Book Review for Indigo Isle by T.I. Lowe

Indigo Isle by T.I. Lowe

384 pages, Hardcover 

Publication June 6, 2023 

Genre:  Christian Fiction 

Taken from Goodreads:  Storms show up and there ain’t a thing we can do to stop them.” 
Sonny Bates left South Carolina fifteen years ago and never looked back. 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 . 


My Thoughts:This book pulled me right in and did not let me go until I finished it.   I read it on a road trip and was thrilled that I had many hours in the car to read.   I love the setting of Charleston, I love the characters, but mostly I love the story.   


Sonny is a great characterShe becomes even better when she meets HudsonHudson is a recluse, having lived through a nightmare he has found solace on his family island and rarely leaves itOf course, Sonny finds this island and also finds a way into Hudson’s world.    I really liked learning the history of Hudson’s island.   Indigo has a rich history that I did not know anything about.    


I really enjoyed the book and will be looking for more from T.I. Lowe 

Thank you Tyndale House Publishers for a copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
