My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Coastal Spirit: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise Book 3) by Lindsay Marie Miller is the last in this series and an enjoyable ​read but you definitely have to read the other two books to ensure you get a better understanding of what is happening. Lindsay writes so you can envision the characters and what is happening around them. There are lots of twists and turns and is a suspense, romantic historical story that keeps you in your toes in this fast paced story. Who doesn’t like a story that is full of love and joy, passion and hatred, suspense and loads of mystery.

The third book to the Stranded in Paradise Trilogy brings us new characters and reunites us with the old ones. Elaine and Henry are still fighting for their lives to get off the island and this time Henry’s sister, Louisa is with them. At the end of book 2 a volcano has erupted and Henry and Elaine barely have the strength to stand thanks to the beating from Judas. Somehow Elaine finds more of her inner strength and is able to get them to safety.

I really liked the adventure these characters took, even though it wasn’t an adventure they chose. In the first story, Jungle Eyes, I found Elaine a little unsettled and possibly bi polar. However, in Coastal Spirit, she is matured, level headed and ready to take on the evil Judas and Frederic. I like the growth this character has taken. I like the twist and surprise that comes with Frederic and with Captain Scarlett. I know there has to be more to his story.

The only thing that really bothered me in this book was that there didn’t seem like enough worry about Lily. I’m not sure if Elaine just put Lily out of her mind in order to survive but I kept thinking, “What about Lily?” “Who’s got Lily?” Thankfully by the end of the story Lily’s situation is revealed.

I highly recommend this book but it is not a standalone. You must start with Jungle Eyes. I can’t wait to see what else Lindsay Marie Miller has in store.

“How many lives did they have left? How many more times could they cheat death? How many days remained on the island for them to survive?”

 

Coastal Spirit is the third and final book in the Stranded in Paradise trilogy by Lindsay Marie Miller. It’s a great action adventure- with an historical timeline and elements, and suspense, danger, drama, tension, romance and angst. While I have loved this series, as a whole, I did have a couple of minor issues with this book that kept pulling me out of the story and disrupting the flow- which in turn kept me from loving it quite as much as the first two. But I still enjoyed it, and found out how the series concluded!
We jump in pretty much where Island Smile left off. Where the climactic ending left us on tenterhooks wondering how the characters were going to survive the crisis. Henry, Elaine, and Louisa are trying to survive – pitting themselves against the jungle, mother nature, and sinister foes. They have cheated death so many times already, and none of them are sure that their luck would hold out or whether they would finally succumb to all the dangers lurking on the island. We catch up with familiar characters, as well as meeting new ones. Henry, Elaine and Louisa have to try to figure out who they can trust, as well as finding a way off the island, and getting home.
There is quite a lot going on in this story that had me on the edge of my seat. There were some very emotional times, and then there were moments of tenderness, humour, and sheer anger. Some of the push/pull, stubborn pride, and angst, was sooooo frustrating. There were more than a few times where I wanted to shake some sense into them all!
Ms. Miller will continue to be one of my go to authors and I look forward to reading her next book.

Thank you, Ms Miller!
