Typical Luanne Rice: a story that sweeps you in with characters you feel like could live right down the street. She makes you care about their heartaches and joy. In this one Rumer's childhood best friend and almost lover is returning to town. The only problem is that he's also her ex-brother in law. You know where this is going the entire time, but it's a pleasant ride. Worth the time.

This is a story about childhood friends who reunite after one of them betrays the other. They find out that true love really does exist. An excellent book. For me, I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next.

Good story with great characters that work well together. The dialogue flows well, too.

This book was well worth my time & I enjoyed it while I was reading it. This is my first book by Luann Rice. Apparently, she uses the same Connecticut beach town as the setting for several of her books.

Once again Rice is right on with her tale of a woman who must cope with the dramatic return of a man from her past. The question is...do they regret the path not taken or do they come to terms with..you can't go home again.

I have now read everything Luanne Rice has written and I have to say that this one was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! I didn't want it to end! A wonderful story about the girl and boy next door growing up together in a beautiful setting of a seaside town in Connecticut. This story has it all! Love, sibling rivalry, betrayal, family ties, history... loved it!

An earnest and affecting portrait of life in the magical seaside town of Hubbards Point, Conn., Luanne Rice's True Blue finds childhood friends Rumer Larkin and Zeb Mayhew torn apart by a seemingly insurmountable betrayal Zeb married Rumer's older sister, Elizabeth, instead of her. Now, after a 20-year absence, a bitter divorce and a life-altering expedition aboard a space station, Zeb has returned to the Point seeking forgiveness and maybe something more. The themes of sisterhood and friendship that appear here are common threads in Rice's novels (Safe Harbor, etc.), as is the sense that there's an ethereal force guiding the lives of the Points inhabitants. With its graceful prose, full-bodied characters and atmospheric setting, this uplifting and enchanting tale is likely to become a beachside staple.

From back cover:

Veterinarian Rumer Larkin never felt the need to stray from Hubbard's Point. Rich with legends of seafaring spirits and lost treasures, the rustic village still echoes with the memories of Rumer's past--even after those she loved have left. But now, so many summers after Zeb Mayhew broke her heart, he has returned with his teenage son, and Rumer knows her quiet life will never be the same again.

Zeb has come back hoping to reconnect with his son, with the past and all its mistakes. Suddenly faced with Rumer again, Zeb discovers where he belongs. He could never forget the girl who used to climb onto his roof with him to watch the stars. But neither Zeb nor Rumer knows if it's too late to do more than regret the path not taken--or if every path leads back to the one true love of our life...
