Blog Tour: Chasing Sunsets

Chasing Sunsets: A Cedar Key Novel (Return to Cedar Key)

About the Book:
Kimberly Tucker's life hasn't turned out the way she thought it would. While her ex is living it up, she struggles to understand what went wrong. When her two sons end up spending five weeks of summer vacation with their father, Kim plans a respite at the family vacation home on tiny Cedar Key. As she revisits the long-forgotten past, she discovers that treasures in life are often buried, and sometimes you do get a second chance at love.

Let yourself get swept away to an island retreat of warm tropical breezes, sandy beaches, and the most glorious sunsets you can imagine.

My Comments:
I liked this one, a lot.  Kim's dad sends her to his vacation home, a place she has avoided since the death of her mother (and the loss of her first love).  During her respite there (one she fought against having) she learns about her past and the past of some loved ones.  Some chapters are sent in the present; others are dated and set in the past.  For this book, the technique works.  The old saying is that without knowing the past we are doomed to repeat it.  By the end of the book Kim had learned enough about the past to embrace the good and flee the bad, even if that meant accepting her part in the bad.  Grade:  A.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available for this tour.
