This was my first Susan Wiggs novel. It was awesome. Character development was top notch. I found myself not wanting to put the book down and when I turned to the last page, I didn't want the story to end. It's captivating and beautiful ~ A story of what you thought you loved was not really your 'true' love and learning how to grow from that and finding what the future holds is not what you thought it would be like. I gave this book 5 stars.

Sometimes the love you think you have is only a sham - when you take a closer look. What then? Wall yourself in and never love again because of the hurt? Susan Wiggs takes you on a jouney of love lost and love found. Not a new journey, but a fresh, new approach which makes for a delightful read.

Wow! Talk about a waste of time. Poorly written, character development was childish, storyline was ridiculously predictable. Would not recommend.

A very sweet romance, soothing to the soul. Funny and heartbreaking at the same time. Susan Wiggs is a master at blending emotion.

Sarah Moon has caught her cheating husband "in the act" - not missing the irony of his infidelity occurring at the same moment she is undergoing fertility treatments because he is "unable" to give her the child she so desperately wants. She flees to the comfort of the same small California coastal town she couldn't wait to leave as a teen.

Sarah, a cartoonist, chronicles her struggles through her strip, "Just Breathe" and finds that sometimes, that really is the best advice of all. Just breathe.

Sarah and Jack were first introduced in "Dockside" as visitors to the Willow Lake Inn in Greg and Nina's story. There, Jack and Sarah tried to reconnect after Jack's recovery from cancer. Oddly that one little scene in "Dockside" was a great glimpse at the their trouble marriage where Sarah was more like a mom and Jack like a child than husband and wife.

As Sarah tried to rebuild her life and career, I liked the fact that she starts to see her part in the divorce. No, it wasn't her fault Jack cheated but she did play a part in the relationship falling apart. She does a lot of growing and self-searching as well as reconnecting with her family.

It is very predictable. There were parts that weren't written very smoothly but I found myself enjoying the book. I wished more time was spent on catching the firebug though. It was a nice, slow read.
