This story has some dark elements, but it contains an exciting storyline. The listener is immediately drawn into the story, and is given a solid glimpse into each of the protagonists personalities within the first two chapters.

Read full review in the 2020 March issue of InD'tale Magazine.

Amazing characters and a well developed storyline. Love the bits of humor woven in. This book is like a warm sunrise. A wonderful start to a new series. So well done. Realistic. I feel like Im living the story right next to the characters. There is a dark thread woven through that adds so much more to the story. Seriously an amazingly well written book. I absolutely loved it.

Delightful page turner

This is just the sort of book you want to kick back with a good glass of white wine and read with your feet in front of the fire. The characters pull you in right away and you dont want to put it down until you see it through to the end! Nice balance between realistic characters fighting modern day struggles and the levity you want from a good romance novel.

Chasing Forever is the first book in A Beachside Romance and a great start to this new series. Maddy McAllister and Chase Anderson are well-developed characters, strong, likable, and relatable. The storyline is well written and captured my interest from start to finish, with mystery, suspense, and a wonderful second chance for romance.

I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.

This is the 1st book I've read written by Carrie Thorne; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I cant wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

I read through the night! This is the kind of book you want to curl up on the couch with a nice glass of wine to read. The characters are engaging and well rounded. The story flows well making it hard to put the book down. Looking forward to more from this author.

This book was amazing - full of plot twists that helped develop already strong characters into people that seemed actually real. It was super fun to read, and even the side characters were awesome! I really enjoyed it.

Good romantic suspense. Not your usual type of story. This was my first book by this author, but I will be reading more in this series.

Not a Light Romance

Despite the cover, which looks like one for a light and frothy beach romance, this book is not a contemporary light romance read. In fact, the first scene details the aftermath of an explosion on an oil rig out in the ocean. This happens right before the hero learns about the death of his father. Our introduction to the heroine also has a hard edge to it. I'll admit to preferring a light and breezy contemporary romance rather than serious ones like this one. Therefore, I

If I didn't love it and want to read it over and over, it wouldn't have been released!
I love second chance romances, about reuniting with the one that got away.
One of my favorite aspects about Chasing Forever is the friendships the characters share, how they relate to each other when things get tough.
Enjoy!
Next up: Running Forever, out September 20. If you liked Chasing Forever even a little bit (which I hope you liked it a lot), you'll love Running Home.
Thanks for reading :)
