Review
Noble’s (Breakwater Bay, 2014) beach read is actually set on the beach—the Jersey Shore, post–Hurricane Sandy. Following a traumatic incident 12 years ago, Vanessa (“Van”) Moran left Whisper Beach, cutting all ties with family and friends, among them her alcoholic father, whom she blames for her mother’s death; her boyfriend, Joe, whom she caught with another girl; and even her surrogate mom, Dorie, who owns a beachfront restaurant, the Blue Crab. Van has since reinvented herself and established a successful career in Manhattan organizing other people’s lives. Now she returns to Whisper Beach, intending to stay just long enough to attend a funeral. But her visit is prolonged when she agrees to take on the task of reorganizing the struggling Blue Crab, and she finds herself drawn back into the community, reconnecting with some of her old crowd. She also discovers that many of her perceptions about the past were based on false assumptions. The male characters are mostly ciphers, but Noble’s depiction of strong female friendship helps make for a satisfying read. -- Quinn, Mary Ellen (Reviewed 06-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 111, number 19, p47)
