Many thanks to Berkley Romance for the gifted paperback copy!
I loved this book – what a fun summer romance pick! This is a must read for your summer beach reading list. This touched my heart and made me cry happy tears towards the end. The beginning gave me The Parent Trap vibes because there are two girls away from home at summer camp that bond and later discover they’re related.
I absolutely loved it and will 100% recommend it to all. This is my ideal kind of book – a sweet romance with building tension and flirtation, family/friend dynamics where all the love really is there, difficult topics with a range of perspectives and experiences, and one of my favorites: finding yourself and being true and authentic to yourself. In a nutshell, The Beach Trap is the perfect blend of romance and women’s fiction all wrapped up in a beautiful story about sisters coming together and truly coming into their own hearts and lives.
- Trope/ Details: Jewish representation, parents with a second family, half siblings, inheritance, shocking financial situations, money and status, Alzheimer’s
- Steam Rating: PG13 – one open door scene about 3/4 into the book but mild and very sweet.
‘Happiness matters more than what someone else – influencer or not – decides is beautiful. Besides, there’s more to life than looking good on the outside. Especially if you’re just using makeup and clothes to cover up how broken you are on the inside.’
‘I’ve been focusing on the physical beauty of things without acknowledging their emotional impact. Some things are beautiful because of the memories they hold from the past, or the way they make you feel.’
‘The point of life isn’t to look beautiful or even to be happy all the time – that’s impossible. The point of life is to be alive in the world, to feel every emotion, even the messy and painful ones. To challenge yourself, to take risks, to find beauty in the imperfections and be grateful for the opportunity to experience it all.’
