The Bridge Tender A Sunset Beach Series Novel By Marybeth Whalen Review
Emily must realize that her dreams didn't have to die with her first love. When Emily Shaw, a young widow, learns that her late husband's last surprise for her involves returning to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to realize an old dream of theirs, she reluctantly embarks on a summer of discovery in the midst of grief. There, in the oasis of the beach community, she meets a host of townspeople with their own broken dreams and unexpected situations. As the island citizens divide over the fate of a nostalgic bridge, Emily happens upon a man who just may be the one to restore her faith in dreams, hope, and possibly love.
Cassandra's Review- Enchanting old dreams and a fun spin of life for Emily. This book makes all kinds of emotions surface in a good way and I loved taking the time to get to know the characters. I would recommend this book for adults as I think they would connect more.
