*Book Review & Giveaway* Seaside Secrets by Melissa Foster


The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.


Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

My Review
I've spent so much time with these people in the Seaside series I feel like they're old friends. Melissa Foster has done such an amazing job developing them all and making them all so relatable in so many ways. This one.....[insert dreamy sigh here].....I was pretty dang stoked to read the Tony and Amy story! I've been waiting and hoping for Amy to get her chance! The history between Tony and Amy could help or hinder their chances and with the life changing offer Amy gets time is of the essence! I highly suggest this's got it, secrets from the past and the group of girls at the cottages!
 I've read all of the books in this series and I was still surprised about the "secret" mentioned in the title. The great thing about these books is that you get to know the characters but there aren't any spoilers. I do suggest reading them all in order as it makes the stories flow together quite seamlessly. I'm sure you could read it as a stand alone....but why? The rest of the books in the series are all equally good. This is one of my favorites so far though.
