Book Review: Some Kind of Wonderful, by Sarah Morgan

Fall in love with the all new Puffin Island series from Sarah Morgan, the bestselling author who brought you Sleigh Bells in the Snow!


Her whole life, Puffin Islander Brittany Forrest has dreamed of adventure. And at the age of eighteen, she thought she’d found it in bad boy Zachary Flynn. But after just ten tempestuous, smouldering days, their whirlwind marriage went up in smoke, and Brittany resolved to put him out of her mind forever.

Zach knows he let Brittany down, but being back on Puffin Island and seeing Brittany again stirs up long-buried emotions. This daredevil pilot has never felt worthy of her, yet he can’t stay away—even when he knows the chemistry between them will only complicate his life.

As long, hot summer days on the beach dissolve into sultry, starry nights, Brittany and Zach find that the sparks between them are more powerful than ever. Could it be that the second time around, their dreams of a happy-ever-after will finally come true?


Having read and loved First Time in Forever, the first of the Puffin Island trilogy, I was super excited for Some Kind of Wonderful to be released. Huge thanks to Mills & Boon for providing me with a review copy via NetGalley.

We were introduced to Brittany in First Time in Forever, which was about her best friend, Emily. As much as I’d recommend reading the trilogy in order, this would read perfectly well as a stand alone if you wanted it to (but you’d be missing out!).

What I love about these books, is that while they are romances – and wonderful romances at that – they are also filled with friendship, and family, and community, and so much more than just a love story.

When Brittany returns to Puffin Island and discovers her ex-husband is now living there again, her emotions go into overdrive. Zach broke her heart when they were young and walked out of their marriage ten days in, but she’s pulled herself together and made a great life for herself since. What she hadn’t expected, but can’t deny, is that the chemistry between them is still stronger than anything she’s ever encountered since.

But Zach’s demons from his childhood are still as prevalent today, so can they ever hope to trust one another and build a new future together?

I absolutely loved following Zach and Brittany’s story, it was fun, sweet, sexy and moving, and impossible not to kept swept away with. Sarah really kept you guessing as to how this story would turn out, right until the end.

I’m now even more excited for the third book to be released in this gorgeous series! This is a perfect summer read.
