Circle in the Sand is an extraordinary story about ordinary people. The idea of childhood friends keeping their friendship alive as their lives took them in different directions appealed to me.

I like the writing style which gives a first person perspective from each of the four main characters Emily, Jax, Ned and Sage. The informality allows you to connect with the characters immediately so you feel less that you are reading the story and more like you're on the fringes of their lives watching them progress.

What make this a five star story for me are the characters that range from stay at home mum to career woman with Jax adding the quirky dimension. Ned is remarkable because of the relationship he has with the women. Their ordinariness makes them special you can empathise because you can visualise yourself in their situations.

The conflicts were often unexpected and always well explained and helped illuminate the character/s they affected. The plot possessed the necessary twists and although I guessed some of them it didn't detract from the reading experience.

A Circle in the Sand is a lovely tale of enduring friendship and sweet romance.

Circle in the Sand by Lia Fairchild
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

** I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author for my honest review**

I have read a couple of Lia Fairchild's books before so I was eager to read this one.
I could tell from the blurb it was one that would interest me, so got stuck in.

At the beginning I had to stay with it as I need to piece who was who together and what was what, but it all soon came together like a good jigsaw puzzle making up a lovely picture.
I found it a very easy pleasant read, I chuckled, and in some places felt for several of them.

Each of them took on an image in my head, they could be one of my friends, they could be one of yours.

What I love about Lia Fairchild's writing is that its fluent. She knows how to tell a good story and keep the reader interesting from page one.

Absolutely loved this read, and I'd highly recommend it.

This is a truly lovely easy read. This is a story of a group of really close friends. Lia, the author , did a fantastic job with this story. I felt I was in the group with these friends. I felt I went through the pain & joys with them. I wanted to see good things happen them all.
This is one of them stories where you want to curl up on a cold winters day with a big mug of coffee and get lost in the lives of these characters.

Circle in the Sand is at its basic a contemporary women's fiction told through four points of view. Jax, Sage, Emily, and Ned have had a lasting friendship from childhood through to adulthood each leading very different lives, but always connected. Each character is introduced individually in present time and we are given flashbacks of defining moments in each of their lives. Each character is well defined and their journeys are realistic and their situations are believable and vastly different.

Ms. Fairchild did an excellent job weaving each of these character's stories seamlessly together. Her transitions are smooth, easy to read, and entertaining. There are a few twists in each of their lives that keeps the story moving forward. Sage's grandmother Rose's birthday was one of my favorite highlights and made reading this story worth the time to read the whole book. It left a smile on my face.

My favorite character though was Jax, perhaps because I would love to be more like her. However, the one I identified the most with was Emily, even though her journey was very different from mine. It was nice to get a male view from Ned, Emily's twin brother, of these three female friends. Even though he is floundering a bit with his own life he was always there for these women, mostly feeling like a fourth wheel. Sage was the hardest for me like, her journey was probably the most unique and life changing.

I don't read a lot of women's fiction, I prefer fantasy and mythic stories where I try to escape everyday life and lose myself in different worlds. However, I did enjoy Circle in the Sand and I am glad I read it. This would be a great beach read and not because there is sand in the title.

FYI: Adult language, several F bombs are dropped.

I'm no stranger to Lia's writing. She's a multi-faceted writer who can turn her hand to contemporary fiction, crime thrillers, chick lit and short stories.

This was a story about four people, bound by a long-standing friendship, a friendship that's tight and unbreakable. Adulthood and circumstances has meant four very different paths have been followed, but the binds that tie can never be broken. The four are Jax, Sage and twins Emily and Ned. We catch up with them at a time when each has reached a turning point in his/her life: there are decisions to be made, lifestyles to examine, careers to change...and needs to be met.

What I liked about this novel was that while the skeleton of the story is unremarkable, Lia's perspicacity and insight present four friends who bring the whole thing to life. Four very diverse characters, each likeable for different reasons. Each has depth and different perspectives on life. There's a feeling of warmth throughout and you are cocooned in a glow as you read this is; no matter what happens or what gets in the way of bringing the four together, the bond of their friendship is unbreakable.

This is a feel-good and satisfying story, beautifully written.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
