The early reviews for THE BOOKSTORE ON THE BEACH are in! Not only got it a starred review from Publishers’ Weekly, it has also been selected as one of the best books of the month by Amazon AND Apple Books. I think the review written by the editor at Apple is my favorite so far:
“With more than 60 novels to her name, Brenda Novak knows her way around a juicy family drama, and her latest delivers exactly that. Still reeling from her husband’s sudden disappearance more than a year ago, Autumn brings her two teenage children to stay with her mother in her seaside hometown. This homecoming sets the stage for the rekindling of a high-school romance and the slow reveal of a devastating, long-held secret—not to mention a slew of other great twists. As Novak’s relatable cast of characters fall in love and navigate a range of serious issues, she presents their stories with an abundance of heart and humor. THE BOOKSTORE ON THE BEACH is an escapist treat with emotional heft.”
