"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"--… (mere)

This book actually developed all the women with their thoughts and personalities. Although somewhat predictable it does keep the story moving. Dr. Bonny has to deal with being the cause of a death in the ER, daughter needs to clean up her life, both which are nicely developed. Her friend Lainey is over obsessive about her mother’s death which was unreasonable for her husband. The bookshop is just a convenient place with Mimi as a unique judge of people. ( )

Nice change from war and murder. A bit predictable, but a good summer read! ( )

This isn't a review, only an explanation of why I didn't want to spend time finishing this book. Others may like it, but I am not in the mood to read about a mature, professional female doctor who is self-absorbed and angsting like a teenager. I will be fair, I only read to chapter 4, page 27. The doctor had a very traumatic and stressful night, seeing the brother of her dear friend, supposedly the man she had really loved all her life, come into the ER with severe injuries, then she possibly killed another patient by overdosing him with narcotics. When her shift is over, she goes home to her husband (whom she is planning to leave) and gets no joy. Then she goes back to the hospital to talk with the administrator. Finally, in the afternoon, she calls her beloved friend; one would think to tell her about her brother. But no. Instead she details all of her anxiety about her own marriage and possible mistake at the hospital. The friend finally asks her why she thought she made the horrible mistake on her shift and she responds, oh yeah, your brother was brought in severely injured, but I think he will be okay, I mean, the last time I saw or heard of this man I supposedly love with undying love was when he was being wheeled into emergency surgery, and oh I am so messed up by all my conflicting emotions. When the friend finally asks if her brother is okay "with a tinge of annoyance," (ya think?!) This caring and loving doctor says, "Owen?" Um, who else do you think your friend would be caring about? The dead guy?

Anyway, I meet enough self-absorbed people in life, I don't have the patience to read about them, not even if there is a "revelation" coming to them in the book. But hey, others might like this sort of drama. The book had some nice picturesque language about South Carolina, and there are some other people in it, too, so don't let me stop you. ( )

This was a nice, quick read, perfect for a day in the shade. It was hard to put down as I got tangled in the stories of Bonnie, Piper, and the others. It was a very good book and I would definitely recommend it to others. ( )
