I thought Grace and Sean were destined for each other, but life's unexpected turns separated them for what seemed to be forever. Perhaps twenty years later the Jersey Shore could have been an ideal place for a warm hearted reunion, but it turned out that only the stormy sea could put the pieces of their life together. I enjoyed this fast moving, exciting read with some surprises along the way.
