This certainly isn't a traditional sappy love story that Sparks usually writes. Sure it has the love story and it's set in North Carolina, but he puts in an element of danger. I have read all of his books and I love them all, however I am definitely tired of the "I love you" on the first date that practically occurs in all of his novels. The rest of this novel makes up for that quick love. It truly is impossible to put down. I made the mistake of starting it before bed, figuring I would read a few chapters and go to sleep - Well, I stayed up all night and finished it. They way it's written is strategic and effective in keeping the reader wanting more (which is why I had to finish it in one night). Sparks has said that this is the next movie adaptation and I'm sure it will work well. There is something for everyone: love story, family life, internal conflicts, danger, and a twist at the end. Well worth the money (the physical book is more $ than the Kindle version - so I don't know what everyone is complaining about; he's a best-seller, it came out yesterday - of course it's not going to be $5!) Overall, I loved it and I don't regret my purchase at all.

Prompted me to visit the place. Feel in love with the place southport :)

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This book is essentially set in Southport North Carolina and follows the life of a woman named Erin. It is here that she begins a new life for herself after escaping an abusive relationship at the hands of her husband. She endeavors to maintain anonymity and privacy using a new identity and calls herself Katie. Despite her efforts she meets and befriends a neighbor named Jo and a widower named Alex to whom she becomes romantically and intimately connected. Their future, safety, and happiness are at risk because Katie's husband Kevin (to whom she is still legally married) is obsessed with trying to find her ... [edited for spoilers] ... There is a good resolution to the story and an enjoyable outcome for readers.

I really enjoyed this book much more then I did the movie. I love how Sparks truly develops his characters and fleshes them out a lot more than other authors.
