Sometimes, when you need a change in your life, the tide just happens to pull you in the right direction…

Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she's made over the past decade of her life. Julia--whose caustic wit covers up her wounds--has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can't hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life. And Dorie has just been shockingly betrayed by the man she loved and trusted the most in the world…though this is just the tip of the iceberg of her problems and secrets. A month in North Carolina's Outer Banks is just what they each of them needs.

Ty Bazemore is their landlord, though he's hanging on to the rambling old beach house by a thin thread. After an inauspicious first meeting with Ellis, the two find themselves disturbingly attracted to one another, even as Ty is about to lose everything he's ever cared about.

Maryn Shackleford is a stranger, and a woman on the run. Maryn needs just a few things in life: no questions, a good hiding place, and a new identity. Ellis, Julia, and Dorie can provide what Maryn wants; can they also provide what she needs?

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Janel | 2/6/2014

    " An easy going, light read filled with lots of girl talk, a romance, and some suspense all taking place with a beach atmosphere. Not the type of book that is impossible to put down, but a comfortable "brain vacation" of a book. I wasn't crazy about some of the female characters, finding them a little irritating here and there. I really enjoyed the romance between one of the girls, Ellis and the cute guy who owned the rental the friends were staying at. All in all I really liked it, but enjoyed Mary Kay's Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze better. A fun book with a great beach backdrop and happy ending. "

    " This book is wonderful!! I loved it! The woman had been friends in school and it was so fun finding out how much they had changed and again how much they stayed the same. The relationships that they had with one another and with the men in their lives. "
