She didn’t come home to find love, but he had been waiting for her all along. 

When Jenna returns home to Sandover Beach after her mother’s death, love is the last thing on her mind. The ink is barely dry on her divorce from her cheating husband and she simply wants to make plans for a new future. But she can’t seem to avoid her past. Steve, her childhood sweetheart, shows up on her doorstep as though no time has passed. And she continues to run into Jackson, a man she wishes she never had to see again.

Jackson is a changed man--if only he could get Jenna to see it. She makes it abundantly clear that she still thinks of him as the bad boy he was in high school.

Will Jackson be able to show her the man he has become and tell her how he feels? Or will Jenna fall right back into her old patterns with Steve?

Find out in Book 1 of the Sandover Island Sweet Romance Series!

My Review: 4 Stars

Sandover Beach sounds like my kind of place, with it's small-town feel, beautiful setting, and great characters. Jenna returns home after her mother dies and finds herself in a slight love triangle. I honestly didn't know at first which guy to cheer on, but the answer became apparently pretty quickly.

Jenna has one of the heaviest bags of drama ever and she is gradually able to unburden herself as the story marches on. She really does have a lot to deal with it, but I love how those around her are able to help her, even if some do so unknowingly.

There are so many layers of feels in this story and it's not the light and fluffy book that it seems to be. It's poignant and sweet, heartbreaking and tender, and it's all wrapped up in a coating of hope.

Content: mild romance; talk of affairs, death, divorce, and some light innuendo; mild violence; mild+ references to religion.
