#MMBBR #Review Beach Breeze by @JoanneDeMaio


From the New York Times bestselling author of Beach Blues comes a novel of summers you never forget and friendships that never fade.

After a heartbreaking summer on the Connecticut shore, a group of beach friends is as adrift as an unmoored rowboat. When a dismayed Jason Barlow drives as far away from the sea as he can, leaving behind his wife, Maris, as well as their stately cottage on the bluff, that news hits like a sudden wave. Gathering over an intimate meal in a coastal diner, the friends make a solemn pact to lean on each other and not make any more rash decisions.

Which is all well and good, until each friend wavers--testing relationships, commitments, and especially love in the little beach community of Stony Point. But can the magic of the weathered boardwalk, whispering lagoon grasses, and sweet salt air cure what ails them?

Like a swaying seashell wind chime, Beach Breeze is a book that leaves echoes of summer's sweetness and sadness, long after the last page is turned.

There is something about DeMaio's writing that touches the soul. I adored being able to visit old friends, as Beach Breeze takes place right where Beach Blues leaves off. I love that I am certain to be able to come back to a new installment of a series and once again be taken into the settings and lives of characters that are reliable and comfortable. You enjoy being side-by-side with them, living each day, through highs and lows. You become part of their tight knit community, you feel like part of the story. Beach Breeze was another great read with deepness in story. There is a tragedy that occurs and this caused some major issues and feelings, just like real life. Beach Breeze is serious in story and big in heart and a book you will not want to miss! Another major hit!!
