Book Review: Courtney Walsh’s “Is It Any Wonder: a Nantucket love story”

This Spring, author Courtney Walsh takes readers back to Nantucket for the experience of a lifetime.

“A lifetime” is the core of this contemporary romance.  Is It Any Wonder illustrates the complicated relationship of Louisa Chambers and Cody Boggs that spans the course of 29 years. The pair, who share the same birthday, grew up together and naturally started dating in high school. However, a tragic death in the family and a devastating secret tore their two families apart. Twelve years after their separation, Louisa and Cody have a chance encounter (and an ailing loved one) reunite them. The stubborn main characters are surrounded by a sea of colorful residents that help the story flow namely, Maggie, their parents, Louisa’s best friend/business partner Ally, socialite blogger Mackenzie and the Nantucket Coast Guard. Romantic sparks reignite for the main characters, but can they overcome the unknown challenges ahead?

Health, death and second chances are on full display in this novel. The emotional voyage mixed with the possibly of a romance is soul-stirring. This novel is a tear-jerker throughout, but it has a rewarding happy ending.

Is It Any Wonder: a Nantucket love story releases on April 6th, 2021.
