All Holly Tyler wants is a fantastic career, a not-too-committed relationship, and a city where there are no painful memories. Instead, she's called back to her hometown of Seashell Bay to help with her family's struggling general store. It's a town where everyone knows everyone, and where one man could sink Holly's careful plans.

I have to be honest. This was almost a DNF for me. It just wasn't quite enthralling. I found myself not really caring as much about the characters as I should. I am one of those people who just really needs to know what happens, so I did finish. Plus, the first two books in the series were perfectly lovely. The small town island is so rich in everything I love about a small town romance. Repeat characters, personality, places you come to know and love. That backdrop is really what keeps me readi ...more

Micah is the Deputy Sheriff of Seashell Bay and he wants to explore what is between them, but she is tied to New York. Will Holly see what is right in front of her or follow her career?

This is my first ever read by V.K. Sykes who is a husband and wife writing team, by the way. Now that I have read this book, it makes me want to go back and read the other two, find out the stories of some of the other characters, but See You at Sunset can be read separately. Of course this is not a new discovery, but I just adore these small town romances with the 'down home' feel to them no matter what part of the country they are set in. This book takes place in

"While it was absolutely clear that Micah wanted her, she wouldn't risk destroying their friendship with some doomed summer fling--however wickedly tempting sex with Deputy Lancaster might be."

This was such a sweet story about the age old question... Can you truly go home again?

Holly is in the middle of slowly putting her life back together after losing her husband and starting her career, when suddenly she is needed back home to help her aunts with their town store. Not only is she put under so

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.

I always love a good small town setting. There's always something about a place where people know each other and look after one another. Yes, there are downsides to it, especially when people start getting into other's people's business. But it's usually with good intentions. I've followed Seashell Bay since the first book, so I've been waiting on this book since I fi

I received this book from Goodreads Giveaway for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. Not my usual genre, but I would recommend this book for a quick summer read. I would definitely read other books in the series. Holly and Micah's love story is complicated, but enduring. Will these two ever come together or is life way too complicated and tragic. Coming from the east coast myself, it brought me back to summer on the water, friends and family and first loves. Great read!!

I thought that this was a very good read. It was a slower pace than I am used to but I found myself really enjoying it. There was romance, suspense, home-town loving and well developed characters. V.K. Skyes did an amazing job blending them all together to give us a great story!

The attraction of living in a town like Seashell Bay is evident all through SEE YOU AT SUNSET, where residents are likable along with plenty of downhome charm. Their willingness to aid someone would make the area a great place to live, while several of its citizens have unique behavior that made me smile and even laugh at their antics. The romantic couple in the book is particularly interesting, and many of the challenges they had to face moved me. V. K. Sykes is a married couple that always cre ...more

A sweet and sunny story with a twist of sexy, and drizzle of suspense.
A lovely, heartfelt, and warm story from the Seashell Bay. It filled my mind with dreams of warm days, cool ocean, and sunny skies. This is a great escape romance, if you are looking for a few hours away from the cold, wet, and snow.

The tale gives a look at the local peoples lives, as they are trying to find the balance of traditions of the island, and going forward, and accepting change. The readers get a glimpse of the life

See You At Sunset is a delightfully charming story of friends to lovers, or even second chances at love. Holly has returned home to help her Aunts run their store. In her mind it was temporary as she had major decisions to make about where her life would be taking her – and she didn’t feel that it would be here back home.

“And feel of it,” he said, applying a gentle squeeze.
