It's a huge undertaking for Lillo Gray when she's asked to attend the wedding of her estranged childhood friend Jess Parker. She's not used to stepping out of her comfort zone and isn't sure why Jess invited her in the first place. It turns out that Jess has an ulterior motive—her overbearing parents are forcing her to get married, and she needs all the support she can get to stand up to them before it's too late. When Lillo and Jess's two other friends, Diana and Allie, catch on to the situation, they get Jess out of there quickly, and it's not long before the reclusive Lillo finds herself hosting three houseguests in her small cottage on Lighthouse Beach. What started as a mission to help get Jess's life on the right track ends up affecting each of the women in surprising ways.
VERDICT The latest beach read from Noble (Forever Beach; Whisper Beach) explores the healing power of friendship, appealing to fans of women's fiction, especially works by Nancy Thayer and Elin Hilderbrand.
