Sometimes the next best thing is what you’ve been looking for all along…Beth Chandler has spent her whole life pleasing others. She went to law school to make her grandparents happy. She agreed to marry her workaholic boyfriend, Lucas, to make him happy. And, despite her fear of boats, she took a ferry to see Lucas’s parents just to make them happy.While suffering through a panic attack on the ferry, Beth meets a tall, sexy stranger who talks her down from her fear—and makes her heart flutter in the process. Soon, she has a new reason to panic: her gorgeous, blue-eyed rescuer is Lucas’s brother, Joe. But could she ever leave her fiancé for his own brother…even if Lucas is more focused on making partner than on making their relationship work…and even if Joe turns out to be everything she never knew she wanted?Filled with excitement and delight, Meant to Be is the story of a young woman torn between urban pressures and small-town pleasures.

Five stars for Terri Osburn's Anchor Island novels. Osburn's debut novel and first book in the Anchor Island series, Meant to Be, is a fabulous introduction to the island and it's community.

It's so much like the life I grew up with.Living on the island during the summer getting there via ferry. I felt for her pain as she cro...
