About the Gansett Island Episodes…
From Marie: My fictional island has become such a huge part of my life—and yours—over these last six years, and I’ve created so many characters who speak to me between books and during the writing of new ones. I can’t possibly give them all a new story in every book, but I still have so much to say about them. With that in mind, I’ll be launching a new “Gansett Island Episodes” series in 2017, featuring shorter stories about past characters who readers love and want more of. Mixed in with these episodes will be at least one full-length book a year. So we’ll have plenty more from our favorite island, with new stories for past characters as well as all-new stories, too. I’m looking forward to this new adventure and hope you’ll take the ferry to Gansett for the new episodes!

Out on March 21

Gansett Island Episodes: Season 1, Episode 1 by Marie Force

So, I have to confess that I have been a huge Marie Force Gansett Island fan since March of 2014. I found “Maid for Love” and loved it and haven’t looked back since. The series has become somewhat like the soap operas I used to watch years ago. The characters so familiar and loved. And I can’t wait to hear what’s next for each of them. So this idea of episodes? LOVE it! This episode focuses on mainly Victoria and Shannon with a few other characters thrown in. These 2 have been around a while in the series but despite not really hearing many details, just that they were a couple. In this episode we learn that Shannon is harboring a devastating secret. He doesn’t want to share it with anyone, including Victoria. But in the process, he almost loses her. This story highlights how sometimes we have to hit rock bottom and nearly lose it all in order to find healing, acceptance and love. Definitely a must read for all Gansett Island fans! If you haven’t read any of the Gansett Island series, you really should read them before trying to get into these episode books as the stories are all built off of previous books. As usual, the writing is very good and exactly what we’ve come to expect from this author. A definite 5 out of 5 stars and a must read!
