Couldn’t put it down.
I need to move to Oak Island. The author has painted the perfect small town. I swear I could smell the ocean. I want to sit in the sand and watch the hunky surfers. I want to shop in all of the darling boutiques and art galleries. I want to live in one of their quaint beach cottages. Most of all I want to be considered a native. I wanted to be accepted with open arms like Everleigh's friend, Nyla.
Nyla moves to Oak Island to mend a broken heart. After divorcing Miles; she immersed herself in her job. Unfortunately, spending all of her waking hours at a Boston ER wasn't doing the trick.
She takes a gamble and follows Everleigh to Oak Island. She finds peace sharing a medical practice with Everleigh. It is time to pick up the pieces and begin again. It is time to finally say goodbye to Miles.
Cohen has perfect timing. He bumps into Nyla at a diner and they just click. He has become the town hero, saving Freddy's Surf Shop. Now he wants to save Nyla. Get ready to be swept off your feet as Cohen works his magic. He knows what he wants and he wants Nyla. Heart palpitations.
The story gets really interesting when Nyla bumps into Miles. He is the last person she expected to see in Oak Island. Nyla soon finds herself stuck in an awkward situation--wanting two men. This is one love triangle with lots and lots of drama. I am so happy I wasn't in Nyla's position although it made for a great read. Her life became very interesting. I loved living vicariously through Nyla, it never got boring.
Oh my goodness! I can't believe what happened. Chapter after chapter; I found myself shocked into silence. I couldn't wait to turn the page to see what happened next. The unexpected left me speechless. I have to admit I just didn't see it coming. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat. The last few chapters were real nail biters. The author completely pulled the story out from under me.
Nyla has to jump through a lot of hoops to get her happily ever after. I wasn't sure it would happen. The happily ever after in Beginnings by the Sea is one I won't soon forget.
