Beach Dreams by Trish Perry

I was excited to read Beach Dreams because I thought it was the perfect summer book. Isn’t the cover cute? It drew me right in as a good read for relaxing on the chaise lounge, but I soon discovered that this is a great book to read any season.

Here’s what it’s about: Tiffany LeBoeuf recently lost her mother to cancer. Still grieving, Tiffany seeks rest for her body and soul at a cozy beach house in San Diego. A scheduling mix–up causes a double booking, and Tiffany ends up sharing the house with a woman named Eve. When Eve’s boyfriend, Jeremy, arrives to surprise Eve, he’s surprised to see Tiffany as well. He settles in at the beach house next door, and what happens after that surprises them all.

Beach Dreams is about being true to your faith and finding redemption from past mistakes. The characters were unique and relatable, and the setting made me yearn for a cozy beach vacation. I loved that secrets were revealed and the fall out dealt with in meaningful ways.

Beach Dreams is a fun and romantic story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
