Author: Georgina Troy
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Welcome to Sunshine Island – where the beaches are golden, the lifestyle is perfect and anything is possible.
It’s December and Jax Hudson doesn’t mind the cold. He’s still wearing shorts and walking barefoot on the beach. He’s looking forward to spending Christmas with his girlfriend until she unexpectantly calls time on their relationship.
Alone and feeling very sorry for himself, Jax accepts an invitation to a Christmas Eve party and bumps into Phoebe Bishop who is still mortified about kissing him in the summer.
As the first snow flurries delight the party guests, the festive joy soon turns to disaster when a snowstorm knocks out the island’s power. Panic ensues as people realise their Christmas plans may have to be cancelled.
Phoebe is reluctantly enlisted by Jax to help transport the partygoers to the comforts of their own homes. As Jax and Phoebe spend time together they realise they have more in common than either had imagined…
Could this be a Christmas full of magic, mistletoe, and happy-ever-afters?
My Review of Chasing Dreams on Sunshine Island
Chasing Dreams on Sunshine Island is the third and final book in the Sunshine Island series by Georgina Troy but can easily be read as a standalone book – however, to truly get to know each of the characters really well, I would suggest reading the series. This story in the series focuses on Jax Hudson, who is looking forward to spending Christmas with his girlfriend. That is until she ends their relationship completely unexpectedly.
With all his Christmas plans ruined, Jax decides to stop feeling sorry for himself. Accepting an invite to a Christmas Eve party – the last person he expects to see there is Phoebe – who is still totally mortified about kissing Jax the previous summer. Phoebe is also shocked to see Jax at the party – thinking she had done a really good job of avoiding him as much as she possibly could.
But when the festive snowy weather turns into a freak snowstorm, it seems that both Jax and Phoebe have no choice and can’t avoid each other. Will the festive feeling bring Jax and Phoebe close together once more? Or are they truly meant to just keep avoiding each other forever more?
Chasing Dreams on Sunshine Island is such a lovely, uplifting and heartwarming story, with beautifully written characters, and even though we are in Spring, it really is the perfect festive read to curl up on a Saturday afternoon with and lose yourself for a few hours.
