Too soon for a good beach read?

Castaways.jpg The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand explores how the death of friends can affect people differently. This beach read does a good job of examining love and death from a variety of angles, allowing readers to become fully invested in the story. When Greg and Tess MacAvoy, a young couple with children dies unexpectedly, the lives of their friends (three other married couples) are changed in various ways. Some choose to go on as if nothing happened, some are irreversibly shattered and some choose to recommit to their own lives. The couple leaves behind secrets and relationships that must be explored by the remaining friends. The book is told through multiple points of view and the author does an excellent job bringing it all together at the end. To read Connie's review click here. Meredith @ Central
