by Kerry Lonsdale

I’m so thrilled that I received an early copy of this book to read and review. I loved this book! Devoured it in one weekend because I had a hard time putting it down.

It covers so many themes, such as regret, fear, loss, forgiveness, acceptance, family and hope. I don’t want to give too much away but it is a little genre bending. It combines mystery, romance, and a touch of magical realism all at once. I really enjoyed the mother-daughter bond, as well as the other relationships covered. I found myself on the edge of my seat at times wondering what would happen, hoping the outcome would be to my liking. The twists and turns of the book mimic the waves referenced in the book as you feel like you are bobbing, surfing and swimming, waiting to reach shore, rooting for the characters the entire time.

Bravo! Now I can’t wait to get my hands on Lonsdale’s debut novel published earlier in 2016, Everything We Keep.
