Description

"This is Bella Andre at her finest! I love Elderflower Island, the bookshop, and Mari and Owen!" ~ 5 stars

All Mari Everett’s life, she’s had two secret dreams: To own a bookstore, and to reunite with her long lost father. But when he passes away unexpectedly and she inherits his home and business, the only way she can learn about his life—especially why he abandoned her when she was three and never came back—is by leaving California to take over his bookstore in London. 

Owen Sullivan lives and works on Elderflower Island, a close knit community in London where it’s impossible to keep a secret. It turns out, however, that Charlie Forsythe kept his daughter a secret from everyone for nearly thirty years. When Mari comes to London, Owen immediately falls for her. He’s never met a woman so intelligent, determined and honest. Not to mention so beautiful that she takes his breath away. 

Soon, everyone on the island—including Owen’s four siblings, parents and grandmother—is pitching in to help give the bookstore a fresh start. But as insatiable passion develops into love, will Mari and Owen be able to grab hold of their fresh start? Or will their pasts continue to cast a dark shadow over their chance at a brilliant future together in London?

"I loved Elderflower Island and couldn't put this book down! Mari and Owen's story is exactly what you hope for in a Sullivan romance." ~ Sarah, 5 stars

"I loved how Bella Andre wrote about London! She brought everything to life so I could visit there without leaving home. Such a heartwarming story!" ~ Becky, 5 stars


"I adore the Sullivans! They love hard, laugh uproariously and live in the moment." Isha, 5 stars

  • Ah! More Sullivans to Love!

    I loved this introductory book to the London Sullivans! It did not disappoint. Owen is the oldest of the five London Sullivans and totally devoted to his family, even managing his grandmother’s literary career.when he sees Mari for the first time, he knows down to his toes, she’s the one he’s Tb been waiting for. Mari comes to the island looking for answers to all of the questions she’s had about her estranged father. He left when she was three and she never heard from him again until his passing. Owen and his family have quite a few answers for her as they were good friends with him, but Mari finds quite a few answers in her father’s book shop. In fact, she might have found quite a lot more there.

    I loved meeting the London Sullivan’s! Mari and Owen’s story was so beautifully written by Bella Andre. Mari’s parents divorced when she was 3 years old and she never understood why her father never tried to see her again. Her father died and she was left his estate including a bookstore in England. She always wanted to own a bookstore. She went to England to try to find some answers about her father and figure out what to do with the bookstore. Enter Owen Sullivan who was very good friends with her dad and sparks start to fly. I just loved this story and can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

    The Sullivan series has been amazing. It is one that I reread often but As Long As I Have You was amazing. It showed us to never give up on your dreams and how to forgive yourself. The love story was amazing. The learned that they were strong on there own but were stronger together. As always Bella Andrea hit out of the park.

    ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars As Long As I Have You is book 1 in the new series London Sullivans by Bella Andre. Mari Everett and Owen Sullivan meet when she comes to London after receiving word her estranged father, who she has not seen for almost 30 years has passed away and left her his home and business...a bookstore...one of her secret dreams. Slow building story of two people with dark shadows in their past, whether Mari will stay in London or return to the US, passion, healing hearts and finding a HEA...

    Boring boring boring! One dimensional characters. Ridiculous scenes (completely revamping an entire bookstore including painting, making slip covers and rehabbing an outdoor garden in one day? Come on!) I have read this author before and I was soooo disappointed. Truly feels like she hired this one out to a team of third rate writers and then they pieced it all together. So tired of the book I didn’t even finish.

    Welcome to London!!! And to a new branch of the Sullivan family tree. Bella has created a dynasty, from California to Seattle to New York to Maine and now across the ocean, on the beautiful Elderflower Island. We meet Mari Everett, who has long wanted to know her biological father. Once she hears of his passing, she knows the only connection surviving is his bookstore on the magical island of Elderflower. Once there, she becomes immediately surrounded by Sullivan’s, especially Owen, who knows she is special from the moment he meets her. Bella has always given us a vision of love at first sight. It isn’t always a magical beginning but we always have a magical HEA. This is no exception. And we have a whole new branch of the fabulous Sullivan family to learn about in the future.

    Mari lives in CA with her mom and stepdad and brother. Not seeing her dad since 3y/o she was heartbroken to hear he passes away before she could talk to him as an adult. Owen Sullivan and family has lived in a small community island and knew Charlie and his bookshop. This was a great story and I very much recommended the book.
  • Adorable and almost proper love story!

    My heart belongs to a bookshop in London! An absolutely wonderful extension of the Sullivan family tree. Owen and Mari come together in true Sullivan style. Love at first sight, a respectful (but short) courtship, and family everywhere. Bella Andre’s stories always captivate and transport me to another place. Mari uncovers all the mysteries about her absent father and falls in love with London and Owen. Owen works through his guilt and begins to learn to live again. I’m so excited to read about each of the London Sullivan siblings.

    I love how Mari and Owen meet, how their relationship builds, and the fantastic HEA complete with a nibble or two of future stories. Another Sullivan classic.

    This is such a sweet book. I did feel sad that Mari didn’t get to see her Dad before he died. Loved how great a friend Owen is and how helpful his whole family is. But will her Mom understand she might not return? That she wants to run the bookshop? It’s such a heartfelt book and I highly recommend it.
