From the book jacket: In a trade-off she’s lived to regret, Emily Castle left home years ago to become an interior designer. The youngest of three sisters, Emily desperately wanted to prove herself. Success, though, came at the cost of leaving behind the man she loved. For Boone Dorsett, losing Emily left his heart shattered, but another woman was waiting in the wings. Now a widower with a young son, Boone has a second chance with Emily when a storm brings her home. But with his former in-laws threatening a custody suit, the stakes of loving her are higher than ever.

My reactions
I’ve never read anything by Sheryl Woods before, but this seemed to fit the bill for a “beach reads” challenge.

It’s a pretty formulaic plot: long-lost lovers reconnect, but there are complications keeping them apart, they jump to conclusions and have fights over their mutual misunderstandings. But hot kisses seem to solve everything and remind them how much they mean to one another. I really didn’t care about any of the drama because I didn’t really care about these characters. Emily seemed like a hot mess.

I thought it was overly complicated and there are several threads that are just left hanging. But I suppose Woods did this to ensure a repeat audience for books two and three in the trilogy. Apparently, each book focuses on a different one of the Castle sisters. If I had read the blurb I might have saved myself some time. Just typing it out, makes me realize just how melodramatic and “wrought” the plot sounds. Ah well, it was a fast read.

Shannon McManus did a fine job narrating. Too bad she didn’t have better material to perform. ( )

A nice feel good story with no real drama. Enjoyed the interaction between sisters with their concerns for each other. Emily leaves her boyfriend for a career and I do not think she really missed Boone all that much. It is more because she has no one that she listens to her Grandmother Cora Jane who has a fun, workaholic, but busybody personality. Boone is the one you feel for because he admits to loving Emily more than he truly did his deceased wife. Son BJ acted older than he should but was a nice added touch. Actually thought Emily was going to win over the distressed mother-in-law and make them more her family. Hope that the last book will have more about the in-law conflict when the wedding occurs and her sisters get their stories. ( )

4.5 stars. Fans of second chance at love stories are going to love Sand Castle Bay, the first installment in Sherryl Woods Ocean Breeze series. Strong family ties and lovable characters add to this wonderful novel’s appeal. Please click HERE to read my review in its entirety. ( )

I really enjoyed this book! I read it in two days (which is unheard of for me). I can't wait to read the others in this series. ( )

Emily Castle left Sand Castle Bay ten years ago leaving her sweetheart Boone behind. Boone married and has a son, B.J., but now his wife has died as Emily returns to help her grandmother after a hurricane.
I found Boone to be a great hero, handsome, hard-working, kind, and trying hard to be a good father while consumed with guilt about his wife. BJ is a sweetie though I had some trouble with his insta-attachment to Emily.
Emily, however, is one of the most unlikeable heroines I've ever read in a romance. She is snide, uncaring (except for the sex Boone gives her - she whines about it a lot), and has few redeeming characteristics. She left and never contacted Boone again, but is upset that he got married. Now that she's back, she expects him to cater to her career and wishes, ignoring the fact that he has a son. Even her interactions with BJ were all about her career and shopping, nothing that an eight year old boy would enjoy though the author seems to think that BJ would rather do this than hang out with his friends. The author seems to think that by having Emily do pro bono work in Los Angeles for a women's shelter instead of her rich clients that this would redeem her, but Emily just uses it as an excuse for not being with Boone and BJ except when she flies in for a night of sex. Why can't she work on homeless shelters in North Carolina and not uproot BJ? Ugh!
Neither of her two sisters interested me either for many of the same reasons though both their love interests seem to be nice guys so I'll be skipping the rest of the series. ( )
