I love this series. It makes me want to rent a little beach house and smell that salty air. I live in the San Francisco bay area so I know all about the area in the book. Even if I didn’t, I would still feel that I did with this wonderful writing.
Melinda has never forgotten the baby she gave up when she was 16. Now, 13 years later, the adoptive father Jeremy, has contacted her about seeing her daughter Shiloh. It ends up being a lot more than she expected. Shiloh suffers from Lupus and has been sick on and off since she was a little girl. Her adoptive mother left when she was 7, not wanting to be saddled with a sick child. Jeremy has raised her on his own and he is hesitant about them meeting but it’s what Shiloh wants. What they don’t expect is to find the family that they all need and deserve.
You get to meet up with old friends Andrew and Cheryl from a past book, that’s always a plus to see how people are doing that you have read about before. Another plus is that these characters are so darn likable! I was rooting for them from their opening moments. I admit was I teary turning the last few pages. I hated to say goodbye to this little group and to this book. I hope there are more in store for us readers.
I received a copy of this book from William Morrow in exchange for an honest review.
