Dr. Ellen Markowitz has learned the hard way that nothing is quite the way it seems-not family and certainly not love. But during one magical summer, she will discover that hope and love can sneak back into your heart when you least expect it.

If home is where the heart is, then Ellen Markowitz might as well se up house in the delivery room of Shelter Rock Cove General. She loves being an OB-GYNB and she's fallen hard for the charming village where she's lived for the last three years. That's not the only thing she's fallen hard for,,,

I have enjoyed everything I have read by Barbara Bretton. Her characters are believable, and when you are done reading the story, you feel like you know the characters. This is a story of self-discovery and reconnecting with family. I loved it. It's a great read.

From Amazon:

Skillfully evoking the cozy but claustrophobic atmosphere of Shelter Rock Cove, Maine, Bretton's sequel to A Soft Place to Fall (2001) tackles the familiar topics of renewal, friendship and familial bonds. The story opens the morning after Ob-Gyn Ellen Markowitz spends the night with her senior partner, Dr. Hall Talbot, a three-time divorcee and father of four. Instead of bringing the couple more tightly together, however, that night-particularly the point when Hall utters the name of his long-ago love, Annie-pushes them farther apart. Certain that Hall still carries a torch for Annie, Ellen tries to ignore her attraction to him. But unbeknownst to her and the nosy townspeople, Hall has been over Annie for some time. He just doesn't know how to convince Ellen of this truth. Then Ellen's half-sister Deirdre shows up with a dog the size of a small bear, needing a place to park him for the summer. Their complicated kinship adds another dimension to the story, as do vibrant secondary characters like Hall's best friend Susan and Scott, the laconic mechanic who fixes Deirdre's car and serves as her love interest. The denouement comes too soon, partly because the various story lines are tied up too easily but mostly because this is a book readers will want to savor.

Good Beach book. A little damage on the back cover from the sand!
