Where love, fashion, and tragedy collide in search of true destiny.
Jennifer Marshall is a textile designer transforming the world of high fashion. She soars in her career, collaborating with top designers to create some of the most innovative textiles and modern successes. But her personal life is bittersweet. She is torn between the love of two men, neither of whom are fully hers. She carefully guards her personal privacy and her secret double life while trying to steer a path toward clarity and who is really her destiny.
Paul Summers captivates Jennifer with a chemistry that makes her skin tingle, but he is emotionally unavailable. Josh Russo touches her soul at its very core, and from the beginning they feel like they are old friends.
A tragic accident rips Jennifer from her normal life, fracturing her body, thrusting her into a coma. In this dream state, one perfect mate resides in her mind, and she lives in an idyllic fantasy world filled with mermaid beauty, freedom, and complete love. Their lives go on, unaware of Jennifer's struggle for her very life, and a new guardian emerges who is determined to know her and bring her back from the brink.
It takes a full circle of time and healing for Jennifer to realize what she had, what she lost, and what really matters.
Sometimes the simplest of stories are the very best. It was heartwarming, emotional (in a good way!) with some surprising plot twists. I could relate to every character in the story. The author also provided many lush descriptions of the people and scenery, which made the book come alive. Her reading was quite lovely and very genuine. I highly recommend this book and look forward to Jacqueline Britton's future work!
Would you consider the audio edition of Coasters to be better than the print version?
Yes, I love the audio even more than the print version. I can imagine the scenes come to life.
What did you like best about this story?
I love all the fashion scenes, Fashion Shows and collaborations and picturing all the beautiful clothes.
Any additional comments?
The story has a nice pace with a lot of surprising moments. I love the characters and seeing how they interact with Jennifer. It's about love but more about how an intensely creative designer is derailed by her accident and how she pushes through with her work and her life.
