Overview

Over the course of one year, in a charming cottage by the sea, eight people will discover love and remembrance, reconciliation and reunion, beginnings and endings in this unforgettable sequel to Georgia Bockoven's The Beach House and Another Summer

Alison arrives at the beach house in June to spend a month with her restless grandson before he leaves for his first year of college. More than a decade earlier, Alison lost her beloved husband, and has faced life alone ever since. Now she discovers a new life and a possible new love.

August brings together four college friends facing a milestone. During summer's final days, they share laughter, tears, and love—revealing long-held secrets and creating new and even more powerful bonds.

World-class wildlife photographer Matthew and award-winning war photographer Lindsey arrive at the beach house in January, each harboring the very real fear that it will mark the end of their decade-long love affair. Alone in the house's warm peace, they are forced to truly look at who they are and what they want, discovering surprising truths that will change their lives forever.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Returning to the beach house where each renter rents for a month and usually has some significant reason for taking a month long vacation.  As the previous two books have been re-released with new covers, this one was new and you could tell that the issues that were being dealt with were more on the modern side.  With 9/11 and PTSD as two of the big things, I absolutely loved this one and its characters. I don't want to say too much in this review and ruin the entire series, but I absolutely love the set up of having owners of the beach house that are present in each of the three books and then renters for the months of June, July and August who are different in each book.  It makes it almost a collection of short stories, but still a cohesive book.

The first story with the grandson was ok - the second story of the friends was boring - and the third story was downright depressing.

Return to the Beach House is Georgia Bockoven at her finest. Three stories that hits all age groups, touching, heartwarming, a book you'll want to read again and again.  Another home run for Georgia Bockoven.

Usually the sequel to a book let's me down but this one didn't. Although I didn't have any laugh-out-loud moments as in The Beach House it was still very good. The baggage each renter carried (teens, young adults and older adults) along with their suitcases was surprising. I appreciated some of the characters in the Beach House were again a part of the Return to the Beach House.

I bought this and the prequel at the same time because they were both on sale. Both books were shallow and extremely predictable. The subject matter attempts to deal with deep topics but the characters are so static that it just doesn't take the reader anywhere. Don't waste your money on this. Buy ANY Maeve Binchy novel instead. Her novels have a similar format as they are collections of interwoven stories but the writing is leaps and bounds beyond this.
