It’s been quite awhile since I’ve read an entire book in one day, but this book had me hooked from page one. Maybe because I was just in the right mood and most definitely because there were aspects to which I could relate (divorce, the healing magnetism of the beach and the ocean, the complexity of relationships between women, the tragedy of love) or to which I wish I could relate. I just found this to be a wonderful story.

I am becoming a bit weary of the basic theme, which seems to be so popular as of late, of a story within a story and of someone of a younger generation stumbling upon family “secrets” of the older generation. That being said, while I found the secrets in this story to be sometimes predictable, that didn’t lessen the magic for me. This is definitely a chick book, and one that some may find borders on Lifetime movie-esque at times, but sometimes on a lazy day off there’s nothing more relaxing than a good Lifetime movie, except, of course, for a good book.
