Add on Goodreads
Blair is determined to stay on course. Her reporting career is waiting for her if she can just make it through summer on the island.
Justyn knows not to get attached to tourist girls breezing through town for only a season.
Maggie wants to cherish her last few months of summer freedom. So what if she has to keep a tiny secret to make sure everyone around her stays happy?
Reid doesn’t have time for romance. His new business must succeed, no matter the cost.
This summer everything is about to change. All those carefully laid plans might shift faster than the tides.
When these four start spending time together, the island nights get hotter than the sun-drenched days. Trying to stay untangled and unattached is easier said than done when the one thing you want is standing right in front of you.
I had signed up for this book in hopes of it being a sweet fun contemporary with more mature characters. But I found the book okay. I had trouble connecting with the characters, sadly. I love the idea of house-sitting and spending the summer in a whole new place. I think the characters were unbelievable though with their attraction towards each other. I think I liked them somewhat individually but not really.
I felt the writing was a bit rushed for me to really believe what ever they felt. And also the way--- I guess I have seen this all in other novels so maybe didn't really connect with them like I have with those other novels.
I don't really have anything else to say. I guess I would have liked the book more if it had been fun and had it felt natural. It felt like the characters were trying too hard to fit into their stereotype characters, you know, in contemporary beachy novels.
I cant really explain what felt off for me but I am sorry I didn't enjoy this book.
Thank you to the authors and publisher for this review copy.
T.A. Foster is Southern girl whose heart and spirit are connected to the beach. She grew up catching rays and chasing waves along the North Carolina Outer Banks and now resides in the state with her adventurous pilot husband, two children, and two canine kiddos.
She has an undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a graduate degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University.
Mary-Kathryn Craft spent her childhood summers vacationing on Harkers Island, North Carolina. There she fell in love with the Cape Lookout beaches and learned about the power of a good story from the island old-timers.
With degrees in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of South Carolina, she now works in public relations in Columbia, South Carolina with her husband, daughter, and shiba inu.
Written in the Sand is more than fifteen years in the making. Tucked away in boxes and buried deep on hard drives, pieces of Maggie and Blair’s story sat untouched for years before the authors rediscovered the work in progress. They knew it was time to revisit the island and give Maggie, Blair, Justyn, and Reid a summer to remember.
