A Deeper Love: Year One (Suamalie Islands Book 9)

By Heidi Gray McGill


What was that movie line about relationships built on intense experiences? Oh, yeah. They never work.

I get paid to do my dream job, usually by wealthy men who thrive on adventure. But when their adrenaline rush is gone and vacation is over, I’m still here, on a tropical island, with people who mostly leave me alone. And I like it that way.

Except for this guy. Seriously, Dan is the last man I want to get involved with. If he got Decompression Illness, the doctors would likely call it Mercedes Bends. He’s privileged and entitled and would never leave his city life behind for the challenges of living on a remote island. Which is a total relief, I’m telling you.

Don’t get me wrong—he’s prime shark bait, but I’m not ready to fall deeply in love with someone who won’t stay. There’s no such thing as going “too deep” where spiritual things are concerned. But I’ll stay at the surface and snorkel rather than dive into the depths when it comes to relationships.

Take a trip to the Suamalie Islands where palm trees sway, the sand and sea pulse with life, and the people will steal your heart.

Book Takeaway:

When we discover God’s plan for our lives and live it, we will be surprised by how little we need and how much we want to give.

Why the author wrote this book:

My husband and I are scuba divers and have spent time on remote islands away from the tourist areas. My research mainly was from personal experience, although I enjoyed researching and learning about American Samoa, for which we modeled the fictional Suamalie Islands. Because the Suamalie Islands series is a multi-author project, we collaborated in our research and shared what we learned, making the process fun and much broader than I could have done on my own.
