    1. This was the second book in the hideaway series.I have enjoyed Robins' books for years but after reading this one I wonder if I have outgrown her. I enjoyed the Christy and Todd books and also the Sisterchick books but this one just didn't sit well with me.Carolyn goes to visit her mom and for a week, her daughter then shows up. Her twin sister is never heard from again. I just didn't get the enjoyment out of this book.


    2. The Canary Islands sound beautiful. There were some great thought provoking moments in the story.I like the statement that is attributed to Columbus in the book - "The time that is passed has been good. The time to come will be better."Carolyn visits her mother in the Canary Islands and meets Bryan Spencer again. She met him when she visited at 18. He was one of her first loves. But she went home and married another love - Jeff. At the time of the story, Jeff has been dead for 7 years.Carolyn an [...]


    3. Robin Jones Gunn has done it again! She's written a very sweet, touching story set in the Canary Islands. She does a great job of bringing the reader to the islands. I feel as if I've had a vacation. Main character, Carolyn, finds rekindled love as she visits her mother. She finds healing from the hurts of her past and is ready for a new beginning. Her daughter, Tikki, is also visiting the island and gets a surprise visit that changes the course of her life as well. There are blessings scattered [...]


    4. I am a HUGE fan of Robin Jones Gunn and this book was no exception. She is such a gifted author and I really loved this story. I loved the lessons that Carolyn learned and it was wonderful to add learn more about Todd's dad Bryan. A wonderful book that I'm sure I will read again. Last read September 2011


    5. I generally give "Inspirational" books a miss, but I thought the Canary Islands setting might make up for all the religious drivel. The setting and general story was okay, but I had to fast forward through all the platitudes and propaganda.


    6. My favorite Robin Jones Gunn books are the Christy books and I love that there was a connection to them within this book


    7. I didn't have any real expectations for the actual story, but it was pretty funny to hear about this 45 year old woman who told her story as if she was an 85 year old woman incapable of love. Really?Otherwise, it was a nice story.


    8. Title: CANARY ISLAND SONGAuthor Robin Jones GunnPublisher: Howard BooksJuly 2011ISBN: 978-1-4165-8341-7Genre: Contemporary romanceWhen Carolyn’s grown daughter tells her she needs to “get a life,” Carolyn decides it’s time to step out of her familiar routine as a single woman in San Francisco and escape to her mother’s home in the Canary Islands. Since Carolyn’s mother is celebrating her seventieth birthday, the timing of Carolyn’s visit makes for a perfect surprise. The surprise, [...]


    9. I do my reviews in the form of a letter, which is why they are written like this.Dear Robin Jones Gunn, I liked this book, but I didn't find it as good as I had hoped. There are a few reasons for that.1. Carolyn is a much older protagonist than Christy, Sierra, or Katie, so it was just unusual. When I read one of your Sisterchick books more than a year ago, I felt the same way. I relate a lot more to younger characters, especially because they are my age. I also find it more entertaining to read [...]


    10. Another wonderful book by Robin Jones Gunn. I love books about mother/daughter relationships and Canary Island Song is just that with romances included. Carolyn lives in the US, but after being widowed for seven years and different things happening in her life, Carolyn decides to visit her Mom, for her 70th birthday in the Canary Islands. There Carolyn is reunited with her old boyfriend from her teen years and learns some new things and has many adventures. Carolyn and Bryan are so sweet in thei [...]


    11. Often times we have to accept our lot in life. Whatever choices we have made along the way are personalized just for us.When life dealt Carolyn a tough hand, she dealt with it the best way she could. She coped on the outside, put on a smile when need be, and avoided the subject of her husband, Jeff's death. Even after so many years the grief remained buried deep inside. As long as no one mentioned it, she could ignore it.Yet, life was passing her by! Her twin sister, Marilyn is already married a [...]


    12. Second chances. Carolyn is in need of them and she is going to get them in this wonderful stand alone novel by Robin Jones Gunn.Carolyn's twin sister, Marilyn and her two daughters had been living with her for the past few years and now Marilyn has remarried giving Carolyn a second chance at living on her own. She gets into redecorating and even finds a guy to date, which is something her young adult daughter, Tikki, wants her to do.When problems with the man arise, Carolyn decides it is time to [...]


    13. When Carolyn decides to take a trip the Canary Islands to visit her mom, she never thought she would run into Bryan Spencer, the man she fell for twenty-five years before during a summer visit. As circumstances throw them together, Carolyn begins to feel again, for the first time since her husband's death seven years before. With the Canary Island song bringing her healing, will it also bring her a second chance with Bryan?I think I say it every time I read a Robin Jones Gunn book, but she is th [...]


    14. does not have enough stars for me to rate this book!!!! This book was AMAZING!!! This story as well as "Under A Maui Moon" were both wonderful reads and very much reminded me of Robin's Sisterchick novels (which I dearly miss)in the story of three generations of lovely ladies and their relationships with each other and the Lord and how they grow in these relationships. I also loved the connections between the characters of this book and Robin's earlier series "The Christy Miller Series"at was ve [...]


    15. Carolyn’s family moved to the United States from the Canary Islands in search of opportunity. Carolyn has now been widowed for seven years and decides to visit her mother who returned to the islands many years ago. I found much of the book, which is concerned mainly with Carolyn’s religious and romantic life, very off-putting. However, in the course of the story, the author creates an abstraction, “the Women of the Canary’s,” and I did find the book somewhat fascinating as an ethnograp [...]


