Publisher's Summary

Rachel Keats and Jack McGill were artists, deeply in love when they married, until the rush of life took its toll and they divorced. Six years later, Jack puts aside his career as a leading architect to hold a bedside vigil at his ex-wife's hospital bed. Jack begins to see Rachel, his daughters, and the story of his marriage with new eyes. Coast Road celebrates those things in life that matter most - the companionship of friends and the irreplaceable time spent with children and family.

Rich, well written story...a treasure!

This story is so well written, the timing in this book is perfect. Modern characters, that are rich with story. Each person so interesting. The flow and melody of this story just sings. I loved it, can you tell. The author did a fantastic job but even with that the wrong narrator can ruin it. Ms. Hicks...a solid "10". I applaud your work in this book. When you read "Victoria" I swear I could "see" her. That same attention was given to every character. I found myself talking to them. Amazing! This story develops like an archaeological find...the secrets working their way to the surface, so unpredictable.
Thank you everyone. This is treasure for sure.

Touching Love Story

I really liked the story line. While others may think it to unrealistic I think at times we all need to be reminded of true lasting love.

I wanted to like it...

I typically love reading Barbara Delinsky. I was excited to read this one and pre-ordered it. Unfortunately, though I wanted to, I did not enjoy reading it at all. The narration was super slow and caused the book to drag even more than it already was. The 13-year-old character referring to her mother as “Mommy” and the narrator using a baby voice for her grated to the point of distraction. I could not connect to any of the characters. I am an avid reader of this genre and this author and will definitely read anything else she releases. This one just missed the mark in my opinion.
