Perfect beach read. ( )

Light beach reading. ( )

This is such a sweet, easy, and fun read! It also has some very interesting characters and plot lines for a Sparks novel. I really enjoyed it. ( )

I enjoy the way Nicholas Sparks writes and brings the main characters to life even if the plot is a little predictable - I wanted Katie and Alex to fall in love, but I didn't imagine all the twists of how this would happen. ( )
  MelAnnC | Feb 28, 2016 |
Has Nicholas Sparks ever written a bad book? Nope. I loved how Safe Haven constantly keeps the reader guessing. There are lots of unexpected turns, too. At about the middle of the book, I thought that the ending would be very predictable. I was definitely wrong. The ending was certainly a twist.

Pros: Suspense, unexpected twists, and plenty of mystery will keep you spellbound until the end.

NOTE - Although this has a middle-grade reading level, the content is for more mature audience (read: high school and above).

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 044654759X, Hardcover)

When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.

But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo's empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards . . . and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.
