WOW! Again, another book written by this awesome author. I cannot believe I've never read her books before. (just finished Colony, last week).

Anne has a way of making you feel like you are part of the story. The characters/situations are realistic. This is a story that starts in the 50's, four girls coming together at a college, there experiences, loves, betrayal, frienship, they go their separate ways only to return to each other 30 years later. Again, a very climatic ending! Lots of twists and turns and we can all find a little bit of ourselves in the female characters.


A must read!

I have always enjoyed her books, and Outer Banks is one of my favourites! She has a new book, Off  Season, coming out in a few days and I am #1 on the wishlist and can't wait to read it.

I also recommend her books Islands, Up Island, and Low Country.

"Outer Banks" is the first ARS book I read and I was hooked!  I absolutely loved it and eagerly collected more of her books.  I think I have them all now and can't wait for more.  I liked them all, but the books that stood out for me were:

King's Oak, Colony, Hill Towns, and my no. 1 fave by her, Downtown.
