This book was harmless enough But I have two quarrels with it The framework premise of the story was a good hook about the rental house and The Guest Book However, the characterization of the main character was so unrealistic First, I am not sure any woman would allow some guy to move into her house after he got her pregnant and abandoned her through the birth of her child and the next five years Then suddenly, this woman who has not had a date in five years, has the old boyfriend wanting to rekindle the magic and the next three guys she meets are employed, competent, funny AND handsome and all three are interested in her on first sight REALLY It just stretched credulity Not many layers to this novel but it turned out to be than I d expected A pretty normal family widowed mom, single son struggling to find his niche, single mom daughter just struggling, and her adorable little daughter sets out to face their future, at last, by returning to their past, a beach house they d rented for years before the father s death They all find that future, or at least a pathway to it, with the primary story being that of the single mom Perhaps the surfeit of eligible men, after five years of no men in her life, stretches belief a bit, but it moves the story and its plotline of growth right along In the end, they all find Godand the answers he has provided. This seemed like a fun plot since I ve left a few doodles in guest books myself In the end, I was pretty underwhelmed by the book Macy s family is stuck living in the past and still unable to move on after ten years, and I found that pretty annoying Macy herself came across as quite shallow and overly dramatic, like an insulated young teen than a grown woman with a child I didn t realize until part way into it that the book is categorized as Christian fiction, but the Christianity is not heavy handed In fact, I would venture a guess to say that readers looking specifically for Christian fiction would be disappointed in this book I chose this from looking for an easy summer read, so I guess it fit that bill But in the end, I just didn t really care about any of the characters. Another great beach read by Marybeth Whalen I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed her first two novels, The Mailbox and She Makes It Look Easy Great story, characters and settinglove how Marybeth winds faith as well as music into her books It s like hearing the soundtrack playing while you are reading along with the sounds of the ocean blending in for that perfect beach read. This was a very sweet story with surprising twists and turns I recommend it
Sunday School StoryJust not a story I enjoyed Extremely spiritual on a very simplistic level Plot just dragged on Found myself skipping entire passages. Ordered the wrong Guest Book Started to read and kept wondering why I ordered it I finally figured I meant to order the one by Sarah Blake Did something I rarely do I closed the book and have no intention of finishing Sooo predictable Only read about 61 pages, but I bet I know exactly how it will end Not for me.
