The second book in Carlson’s Four Lindas series provides more insight into the characters’ lives and motivations. The ending will have readers longing for lifetime friends like these!
The four “Lindas” have all returned to their hometown, a small city on the Oregon coast. The transition isn’t as smooth as it could be: Caroline is dealing with her mother, who’s suffering from an advanced case of Alzheimer’s; Marley struggles to find her niche with painting; Janie tries to move forward after the loss of her husband; and Abby wants to define who she is. Can the women remain friends, yet find who they are apart from one another? (DAVID C. COOK, Sep., 320 pp., $14.99)
