Review: Coming Home to Seashell Harbor by Miranda Liasson
A serious injury forced footballer Tony Cammareri into early retirement—now he’s determined to reboot his life with a splashy new restaurant venture. He knows better than to expect a happy reunion with Hadley, but he’s determined to make up for the way things ended between them. Yet when Tony and Hadley end up vying for control of the town’s future, they find themselves once again on opposing sides.
As their rivalry intensifies, they must decide what’s worth fighting for—and what it truly means to be happy.
Here we are starting a new series by Miranda Liasson and I couldn't be any more excited. I enjoy her small-town romances with her wonderful, memorable characters. In fact, when I wasn't reading Coming Home to Seashell Harbor I found myself thinking about the characters. Wondering who was coming next and who'd I love to know more about.
I have to admit I'm a big fan of books like that. You know the ones, the characters stay with you even when your washing dishes.
I'm a huge fan of Tony's. He is the sweetest most caring hero. Right away you see what he's about. He does have some huge self-esteem and abandonment issues. The problem was these issues make him make stupid decisions that hurt him and sometimes others. I was happy reading about how he dealt with everything.
Now Hadley I flip-flopped on. As a whole I liked her but I also thought that sometimes there were big holes in her plans and the need to one-up Tony because she was mad at him. She at times became so focused on that she lost all thoughts of the follow-through. Like once she got her grandmother's place back up and running who was going to run it? He really gave no thought to her grandmother.
The good news is that Hadley too is a good person the times I like her way outway the ones when I didn't.
