About the book:
A seaside town helps one young woman rediscover hope and healing in a brand-new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
After tragedy strikes, Annie moves in to the summer cottage where her family vacationed when she was a child. Soon Annie finds herself making new friends, even developing a romance with a quiet and mysterious painter. And as she becomes part of the community, Annie learns that the surest way to heal is by making a difference in the lives of those around her.
This book is quite light if you’d like some rest from the thrillers/murders/mysteries (like me) but at the same time will touch your soul in very deepest ways. It is about many different things – family, parents, friends, love and loss and things that are important in life.
It grabbed me from the beginning and embraced me in this warm hug. The writing style was good. I am so used to books narrated by a main character or a few, that third-person narration felt a bit strange. But at the same time refreshing, as I felt like someone is telling me a beautiful story.
Cottage by the Sea is a really heart-warming book. You start sympathising to the main character/s from the first pages. It also has a story – at different times sad, sweet, angry, kind.
If you are looking for a summer/ beach/ cozy read, look no further, Cottage by the Sea is a perfect choice to warm up your heart (like a cup of a nice hot chocolate) or to relax your mind (like a light cocktail at the pool or a beach).
My rating is 4* out of 5*.
