I was in the middle of a bunch of heavy books so this was just the ticket. It is lighter but still explores serious issues like control and alcoholism, with strong psychic women who make jewelry out of sea glass. (I'm a sucker for psychics.) This is probably classified as chick lit or romance and would make the perfect beach read.
Thanks to the publisher for letting me read it early!
I'm so thrilled that I received an early copy of this book to read and review. I loved this book! Devoured it in one weekend because I had a hard time putting it down. It covers so many themes, such as regret, fear, loss, forgiveness, acceptance, family and hope. I don't want to give too much away but it is a little genre bending. It combines mystery, romance, and a touch of magical realism all at once. I really enjoyed the mother-daughter bond, as well as the other relationships covered. I foun ...more
Loved All The Breaking Waves! What an intriguing, unique story. I was engrossed with all of the characters and the many mysteries. The love between Molly, Cassie, Owen and Nana is palpable. I found the premise of the story imaginative, thoughtful, suspenseful and heartbreaking all at once. Kerry Lonsdale has become a favorite author of mine and I cannot wait to read her future novels!
I'm so thrilled Kerry sent me an ARC copy along with some trinkets and I must note I had difficulty in reading this one. My own "Cassie" ( 12yo Niece) passed away from a bad 7 car accident which resulted in 4 deaths she being the only child so please keep this in mind reading this review as it's still heartbreaking for my family.
I grappled with this book since it was received and emotionally this book hit me to the core literally. I wept, I cried, I went back and forth with triggers and emotions ...more
Kerry Lonsdale continues with another heartfelt tale, following her debut, Everything We Keep, with her latest upcoming, ALL THE BREAKING WAVES —an emotional family domestic suspense saga of dark secrets, mystery, and magical realism.
Lonsdale paints a vivid portrait of a contemporary family filled with secrets, strife and ultimately—love.
ALL THE BREAKING WAVES is a mystery suspense with strong twists of romantic, historical, and paranormal elements. A talented sea glass artist, Molly Brenna ...more
I've read amazing things about newer author, Kerry Lonsdale's, books, and this was my first one written by her. While there is a strong paranormal element (some of the women are "gifted" with insights of different types), the themes of the book are family secrets, mother-daughter relationships, grief, and loss. Lonsdale has a great writing style with impeccable pacing. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more from her!
