Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Shelley Noble comes a heartrending and uplifting novel about friendship, love, and what we’re willing to sacrifice for our dreams.

What was supposed to be an idyllic wedding leads to an unexpected journey of self-discovery....

When Lillo Gray pulls up to Kennebunkport’s most exclusive hotel wearing a borrowed dress and driving a borrowed VW van, she knows she’s made a big mistake. She’s not even sure why Jessica Parker invited her to her posh wedding. They haven’t seen each other since they were unhappy 14-year-old girls at fat camp. And now they’re from two completely different worlds. There’s no way Lillo fits in the rarefied circles Jessica travels in. 

Jess isn’t sure she’s ready to go through with this wedding, but she’s been too busy making everyone else happy to think about what she wants. But when she and her two closest friends, Allie and Diana, along with Lillo, discover her fiancé with his pants down in the hotel parking lot, she’s humiliated...and slightly relieved. In a rush to escape her crumbling life, Jess, Allie, and Diana pile into Lillo’s beat-up old van and head up the coast to Lighthouse Island. Once there, she hopes to figure out the next chapter in her life. 

Nursing broken hearts and broken dreams, four lost women embark on a journey to find their way back into happiness with new love, friendship, and the healing power of Lighthouse Beach.

Great listen

Really wished there was a sequel to this book. I would have loved to know where each girl ended up. Did LILO and Ned or Ian and Dianna make a difference what about Jess, did she make a go of the restoration project. There is more to the stories. But not this one.

Well written

This was a very well written book that inspired me to take a long weekend in Maine! The author has an enviable command of the English language which motivates you to periodically grab a dictionary. Although I enjoyed the narrator, she needs to work on her Male voices.

Disappointed in the adult language.

I enjoyed the story line but the language in the second book turned disgusting and repeated in nearly every sentence. A writer isn’t better Because of these additions. Lots of there were lots of useless words.

I need more!

What a great story but I need to know if the lighthouse program was a success and if she finished her schooling to return and work in the community. It is truly a cliffhanger. ❤️❤️❤️ it!

Never caught my interest

I tried to enjoy this book but I couldn’t get past the narrators slow and monotone voice. Did not strike me as a seasoned Narrator.

Not Much of an Ending!

Very slow and lengthy only to end with no real ending, just a dud! I kept going back a few chapters and thinking I had missed something, but it just wasn’t there.
