Weinstein pulled every string I had in my heart and in my gut for the most beautiful and unpredictable story about three lives interwoven into a remarkable story about love and friendships, guilt and loss, and mistakes and forgiveness. I absolutely thought the storytelling to be brilliant with amazing casts of characters. I was sucked in to the story from the first two chapters and did not want this to end at all.
What a fantastic ...more
One thing I know is this, when reading a book by Rochelle, keep tissues near by. Always emotional but this novel was something more.

Back then she couldn't get him out of her head. Then a chance meeting while dining with her mom brings them together again. Their ...more
2 people in love, then cracks occurred and life threw an unexpected curveball. All that remained was the strength in their hearts. Charlotte and Philip were the couple, but this was not just their love story. It was about life, bigger and more beautiful than we could imagine even in the midst of a tragedy.

First of all, as a lover of all things related to the Florida Keys, I loved the setting of this novel. Secondly, as a borderline stalkerish dog-lover, I loved the prominent role that Charlotte's dog, Sunny, played in the ...more

A new to me author and a great read to start with.
Sometimes in life when you expect less, someone will come into your life like a whirlwind and turn it upside down. A once in a lifetime encounter with a mysterious but very gentleman British man, makes the lovely teacher to reconsider her life options and a romantic love story begins.
I loved the writing and the fast-paced action with a few reliable moments of a couple that is trying to have a relationship while Philip is travelling ...more
What if love is elusive, challenging, too demanding, and overall not worth the effort but then again what if it's everything you hoped and dreamed it would be?
Charlotte is at the crossroads of romance with two men and ladies shouldn't we all be so unfortunate right?
I'm serious when I say she's ready to settle down with Philip in beautiful Florida Keys but he's been absent lately.
So what's up??
This was a beautifully powerful well-written story of love, unforseen loss and finding love again. The writing style of the author is flawless and the story of Philip, Charlotte, and Ben is emotionally haunting. You will connect with these three from the beginning and they will enter your heart and stay there until the last page is read.
The secondary characters in the book were very likeable and were pivotal in the lives of Charlotte, Ben and Philip.
The story is very ...more
