    Too long

    Good storyline but takes too long to resolve. He knows who she is, but she doesn't know that he knows. Now, so far on page 180 of 252 page book, they are still in that same place. They have feelings for one another but will not open up and be honest.

    Too much lying and not enough romance

    Seaside Letters by Denise Hunter is a romance novel set in Nantucket. Tucker McCabe has been emailing a woman named Sweetpea for a year and has fallen in love with her. But Sweetpea refuses to meet with him, so Tucker asks Sabrina Kincaid-known for her research skills-to find the woman. The problem is that Sabrina is the mystery woman .

    The story missed for me in a couple of places. The first was setting. I've never been to Nantucket, so I wanted to see how the setting was brought into the story. Unfortunately, the setting didn't have much of a role.

    I also found Sabrina to be unlikable. She swears off relationships-but starts one through email. When Tucker asks her to find Sweetpea, she lies, feels guilty, worries, and continues to lie. The attempts to cover up the lies don't come across as believable-instead, I wondered why she just didn't tell the truth. And how come Tucker kept tap dancing around everything without telling her the truth either? I understand that theme of the book was lying, but the lies felt more like they were for the story to happen than a logical development of the characters.

    more from this reviewer

    Seaside Letters....

    Sabrina, a waitress with a past, falls in love with a man who has been sending her emails. Then she realizes the writer is someone she knows. He can NEVER find out who she is because of a major secret. Now he has approached her to hire her to find the "secret lady." Both of them have no idea what "secrets" are yet to be revealed.

    This book would be good for a trip with a lot of interruptions. I didn't have to finish the book to know what was going to happen at the end. Even though it was a story that could easily be followed, I felt that it left me wanting something else with more substance. Maybe a sequel is in order to finish some substantial issues.

    The setting of the book also lacked many details. I was rather saddened not to feel the presence of the salt water from Nantucket or the smell of pie at the diner. The cover was the only object that had details that made me want to go there.

    The story itself did not really inspire me. Although, I understood redemption and the power of honesty, it made me feel blah.

    Sometimes a person might want a book that can be put down without rushing back into the room to read it and this might be just the book.

    Being a reviewer for Thomas Nelson's Book Review Blogger program, at these have been my thoughts.
