This book is OK, but mostly typical chick lit. I enjoyed the characters, but the plot was predictable. There is an underlying message, which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 2. This is a light summer read.

Dorothea Benton Frank never disappoints - - yet another good one, but with added intrigue and mystery.

Ashley, Liz and Maisie form a trio of daughter, Mother and Grandmother living in hurricane country, South Carolina. The author builds the characters really well and we learn what makes each of them tick, especially the young and impressionable artist, Ashley. Although the overall story was a bit 'soap-opera-y,' I did enjoy it. Too bad the overall theme came together in the last 25 pages, but when it did, it was well done.

Benton's books always focus on interrelationships, which I enjoy. This particular family and its closest friends are an interesting mix of "proper" Southern behaviour and individuals who think outside that box. They bounce off each other in not-so-great ways until a crisis in weather and relationships brings out the best, loving aspects of them. They have lives I can't really see living myself, but I do enjoy reading about them.

I read this book two weeks ago and cannot remember what it's about. That is an indication of the impression it made on me.

Pretty good story but a little too "sweet" and trite for me!
