Elizabeth Margaret–better known as Em–has always known what her life would contain: an internship at her father’s firm, a degree from Harvard, and a career as a lawyer. The only problem is, it’s not what she wants. So when she gets the opportunity to get away and spend a month with the aunt she never knew, she jumps at the chance. While there, Em learns that her family has some pretty significant secrets. And then there’s Cade, the laid-back local surfer boy who seems to be everything Em isn’t. Naturally, she can’t resist him, and as their romance blossoms, Em feels that for the first time ever, she is really living life on her own terms.

Ope’s Opinion:  You think you know where this book is going from the beginning, but surprise – you don’t!  It has wonderful turns you just won’t expect.
                                      I have two daughters ( grown now ) I would have recommend this book for them to read as young adults.  I am going to suggest they read it now too!!   It has no inappropriate language or scenes in it.  It kept my attention through the whole book.

                                     Just a wonderful, easy, enjoyable read.

Rating: Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
