Safe Haven - Nicholas Sparks
Katie shows up in a North Carolina town with no past but hoping to build a new future. There she meets Jo, a grief counselor who becomes a friend, and Alex, a widowed single-father who might be ready to move on as well.
Sparks’s character description of the person from Katie’s past was really quite disturbing. Not in a “have to put the book down” kind of way. But in a “Wow. And there really *are* people in the world who think that way” kind of way. It was completely believable.
Some parts of the plot and turns in the story were a bit too “expected” and convenient for my taste.
However, overall, I still absolutely enjoyed the narrative and the way in which it was told.
