5 Star Review of Blackout After Dark (Gansett Island #23) by Marie Force

This was a sweet, funny and wonderful book of love. It gave us a chance to catch up with all the couples we have come to love so much on Gansett Island. It is always great to read a new story about Gansett Island, it’s like coming home to your family as you get to catch up with what is going on in all their lives.  

This book as with others in the series was an extremely well written, sweet, sexy and romantic book. A fantastic addition to the series and the narration by Stella Hunter added to my listening pleasure. Although, having said that I do think that a male narrator for the men would really have enhanced the story, but then that is just my opinion.

Emotional

Maire never fails me. I love love love this book. I truly feel like I'm visiting family while listening to her words. She is an amazing author and this series keep me wanting more. I hope to get to know more about the new lighthouse keepers. I hope their marriage survives and they move to have more children (as if Gansett needs more children lol). I look forward to hearing how Mac and the other guys do after the snip snip (this is so funny) and to catch up on how all the babies are doing. I can't wait until the next book. Congrats Marie on a job well done.

Fun visit to Gansett

A whirlwind visit with all the Gansett folks of the past and the introduction of several new cast members. This isn't your typical Gansett book as there is no one couple or person it concentrates on. Instead it ties up some loose ends for some couples and gives us a little bit of excitement with baby news.
The narration was mediocre. Not alot of voice inflection changes between characters even within a small group of the gang. I am still partial to the original narrator of this series

Going Home

What can I say about this book that I haven’t said about all of the others. I have been a fan of Marie Force since the beginning. I’ve read all of her books and with every one they just get better. I love all of the series in their own way, but with the Gansett series in particular I always feel like I’m going home. Blackout After Dark was special in many ways. We got to get a glimpse of all our favorites and we got to be introduced to some new characters that I’m sure will become just like family in books to come. Marie has a way of pulling you in and immersing you into the story and then of course there is the holy $&@! moment that she throws in ever so effortlessly to give us the wtf pause that we’ve come to know and love. I look forward to many more Gansett books and can’t wait to go home again.

Fantastic book

What a wonderful way to catch up with all the characters that we've met on Gansett Island. We see all of the McCarthy family and all of their friends plus meet new people who have moved to the Island. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this book. I'm certainly looking forward to all of the books to come! Marie Force has outdone herself on this book. Stella Hunter is a wonderful narrator who brings all the characters to life.

A great Island catch up

Loved hearing from everyone on the Island. And some new characters thrown in. Always a good story.
I liked the new narrator, although her male voices were not great. And I think it might be the audio editing issue, but there wasn’t even a beat between scene changes or chapters. This was quite off putting
