Fifteen years after she left Prince Edward Island, Natalie O'Ryan had no plans to return. But when her fiancé, music producer Russell Jacobs, books their wedding in her hometown and schedules a summer at Rose's Red Door Inn, she sets out to put the finishing touches on the perfect wedding. But she can't possibly prepare for a run-in with Justin Kane--the best friend she left behind all those years ago after promising to stay.

Justin's never forgotten Natalie or the music career he always dreamed of pursuing. He'd been prepared to follow her off the island until his dad died and he was left to run the family dairy farm. He's done the best he can with the life that was thrust upon him--but with Natalie back in the picture, he begins to realize just how much joy he's been missing.

After Natalie's reception venue falls through, she must scramble to find an alternative, and the only option seems to be a barn on Justin's property. As they work together to get the dilapidated building ready for the party, Natalie and Justin discover the groundwork for forgiveness--and that there may be more than an old friendship between them.

As the conclusion to a beloved series, Prince Edward Island Dreams, On Love's Gentle Shores by Liz Johnson continued the sweet and picturesque scenery one can easily visualize through the words. I really enjoyed Where Two Hearts Meet, paving way to an anticipation for the other books in the series. The gentle yet tension towards love seems to fit harmoniously with the setting and the characters.

Unfortunately, the slow start in On Love's Gentle Shores did not help in getting me connected with the characters. However, once we hit the mid point, it gets better and better, with a few surprises leading to the finale that warrants readers to stride through.  As disconnected I was with both Justin and Natalie, I still felt their connection towards each other, and how well crafted this story is. The author's words are poetic at times to entice readers, and I love that about it. In all, a great story and a great good-bye.
