Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: Callie Weaver and best friend Olivia Dixon have finally done it: put their life savings into the beach house they admired through childhood summers, on the dazzling white sand of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. They’re going to buff the salt from its windows, paint its sun-bleached sidings, and open it as a bed and breakfast. Callie’s too busy to think about her love life, but when she catches the attention of local heartthrob Luke Sullivan, his blue eyes and easy smile make it hard to say no. He’s heir to his father’s property empire, and the papers say he’s just another playboy, but as they laugh in the ocean waves, Callie realizes there’s more to this man than money and good looks. Just when true happiness seems within reach, Callie and Olivia find a diary full of secrets... secrets that stretch across the island, and have the power to turn lives upside down. As Callie reads, she unravels a mystery that makes her heart drop through the floor. Will Callie and Luke be pulled apart by the storm it unleashes, or can true love save them?
My Review: This was an adorable, fun summer read that will be perfect for reading on the beach this summer. The characters are likeable, and easy to connect with and the romance is exciting and sweet at the same time. I loved the Outer Banks settings and the renovations on the beach house were fun to read about. There was also a little mystery and some family drama that added intrigue to the plot. Overall I really enjoyed this book and think most people will also enjoy this fun beachy read!
