Book Review - Chasing Sunsets by Eva Marie Everson

Publisher's blurb:
Sometimes you get a second chance at your first love
Kimberly Tucker's life hasn't turned out the way she thought it would. While her ex is living it up, she struggles to understand what went wrong. When her two sons end up spending five weeks of summer vacation with their father, Kim plans a respite at the family vacation home on tiny Cedar Key. As she revisits the long-forgotten past, she discovers that treasures in life are often buried, and sometimes you do get a second chance at love.
Let yourself get swept away to an island retreat of warm tropical breezes, sandy beaches, and the most glorious sunsets you can imagine.

My review: I enjoyed reading this book. It was really easy to get involved in the story. It had interesting believable characters. My only criticism is that it seemed to end abruptly. The last chapter eludes to a sequel, at least I hope so, otherwise it makes no sense.

I kind of like when a book ends that way and then they have a leader page saying something along the lines of "Find out more about Patsy's intriguing life in "Title of new book here" coming out in XXXX."

That at least lets me know that a) there is a 2nd book on the way and b) when to expect/look for it. Makes for a good sales tool as well.

Overall, I would recommend this book to others.

I didn't choose this one, sort of wish I did now.
