Overview

While renowned designer Margaux Sullivan was presenting her highly praised collection during New York City's Fashion Week, her husband was cleaning out their bank account. A week after he disappeared, the bank foreclosed on Margaux's apartment and business.

Suddenly broke, betrayed, and humiliated, Margaux has nowhere else to turn to but home: the small coastal town of Crescent Cove, Connecticut, where she once knew love, joy, and family before she put them behind her on the climb to fame. When she's stopped for speeding by local interim police chief Nick Prescott, Margaux barely remembers the "townie" boy who worshipped her from afar every summer. But Nick is all grown up now, a college professor who gave up his career to care for his orphaned nephew, Connor. Though still vulnerable, Margaux is soon rediscovering the beauty of the shore through young Connor's eyes . . . and, thanks to Nick, finding a forgotten place in her heart that wants to love again.

But as she continues to work on a bold new line that will get her back into the game, Margaux realizes that soon she will have to make the most important, most difficult decision of her life. . . .

Please of Please people quit spoiling the whole book, a couple of sentences will do, we don't need paragraphs on a book review, keep it short, don't rewrite the book in the reviews!

I really enjoyed this book. I love books with a beach setting. There were very interesting relationships between the characters. I really liked the struggle of the main character as to where she really belonged after her husband's death. I look forward to reading another book by this author

The book started semi-stronge. The voice was there, but died off by the third chapter (which is about the point I started skimming). I never really connected to any of them. The emotions werent strong, the conflict was lame (a tried and true conflict of a romance novel). Nick, Connor and Bri showed promise of true tug at your heart emotion but all were under developed and left me disappointed. Not worth 9.99.

i thoroughly enjoyed this book.. I hope another of Ms. Noble's books will be available shortly. I just loved her style and every one of her characters.

This is a pleasant piece of work which has some ok characters in it. The problem with the book is that it should have stopped about 40 pages from the end but did not. It is apparent what will happen and how it will happen but then it went on and on to bother the reader to get to where and when it happens. Just went on too far, seemed as if it was done to fill the pages but really would have been fine to end it where it should have ended.

The storyline was good, characters more than one dimensional, an enjoyable read. I hope Ms Noble is working on her next book.

This was my first book by Shelley Noble (as I tend to stay with the authors I am comfortable with; however, like to branch out when I see a cover or summary, I feel drawn to). I read Beach Colors on my NOOK, and it captured me from the first chapter! I started it on Saturday and finished it on Sunday, as loved the characters (Mags, Nick, Connor, the moms, and of course the BFFs! The setting was a big draw as love beach towns and the excitement of the designers. A captivating story of summer breezes, love, challenges, heartbreak, and starting over! Would love to see a series, and hear more from Nick and Margaux and the others!

I am still in the midst of reading but wish I could just sit and finish. Very good, keeps you attentive. Only thing I don't like is the foul language. Not necessary for a good story. Not a lot in it, but more than I want in it. Looking forward to the ending.

Only halfway through this book so far but fully enjoying it - it's a 'light' read and a good way to escape your day!

"Beach Colors" is truly a great beach read.  I think of it as Project Runway at Crescent Cove.  There is love, heartache, friendship, hate and acceptance.  This is an enjoyable read and for the most part a "happy" book.   Great characters - Your heart aches for both Nick and Connor and the current circumstance of their lives.  Margaux and her life long friends are great support for one another, despite the years they've been apart and I loved Linda and her outgoing, brassy personality.  Like I said "a great beach read". Ms. Noble's descriptive writing allows you to visualize the beautiful colors of the ocean and the beach, and to fall in love with this quaint little coastal town. Get yourself a Watermelon Martini, lay out on a beach towel and immerse yourself in Shelley Noble's newest novel.

Hoped this would turn into a trilogy but her next book, Stargazey Point, is set further south. Would have loved a follow-on with the other residence of Crescent Cove.

This was a very good book - I couldn't put it down!

Shelley Noble writes a great story that captivates the reader from the beginning. I have read all of her novels and can't wait for the next one to come out. Most of them have sequels which is good because the endings leave you wanting more. They are all stories with a lot of human interest and interesting characters portraying life situations readers can relate to in one way or another.

This is the second book (and second time to read this one) by this writer and the only negative - I wasn't ready for it to end.
