Review: Barefoot

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Bronwyn Miller

Ah, summer vacation! Even the words alone can cheer the most worldweary soul. Memories of smoky barbecues, lingering walks on the beach and warm sand between your toes all minister to one's badly battered spirit. And this is exactly what the Lyndon sisters Vicki and Brenda along with friend Melanie are counting on when they venture to the family summer house on Nantucket. Each woman is anxiously ...

This book is one of those stories that you devour in just a few days. The story is compelling and you can't put it down. But, in hindsight, now that it's been a few months since I read the book, I ... Read full review

Enjoyed reading this book. It was a bit predictable, but very descriptive and even almost a bit too much fluff. I would still recommend it because it was a great story about "life events". Made me feel grateful for what I have.

I loved this book until the last 50 pages. pretty much the only happy endings i enjoyed were Vicki, Melanie is still with the ass who cheated on her, Brenda financial problems are not resolved, although i did like her being with Walsh in the end. and we don't get the full idea for Josh who is like the best character in the novel. It may of began beautifully and ideal, it ended horribly in my opinion
