I really enjoy the Beach House series by by Mary Alice Monroe. There is something warm, inviting and magical about low-country beach stories. I do not think each novel in the Beach House series can be viewed as stand alone novels though and strongly suggest they be read in order to fully understand what drives the characters and the events that lead them to the Beach House Reunion, which has sadness and conflict but is mainly about rebirth, renewal, letting go and starting over.

That said, and since I have read all the Beach House series in order, I'm beginning to object to the eco-preachiness that came with Beach House Reunion, fully understanding that those readers who simply picked up Beach House Reunion have not been treated to it before. I know it's a fine line for the author to straddle.

I've read every book in this series; I love the Rutledge Family! But...this book? I didn't get my usual sense of closure with a single one of the characters. I really hope the story continues with another book soon!
~Definitely worth reading
~Not as satisfying as the four before it

This is the third in Mary Alice Monroe's Beach House series upon which Hallmark's movie The Beach House starring Andie MacDowell was based.

Cara Rutledge at age 53 is a new mom of her adopted daughter Hope. She's still grieving her late husband Brett. We meet the characters of earlier books again. This book's hurricane is Irma.

It is a satisfying beach book to read as summer draws to a close. There are two loves stories.

Personally I really dislike magical realism.

As usual the Beach House book by Mary Alice Monroe was as good as all her others. They make you feel like you're there on the outer banks of SC. Hope she writes more of them.
