I saw the review once, and now cannot think of the title to save my life. I believe it was something like "a home by the sea", but I could very well be mistaken. It was about a husband and wife that moved to a tropical island to start over again. I believe the cover was a aqua blue with shells or an island scene on it. This would have been written in the past 3-4 years? If anyone can think of it, please let me know! I know it's a long shot!

This sounds like a good book! I hope you find out what it is and post it here, so I can read it too!

That does sound good! It's not available on this site yet but I went to ebay and found several for pretty cheap and ordered one.

Is the title A Year by The Sea: Thoughts of an Unfinished Woman by Joan Anderson? As I type this, there is at least 1 copy available.

It could be one of these two books

A TRIP TO THE BEACH- MELINDA BLANCHARD AND ROBERT BLANCHARD  ISBN:0609606948

    or

AN EMBARRASMENT OF MANGOS-ANN VANDERHOOF ISBN:9780767914277

 

I have the first one and am not willing to part with it (sorry) and the second one has been on my wishlist for some time.  Hope this helps!
