Book Review: Indigo Isle
Now she's a successful Hollywood location scout who travels the world, finding perfect places for movie shoots. Home is wherever she lands, and between her busy schedule and dealing with her boss's demands, she has little time to think about the past . . . until her latest gig lands her a stone's throw from everything she left behind.
Searching off the coast of Charleston for a secluded site to film a key scene, Sonny wanders onto a private barrier island and encounters its reclusive owner, known by locals as the Monster of Indigo Isle. What she finds is a man much more complex than the myth.
Once a successful New York attorney, Hudson Renfrow's grief has exiled him to his island for several years. He spends his days alone, tending his fields of indigo, then making indigo dye--and he has no interest in serving the intrusive needs of a film company or yielding to Sonny's determined curiosity. But when a hurricane makes landfall on the Carolina coast, stranding them together, an unlikely friendship forms between the two damaged souls. Soon the gruff exterior Hudson has long hidden behind crumbles--exposing the tender part of him that's desperate for forgiveness and a second chance.
A story of hanging on and letting go, of redemption and reconciliation, and of a love that heals the deepest wounds, from the author of the breakout Southern fiction bestseller Under the Magnolias.

I found this book to be a charming read. In the beginning, it was a bit slow for me but it picked up as the story progressed.
Hudson is a grumpy man but with Sonny determined to win him over, I grew closer to him as well. Especially when I learned about his past. It was entertaining to see Hudson and Sonny connecting with one another as they are both so different.
The author did a lovely job of storytelling. Instantly, I was transported to Indigo Isle. it was like I was there with Sonny and Hudson experiencing everything they did. I plan to check out more books by this author.
