This series keeps getting better! Oct. 18 2010
By Ane Mulligan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved the first 2 books in the Beach House series, Beach House and Castles in the Sand, by Sally John. When Trish Perry continued the series with Beach Dreams, I was skeptical and ended up loving it. Sunset Beach is even better.

A compelling story of betrayal, revelation, and forgiveness, Sunset Beach is filled with surprises. Once again, Perry made me chuckle and in the midst of drama. Rich characters, a quirky beach house, and old friends Julian and Zeke make Sunset Beach a must read. Novel Journey and I give it a very high recommendation.

Sunset Beach is a must read! Dec 1 2009
By M. Vasquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have wanted to read a Trish Perry book for a while, and I finally got the chance. Sunset Beach is a wonderful book with incredible scenery, powerful and gripping story lines, and characters that will stay with you long after you've finished the book.

I really enjoyed the dynamics between the different characters in this book. Each character provides something special to this wonderful group that Trish gathers together in this story. Sonny was my favorite, but I found that I could relate to them all in different ways.

Trish transports you off to this beautiful beach and eclectic beach house, making this book a wonderful and entertaining escape. I truly loved this book and highly recommend it. It's has a little bit of everything with drama, relationships, romance, and great Christian themes that we can all apply to our own lives. I look forward to reading more books from Trish Perry in the future.

A complimentary copy was provided for an honest review.

California Dreamin' June 8 2009
By Keleigh Crigler Hadley, author of Revenge Inc. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Gotta love a book about Southern California! Being a native daughter, I am partial to books that highlight the glories of living in the Golden state.

That being said, I enjoyed this book! Our heroine Sonny is likeable, realistic, and struggles with the same things I did when I was a coed in college. (In San Diego also) Our hero, Grig is the type of boy you want your daughters to marry, and if you have daughters give them this book to read so they can see the benefits of being with a strong Christian man.

This is a great book to read on vacation and well worth the time and money spent.

Exposing Secrets Aug. 17 2010
By Connie Arnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Trish Perry's novel, Sunset Beach, draws the reader into an enticing story about a young woman seeking to find some answers about her past. Sonny Miller secretly invites her Aunt Teresa to join her and her mother at a beach house for a week together. Sonny's mother and her sister, Teresa, have not seen each other for many years, and the reunion leads to some shocking surprises as secrets from the past are exposed. Fears, mistrust, romance, and God's grace working to bring a broken family back together make Sunset Beach a great read, offering touching moments, bits of humor and a good supply of hope.

Family Trip to the Beach July 12 2009
By Deborah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's time to go back to the beach house with a new set of characters. This time it's a mother-daughter story with summer romances, past secrets and self discovery along the way. The story had many twists and turns that I didn't see coming. There were times when I thought I knew what was going to happen and was delighted to see that the story didn't go in that direction. Serious topics such as eating disorders and kleptomania are discussed but handled in a way that doesn't detract from the beachy atmosphere. I could practically picture it when Sonny enters the house for the first time and sees the beach house in it's delightfully tacky glory. Family issues are the central plot of this storyline. This ranges from Sonny and her mother's relationship to her mother and aunt's relationship and even to Irina dealing with her birth family.

I was a little sad not to see any of the characters from Trish's previous novels pop up in this book. I've just gotten used to seeing Kara,Ren, Jeremy and Tiffany all the time and I missed seeing a familiar face. This book is also more romance than the previous books and had less of a chick lit feel. If I had to label it, this would be a contemporary romance book. If there was anything I had a real problem with in this book, it was the use of the extremely short chapters. There would be chapters that were only a page and a half. While this may not be a problem to others, to me it just made the flow of the story keep halting. Some chapters would consist only of a character's single action or though and didn't really help to keep the story moving along. It felt slightly disjointed to me while reading. This however was a minor qualm.

Reading this book made me feel like I was at the beach house myself. I could hear the waves crashing, feel the sun's warmth on me, and just wanted to kick back and relax on the sand and get a tan. This book is perfect for a day at the beach or if you can't make it there yourself, it's the next best thing for a getaway.
