As the summer winds down, Samantha Young gives us one last stroll on the beach with the first book in her new Hart’s Boardwalk series, The One Real Thing. She has created for us a place where you would go to simply find a little peace from the chaos known as life.
I stepped out onto the balcony and I didn’t even care that it was a cloudy, gray day above me.
Instead I enjoyed the wind blowing up off the water because it carried with it the smell of sea and the sound of the surf. I closed my eyes, listening to that gentle rush, the lap of water against beach, the cry of gulls in the air, and I felt a moment of complete peace.
It is letters from the past and a desperate need for a vacation that bring Dr. Jessica Huntington to the little beach town of Hartwell, Delaware. But from the moment she arrives, the peace and tranquility of the town, the boardwalk and the ocean makes Jessica feel a level of contentment she has never found anywhere else.
