Book Review- The Cliff House by RaeAnne Thayne

Two sisters and their aunt find that their dreams can happen at anytime, anyplace as they navigate love, life and what it means to be a family.

My Rating for The Cliff House: 3.5 Stars

Available at Amazon

Two sisters and their aunt find their lives are in flux as they reveal secrets that have been hidden for years. When their mother died, Daisy and Beatriz Davenport moved in with their aunt Stella in Cape Sanctuary. They never realized Stella put her dreams on hold to be the parent they needed and as now the girls are grown and gone, Stella realizes its time to focus on her dreams, but she has a secret that will rock their little family.

Bea got pregnant too young and her marriage was rocky. As Bea finds love with an old friend and raises her daughter, Marisol, her ex returns to cause havoc in their lives once again.

Daisy always played it safe and when she meets a man who makes her risk so much, Daisy is blindsided by her feelings for him and makes her question everything she thought she knew about life, love and relationships.

Three women are at the crossroads and as true happiness waits for them, it will take the strength of all three to get their hearts desire filled with love and happiness.

I really enjoyed THE CLIFF HOUSE by one of my go to favorite authors, RaeAnne Thayne. This is her first women’s fiction book and I must admit; it took me awhile to get into the book as the main characters didn’t quite connect with me right away. Once I finally got into the characters journey, I fell in love with Bea, Daisy and Stella. The story flows smoothly and the characters are just enjoyable as well as highly relatable. This is an author who can capture her readers hearts with her amazing complex characters and deliver a heartfelt story filled with a few twists and turns you definitely don’t see coming.

THE CLIFF HOUSE centers on Daisy, Bea and Stella. Stella raised the girls after their mother died, putting her dreams off to the side as she cared for the sisters and loved them. But its time for Stella and the girls to figure out where they want to go in life and to realize that love and dreams can happen at any age and at any time. With her trademark writing style, the author delivers a story that steals the heart and never let’s go. The characters are complex, relatable and highly enjoyable to boot. I love the interactions between the sisters and aunt as well as meeting many other characters in Cape Sanctuary. If you haven’t read one of this author’s books before, this is a perfect introduction to her work though I highly recommend her Haven Point series as well. I can’t wait to see where the author goes next in the women’s fiction genre and what else she has up her sleeve for the readers to enjoy.
