Book Review: "A Home By The Sea"
Grace Lindstrom has followed her fiancé across three continents, starry-eyed and full of dreams. But when he dies in a plane crash, Grace discovers that their life together was the cruelest kind of lie—and swears to never lose herself to that kind of love again. Until one night, when a chance encounter leads her to the kind of man she's always dreamed of—and the deep family ties she's never known.Noah McKay knows he can't offer Grace any kind of future—not when he spends every day putting his life on the line. But when Grace's grandfather suddenly falls ill and she's called home to the small island town where she grew up, he realizes he can't live without her. Aided by good knitting, good chocolate and deep friendship, Grace is slowly learning to trust again—but can she learn to love a man whose secrets run so deep.
I think this is the first time I have read anything by this author. I know I have some books of hers on my TBR. But this particular book I have been eyeing for awhile. It turned out to be one of those books where when you are done you say "Why didn't I read this one sooner?"
Well I liked this book. I liked how Grace and Noah got 'introduced' at the beginning of the story. I really enjoyed the family ties with Noah and Grace. Grace's friends were introduced and as I was reading it and was getting towards the end, I was wondering how they were going to end the book. I was hoping to not be disappointed. I wasn't it. Especially when I noticed that there was going to be a sequel coming out in September. =) I think if it wasn't for that I might have been a tad disappointed.
I am looking forward to the sequel and I am going to be moving more of her books up on my TBR pile as well. =)
