New York Times bestselling author Joanne DeMaio returns to The Seaside Saga and her New England beach town, where secrets carry on salt air breezes.

It's been a long, hot summer in Stony Point. As temperatures rise on the Connecticut coast, so do the secrets. Everyone's got one. Jason and Maris, Celia and lobsterman Shane, the beach commissioner, and especially innkeeper Elsa. With the passing summer days, each secret--sad, shocking, and sweet--unfurls like a breaking wave.

Can you keep the beach friends' Salt Air Secrets? Just turn beneath the stone railroad trestle, walk past the shingled cottages, and hear the whispering marsh grasses. In this novel, rumors are likely to drift your way on that salt-soaked air by the sea.

My thoughts about Salt Air Secrets ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"If it's true that salt air cures what ails you, Shane Bradford hopes everyone he knows is taking a good ling breath of it."

What can I say? I absolutely love this Seaside Saga series and I love it when I get to take a trip back to Stony Point and visit the whole gang again.

Salt Air Secrets delivers just what this title indicates—the story is full of secrets. Everyone has a secret that they tell someone else and then they ask them to keep it. So many secrets. But I was left with the thought that, in that close-knit, caring community, how safe are those secrets? People care too much not to get involved and draw their friends in to help.

But by the end of the book, there were still so many secrets being held close to the vest, with one of them being a big one that no one knows.... yet. I can't wait for the next book to find out what it is and to find out how everyone's complicated lives unfold.

Seriously, if you haven't read this series yet, what are you waiting for? You will love Stony Point and all of the wonderful friends who are such an important part of this community. I can't recommend it enough!

I received a copy of Salt Air Secrets from the author and this is my honest opinion.
