From the outset I was asking myself what would I have done in Joanna's shoes and I'd like to think that I'd have been as welcoming, especially once the full details are revealed, but until you are in the same situation I don't think anyone really knows how they'd react. It also took guts for Ashley to take matters into her own hands even if the outcome ended in the most devastating of circumstances and left her feeling even more alone.
I loved the whole concept of escaping from the spotlight to a remote beach side house to come to terms with the way your life has been turned upside down. For Joanna it's a chance to re-evaluate her life after putting up with so much from her philandering ex-husband who she still worked with running the business side of things. What's in store for her now? Whereas for Ashley, it's a chance to come to terms with everything and decide what she wants to do next.
As for the setting, the Californian beach town of Silver Point sounded like the perfect place to run to for them to recuperate although for Joanna she also had some ghosts to lay to rest and friendships to repair having left the town so suddenly 20 years ago. But with the beach on your doorstep, and a vibrant community welcoming you with open arms, how could you not cast your demons and fears aside and make new plans for the future?
Friendships, old and new, are at the heart of this novel and it was great to see both Joanna and Ashley blossom as the story progressed. Both women had suffered greatly in the past and it's only over time that they can heal and move on.
I hope that this not the last that we see of Joanna, Ashley and the rest of the community of Silver Point even if it was just a catch-up novella at some point in the future.
I was actually a little sad that this book ended and this is very rare. It deserves all of its 5 stars and more for being so delightful, heartwarming and sunny. I liked the character development, the strength of the leading lady character and the second chance romance aspect. I definitely recommend this novel as a great holiday read!
Still not entirely sure that I like the style of chapters from a given character's viewpoint but it is a much easier read than when the author hops from head to head, paragraph by paragraph.
