect and anything is possible.

Piper Le Brocq is happily single after the disastrous ending of her engagement eighteen months before. The only man in her life is Jax, her best friend and cousin, who spends his life teaching locals how to forage and taking tourists on boat trips around the island. Her days are filled with helping out at her mother’s guest house and selling her glass mosaics at The Cabbage Patch emporium in Trinity.

Piper loves living on the Sunshine Island, where the neighbours look out for each other and visitors are welcome. So, when handsome guest Alex Cooper arrives at the guest house to check up on his grandfather, she welcomes him to the sunny island. And when he needs help after his grandfather is injured, she’s quick to get involved.

Yet, the more she gets to know Alex the more mysterious he seems, and Alex isn’t the only one keeping secrets from her.


After a horrible breakup, Piper is happily single, helping her mother at the family guest house on Jersey and creating glass mosaics for sale.

When Alex Cooper arrives to see his grandfather, she welcomes him and even helps him out when there’s an accident. However, is love about to catch her unawares?

I adore the fact that Piper refers to Jersey as the ‘sunshine island.’ I’ve never been there but this, as well as the vivid descriptions in the novel, meant that I could really imagine myself there, amongst these wonderfully well written characters.

It isn’t hard to like Piper. She’s had a lot happen but she has picked herself up and has created her own business. I wanted things to be OK for her.

Alex adds mystery to the story. He’s lovely and charming but he is holding something back. I was intrigued to know what.

The other supporting characters were great. Helen and Margery and especially Jax. I loved the relationship between him and Piper. It felt very genuine.

The plot moved along well and I didn’t want to stop reading, wanting to know what Alex was hiding, whether Piper was OK and whether there was a resolution between two other characters.

I don’t really want to give anything more away.

Finding Love on Sunshine Island is a warm, gentle charming novel full of lovely characters and is like getting a big hug.

It showcases how important things like love, friendship and family are. It’s a perfect escape from reality for a while.

I am really hoping it’s not the last we see of these characters. As Piper loves Christmas…a festive catch up with them perhaps? Pretty please?

Thank you to Boldwood Books and Rachel’s Random Resources for the review copy in exchange for an honest review.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
