Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

New York PR exec Hannah Mathews is in remission from the same disease that claimed her mother's life months before: breast cancer. She heads south in an attempt to persuade her 85-year-old grandma, Jenny, to sell the Seaview Inn, the Florida Keys resort owned by her family for decades, and move into a retirement home. Spry and headstrong, Grandma Jenny isn't ready to be put out to pasture, intending to spruce up the inn and reopen for business. Hannah's daughter, Kelsey, turns up pregnant; she plans to drop out of college, live at Seaview and put her baby up for adoption. Surgeon Luke Stevens, Hannah's high school crush, shows up shortly thereafter, fresh from a stint in war-torn Iraq and carrying his own set of emotional baggage. A seasoned romance novelist of more than 100 titles, Woods is a master heartstring puller, and her endearingly flawed characters deal with their plethora of problems in a predictable but satisfying manner.

From Booklist

Hannah survives her mastectomy but wonders if she can survive her family. A single mother and high-powered New York public relations dynamo, she left tiny Seaview Key off the Florida coast after college and never looked back. Now she finds herself at the family inn trying to talk her 85-year-old grandmother into retiring after Hannah’s mother’s death from breast cancer. To make matters even more complicated, Hannah’s 20-year-old daughter leaves college and joins her because she is pregnant. What’s a woman do with such a mess? Why not take up with her high-school crush? Of course, Luke has his own problems. Injured in Iraq, he returns home to find that his wife has left him for his medical practice partner, and his young children treat him like a stranger. As Hannah and Luke learn to take each day one at a time as love and hope bloom, Woods imbues her characters with determination and humanity, deftly shedding light on real-life dramas. --Patty Engelmann

Hanna Mathews is one tough woman. She prides herself as being able to do it all. She has survived breast cancer and is a single mother with a daughter in college. But now things are getting to be too much.

Hanna recently lost her own mother to cancer. After her mother's death, she decides to go persuade Jenny, her eighty-five-year-old grandmother, to sell the Seaview Inn and go into a retirement home. She takes two weeks off work to go to Seaview Key. Then grandma talks her into doing renovations to the Inn. As if that's not enough work for her, she gets a call that her daughter is coming home from college-and she's pregnant.

One day Luke Stevens shows up at Seaview Key, and now Hanna has to deal with an old crush as well. Luke feels like the place was home twenty years ago and needs to be there to clear his head. But Luke has some issues as well. He was in Iraq, his wife left him for his best friend, his kids are mad at him for leaving, and he has a bum leg. While he is helping to do renovations at the Inn, he finds himself falling in love with Hanna as well as his old hometown.

Grandma Jenny might be old but she's feisty and sees things that others don't. She is having help to get the renovations done and the Inn up and running again. And with a little push maybe she can get two people to see things for what they are.

Hanna and Luke are learning it feels good to be home. People call you by your name and know you, unlike in the city where you are just another passerby. Plus there are the perks of the peace and quiet and those strolls on the beach-and don't forget the memories of sitting on the porch, enjoying the breeze and hanging out.

Luke and Hanna are trying to get their lives on track. The flirting has started and it could be love.

Armchair Interviews says: A sweet love story.

SEAVIEW INN by Sherryl Woods
Rating *** ½ (3.5/5 Stars)

April 12, 2008

This reviewer has wanted to read a book by Sherryl Woods for quite some time, and now got the chance to review SEAVIEW INN, Woods' latest novel for Harlequin's Mira imprint. A pleasant surprise, the story was filled with a number of interesting characters that shared nearly equally billing with the main character, Hannah Matthews. While in some novels too many characters can overwhelm a reader, in SEAVIEW INN there is no such problem. The length of the book allowed the author to create a number of vital characters that were pivotal to the plot without fashioning them into flat one-dimensional people whose only purpose was to add to the story line. Each character was as well rounded and real and absorbing enough to sustain interest for the reader.

SEAVIEW INN revolves around Hannah Matthews, a single mom who is in remission from breast cancer. Her mother had just died from the same disease, and it's not surprising that Hannah is a little scared, wondering if the cancer is going to reappear just like it did for her mother.

Besides dealing with cancer, Hannah needs to take care of her elderly grandmother. Grandma Jenny is getting on in years, and Hannah believes that Grandma needs to be placed into a home where people can look out for her. In the mean time, they need to sell the old Seaview Inn that has been in the family for generations. Grandma refuses to cooperate, and instead is trying to reopen the inn, to Hannah's frustration.

To complicate matters, Luke Stevens is back in town.

I was very disappointed in this book, because after I started reading it. It sounded familiar. Then I saw where it was originally published in 2008. It's a shame that Amazon or the publisher do no point this out to you before you buy it. It was a waste of money.

Sherryl Woods really cannot write a bad book. It would be so easy for her to rest on her laurels and coast for a few books, as many authors in her position have done (I won't name names; read my reviews!), but she never lets the reader down.

Seaview Inn is a charming story that on its face has been told many times in many books: Divorced mother of college daughter returns to her home town that she fled many years ago. College daughter, doing well at Stanford, suddenly takes a leave of absence from college for very emotional reasons. Grandmother wants to keep the inn that has been in her family for generations; daughter believes she should go in assisted living. Trouble Iraq War veteran comes to his birthplace to sort out his soul.

OK, if that were the plot and there was nothing more, I might have given this book a whirl--or maybe not, as I have read so many similar books. BUT... we have more to this story.

First, we have a poignant and realistic look at the anguish an adult child feels when her parent or grandparent can no longer continue in the life she loves. What should be done? Is assisted living the answer? Or is it unspeakably cruel? Next, we have a very realistic look at a recent breast cancer survivor who, having watched her own mother die of the disease, cannot believe in her own future. The terror is very real and beautifully described. And then we have the bitterness of a wounded war veteran who comes home to find that his wife has dropped him for his best friend.

It all sounds so very melodramatic, but it isn't--not when Sherryl Woods is writing the book! Her compassion, her honesty and her very real wisdom shine through on every page. I've already ordered the next in the series, and I can't wait to read it.
