Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks


I'm currently reading "Safe Haven" by Nicholas Sparks, and I love this book!

From the authors website:
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing,
Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.

But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo’s empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards . . . and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.

** Im really enjoying the romance and beauty of this book, the way that Katie lets her guard down and starts to fall in love. She loves the town and the people of Southport and tries to move forward, and to forget her bad memories from her past.

Nicholas Sparks has written many novels and has many fans around the world.

I enjoy his books, and would recommend them to anyone that likes romance and intriguing storylines.

  2. I haven't read this book yet but I'm going to. It sounds intriguing. I just LOVE Nicholas Sparks.
    I've had my head stuck in a book all day today. Something I picked up at Dollar General but it's a pretty good book.

  3. I read this and liked it ok, but kind of felt like he was writing it purposefully for the big screen. It would make a great movie!
