An emotional story about a broken marriage and the wife finding her way back to being a woman that she was. in her divorce, all she wanted was the beach house. And maybe the woman she used to be. I found myself drawn to this book and identified with Jillian as I had been quite naïve in life.
Soon secrets came out about her louse of her husband which caused her to rethink her decisions and help the town and its people. I loved the depth of the writing. The book made me stay in its world for a few hours as every moment was sweet. From the first page to last, the book was a delightful read.

Your husband is not the man you thought he was… but how do you move on, when you’re forced to keep his secret?
When Jill Goodman’s picture-perfect marriage implodes, she’s heartbroken. Still reeling from the shock, the only thing she receives in the hasty divorce settlement is the deed to her husband’s sprawling beach house on the New Jersey coastline. Jill never cared about money—only her marriage—but with Marc determined to take everything she owns, the beach house is her only lifeline left.
With no other choice, Jill travels to the shore intending to sell the house quickly—but the task is not as easy as she expects. Still, she can’t help but be charmed by the beautiful seaside town and its sweetly old-fashioned ways. Despite everything, Jill is starting to see a path back to who she was before she met her husband—not the demure, polished housewife she’d become, but the smiling young woman with the strong Jersey accent who loved her family more than anything.
Then Jill dives deeper into Marc’s secrets and she stumbles across something in her husband’s past that changes everything. Could Jill herself have been unknowingly complicit in what Marc did and, if so, what will happen to her when the truth finally comes to light? With Marc determined to bury the evidence, can Jill find a way to save herself before her once perfect husband takes her down with him?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
