I want to be like this stretch of freshly cleared shore. At times I think, I’m ready. Let the waves wash over me. But then I catch myself running from the tide just before it happens . . .

New York editor Jen Gibbs knew when she bought Evan Hall’s next blockbuster book, it would change her career. She didn’t know it wou

d professional lines and accepted Evan’s surprising engagement proposal. Now she’s scared to death. In Jen’s family, marriage represents the death of every dream a woman holds for herself.

Can the revelation of her mother’s long-held secret open the doors to Jen’s future and change her beliefs about life and love?

My Review

Inspiring, contemporary storyteller, Lisa Wingate returns with another installment of her addictive and charming, Carolina Series, set in the stunning coastal, Outer Banks, NC area – THE SAND CASTLE SISTER, (# 2.5) a short novella bridging the gap between The Story Keeper (#2) and upcoming, The Sea Keeper's Daughters (#3).

Having read all the books in this engaging series (once you read one, there is no stopping), I almost missed this one. I started reading The Sea Keeper’s Daughter, and realized there was another novella, so stopped to catch up.

If you have followed the saga of Jen and Evan, and the famous book, The Story Keeper — author and editor; while crossing the line between personal and professional, Jen agrees to the accompany Evan on the book tour—then the exciting engagement proposal.

However, is marriage what she really wants, or will the secrets from her past, keep her from her dreams, of the future?

As always, no one can tell a story like the gifted and talented Lisa Wingate!

From emotional, complex, and heartwarming; mixed with mystery, intrigue, suspense, romance—secrets, and much soul searching— she delves into the hearts, minds, and souls of her characters, pulling you into a magical and compelling world of hope, and dreams, while facing shocking revelations of the past, mistakes, and flaws --making them stronger for their journey.

Fans will love catching up with familiar characters, and new ones--setting the stage for the exciting upcoming, The Sea Keeper’s Daughters, coming Sept!
