Amy thought she had it figured out—followed her heart and moved forward…but life isn’t always so simple. Things tend to drag you back to familiarity, or in Amy’s case—people. Wesley returns from his stint of love and betrayal, and has a favor to ask of her. When Amy agrees to help, all that was moving forward in her life comes to a halt.
As Amy tries to fix the loved ones around her, she begins to lose all that she’s gained. And when the smoke clears, she’s more confused about what’s meant to be and who it’s meant to be with.

In an Oyster Shell –  I really loved the first book and was sorely disappointed with this book, I feel the author did not do the overall story justice.

The Pearls – All the basic elements of writing craft are present.

The author handled multiple sub-plots well.

The Sand – Character development is very critical in story development. The main character in this book didn’t grow she digressed. She seems to play the victim for most of the story and then hurts someone else just as badly as she was hurt. I guess it was a reasonable conclusion, not all stories turn out in happy endings. A character being worse then when they started is unacceptable to me.

I don’t usually post reviews lower than a three but I had an agreement that I would post the review.
