This book was the first book I read by this author. I read it as an E-book. Since I love the beach , I thought I would enjoy the story. I enjoyed reading about some of the people ,who rented the beach house, and their troubled lives and relationships. I was getting confused about who was who because of all the characters. The book was ok but I wish it held my attention better.
