The Cottages on Silver Beach

Summary: Years after betraying her, he’s back in Haven Point…and ready to learn the truth.

Megan Hamilton never really liked Elliot Bailey. He turned his back on her family when they needed him the most and it almost tore them all apart. So she’s shocked when Elliot arrives at her family’s inn, needing a place to stay and asking questions that dredge up the past. Megan will rent him a cottage, but that’s where it ends—no matter how gorgeous Elliot has become.

Coming back home to Haven Point was the last thing bestselling writer Elliot Bailey thought he’d ever do. But the book he’s writing now is his most personal one yet and it’s drawn him back to the woman he can’t get out of his mind. Seeing Megan again is harder than he expected and it brings up feelings he’d thought were long buried. Could this be his chance to win over his first love?

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

RaeAnne Thayne’s book covers make me dream of moving to Haven Point. Of packing up and moving to this picturesque place.

I love the area of Haven Point. I love the covers.

BUT….

I don’t always LOVE the stories. They are perfectly readable. They have some romance, a little mystery or intrigue and a huge cast of characters.

And maybe that is the problem- the characters, while not all related, are def in each other’s orbit. It’s like watching day 5 million of Days of Our Lives and not understanding all the in and outs of the Horton/Brady families.

I think I picked this series back up around book 3 and kept telling myself that I would read book 1 and 2 (but let’s be honest- with as many new books as there are- I probably won’t.) So I struggle keeping up with family names and characters and then I forget them as soon as the book ends and have to re-remind myself at each new book. It’s a vicious cycle.

 

What I liked:

COVER!!!! SO. DARN. PERFECT.

How Megan did what was right for her family and not just her. Megan had big dreams and I can understand that. But sometimes those big dreams change a bit- if given some time for a big picture and you find that you are basically living your dream- even if you didn’t know it at the time.

How protective Megan was of her brother. That’s a good sister there!

 

Bottom line: For me, this provided some easy reading by the pool, but if I decide to read next book- I’m drawing out a family tree of characters and how they relate to one another.
