Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Barbara Delinsky: A woman has a secret that may save the life of her best friend's husband - or destroy him.

Charlotte and Nicole were once the best of friends, spending summers together in Nicole's family's island house, but they have since grown apart. A successful travel writer, Charlotte lives on the road, while Nicole, a food blogger, lives in Philadelphia with her surgeon husband, Julian. When Nicole returns to the island house in order to write a book about island food, she invites her old friend Charlotte for both sentimental and practical reasons. Outgoing and passionate, Charlotte has a gift for talking to people and making friends, and Nicole would like her help interviewing locals for her book. Missing a genuine connection, Charlotte agrees.

But what both women don't know is that they are each holding a secret that may change their relationship forever. Are the bonds of friendship strong enough to weather past indiscretions and betrayals? Can love survive an honest mistake?

Filled with real, gut-wrenching emotion as well as a strong romantic storyline, Sweet Salt Air is a new offering from a beloved storyteller guaranteed to make you laugh and cry.

Enjoyable Maine story

At one time Nicole and Charlotte we best of friend – inseparable – spending their summers on Nicole’s family summer home on Quinnipeague, a small island off the coast of Maine. But 10 years have passed, with secrets kept and different life paths that have caused these women to grow apart. Nicole’s dad has passed away and now the summer home on Quinnipeague is going to be sold. Nicole being a food blogger and Charlotte a successful travel writer will bring these 2 friends together once more to renew their friendship and write a cookbook bases on Quinnipeague recipes – but each has a secret that will change both their lives. Nicole’s secret would betray her husband, Julian’s wishes, for Charlotte it could destroy her renewed friendship with Nicole but prolong Julian’s life. It would release Charlotte from her guilt of the past and allow her to love again.

Sweet Salt Air by Barbara Delinsky it a story of the strength of friendship, the ability to face misfortune, to love again and follow your heart when your life does not follow your life plan.

I can’t say the story was unpredictable. I did find Nicole’s character at time be grating but total enjoyed Charlotte and Leo. This was my first Barbara Delinsky book - it was well written, I found the characters well developed - I will definitely read another Delinsky. This was an audiobook was narrated by Marguerite Gavin – she did an excellent job.

Love BD sorry didn't care for this one.

I hope it is just that I listened to this book at the wrong time. Because I love BD. Some of my very most favorite books were written by her. This book seemed so slow. I didn't care for the narrator., Her voice kind of grated on my ears. I just couldn't seem to focus on it. Hope it is my fault and not the writing.
