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.
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.
