A little point: for me , that seagulls who always wake up Parish? For me is Justin , his son, who always was there to take care of his Dad , his soul leaves whe he can see Parish was better and have a beatiful family at his side.
Parrish is drowning in his grief five years after his son’s brutal death. A total recluse, he spends his days drinking and smoking when he’s not writing his detective series. He doesn’t even know that his next-door neighbors have died until a forced interaction with their son’s aunt, who is now Sam’s guardian. Little by little, Scarlett and Sam being Parrish out of the black hole he’s been existing in. And along they way, he helps her navigate parenthood and helps Sam grieve his parents.
There are so many sweet moments between Sam and Parrish. He expertly walks the fine line of being a friend and mentor with the young boy. And Sam brings out the paternal feelings in Parrish that he long ago buried. The romance between Parrish and Scarlett is equally sweet. It develops organically from a mutual attraction to something so much deeper.
On that beach one winter, three lost souls come together, healing one another, showing one another a way out of the darkened, and letting each other know that it’s okay to sometimes just talk to the waves when you don’t want to talk to people. The waves always listen.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

The Beach in Winter by Leslie Pike was a great surprise. Leslie was able to show us her versatility as a writer in this stunningly moving story about loss, grief, tragedy and second chances. This is a must read!
I could not get enough of this story and found that I would read it whenever I had the chance. Even if it was eating dinner or jogging on the treadmill, I did not put my kindle down because I needed to know what was going to happen in the story. This was an incredible beautiful and heartbreaking story that really explored the grief that individuals experience while finding comfort with each other. The writer did an incredible job with this story as it really resonated with me. The emotions really flowed through the words throughout the story creating an emotional read.
Scarlett was an incredible strong character that experienced a great lost but it showed how strong she was when she took on the responsibility of her nephew. I really loved the way that she was there for Parish and didn't push Parish when things got too hard for him. I found that was incredible caring and patient in regards to her nephew despite being thrown into uncharted territory.
Parish my heart complete broke throughout the story over the lost that he experience and the pain he constantly carries around with him each day. I found that despite the pain he carries around with him, he is still there for Scarlett and her nephew during their grief and help them through some vital times in their life. I really loved Parish and found he was perfect for this story,
Leslie Pike has written this story beautifully and really ribbons the feelings with this story. I loved the characters and the way that they interact with each other. I honestly could not get enough of this story and found myself thinking about these characters well after i finished reading the story. I definitely recommend this story
