    " This book was a quick, easy read, just what I was looking for. But it wasn't anything memorable (in my mind) so that is why I am giving it just 3 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 2/10/2014

    " Finished 5-28-09- Ms Frank can weave a story! If you love the beach, extended family, with a dash of humor and a good cry...her books are for you. Set in the lowcountry outside Charleston her stories are breezy, fun, and heartwarming. Anna Abbott is in her late thirties and finally getting a chance to be on her own. Hers is the story of a mature woman who sets out on an adventure of discovery and finds it with the help of family and friends. It was a great read. "

    " Great Summer read...especially if you live in the low country "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Babs | 1/26/2014

    " This book was just not my cup of tea. I could almost hear fingernails on a chalkboard as I was trying to read it. All of Anna's whining and angst was just too much for me. After reading Pawley's Island by the author, I was so hopeful I'd found another good southern writer. Oh well... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 1/24/2014

    " Again so excited to read her new books but this one truly did not live up to my expectation.It had Lucy,the neighbor, the rebellious daughter, the gay husband, but it never took you anywhere.Some cute dialogue but I found it was just too shallow.Also right when they found her real father the book ended. No other mention of him.Least favorite of all her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 1/19/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joycebrosnahan | 1/18/2014

    " Interesting book- I read it prior to going to Florida beach, so it was a good read. It was about a whimsical, unorthodox heroine. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Lewis | 1/18/2014

    " I was told that if I like Janet Evanovich than I needed to try this author. This was a cute book, but I didn't laugh even once. I'm going to try another of her books because although I didn't laugh the book had a good (pretty clean) story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/16/2014

    " I am from South Carolina and I love the low country. These books take me back there and it makes me happy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 English | 1/16/2014

    " I liked this one the most out of all the DBF books I've read. Just the right amount of plot twists, enjoyable characters, and interesting storylines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/10/2014

    " Great summer beach read about a woman standing on her own 2 feet after a very long time. A feel good kind of story that is a fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/9/2014

    " Recommended by my mother because I've been depressed lately. this was definitely a good choice. Makes me want to move to Charleston like I've wanted to for years. Nice characters and a fun read. "

    " Dorothea Benton Frank is one of my favorite authors. I liked this book a lot. I am looking forward to her latest book being released in June called "Porch Lights". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kylie P | 12/6/2013

    " This was my least favorite of the three I read of hers. I think Sullivan's Island was the best, it had such great humor that the others only partially re-created. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 T | 12/4/2013

    " One of Dorothea's best. Read it! "

    " This book was good! Made me laugh and learn about not sweating the small stuff and reaching for your dreams. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 10/30/2012

    " Entertaining. Very readable. Some Gullah language included. Plot was predictable and characters true to stereotypes. That said, it was a "good read." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 10/1/2012

    " I read this while I was vacationing on Isle of Palms. It was cool to read about a place on the island and then go check it out. All of Benton Frank's books make you slow down a little and appreciate the little things - a nice breeze, a strong drink, friendships. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 9/24/2012

    " LOVED all of her books - there's a whole series of different parts of the low-country "
