Return to the Beach House TLC Book Tours

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): Over the course of one year, in a charming cottage by the sea, eight people will discover love and remembrance, reconciliation and reunion, beginnings and endings in this unforgettable sequel to Georgia Bockoven’s The Beach House and Another Summer.

Alison arrives at the beach house in June to spend a month with her restless grandson before he leaves for his freshman year in college. Over a decade before, Alison lost her beloved husband, and has faced life alone ever since. Now she discovers a new life, and possible new love.
August brings together four college friends facing a milestone. Across summer’s final days, they share laughter, tears, and love—revealing long-held secrets and creating new and even more powerful bonds.
World-class wildlife photographer, Matthew, and award-winning war photographer, Lindsey, arrive at the beach house in January, each harboring the very real fear that it will mark the end of their decade-long love affair. Alone in the house’s warm peace, they will be forced to truly look at who they are and what they want, discovering surprising truths that will change their lives forever.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Looking for a great beach read.look no further!  All three stories are completely different and hold their own.  I originally thought that the first story about Alison was my favorite, but as I reflect over all three….they are all my favorites for different reasons.  

Favorite Character(s):  I probably connected more with the ABCD girlsfour college friends come together after 5 years.  I would love to plan such a trip and "get real" with my closest friends.  The setting at the Beach House, would make it so much more special.  Each of the four ladies had something special about them, that made them collectively, my favorite!

Alison - new love and many firsts

College girl friends - how true friends can (and should) be relied on

Matthew/Lindsey - true love is real

Setting:  At the Beach House in Northern California - how perfect, eh?

Fast read/slow read:  Perfect pace.  I love that the book is divided up into three separate short stories.  Just the right amount of story at the right pace….perfect for summer/beach reading.

Cover:  LOVE it!  Anything to do with a beach scene is going to get all thumbs up from me!!
