Cottage by the Sea - Robin Jones Gunn

Released July 2012

Robin Jones Gunn

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Shortly after launching her new business as a wedding planner, Erin Bryce receives a call that her father's had a stroke. Erin rushes to his side, despite the fact that his new wife and Erin do not get along. After spending a few days with him, Erin knows he's fine and returns home.Her business takes off, and she couldn't be happier. Months later, a second call comes in. He's had a massive stroke and this time, it's serious.

Erin drops everything to be with her father. When his wife walks out and doesn't return, Erin knows she must remain and care for her father. This one choice creates potential problems. It also forces Erin to get to know her father in ways that she'd never taken the time to do before. Spending weeks in her father's cottage on the coast of Oregon may be exactly what Erin needs.

Cottage by the Sea is touching and often brought tears to my eyes. There are things that occur that had me fuming a bit, right along with the main character, but as you read on, you learn that not everything is as it seems. This is a Christian novel, but it's never preachy making it suitable for any reader in my opinion. If you enjoy women's fiction and love coastal settings, you won't go wrong picking up a copy of Robin Jones Gunn's new book.
