Whisper Beach by Shelley Noble

About the Book
When a group of friends reunite in the idyllic beach town where they grew up, they must reevaluate their loyalty to one another or lose their friendship forever.

Twelve years ago, Vanessa “Van” Moran fell in love and lost her virginity – but not to the same boy. She fled Whisper Beach desperate and pregnant, never telling a soul about her secret. Now a professional Manhattan organizer, she must return home for the first time to attend the funeral of her best friend’s husband. Van intends to only stay for a weekend, but her plans fall by the wayside as the troubles of this coastal town draw her in.

Dorie, the owner of the pier’s infamous Blue Crab Restaurant where Van and her friends worked as teenagers, enlists Van’s help to save the nearly bankrupt eatery. While Van throws herself into this new task, the man she once loved reenters her life, willing to pick up where they left off.

As the restaurant begins to thrive and Van reconnects with old friends, trouble comes from an unexpected source and she realizes she must face the decisions of her past or sacrifice this new life she has so carefully built.

For Van, this summer will test the meaning of friendship and trust – and how far love can bend before it breaks.

Shelley Noble’s latest novel, Whisper Beach, offers its readers an enjoyable and entertaining summer read. To the quaint beach town of Whisper Beach, Vanessa “Van” Moran returns for a funeral and surprisingly ends up sticking around a bit longer than planned. In the time that follows, a quirky small-town cast of characters surrounds Van and their interactions involving friendship and moving forward from the unforgettable past highlight the well-paced storyline. As Noble drew me into the world of Whisper Beach, I found it to be a delightful and light read and would easily say it is a perfect choice for readers of contemporary fiction looking for a good book. I recommend it.
