Summer by the Tides - Denise Hunter

Synopsis: Maddy and her older sisters rush to their grandmother's beachfront cottage after her neighbor calls to report her missing. Each has troubles of their own to add to the distressing situation. Connor's concern for his neighbor turns into a struggle to finally move on after his wife's death and admit his attraction to the girl next door. With lots of decades old baggage, and a closet full of family secrets, the sisters spend their days cleaning out the cottage and healing old wounds.

Review: I don't think Denise Hunter is capable of writing a bad book. That said, it seems she's taken it as a personal challenge to pile on as much strife and turmoil as one could imagine and then add a couple more doozies just for good measure. One truly has to suspend belief to accept all that happens to these poor sisters. Remarkably, they somehow manage to face them all and come out all the better in the end. Truly, the story is a good one and certainly Maddy and Connor are awesome together. Their chemistry is perfect and you just love to watch them fall in love. The faith element is much more natural in this book than some of her more recent ones. It's not doctrinally heavy or preachy but is a reflection of the characters and their own relationship with God. A good clean contemporary romance that's a great summer (or anytime) read.
