From the Inside Flap
Old friendships--and love--make all things new again.
The acclaimed author of Safe Harbor and other "New York Times bestsellers returns to the seaside, delving into the heart of a once happy family facing troubled waters.
Bay McCabe relishes life's simple pleasures, her children, her home by the sea. She has never forgotten the values of her Irish granny--the everyday happiness of family, good friends, and hard work. Bay and her husband, Sean, have weathered rough spells and moved on. Now a perfect summer, filled with the scent of beach roses, lies before them.
Charming and ambitious, Sean splits his energy between the town bank, his old fishing boat, and the family he seems to adore--until he leaves his young daughter stranded after school. As troubling memories resurface, a phone call confirms that Sean is missing. So begins a season that will change everything. As the door to all Bay cherishes seems to close forever, another opens, and an old love steps through. Embraced by enduring friendships, Bay will discover the truth of who she is--what love is--and how life's deepest mysteries are often those closest to home.

If you have never read any of her books, you are missing out.. I always read one so quick, that I go back and rad it again. I never tire if her writings. Just so I did not miss anything.
Unfortunately, the majority of the next 200 pages were spent talking about everyone's feelings. Finally, on page 355, the story gets moving again.
Seemed like a good summer read. I did read through to the end and was fairly satisfied with the conclusion, but most of the time I was urging the characters--including the bad guys--to just get on with it.
I'll try another one of her novels. Could just be that she never quite fleshed out the plot of this one.
