Seaside Dreams (book review)

About the book:


The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.


Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.

My review:

Did you ever read a book and just feel like it made your heart full?

Oh Melissa Foster... you've made me fall in love with yet another of your books.  I want to be in one of Melissa Foster's novels.  I don't even have to be a main character... I'd just be happy to be amongst the group of friends.  (Although, I wouldn't complain if I could be Bella and have her friends and Caden and Evan.)  And it's not even just the characters... Seaside Dreams made me want to drop everything and go live in a cottage in Massachusetts (but only the Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, MA... ).  I'm becoming a complete Melissa Foster fangirl I'm afraid.  My book reviews seem to consist of nothing but me gushing over how much I love the characters and settings and writing.  (Will someone point me in the direction of the Melissa Foster fan club?  There must be one.)

While there were times that I wanted to grab Bella or Caden... or Amy, Tony, Pete, Jenna, Evan... and shake some sense into them, I loved each and every one of them.  I want more of all of them.  The fact that this is #1 in the Seaside Summers series makes my heart happy.
