My favorite kind of book is one where you can really lose yourself in the story, and that you just don't want to put down. This was one of those types of books! Loved the story, loved the characters, was sorry to see it end. :)
Good story. Shows that some families can come through for each other after devastating tragedies. Every person in the family was dealing with their own personal demons at the same time. Very good.
Another very good book by Sherryl Woods, but this book is slightly different from her other books. This book deals with a family getting their lives back together after the suicide of their father. It is also a love story. This book was hard to put down as I wanted to find out the reasons along with the famliy & friends.
Terrific story! My first book by this author and I'm on my way to order more!
Not a typical romance, very good story
This book talks about a family diner in Winter Cove, Florida. We really don't have coves in my area, just white sand beaches. There is a Winter Haven between Tampa and Orlando, but the story in this book has a strawberry festival and that is held in Plant City which is between Tampa and Lakeland, on the way to Orlando.
Some of the smaller family diners in this area have closed as the valuable land on which they sit makes them so attractive for real estate developers.
This book really does sound like small town Florida.
Fun. Snappy dialog, strong characters.
This was a good book and a great read. The back cover has a tear in it but it is still readable
Why would a well-respected and successful businessman with a charming and supportive wife and three children who love him suddenly take his own life? Winter Cove police chief Matt Atkins, who had spent many hours with Don Killian's family when his own disintegrated, is the man who finds him. Then, when Don's daughter, Emma, returns home to help her mother and younger brothers run the family restaurant, Matt realizes that the teen crush he had for Emma has not diminished over the years. She begs him to help her make sense of the nightmare the family is enduring, and he agrees--partly so he can see Emma, partly to repay the family for their generosity, and partly because he, too, is searching for answers about Don. During the course of this gripping, emotionally wrenching but satisfying tale, Woods deftly and realistically handles such issues as survival guilt, drug abuse as adolescent rebellion, and family dynamics when a vital member is suddenly gone.
Lots of unanswered questions with heart breaking revelations.
WELCOME TO Flamingo Diner where friends and family come first.
