Image of Wind Chime Point (An Ocean Breeze Novel)

Sweet and charming, Woods’ second book in her Ocean Breeze series brings the Castle family together again and is best enjoyed after reading the first book. The story of forging a new future is interesting enough, but a hero with no flaws and problems resolved too neatly make the novel not fully engaging. For a lighthearted, Hallmark channel experience, this book is a good choice.

Ambitious and driven Gabi Castle’s life is in shambles. She’s lost her job and her boyfriend, but she’ll soon have a baby. She seeks help from her family at her grandmother’s home on the North Carolina coast, where she hopes to come up with a new plan for her life. Instead, Wade Johnson, who fell for Gabi on her last visit, comes into her life and helps her see a new way of looking at her future. Like Gabi, widower Wade has his own painful past. Still, the two take tentative steps toward something more than friendship that ends with a new career for Gabi and a forever love for both of them. (MIRA, May, 400 pp., $7.99)
