The Guest Book by Marybeth Whalen
Twenty-five years after she began exchanging drawings with a mysterious boy in the guest book of a Carolina beach house, Macy Dillon is back at Sunset Beach---this time toting a hurting heart and a broken family. Will she be able find the man whose drawings moved her so deeply when she was a child? Questions of childhood, loss, and longing for love are explored in author Marybeth Whalen’s touching and thought-provoking, The Guest Book.
A romance set in a beach setting, with a little mystery seemed like a great combination of fun but to me it fell short. When I started the book I was super excited and expected to thoroughly enjoy it but as the story progressed I slowly lost interest. I have read She Makes it Look Easy by the same author and really enjoyed that book and the message it portrayed but there just wasn't much substance to this book for me. I know there are many out there that will enjoy this book more than me which is great! Overall I will most likely read more from Marybeth Whalen in the future.
* I received this book from Zondervan for the purpose of this review.
