    Greene's Best Book Thus Far!

    Loved the quote from author, Grace Green: “Beach Winds confirms the power of love. Love is not a matter of book for genetics. Love is a blessing wherever you find it and should be tended as if it were the most delicate seedling, yet shared as freely as the most common plant. Like the dune grass that helps the dunes withstand the ocean and weather, so are we to those we love.”

    “The timelessness of the ocean, the universe of nature, and life in all of its moods remains in winter, different only in terms of who is observing the scene – what they bring to it and what they take away and what they keep secret.”

    Having read “Beach Rental” some time ago, was delighted to read “Beach Winds”, as almost forgot about Julia/Luke (characters from the first book) and her story. I really enjoyed this book as one of my favorites of Green thus far, as have read them all. This series is full of takeaways for many reasons and is really a contemporary historical women’s fiction, a romance, mystery, inspirational, and chick lit combined into one book.

    There is much to be said for the NC coastal area as so serene and a tranquil place for reflection, escape, and growing. Hopefully, we will hear more from Mia/Joel, and a continuation of Laura, as well as Fran/Brian, and Will. These characters need to live on for a few more books!

    Frannie is a complex character, asserting her independence as matures so much throughout the book, as well as Brian. An inspiration read about forgiveness and new relationships. This can be a standalone; however, would encourage readers to read Beach Rental first.

    I LOVED Beach Winds. It is so easy to get caught up in Frannie's

    I LOVED Beach Winds. It is so easy to get caught up in Frannie's life, as she evolves, finding her way. The characters are the kind of people you'd like to know...most of them, anyway. Grace's description of Emerald Isle makes you feel you're there. There's a lot going on in this book...great characters, romance, mystery and inspiration. I like a book you feel good about, after reading!

    I'm hoping there might be a sequel to Beach Winds somewhere in our future. I'd gladly go back to Emerald Isle with Grace and these characters!

    Great sequel to Beach Rental! I was excited to learn that Beach

    Great sequel to Beach Rental!
    I was excited to learn that Beach Winds was the sequel to Beach Rental.  I loved Beach Rental and that was the first book I read by author Grace Greene and I fell in love!  She has done it again with Beach Winds!  She introduces a few new characters and of course there are the old characters we already know and love from the first book!  Frannie is a dynamic character; she wants to assert her independence and be strong, but isn't quite sure who she is and how to go about it.  I love that she turns to the beach and helping her uncle.  Along the way she finds inspiration through others.  Can she forgive and move on?  Can she figure out who she really is, or will she turn back to what she has always known?  Can she find love and love in return?  A great inspirational and slightly Christian read, Beach Winds will have you yearning to take a walk on the beach!
    I received a copy of this book for free and this is my honest review.
