The Bookshop at Water's End

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis: The women who spent their childhood summers in a small southern town discover it harbors secrets as lush as the marshes that surround it...
Bonny Blankenship’s most treasured memories are of idyllic summers spent in Watersend, South Carolina, with her best friend, Lainey McKay. Amid the sand dunes and oak trees draped with Spanish moss, they swam and wished for happy-ever-afters, then escaped to the local bookshop to read and whisper in the glorious cool silence. Until the night that changed everything, the night that Lainey’s mother disappeared.

Now, in her early fifties, Bonny is desperate to clear her head after a tragic mistake threatens her career as an emergency room doctor, and her marriage crumbles around her. With her troubled teenage daughter, Piper, in tow, she goes back to the beloved river house, where she is soon joined by Lainey and her two young children. During lazy summer days and magical nights, they reunite with bookshop owner Mimi, who is tangled with the past and its mysteries. As the three women cling to a fragile peace, buried secrets and long ago loves return like the tide.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: The Bookshop at Water's End was a really nice refreshing read.  I loved the setting in South Carolina.  My favorite was the bookshop and the lessons learned there.  It was a magically place. Even though Bonny's made a tragic mistake, it made her evaluate her life and what she really wanted to change.  There were lots of broken relationships that were fixed by the end of the book.  Enjoyable read!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes, I would read another book by Patti Callahan Henry.  I think Between the Tides, The Ideal of Love and Driftwood Summer all look really good.

Patti Callahan Henry is the New York Times Bestelling novelist of eleven novels. Her latest is THE BOOKSHOP AT WATER'S END with Penguin Random House/Berkley.
