Struggling to care for her sick father and raise her teenage children alone, a divorced mother spends the weekend at a North Carolina inn, only to meet a former surgeon running from his past.
Adrienne Willis is 45 and has been divorced for three years, abandoned by her husband for a younger woman. The trials of raising her teenage children and caring for her sick father have worn her down, but at the request of a friend and in hopes of respite, she’s gone to the coastal village of Rodanthe in North Carolina to tend the local inn for the weekend. With a major storm brewing, the time away doesn’t look promising…until a guest named Paul Flanner arrives.
At 54, Paul is a successful surgeon, but in the previous six months his life has unraveled into something he doesn’t recognize. Estranged from his son and recently divorced, he’s sold his practice and his home and has journeyed to this isolated town in hopes of closing a painful chapter in his past. Adrienne and Paul come together as the storm brews over Rodanthe, but what begins between them over the weekend will resonate throughout the rest of their lives, intertwining past and future, love and loss.

My Thoughts


I don’t think I have enough to say about this book to justify a full review but I am going to do it anyway.

I can’t believe I have now read 2 Nicholas Sparks books that have gotten less than 4 stars. I mean what is happening? I didn’t hate this book but I didn’t love it either. It falls in the ok category.

Normally with his books the romance sucks me in and I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what’s going to happen but that didn’t happen with this book. I just didn’t feel the chemistry between the characters which made me not care as much.

I did get a little emotional in the end when something was revealed but other than that I was just like ok that was good.

    1. I’m the same. Some of his books make me cry like a baby and some I just get a little teary eyed. I have give all of his books 4-5 stars except the last 2 I’ve read by him. I am working my way through the last 8 books of his that I haven’t read yet in anticipation for his new release in September. Thank you!! 🤞the next one will be better.


  1. Too bad this one was not up to your expectations. I loved his last one, so hopefully it was just a fluke. I do remember this one not being up to his usual standard for me as well.
