Sunset Bridge - Emilie Richards A beautifully written story about Happiness Key and the women who inhabit the community. Tracy, a socialite with a name but no money (well, except some beach cottages), has now thawed and is in a relationship with Marsh, but will it go the way Tracy wants it? Jayna, a product of a strict family and arranged marriage, has made the best of a bad situation and comes out on top, but she really wants children and that isn't happening. Wanda has the pie shop of her dreams, but those dreams might be ruined in the form of her daughter, Maggie who leaves her job and boyfriend and moves back to Happiness Key. Alice is taking care of her granddaughter and quickly become part of her life, but what if she loses her?This is just the perfect beach read, to get your mind off things and go inhabit a different place for awhile. You will be swept up in the characters and their stories. Even though there are lots of different threads and angles, the full story is easy to follow since everything intertwines and meshes well together. I couldn't help but be reminded of Debbie Macomber's stories. This is the third book in the series, but I thought it could stand alone. I had no trouble getting into any of the plot points or details. This is a book club pick for a group I just joined. I am going to have to go back and get the first two in the series so I can catch up.
