Overview

Seaside Letters (Nantucket Love Story Series) by Denise Hunter

"No matter where you are or how long until we can be together, I'll keep searching for you." Tucker

Sabrina never intended to fall in love with Tucker McCabe, the man she serves coffee to every morning at a Nantucket cafe—especially since he's unwittingly tied to a past she deeply regrets. A past that is so riddled with mistakes, it has separated her from God. But she's fallen hard and isn't sure how long she can hide her feelings.

When Tucker learns Sabrina is the research assistant for a local mystery writer, he asks Sabrina to help him with a little sleuthing of his own . . . locating an elusive woman he's fallen for online.

If Sabrina accepts the job, she'll spend her evenings in close proximity to a man who can never be hers. If she turns him down, he'll hire someone else—and that would be a disaster. Because if someone else sifts through all those letters and finds out the truth, Tucker will discover her secret . . . that the person he's trying to find is her.

An inspiring Christian romance that reminds us that love covers a multitude of sins.

Seaside Letters was everything I want in a romance. It grabbed me from the first chapter with angst and emotion and kept me glued to my seat until the book finished some three hundred pages and a couple of hours later. I did not get up to get a drink, I did not get a snack. I did not answer my cell phone. I just sat there and read the entire novel in one sitting. This is the kind of book that makes me LOVE romance (and yes, all caps required). The heroine was vulnerable and wary. The hero was resourceful and extremely patient. Their relationship was a cat and mouse game where the stakes rose as each chapter passed. There is some suspension of disbelief required of the reader to get through the middle plot twists, but really, romance lovers like myself are used to suspending disbelief in order to enjoy the story (Twilight, anyone?). Shout out to Denise Hunter...you've just made another slightly obsessed book blogging stalker...er, fan. I'll be tracking down everything you've written!

Don't you just love it when a book keeps you up all night? I'm not usually one to stay up late reading a Christian romance; it's not exactly the most suspenseful genre. Last night, however, I couldn't sleep. I was too busy reading Denis Hunter's "Seaside Letters." Hunter takes the age-old "pen pal" story and makes it her own with waitress Sabrina and her customer, Tucker. Sabrina suffers from a lack of confidence because her fiance broke up with her six days before their wedding. An online relationship seems like the only safe relationship. That relationship is put in jeopardy, however, when Sabrina finds out Tucker's her man... and he wants her to help him find his secret pen pal. Little does she know that Tucker invented the relationship as a way to break down her barriers and to get to know her. Now, Sabrina must invent a way to keep Tucker from discovering the full truth, a truth from her past that could ruin both her pen pal and her real-life relationship with Tucker. Hunter makes the classic "You've Got Mail" story and makes it her own with lovable characters and surprising plot twists. Above all, she touches the heart with her message that true beauty is found in the heart. Hunter's writing, while not descriptive, is compelling. She keeps the reader in suspense to the very end, revealing tid bits of important information as she goes along. The thing I love most about Christian romances is that there's always a character with a history that inhibits her from having confidence and taking on a new relationship. Hunter's "Seaside Letters" follows this formula to a "T," using her characters to show the unending love of God. It's a beautiful story.

In this powerful story of love and redemption, Denise Hunter exemplifies God's unrelenting love for us through Tucker's love for Sabrina. Sabrina grew up in the shadows of her beautiful cousins and when her fiance leaves her, it strengthens her belief that she's unworthy of love. Tucker meets her at the cafe where she works and seeks her out. His pursuit mimics the way God seeks out His people. This romantic tale will take you on a journey of sadness, romance, despair, redemption and joy. Hunter creates characters that come alive and invite you to join them on their journey of God-seeking. I hurt when Sabrina hurt and rejoiced when Tucker finally got to kiss his girl. This is a must-read for anyone looking for a little romance and a reminder of God's grace.

While the sea laps to shore along Nantucket Island's coastline, two people search for love through a maze of betrayal, mystery and brokenness. Grab your coffee, pull up a chair and settle in to a heaping serving of romance as you consume the pages of "Seaside Letters." But beware. This poignant story will have you searching for more of Denise Hunter's books!

This story did just what I expected. It showed how we try to hide the truth about ourselves when all along Jesus knows who we are and He's just waiting for us to be real with Him and trust Him. And like Sabrina in the story, we don't understand how we can be forgiven. Yet, Christ woos us and tries to show us by His gentle love that He longs for a relationship with us. He understands our weaknesses and reaches out to us despite the barriers we often erect to surround our hearts. Like Tucker, the hero, Christ knew us long before He reveals Himself to us. He sought us out because He loved us first and just wants us to love Him back. Despite her past, Sabrina longed to be loved for who she was even though she'd never felt good enough or pretty enough to deserve it. And being betrayed by her fiance right before their wedding was more proof that she was unloveable, in her estimation. I loved how this story showed occasional pain-filled situations from the past and did so in the "moment" as if it was happening right then. Wow. I found the conflict and tension very enjoyable and loved how the relationship between the characters slowly developed. I kept wanting her to just let him love her the way Jesus wants us to let Him love us. But because this is a romance, the kind of love is different in this story...it's romantic. And as expected, there are some heartpounding moments that seem so real that I was pulled totally into the setting and the moment. I have to say that Denise is one of the best romance writers when it comes to setting up the situation for the perfect romantic first kiss. Heavy sigh. That was so awesome. Bottom line, if you enjoy allegories with spiritual depth and meaning, you'll love the Nantucket series. If you are just looking for a romance without the underlying message, you will probably miss it in this story. But because I'm a Believer, it really warmed my heart. I highly recommend it.

I love this book,and also this author! I am re-reading it currently. Only thing is my nook broke so i sent it in, and you have to have a credit card to get all your books back. So i was going to read it online. The website says that i haven't bought it! B&N really needs to fix this, because this is STUPID that i can't read my book! Anyways this book keeps you on the edge the whole time! It hurts my heart that she is afraid to admit to being herself. And i feel bad for Tucker, who waits so patiently for her. You should read this book! It is a nice clean book that makes you smile:)

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.

This book was okay and started out fine. But as the story wore on I started getting frustrated with the main characters. Unfortunately my frustration kind of ruined most of the book. I understand that Sabrina was ashamed and mad at herself and that Tucker was supposed to be a metaphor but it just didn't work for me. I gave this book three stars only because I really like Denise Hunter's "The Convenient Groom."
