    A blast from the past!
    Lady Sunshine was an easy read and kept me intrigued. The descriptions of the Sandcastle and its surroundings were vivid and easy to picture, and references to the 70's (Max Factor!; the Hustle) let me feeling nostalgic. I did not guess the ending as it seemed a cruel and unlikely outcome for most involved. I felt that Jackie's relationship with Paul was an afterthought and did not contribute meaningfully to the story or either of their lives. In fact it put me in mind of the plot to many Hallmark movies. This novel is a "beach read" as others have referred to it, but definitely not a deep dive into the character's lives.

    Almost Good
    I enjoyed this book in parts, but I felt that the author left too many clues regarding the ending...I wanted to be surprised, but I wasn't at all...an almost good read.
  • Paula J. (Bath, ME)
    Frustrating
    This book has a great setting; I like the 70's background. Most of the main characters were fairly well developed (Shane needs work, though). I found the main character to be a bit much of a drama queen/worry wart/black cloud. There is a lot of building of tension that doesn't necessarily resolve well.
