Matt a professor at Princeton University, has taken a three month sabbatical and returned home to work on writing a book and to determine whether or not he wants to return to teaching. His other reason for returning again is to see Mira, a single mother with a six year old son. The woman who he has flirted with via text and only seen a couple of times since their initial meeting. A faulty showerhead brings them together again sooner rather than later and they are both quick to realise that their desire for each other runs deep.
What follows is a beautiful story of a friendship that is built on trust, respect and hot desire. Throw into the relationship a little six year old boy, Hagen, who will just absolutely win your heart over. I love that Melissa Foster was able to bring across the concerns of a single mum, embarking on a new relationship. But the show stealer in this relationship was definitely Hagen - I loved him to pieces, a typical six year old boy with lots of questions needing lots of answers. I loved the way that Matt ensured that Hagen was included in everything that was happening.
Not only do we have Matt, Mira and Hagen, but Melissa has also thrown in all those other wonderful Seaside characters that make these stories humourous and enjoyable. Serena, Mira's BFF, has the classic moment - Nair is for bare!!!! The Lacroux men certainly know how to make their women hot and needy and Matt has definitely followed inn his brothers' footsteps.
Even though this is the eighth book in this Seaside Summers Series, it can be read as a wonderful standalone. But if you want more details about the other characters mentioned in this book, I suggest that you go back and read the previous books, but it is not required that you do. Melissa Foster's books are written so that you can just pick them up at any time and just read your heart away.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to escape for a few hours, have a few laughs and fall in love with some very genuine characters.
FIVE very happy STARS from me.

Seaside Whispers is another of the long line of stories in the Melissa Foster series starring the group from Peaceful Harbor. This book brings back to town Matt Lacroux, brother of Grayson, Hunter, Peter and Sky, from his teaching position at a well-known university. Matt has been mentioned in a previous book as somewhat of a ‘superhero’ who happens to always be in the right place at the right time, as it continues to be in Seaside Whispers.
Mira Savage is a single mother to a pint-sized brainiac, who is possibly my favorite character in the book. Hagan’s father is no longer in the picture so as the story develops, Matt is free and clear to become a mentor first, then more of a father figure to Hagen. Mira also works for Matt’s dad in the Lacroux family hardware store.
While the story is sweet and I enjoyed the dynamics between Hagen and Matt, there was nothing that elevated it above any of the other books in the series. I liked the characters but at times they got overshadowed with the author’s attempts to include every character from every previous story in this one as well. I found myself interrupting my reading to try to remember how each one fit into the picture from the previous titles. It is fun to remember the others but there comes a point, after a significant number of books, where there are too many to include them all.
Overall, Seaside Whispers is a good book to read to round out the stories in the Seaside Summers series. You will be satisfied at the ending!
"'That's what love is. It changes everything you thought you knew about yourself.'"
Matt Lacroux has everything in his life mapped out. He's a professor at Princeton with a recent book deal and is working to become the dean of the School of Social Sciences. He spends a lot of his time researching, writing and grading papers but not a lot of time in his personal life. He decides to take a break and head back to Seaside where his father and brothers live to spend some time with them. Last summer, he had met Mira Savage, his father's hardworking employee at the hardware store, and single mother to amazing, smart, and energetic Hagen. Hagen is Mira's world and she will do anything to give him the best life she can but she is careful who she opens up to since she has her son to think about as well. Matt and Mira have been attracted to each other since they initially met and, with Matt spending three months at Seaside, they will have even more chances to see if they are meant to be together.
"'The moon and the sun and the stars were waiting for all the pieces of our lives to align. They trusted us to know when that time came.'"
I always love the Seaside Summers books because of the chunky-dunking girls and their cookie dough fetish and I love this series even more now because Melissa Foster created a character so warm and loving as Matt Lacroux! I'm a mom of almost four-year-old twins and, anytime a handsome man cares so much about a young child, it melts my heart and I fall for him, even if he is fictional. If you love Melissa Foster's books and have read the other Seaside Summers novels, I highly recommend Seaside Whispers! You don't have to read them in order but I think they make more sense if you do and you will get more out of the characters and their histories. Keep these Seaside books coming, Melissa Foster!
