A Beach Wish by Shelley Noble ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

I love reading books about the beach during the summer. This was much more than a beach read - it was the story about family and love and a fun book to read. There were a lot of characters and I think some of them could have been left out with no problem but I was able to keep up with all of the main characters. My favorite had to be Zoe. She was on a quest to fulfill her mother's final wish and even though it made absolutely no sense to her why her mother wanted her ashes scattered on a beach that no one in the family had ever heard of, she was going to do it and then she was going to find out WHY Wind Chime Beach and WHAT her mother's connection was to the people who lived there.

Zoe always wanted to be involved in the music business. After she failed her audition at Julliard, she went to business school as her family wanted and was thrilled to get a job in the music industry. When her job got downsized, she was left wondering what she wanted to do with her life. When her mother's final wish was for Zoe to scatter her ashes, she decided to do it despite the disapproval of her three brothers. When she gets to town, she runs into a lot of interesting people including an old hippie couple who still live life in a commune. She wonders what the connection is between her straight-laced and proper mother with this place and with the older couple. What she finds out will totally change her opinion of her mother as well as change her future plans for her life.

This was an easy read about family and love. Most important it was a reminder of the fact that our parents had lives before we were born and they were often very different than what we imagine.
