Whisper Beach by Shelley Noble

Product Details I read this one for my GoodRead, s reading challenge - book from a summer reading list.   Well, all I can say is the truly best thing about this book is the cover.    I love beach reads, summer reads and usually spend the month of February reading a ton of them so that I can get a taste of the beach.   I was a little behind this year, having been sick, but I wanted to give this one a try. 

Sad.  That's all I can say.  It's the story of Van who left Whisper Beach suddenly and with a secret.  A funeral brings her back to face her past and come to terms with it.   I'm all about things coming to a conclusion so that a person can move on but this book was a little heavy.

When I read a book about the beach,  I have certain expectations.  I want the magic of feeling the water kiss my toes,  the wind on my face and the salt in the air.  I want a little romance and memories of my youth - happy ones.   In this book, even the beach was depressing with no one visiting it anymore.  If you are looking for a light hearted summer BEACH read, this book is not for you.   2 out of 5 stars.  While it is well written, it was just flat out depressing.  No thanks.
