I want to assure you that this is a delightful read, populated with well-drawn, believable characters, easy to love(or hate!), and compelling enough to have you rooting for them to succeed. The plot engages you from the very first page, and while not as complex as some of Ms. St. Claire's suspense titles, there are enough twists and turns to keep you turning pages well into the night. Despite the fact that I had an early start at work the following day, I couldn't put the book down until I finished it at 1:15 a. m.
Lacey's journey from post-hurricane total destruction to the realization of her dream is one filled with self-discovery and perseverance - and a new-found confidence in herself that her accidental architect, Clay is instrumental in supporting. While her teen-aged daughter bemoans the loss of all her 'stuff', Lacey knows, and tries to show her, that it's the people who are important. Meanwhile her three best friends provided some nudges of their own and made me wish the next installment in this series would be out next week.
Nice to know Roxanne St. Claire can write a fast-paced, yet very charming tale that doesn't require security specialists or dead bodies to keep you turning the pages.
Barefoot in the Sand is where we meet Lacey, Jocelyn, Zoe, and Tessa. They have been best friends since college. They all come together after a hurricane tares through Barefoot Bay. Very devastating event leaving Lacey and her daughter homeless, but willing to make a dream come true. The friends pull together to help Lacey make these dreams a reality.
Clay Walker sees an opportunity to get the experience he needs to make his dream of being an architect come true. All he needs is a chance to prove himself. He might be able to get that chance with Lacey.
As I said I liked this book. I think a lot has to do with the story really reminded me of my friends life in so many ways. I think when you can relate to a story, it makes the story better. There's a lot of layers that go into this book, so a person may get overwhelm with all the information present. However, I think all the layers really make the story a little more real. Sometimes life isn't like a cookie cutter where every cookie is perfect. Even they we may want it to be, but that would be just boring.
I really like the different relationships that are in this story and they really make the story come to life. We have the relationship with Lacey and her friends, Lacey and Clay, Lacey with her daughter, and Lacey with her ex-boyfriend. These relationships make the foundation of the story. Plus, in one way or another they intergrade with one another. Real life relationships tend to intergrade with one another and this is the reason I really liked this story.
The bottom line is: It's a pretty darn good book. Really worth the read to see how friends pull together when the going gets tough. I can't wait to read the other girls stories (except Jocelyn since I have already her story). If you are looking for some beach time and no where near a beach, you might want to checkout Barefoot in the Sand.
