Beachcombers - Nancy Thayer This book frustrated me in so many ways. I'm giving it 1 star because there was one relationship that seemed real. The other ones seemed very rushed and I never saw the love. Don't get me started on the adulterous one. I didn't like any of the characters except Emma. I think she was the only one that really changed in the end. It got good reviews, but the behavior of the sisters just constantly had my rolling my eyes.
