On a secluded beach in North Carolina, three lonely people find hope in each other. Trish Evers is an artist and single mother, who has inherited her grandmother's Bed and Breakfast in a North Carolina coastal town. Though she must sell the house, she decides to bring her daughter to the beach for one last summer vacation in her childhood town. Bella is a six-year-old girl who has Down syndrome. Rejected by her father, Trish, is the only parent she's ever known. Bella likes to explore the beach and has a tendency to wander off. One day, Bella goes exploring on her own, and Trish finds her in the company of an intriguing stranger. Dan Conway is a U.S. Marine, who had been born into a family of Marines. Now blind as a result of combat injuries and unable to "suit up," he feels he no longer has a purpose in life. He's come home to the beach, where he spends his days in solitude. Dan must learn to believe in himself and to love life again, which he begins to do through his interactions with Bella and Trish. When a hurricane strikes, and Bella wanders off again, her only hope for rescue is Dan. Working within the confines of his blindness, he must overcome his fear of failure and recall his training in order to search for the little girl and bring her to safety.

I have so much to say about this book but most of it is how much I love it! It is extremely amazingly written. I loved this book as soon as I heard what it was about i was all for it. I started it and I found it difficult to stop when i needed to go work. I love the pot castles sounds so cute. And the dynamics between the characters. The instant pull of all of them. Making them closer. It was amazing. There is so much chemistry and wow. I just.. I'm speechless this is an amazing romance novel! I want more!! I am so glad I got the honor to review this book! If it comes out in paperback i'm buying it!!! I don't know what else to say if you like romance but don't want the sex scenes this is the book for you. It is so touching and the twists are beautiful. You know right away what characters you want to hate and those you just need to love. I could just gush about this book but I think you would rather go buy it! Also, it is a quick read. This book also brings a lot of perspective to things. OK! Thats it no more. I can't keep gushing about this book. I need to be stopped! =]
Wait on more thing. Thank you Kate for asking me to review this book. It was truly amazing!

I enjoyed this review. The book seems like it would appeal to most readers.

PS Please stop over at my blog, I'm having a giveaway for "The Lincoln Lawyer." It's a hard cover first edition so I want to have lots of people get a chance.
I'm celebrating because I just signed the contract to have my first novel published.
