The perfect book for the season, On a Coastal Breeze takes readers back to Three Sisters Island for another visit with the Grayson family and friends. Maddie has finally opened her own counseling business and should be celebrating her success but who should show up literally out-of-the-blue than her childhood nemesis Ricky O’Shea – and he just happens to be her new pastor! While the focus is on Maddie, other favorite characters from the previous novel make their appearance in this installment for another few hours of reading enjoyment. Oldest sister Cam is so busy attempting to arrange an alternative energy source for the island’s undependable electricity that she keeps putting off setting a date for her wedding to Seth. Youngest sister Blaine is home from culinary school but it is obvious something is amiss with her.
It was fun to observe the family dynamics of the Grayson family although there were times their interactions hit just a little close to home. I loved how Maddie was a sounding board for her sisters and was able to offer them valuable advice but had difficulty accepting their input into her own situation. Ricky was a great character. I enjoyed seeing him through Maddie’s memories of him and the person he had become. The plot moved along at a good pace with some misunderstandings, second chances, and a surprise or two.
I thoroughly enjoyed On a Coastal Breeze and the previous book of the series. I recommend it but also suggest that the series be read in order to gain the most understanding and enjoyment from it.

For Madison Grayson, life is good. Newly licensed as a marriage and family therapist, she can’t wait to start her practice. Despite the unfortunate shortage of eligible bachelors on the island–they’re all too young, too old, or too weird–Maddie feels like she’s finally found her sweet spot. Not even one panic attack in the last year. Not one.
And then Ricky O’Shea drops in. Literally. Floating down from the pure blue sky, the one man in the world she hoped never to see again–the one who’d been her archnemesis from kindergarten through her senior dance–parachutes into town, landing on Boon Dock, canopy draping behind him like a superhero. Ricky O’Shea. Now Pastor Rick, the new minister on Three Sisters Island.
Time to panic.
With wit and a bit of whimsy, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Three Sisters Island where family, forgiveness, and a second chance at love await.
