The only thing missing for me was that I couldn’t actually be on Guernsey to read it – that would have been just perfect. A great summer read, a touch of romance and two m [...]

    9. The third novel in Anne Allen's Guernsey series delivers what her fans have come to expect: the unraveling of a family secret, budding romance, and breathtaking scenery.

I've also come to love the way the author includes food in her novels. It's apparent she has a knack for living the good life. The conflict of wh [...]

    14. not page turning, wouldn't characterize it as a mystery though there are questions posed and answered in the plot it didn't take much to figure out the "whodunit" part. Romance very predictable. A good beach read, nice descriptions of the Guernsey locale, though not unique enough to paint mental pictures that are any different from any other limited-access bucolic locale.

    15. 3.5/5*freshcoffeeblog/2014/1"Anne Allen continues sharing the magic of Guernsey in her novel, Guernsey Retreat. A rich story of familial discoveries, love that is lost as well as found, and a chance to bring justice to those who deserve it, Guernsey fans will enjoy the new series addition."
