Beach House Reunion by Mary Alice Monroe

Beach House Reunion

It’s almost summertime. We’re all ready to go back to the beach! No one hears us like Mary Alice Monroe. She’s bringing us the fifth in the Beach House series.

Your favorite characters are back. Cara Rutledge has been away from her beloved Isle of Palm cottage. Yes, the lovely beach front home she inherited from her mother. She’s been away sorting out her soul after the death of her husband, the love of her life. She’s done a 180. And she’s sure got a surprise for you.

Linnea, Cara’s niece, has decided she needs a break from her home in Charleston. Her dad is not himself lately and her brother is deeply troubled. Her mom is no help right now. Moving into the beach house with her aunt is a good decision for both of them.

BEACH HOUSE REUNION oozes  summery charm.  I can still hear the surf and the birdsong. I can smell the sea. And I can feel the sun shine on my face as if I were lifting it to the sky on Isle of Palm. I’m a beach girl at heart; always will be.  All I have to do to feel as if I’m  back to the beach is think about one of Mary Alice’s BEACH HOUSE books. Perfect.

The turtle patrol is back in action and this time Linnea gets to join in. I always enjoy going back to the basics of turtle season. I never tire of hearing about Big Girl. NEVER.  Thanks, Mary Alice, for bringing her back in this novel.

” A stand alone novel, BEACH HOUSE REUNION brings three generations of the historic Rutledge family together to find the strength, love, and resilience to break destructive family patterns and forge new bonds that will endure long beyond one summer reunion.”

Even if you haven’t read the first books in this wonderful series, it’s okay to start with this one. Publisher says.  Then, of course, you’ll want to read the rest of them.

I have fallen in love with the Lowcountry over the years, and it’s all through reading Mary Alice’s lovely books. We’ve traveled to Charleston and Isle of Palm and Sullivan’s Island and they are all as wonderful as they are depicted in these very atmospheric books.

Mary Alice’s bestselling novel THE BEACH HOUSE has been made into a movie and aired on  Hallmark Hall of Fame  on April 28, 2018. #TheBeachHouseHallmarkMovie
