Along the Shore by Rochelle Alers is book three in her The Book Club series. This is Cherie’s story, the last original member of the book club. Kayana’s story is told inThe Seaside Café, and Leah’s story is told in The Beach House.
Cherie Renee Thompson is determined to rise above her low-income upbringing and will do almost anything to reach her lofty goals. Reese Matthews is on his second career and plans to be just as successful as he was with his first. Neither one is looking for love. Did love find them despite themselves?
Rochelle Alers is a must read author for me, and she did not disappoint with Along the Shore. Though I’d read the previous book in this series, I found they read well as standalones. We learn even more about the ladies in the book club. Alers often features interracial relationships and continues to do so here. The plot is compelling with unexpected twists. I enjoyed this novel and rate it 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to all readers of women’s fiction, especially those who enjoy romance and/or multicultural themes.
My thanks to Kensington Books, Dafina, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
