Home to Seaview Key - Review

Home to Seaview Key by Sherryl Woods

Rating: 4 Stars

Description:  After her divorce Abby Miller just wants to go home to Seaview Key and stay under the radar for a little bit before trying to become part of her hometown community again.  When handsome paramedic Seth Landry rescues her from a near drowning the staying under the radar idea quickly disappears.  Soon Abby is trying to rebuild her relationship with former best friend Hannah which is made a little trickier because Hannah is married to Abby's ex-boyfriend as well as become part of Seaview Key again.  On top of everything she has to figure out what this growing attraction to Seth means.

Genre: Fiction

My Impression:  For some reason I was really prepared not to like this book but the best thing about something like that is the fantastic surprise when you find a book you really enjoy.  I loved this book.  I loved the characters, I loved the setting, I loved the plot and just found it a thoroughly enjoyable read. The characters weren't always perfect and frequently Hannah, Jenny or Kelsey did something that annoyed me but their actions were always understandable.  I always understood why they would've acted the way they did even if I didn't agree with it.  I loved Abby.  I love how practical and smart she is, I love how honest she is and I love how she handles adversity.  This is a good book in a beautiful setting with fantastic characters that seemed like real people and people you'd actually want to get coffee with.  I'm classifying this as fiction rather than a romance because I felt that while Seth and Abby's relationship was very important the book really revolved around Abby finding her home again.

Would I Read More of this Series/Author?: Yes

Would I Recommend this Book?:  Yes

    1. It definitely has a community feel that you go for but it's more Debbie Macomber than Jill Shalvis. The characters are in their 40s and it's 2nd time around for most. I think you'd like it but just keep in mind it's not the steamiest.