    16. I really enjoyed, a super quick read, just would have liked more, as 200 odd pages isnt ever enough for something that you really like!My only complaint about this book at all is that the main character kept calling her own mother her grandmother and they varried on the spelling of Bryan's name, sometimes with a "y" and sometimes with an "i".This was one of those books that you know what some of what happens is gonna happen, but then there are things like "how" Carolyn's husband died that you ar [...]


    17. Robin Jones Gunn is well known for her YA books and her SisterChicks books. Here we have a book that reminds me a little of the SisterChicks books except instead of best friends we have Carolyn who is at a crossroads in her life, her mother who lives in the Canary Islands and her daughter who just can't get her boyfriend to commit. These 3 generations all learn a lot about each other and themselves when they take a little time to discover what's important. I loved the setting of this book and th [...]


    18. Finding herself at a point in her life where she is ready for a new adventure, Carolyn goes to visit her mother in the Canary Islands. There, she meets Bryan Spencer, who was her teenage crush years ago when she first visited the islands. But before she can enter into a relationship, Carolyn must deal with her own emotions related to her husband's tragic death seven years previously.If you enjoy inspirational romance novels featuring mature protagonists, this is worth a read. I enjoyed the descr [...]


    19. Carolyn has lost her husband seven years ago and she needs to get her heart back from her grief. When she travels to the Canary Islands for her mom’s seventieth birthday she runs into Bryan Spencer an old friend of hers when she first traveled to the Canaries as a teenager. Carolyn finds it hard at first that Bryan could be interested in her romantically but gradually grows to learn to love again. This book also shows the mother daughter relationships instead of just the romantic relationships [...]


    20. I love the settings that Robin Jones Gunn uses in her books. She always sets up such vivid pictures of the places and makes the readers feel as if they are there. In this book, Gunn's character deals with the grief of tragically losing her husband and learning how to move on in life. Part of this journey involves visiting her mother in the Canary Islands and learning to open her heart to someone she once loved, as well as learning to trust in God's ways again, despite the unfairness of life some [...]


    21. Once upon a time Robin Jones Gunn came to speak at my church. I read it in the bulletin and wasn't able to concentrate for the rest of service, because I was so excited. I love her books and this one was no exception. It tells the story of a mother, her mother and her daughter and how they fall in love. I appreciate how Robin always brings back her characters from other stories in unexpected ways. Plus, I loved the insight into a new culture and she makes the Canary Islands sound like a wonderfu [...]


    22. If you need a summer getaway but can't afford a cruise, get Canary Island Song and let Robin Jones Gunn's story take you to the Canaries. It's a story of reconnecting with family and with a past love. But for Carolyn, it's more than that. She's reconnecting with herself and with life. Beautifully written as only Robin Jones Gunn can do, you'll feel the island breezes in your hair and smell the salt air as you read. Novel Journey and I give Canary Island Song a very high recommendation. It's a mu [...]


    23. Robin Jones Gunn never ceases to amaze me. Her novels have a way of planting themselves in my heart and encouraging me to grow nearer to God; this one was no different. I loved watching Carolyn let go of her anger and begin to feel God's presence. I long to feel that presence and reading about someone else experiencing that, even a fictional someone, made me want to grow so much closer to God & feel that presence even more. Being a diehard "Christy & Todd" fan, I was so happy to learn a [...]


    24. Another lovely story by Robin Jones Gunn. Robin is a master of linking the characters in her series. I haven't read the Christy Miller series or the subsequent Christy & Todd books but I recognised the names of the characters when they were mentioned in the story. I'm sure fans of the Christy Miller/Christy & Todd books would have enjoyed the mention of them in this book and also reading about Todd's dad, Bryan.


    25. With all of Robin Jones Gunn's books my only problem is that I read them too fast. This was another very good one. Granted, I could figure out a few things that would happen but the journey to get there was so fun to read. I felt like I was sitting on the hot sands of the Canary Island. I actually found out that my geography knowledge wasn't too bad!Now on to the next and newest of the Gunn books, then I may have to start reading her teen/young adult books.


    26. Fast easy read. I like Maui Moon better but probably because I love Hawaii. I like the author because her books are light and they aren't preachy and don’t cram God down your throat but rather allow Him to be easily understood and loved. The relationship between the 3 generations was sweet and it was nice to see that even adults need their moms. I will probably go back and read the Christy Miller books so I can learn more about Bryan & Matthew.


    27. Christian literature with a little bit of romance, this book is primarily about the relationship of a middle aged widow with her mother and her daughter. I really liked the part where she went to have a manicure and pedicure and the salon women congratulated her on performing a kindness for herself (apparently this is a Canary Island custom). How great is that?


    28. This book is amazing. Like the character Carolyn, my first visit to the island was at 18. It truly is a place that will transform you and stay in your heart forever. I long to return. The book takes you on a heartfelt journey of healing. At least it did for me. This was the first book I have read by this author. I loved her writing style and will probably read more of her works.


    29. I enjoyed reading about Todd's dad and only wish he would have given a little more information on what his son and daughter in law are up to these days! Before reading this book I'd never really heard of the Canary Islands, but now I'd love to visit. And I loved the scene with the pedicure and the "my, what big feet!"


    30. Gunn is my most favorite writer because I grew up reading her teen girl series. I've never read anyone else who comes close to her characters, story and just the way you feel closer to God at the end of the book without even knowing you were learning spiritual lessons to begin with:) great beach read!
