Sand Castle Bay is the first in a new series written by Sherryl Woods. It introduces us to a new group of people on the coast of North Carolina.
I love these characters! They remind me of my own extended family. They way they rally round and support each other when the going gets rough.
This is the sort of book you can curl up with on a rainy night and it makes you forget the weather.
The two main characters were high school sweethearts that ended up going their separate ways. And now they have a second chance. This is a wonderful romance that makes you believe in second chances. And it does it without any hot and heavy scenes.
It also made me want to go to the beach! And have dinner in a restaurant like the one the family has in this book. The characters feel like they could be real folks you could go visit.
I like that.

About the Author :
With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than 100 books in that distinctive setting, whether in her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. She’s also especially partial to small towns wherever they may be. In her latest series, Sherryl returns to the fictional town of Serenity, South Carolina, and her beloved Sweet Magnolias. “Writing these books was like catching upl with old friends. I hope readers will feel the same way,” she says.
A member of Novelists Inc. and Sisters in Crime, Sherryl divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home with its lighthouse view, in Key Biscayne, Florida. “Wherever I am, if there’s no water in sight, I get a little antsy,” she says.
