Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Me Before You and One Plus One, a surprising and moving romance set in an old-fashioned seaside town on the verge of unwelcome change.

Liza McCullen will never fully escape her past. But the unspoiled beaches and tight-knit community of Silver Bay offer the freedom and safety she craves - if not for herself, then for her young daughter, Hannah. That is, until Mike Dormer arrives as a guest in her aunt's hotel.

The mild-mannered Englishman with his too-smart clothes and distracting eyes could destroy everything Liza has worked so hard to protect: Not only the family business and the bay that harbors her beloved whales, but also her conviction that she will never love - never deserve to love - again.

For his part, Mike Dormer is expecting just another business deal - an easy job kick-starting a resort in a small seaside town ripe for development. But he finds that he doesn't quite know what to make of the eccentric inhabitants of the ramshackle Silver Bay Hotel, especially not enigmatic Liza McCullen, and their claim to the surrounding waters.

As the development begins to take on a momentum of its own, Mike's and Liza's worlds collide in this hugely affecting and irresistible tale full of Jojo Moyes' signature humor and generosity.

    Story
    "Not her best."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Probably not. Usually love anything JoJo writes but this fell a little short.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The underlying storyline about the preservation of our precious sea life.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I feel the narration was at the core of what ruined this book. Why there was a man narrating so much when most of the characters were female is beyond me. And a mature man should never try to do an adolescent girl's voice. It was very distracting for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No...actually I found it pretty mundane.


    Any additional comments?

    Usually if I don't care for a book I will just stop reading and return it unfinished...something I do now because there is so much out there to read. I kept going with this book though because it was a Moyes book and she is one of my favorites. I am glad I read it through but was also glad when I was through.
