Safe Haven

When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family

I haven’t done many book reviews lately because I feel like I am stuck into a rut…..a rut of reading “mediocre” books! So in addition to this review if you have any book suggestions for me….Bring em on! I picked up this book because it is Nicholas Sparks…..I mean a sure bet that it will be enjoyable and it did not disappoint. I will say that within 50 pages I was like ok I know where this is going but did that hinder my enjoyment? Not at all! The end was partly what I assumed but another part was a pleasant surprise! This was a quick read and I couldn’t put it down …… I just could not wait to find out what was going to happen next! So guys…..this is a perfect summer read that looks like it is set to become a movie in a few years according to imdb!

    Ohhh I'll have to check this one out! I'm currently reading Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner and it's really good so far! I'll do a book review when done, but all her books are great!

    I'm in a rut also! Everything I read I could put down half way through and not care. Which so is not like me at all. I might have to give Nicholas Sparks another try since you said you liked this one! Hope Book Club was fun!
