    "Rich, well written story...a treasure!"

    This story is so well written, the timing in this book is perfect. Modern characters, that are rich with story. Each person so interesting. The flow and melody of this story just sings. I loved it, can you tell. The author did a fantastic job but even with that the wrong narrator can ruin it. Ms. Hicks...a solid "10". I applaud your work in this book. When you read "Victoria" I swear I could "see" her. That same attention was given to every character. I found myself talking to them. Amazing! This story develops like an archaeological find...the secrets working their way to the surface, so unpredictable.
    Thank you everyone. This is treasure for sure.

    "Enjoyable summer read"
    Would you listen to Coast Road again? Why?

    I am amazed by the differences of opinion when rating a book! I like Barbara Delinsky because she writes stories about couples that make their marriages work. They do the hard work and stay together or get back together. My favorite of her stories like this was Escape. This story was very believable and well played out. Jack is a great character. He gets his act together and realizes it's not all about him.


    Have you listened to any of Laura Hicks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed the narrator very much. She gave each character a voice and did a good job of it.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for a riveting compelling story, this is not it. This is a fun escape from the day. Go sit outside with a glass of iced coffee and Coast Road on your iPod and relax!
