Description

City girl Janine Wilson’s career is taking off but the same can’t be said about her love life. No matter—as manager of the Inn at Blue Moon Bay, Janine’s in charge of throwing a huge party to celebrate the Inn’s recent expansion and doesn’t have time for distractions. Unfortunately, two big ones suddenly show up: her thrill-seeking incompatible ex, Cody, who refuses to accept their breakup, and Cody’s handsome and charming best friend, Texas cowboy Jackson Davis.

Reluctantly, Janine agrees to meet Cody for one last dinner because Cody says he has a huge business opportunity for the Inn. But when Cody takes her on a boat ride to show her his great idea, Jackson is at the helm. Janine has been trying to resist her attraction to Jackson because they have no common interests, not to mention he’s her ex’s best friend. Once they stop on a deserted island, though, Janine doesn’t expect the sparks that fly between them, the spontaneous kiss they share, or what Cody does after witnessing said kiss.

Janine was convinced she needed a sophisticated man who shared the same interests as her. Now that she’s been stranded on a deserted island with Jackson, will she discover he’s everything she never knew she really wanted?

Advance Praise

Janine is running an inn at Blue Moon Bay. Her ex, Cody, stops by to say he has an idea to get more customers into her inn. When she meets him, he takes her to a boat, captained by his friend Jackson, who Janine has liked for a long time. At a deserted island, Cody sees Janine kissing Jackson and leaves them stranded.

The characters are terrific, with plenty of banter and feelings that come out. The storyline has great twists and surprises, including the way Jackson acts on the island. Loved the way family came back together. This story had me hooked from the beginning and I can not wait to read more about this group and locale. --Judy Gittleson Hendrickson, 5 star Goodreads Review

"I love how in recent books Janine and Jackson were getting close but not going over the line because of her relationship with Cody. Cody was different than Janine and didn't take her needs into account. She ended up kissing Jackson and being stranded with him on a remote island. They ended up falling in love. I love how Janine ended up making up with her family and figuring out that she was not the disappointment to them that she thought she was. Susan Hatler did a good job of portraying the different emotions when it comes to family." --Kimberly Davis, 5 Star Amazon Review

I have read the three previous Blue Moon Bay by Hatler and this series is the absolute best! I wished I could have read the 5th book The Christmas Cabin but it happens. I'm a series junkie LoL I could go on and on here. To keep things short So The Oopsie Island WoW! Where to start. This book was charming, enticing. 😍 Hatlers writing is freaking Fab like no other words for it. She can keep you tuned into the pages and before you know it you're half way though the book! Her characters in this series are incredible. Janine and Jackson. Loved them! She is working hard at the Inn when her ex and his friend Jackson show up. She has an attraction to Jackson which complicates things and has for awhile now. I love the small-town, charming feel. It really brings the book to life! Just read this brilliant, lovely, wonderful book! Also this can read as a standalone book! I personally have to read books in order! 😊 So now my little message to Hatco Publishing PLEASE bring the other books to NetGalley! 😘😂 The Christmas Cabin which is before this novel And the two after this one. LoL The Wedding Boutique and The Holiday Shoppe..... Please! Please! Ill love you forever!

Janine is running Inn on Moon Bay and is finalising renovations. She hopes it works as her stepmother thinks she can't stick to any job. She's having problems with some of the work when along comes Jackson who changes her life

I really enjoyed reading this book. Janine feels like she is almost there in proving to her stepmother that she has made something of her life, when she encounters problems with the hotel refurb, which throughout the story she deals with efficiently. Along side this she has to deal with an ex who won’t go away, and then she ends up marooned on an island with the man she has a crush on Jackson. He comes into his own teaching our city girl who has never even been camping how to cope. Once back into civilisation, he has to go back to Texan to help his sister in law on the ranch so she lets him go, both decide they want to be together and we have a lovely sweet HEA.

The Oopsie Island by Susan Hatler Another book in The Blue Moon Bay series. Although you can also read as stand alone books. This one is about Janine the General Manager of the Blue Moon Bay Inn. She is having a few trials and difficulties during renovations of an old wing of the building and time is running close to the opening . She is a great success at her job having moved from the City to Blue Moon Bay but her love life is anything but successful. She wants what her friends have. Yet another lovely story by Susan. I really enjoyed the characters - Janines journey to find love and dealing with the unexpected trials life is bring her. Light hearted enjoyable read on a lazy day.

I loved this story and was really worried Janine would get back with Cody, but thank goodness for Jackson being the man who she fell in love with. I must find more of these books to catch up with them, was it really a happy ending? Well written & worth the read, thank you NetGalley for letting me review this lovely book.

Thank you NetGalley, Susan Hatler and Hatco Publishing for the copy of The Oopsie Island. This is my personal review. Blue Moon Bay is like being home with friends and family every time I read one the books from this series. Janine and Jackson are so perfect together. I loved every word in this book. The chemistry between them crackles. Pick up the books in this series you will be so glad you did!
