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.

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 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.

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.

Margaux Sullivan is a New York City fashion designer who returns to the coastal Connecticut town of Crescent Cove when her husband absconds with all of their assets. She finds herself falling hard for a local policeman, Nick Prescott, and his nephew, Connor, even though romance could seriously threaten her big career comeback.This is definitely a great beach read...light and entertaining. Although her style is similar to Kristin Hannah, her characters and plot aren't nearly as well-developed.

This story of a woman struggling to rebuild a life after her husband runs out on her with all of their money made for an enjoyable read for the most part. Margaux and Nick were both interesting characters for most of the book, though at the end I didn't find either of them particularly sympathetic. The book is well-written and the setting delightful. The minor players- Margaux's mom, Nick's landlady- are engaging though I felt more of their story could have been told throughout the narrative. I won't spoil the ending, but I did find the last few chapters frustrating and it altered my view of the book, costing 1/2 a star in the rating.

Margaux is at the top of her game in NYC, her own designs finally making a splash in couture circles. After her husband disappears with all her money, Margaux heads to the family beach home, site of both her mother and old friends. Things begin ominously when Margaux gets a ticket upon arriving to town. The interim police chief, back in Crescent Cove to help his mother raise his nephew, recognizes Margaux from bygone summers. Margaux isn't likable for the entire story, but her relationship with sweet Connor more than makes up for the leaps of faith I had to take as she rebounds so successfully from what seemed to be certain financial disaster. What could have just been another one of those "my husband wiped out all our finances, thank god for the family beach house" novels, turned into so much more as I kept reading.

This is a wonderful, well written book regarding relationships of family and friends. It is very predictable, but the story holds the reader's interest from beginning to end. The author has a wonderful way of relating the story of a young woman who loses everything and rebuilds her life with the help of family and lifelong friends as she moves home and starts over. I'm glad to have been selected by LibraryThing to read and review this book. I highly recommend it to all who enjoy a heartwarming story.
