I’m not even sure where to start with this amazing story. I’ve had a bit of a reading slump lately and between some books not grabbing me straight away and a massive lack of time it’s impacted my enthusiasm for reading.
I always love a story by Jenny Hale and this one grabbed me within the first few pages and just yanked me in. I was quickly fully submerged in the story and was keen to find 10 mins to escape so I could keep reading.
We meet business partners Andy and Lauren straight away and quickly learn why Lauren has lost her passion for her job. As Lauren nurses her heartbreak she decides to take a break and head to North Carolina.
A story brimming with friendship, love and heartbreak in equal measures, the characters are beautiful souls and so relatable. As the story progresses you can feel how it is sewn together with many intricate threads that tighten and you keep reading to create a wonderful ending.
From the USA Today bestselling author of The Summer House, with over one million copies of her books sold, comes a heartwarming beach read, perfect for fans of Sheila Roberts, Jill Shalvis, and Debbie Macomber.
After the loss of her fiancé a year ago, event planner Lauren Sutton can’t seem to go on with her choice of career or the life she’d built with her fiancé any longer. Floundering emotionally, she makes a snap decision to sell her half of the business and spend the summer among the sand dunes and changing tides of the Outer Banks, taking care of an old inn in Rodanthe, North Carolina with its elderly owner Mary Everett.
Perhaps the salty breezes of the Atlantic and the warmth of summer sun on her face will help her find her direction. What she doesn’t expect to find is a story hidden away in a string of sea glass that will change her life forever.
And complicating things is local fisherman Brody Harrison. All she’d wanted was to sink her toes in the sand and let the coastal breeze calm her aching heart. But Brody shakes up her plan in ways she’d never imagined.
An uplifting summer escape that will strengthen your family bonds and have you believing in the incredible power of love. If you enjoyed the TV movies based on Jenny’s books and are looking for more feel-good, small-town romance, look no further!
