Short captivating story of personality clashes when two people are attracted but both are so caught up in themselves that they deign the attraction. Sonia is a fiery, modern woman and brassy with it but obviously has a sift heart. Dave is a successful fashion designer who has been fleeced is now very untrusting of everyone. Little description of the wonderful old house this is played out in [? Queenslander] and nothing of the scenery other than tourists. This book would suit a short plane or train ride to fill in time.
Sonia is lonely. She hides behind brightly colored dresses and pretends she's an expert when it comes to relationships, but deep down she's insecure. She's a skilled tarot card reader and the business she runs with her sister and best friend used to be a success, but ever since they both fell in love they're spending less and less time at the big house at Bondi Beach where they initially all lived. When her sister invites fashion designer Dave for dinner Sonia doesn't expect him to be rude to her, but that's exactly what happens. Dave is dealing with a big problem and never meant to hurt her feelings. Will he be able to make it up to Sonia and will she like him once she gives him a second chance?
Beach Walk is a fascinating story about true love. Dave is a creative man. He designs beautiful clothes and has made a name for himself with his amazing style. Something is bothering him though and finding out if it could be fixed kept me on the edge of my seat. Sonia initially tries to avoid this grumpy man, but he melts her heart when he sees the woman underneath the explosion of color and does his best to make her feel better about herself. They are a fascinating unusual duo and I couldn't wait to find out how their story would end.
Annie Seaton combines a stunning setting with emotional turmoil and plenty of exciting twists and turns. It was fun to see how Sonia and Dave get over their initial hostility and slowly start to like each other. I loved how natural their relationship develops. Annie Seaton knows how to write a great feelgood story and Beach Walk is another delightful lighthearted romance. It's captivating, endearing and sweet.
If you want a fun and quirky quick read, then this one is for you. This is book 3 in the series. I have to be honest and say this is the first one I read in this series, but I am now definitely going to read the others. I just love Sonia and her quirky ways. Sonia takes offence to been told “All you need is a bowl of fruit on your head, and you‘d be perfect” on Christmas Day. She sees her opportunity to try and get back at him by reading his coffee dregs. Will what she sees change her mind? Sonia knows what she must do in the end. All the characters are truly relatable. The story line is very interesting and deals with real-life issues. I adored this book, it was a great fun read. I would recommend this book.
