    Isle of Palms, turtle rescue, tragedy, recovery, and complicated family dynamics combine to make Mary Alice Monroe's newest a true gem. The bonds of friends, family, neighbors, and generations take center stage in Cara and Linnea's story. Both have lessons to learn and lessons to deliver. Past pain need not be the predictor of a painful future. We all have the ability to change old habits, choose new paths, and forge the future into something bey...

    Good summer read. Read this in a day. This is my 3rd book by Mary Alice Monroe.
  • Chris Mara
    A very predictable beach read with various family members getting together to solve problems from the past and in the present. Of course the cottages, ocean, beaches and marsh are beautifully described, as well as the nesting and gestation and hatching of the island’s loggerhead turtles. I wanted to read this book as my salute to the end of summer, sand, flip flops and tank tops but I was sorely disappointed. It was just another redundant beach...

    "Her Mama used to say that barrier islands protected the mainland from the storms. But in truth, the marshes protected the islands from the stress of the mainland."Cara agreed with her Mama, life was different on the islands, and that's why she was coming back to stay. After three years away, the death of her husband, Cara, now 53, has quit her job and is returning to the beloved Beach House on the Isle of Palms, off the coast of South Carolina, ...

    Another wonderful journey back to the beach. MAM's writing is flawless as always. Her stories make me long for a family, a beach house, the ocean. And the sea turtle stories still choked me up. This is more than a beach read. There's so much information about wildlife and conservation, done in an entertaining way. Loved it.

    Spoilers for readers who have not read the Beach House series. You do not want to start with this fifth book since it will spoil events from the prior books.Wow. This was great. I do wish that Monroe didn't feel the need to always have two female characters to focus on in these books. I was fine with just following along with Cara's story personally. Us shifting back and forth between her and her niece Linnea. Even though I gave this book five st...

    I adore this series and love just about everything Mary Alice Monroe writes. She pulls you into the tale as if you're sitting on the beach with Cara and Linnea. Isle of Palms, South Carolina sounds like my dream home when it's off season. I love "hearing" all the ladies reminiscing about Lovey and her Turtle Rescue program. The story centers on Cara returning to the Beach House and getting involved with the rescue program. She welcomes her niece ...
