Product Description

Book 1: Maid for Love
Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she's knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy's Resort Hotel by Gansett's "favorite son," Mac McCarthy. He's back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be "maid" for love.

Book 2: Fool for Love
Joe Cantrell, owner of the Gansett Island Ferry Company, has been in love with Janey McCarthy for as long as he can remember. At the same time, Janey has been dating or engaged to doctor-in-training David Lawrence. When things go horribly wrong between David and Janey, she calls her "fifth brother" Joe, one of the few people in her close circle who lives on the mainland. Janey decides a few days with Joe is just what she needs before she goes home to the island to face her parents and family with the news of her broken engagement. It was bad enough for Joe loving Janey from afar, but having her in his house is pure torture. Will he take advantage of this opportunity to show her what they could have together? And what will Joe's best friend and Janey's protective older brother Mac have to say about it?

Book 3: Ready for Love
For four of the best summers of his young life, Luke Harris was in love with Sydney Donovan, a wealthy seasonal visitor to Gansett Island. Then Sydney went off to college and never came back. She married another man and had two children while Luke remained on the island, working at McCarthy's Gansett Marina and wondering what had gone wrong between him and the only woman he ever loved. Fifteen months after Sydney suffers the tragic loss of her husband and children, she's returned to Gansett to figure out what's next, and that may very well be a rekindled love affair with the one man from her past she's never forgotten. But is she ready for a second chance at love?

The story picks up with Book 4, Falling for Love, with eight other Gansett Island stories available in the series and more to come from the island!

"With the McCarthy's of Gansett Island, Marie Force makes you believe in the power of true love and happily ever after. Over and over again." Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author of the Serendipity series.

3.0 out of 5 stars She is a broken record. 29 January 2014
By bmgoody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read quite a few of Force's books. The first couple in a series are likable. I can connect with the characters. Then, it just gets repetitive. Too much sex and in her quest to write new sex positions, she just gets repulsive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 2 December 2013
By Jennifer Hope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This boxed set got me started reading Marie Force's books. I really enjoy this author. I went on to read the rest of the McCarthys of Gansett Island books as well. This series reminds me of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. It is easy to become invested in the people, places and community these books bring to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great box series 30 December 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This box has 3 great love stories. The first is Mac and maddie' s story in maid for love. Their story was my hook must say. The way Mac went after maddie and didn't go was amazing. He truly showed how much maddie meant to him. Even when maddie was being unreasonable. Mac is a keeper that hunk of a man.

The next story is Janey and Joe's story. Joe has been in love with Janey since high school but Janey' s been in love with someone else which she was to marry after 13 years of being together. David was a resident ( MD) in Boston. However, he got caught in bed with another woman when Janey went to surprise him on their 13th anniversary. She calls Joe when her car breaks down in the highway. Joe comes running because of his secret love for her. Janey hurt by David's betrayal hooks up with Joe and off they go. Yelling matches, jealousy, begging, and tears, lots of it gets into the mix.

The last story is Luke and Sydney. Luke has also, been in love with Sydney since they were kids'. They dated and though it was not said in the book it seems they lost their virginity to each other. However, Sydney's parents did not approve Luke. Eventually, syd' s parents for what they wanted and she married someone else and has a life with him until tragedy strikes, when a drunk driver kills her husband and 2 kids. Now syd is back in the island trying to move forward in life and whose their watching her through the shrubs but Luke. Together they rekindled their love which apparently never went away. Trust and fear of history repeating itself is the main theme of this story.

I gave it a 5 star because it was awesome. Like I said Mac and maddie' s story hooked me and the rest just followed. You get to see how everyone's lives continue as the story develops and adds more. The love scenes are catching and the men are men not saps. They know what they want and what they need to do to get their women. The women are also, strong individuals not push overs which I like. Love the people of this island. The box set idea is amazing. I get to read the stories without having to stop since they flow so well. It would be great if they were to put other parts to this series in box set too. I would so totally buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect holiday present to go with a new Kindle Paperwhite 28 October 2013
By Halley Suitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I've read all the books in the McCarthys of Gansett Island series and loved them, so as I've been browsing to see what to give my sister for the holidays -- and she MUST have the new Paperwhite -- this collection of the first three books, looks like the perfect thing to send along with the new Kindle. If you think it's too early to do your holiday shopping, think again!
