Audio Book Review: The Beach Escape by Rachel Magee

What a sweet and fun beach read! I listened to the audio version of this Hallmark story and enjoyed both the female and the male narrator.

I really liked the way Molly and Grant met and ended up becoming not only coworkers, but friends. It was clear to me, the reader, that these two were falling for each other and definitely were a great match. It was fun to see what adventures Grant took Molly on. He had so many great ideas of things in the area to show her and his expeditions usually required her to step a bit out of her comfort zone and embrace something new.

I was frustrated with Molly just a bit as she allowed herself to let her fear rule her when it came to giving her heart to Grant. It seemed to me that she believed that her previous break up meant that she should never try to love again, which made a relationship with Grant something to fear. Of course, I was glad when they were able to work things out. This story was very happy and uplifting to listen to.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Beach adventures.
New beginnings.
And turtles.

Molly Lawrence could use an escape. After all, her fiancé dumped her at her rehearsal dinner for her best friend. Fortunately, she has a short-term veterinarian assignment in Emerald Cove, Florida. A friendly workplace, beaches, and summer—what could be better?

Grant Torres shows up with a patient she wasn’t expecting: a giant loggerhead sea turtle. Soon Molly is immersed with helping Grant at the turtle hospital he manages, and work leads to snorkeling, sunset sails, a wedding date—and unexpected feelings. But even as they help injured turtles return to the sea, Molly and Grant both plan to leave soon on new adventures of their own. Can Molly heal her own heart? And could love turn out to be the ultimate destination?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Rachel wrote her first novel when she was twelve and entered it into a contest for young author/illustrators. Unfortunately, the judges weren’t impressed with her stick figures. So she dropped the dream of becoming a world famous illustrator and stuck to spinning stories. When she’s not busy working on her latest book, she loves to travel with her family and friends. By far, her favorite destination is the beach, which tends to work its way into most of her stories. Between vacations, you can find her at home in The Woodlands, TX with her wonderful husband, their two adventurous kids and a couple of spirited pets, all of whom share Rachel’s love of the ocean. Well, except the cat and dog. They’re both afraid of water.
