From the bestselling author of Lulu's Caf�
Sophia Prescott is still mending from the embarrassment of a highly publicized divorce from a pro football player, and the now-single mother is back in Sunset Cove, surrounded by the supporting love of her family and the Sand Queens. Sophia doesn't think there's any hope for starting over until an unexpected trip to the pediatrician's office gives her a second chance after all.

Dr. Weston Sawyer knows all about lives shattering into millions of pieces. His own all but ended when a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and barreled head-on into his pregnant wife's sedan, killing her instantly and leaving Wes with a soul so wounded that it has refused to heal. He packed up and left swampy southern Alabama for South Carolina with the hope of fading into the sleepy coastal town of Sunset Cove. Instead, feisty brunette Sophia Prescott will have him braving something different and entirely unexpected. If Sophia and Wes can take the leap to give love another try, they just might find that hope has a way of coming back around and weaving into one's heart.


“Wes thought he owed it to her after Sophia had shared the warmth of her laughter on their fake date. It had woken something in Wes that had remained dormant for so long it seemed lost forever. Each time she’d laughed in his presence it breathed a little more life into the withered part of his soul that was supposed to hold hope.”

The past has taught Sophia and Weston that love leads to pain. When their lives entwine, they can’t help but fall in love. But will obstacles from the past destroy everything they build?

 ‘Sea Glass Castle’ was an emotional, meaningful read. Sophia and Weston are still in love with each other’s previous partners and that is unique, it’s different from other romances in this trope. Their dialogue was quite funny. Despite several mishaps, in the beginning, they communicated well. The most important aspect of a relationship, they give each other space. Sophia and Wes are in the process of healing and they find comfort in each other’s happiness. Weston was more admirable and easy to like than Sophia.

“Are you kidding me?” She reached and poked the charming dimple in his left cheek with her index finger. “Dimples… You’re just too much.” - Sophia to Weston

 Ty Prescott, Sophia’s ex-husband had different shades to him. He wasn’t a complete villain and that was realistic. This novel has a massive ensemble cast who were all extremely entertaining. Symbolism was used in various parts of the novel and it worked. The diction suited the mood and the entire plot was well-connected. 

“The sky was painting itself in rich pink and orange, so he focused on just taking in God’s wonderment and leaving the trivial mess of Sunset Cove for a spell.”

Sophia’s got an MBA and a stellar resume but she came off as lazy, whiny, and non-ambitious at the exposition. That’s not accurate as later incidents prove otherwise but she was also mean to Wes most of the time. The knitting ladies aka the town’s gossipers felt silly and forced. They tested Wes and Sophia’s patience, and mine too. Drama was cheesy, but cute. 

‘Sea Glass Castle’ is recommended to readers in the mood for a slow, comfy, romance. This novel contains themes of christianity and it would be enjoyable for readers who connected to the whole christianity aspect of books such as ‘A Walk to Remember’.
