Monica's Review

Walks on the beach with you bare feet swaying through the grains of sand, maybe hand in hand with the possible love of your life, does that not sound amazing? That is only the start of this book, Dangerous Sands has smooth writing, sensuality and mystery. That is some of the feelings I got from reading this book.

Rita is a simple woman needing to find her way back after her divorce and willing to start a new beginning with her Aunt Liz. It sounds amazing starting a new beginning

Dangerous Sands is a contemporary romance that focuses on choices. The heroine at a time in her life where decisions must be made. But I honestly had a hard time relating to and liking Rita. She's cynical, closed off, and doesn't trust men, and sometimes she comes off as crass. Further into the story, the reader catches a glimpse of more emotion from her.

The story itself had plenty of things to keep me going. Pacing was great, and I absolutely adored Rita's Aunt.

I wondered throughout who Rita
