Well, this was a fresh breath of some heavily ocean scented, salt filled air!

I am the first to admit that I don’t read the book synopsis 99% of the time before I read a book. What can I say? I like to live life on the edge occasionally!

Just kidding, my ISTJ, enneagram 1 self very much likes to be in the safe zones of life.

Anyway, back to the book. This caught me by total surprise, but in the best way!

Here are 4 things I loved about this book:

  • The portrayal of grief was so heart wrenching, touching, and from what I can imagine, realistic. I felt like I was living Anna’s sadness with her. I love a good gut punch novel, and this provided just that.
  • The atmospheric writing. As someone who is landlocked in Kentucky, USA, I love a book that can mentally transport me to the beach. This one nailed it.
  • The characters were so lovable. While I can appreciate flawed characters, I always need something to root for – this one had it.
  • The lack of problematic behavior in this love story made my heart soar. I think, so often in literature, we see gaslighting, unfair fighting, and other countless red flags, but in this slow burn romance, we see good, wholesome love.

The ONE THING I didn’t love about this book:

I needed more. Like, 25 pages. I needed more resolution, but we can’t always get what we want, right?

This was 4.5 stars for me and I love that it went straight to paperback too, making it an affordable new release! If you would like to purchase via Amazon or, using the provided links gives me a small commission at no cost to you. I would really appreciate it!
