Goodreads:  Alison arrives at the beach house in June to spend a month with her restless grandson before he leaves for his freshman year in college. Over a decade before, Alison lost her beloved husband, and has faced life alone ever since. Now she discovers a new life, and possible new love.
August brings together four college friends facing a milestone. Across summer’s final days, they share laughter, tears, and love—revealing long-held secrets and creating new and even more powerful bonds.
World-class wildlife photographer, Matthew, and award-winning war photographer, Lindsey, arrive at the beach house in January, each harboring the very real fear that it will mark the end of their decade-long love affair. Alone in the house’s warm peace, they will be forced to truly look at who they are and what they want, discovering surprising truths that will change their lives forever.

Kritters Thoughts:  Returning to the beach house where each renter rents for a month and usually has some significant reason for taking a month long vacation.  As the previous two books have been re-released with new covers, this one was new and you could tell that the issues that were being dealt with were more on the modern side.  With 9/11 and PTSD as two of the big things, I absolutely loved this one and its characters.

I don't want to say too much in this review and ruin the entire series, but I absolutely love the set up of having owners of the beach house that are present in each of the three books and then renters for the months of June, July and August who are different in each book.  It makes it almost a collection of short stories, but still a cohesive book.

The third in the series and I have no clue if there will be any more books at this point, I wouldn't mind more!  I reviewed the two previous books in this series over the last two days, check them out!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
