Now here she is all these years later rubbing shoulders with everyone who's anyone, a successful screenwriter in her own right with a summer blockbuster under her designer belt but there's still some of that insecure girl that Garrett plucked from the movie lot seven years earlier in her. The crowds, the parties, the faking it all - it's getting tiresome. When she sneaks away for some peace at a big event, she ends up seeing something that destroys her world instead - evidence that Garrett has been unfaithful.
With a leak to the press and depression setting in, Emma decides to flee somewhere she's never been before, somewhere simple where she can reconnect with the woman she was before Garrett - the kind of woman who didn't wear high heels or fancy dresses - and decide what parts of her life were real and whether she can go back to the life she used to have.
This is such a crazy emotional whirlwind of a book, generally in a dramatically good way for a reader. Emma very quickly goes from a starving student to having one of the world's most sought after actors at her feet.Read more ›
Emma is very likable and it is easy to see how such a nice girl gets wrapped up in the Hollywood lifestyle. She at least remains true to herself even though she does buy into the dream, which turns into a nightmare. Her journey of self discovery in nicely played with the background of surfing. I haven't read a book like this with such a unique twist. I have a feeling that the author used some personal experiences in the writing of this one since she married Billy Joel. I really enjoyed this one.

[This paragraph contains spoilers.]
For example, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Lily approached Emma to apologize, but we only heard of it in passing. And I don't feel like I got enough of what Emma and Garrett's marriage was like for seven years.
Overall, an enjoyable read!

Groundswell is a nice relaxing read, perfect for sitting on the beach. I enjoyed the characters and the story moved along to a satisfying finish.Published 15 months ago by JustJill
Great for an airplane or sitting at the beach or pool. Predictable, and a little too Harlequin Romance like, but some of the emotions hit home which bumped it up. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Suzanne
