Sea Glass Island (Ocean Breeze #3) by Sherryl Woods
I have enjoyed the three Ocean Breeze novels that start the newest series by Sherryl Woods. This is Ethan and Samantha's story but it really deals with the whole group of the Ocean Breeze characters. Emily and Boone's wedding is almost here. Everyone is rushing around to all the events for it. Everyone is trying to throw Ethan and Samantha together as often as possible. It is surprising how everyone gets on the bandwagon, well almost everyone.
The plot of Ethan and Samantha seems rushed a little especially the ending, I do like Ethan. He is a Doc. and local hero who lost a leg in service. He also lost his fiancé when she had problems dealing with Ethan's changes. He does not believe in love right now. He is Boone's best man in the wedding.
Samantha is the oldest of the three girls. Her career as a actress has not been going great lately. She is getting older and having a hard time getting work. She is wondering is now the time to make changes in her life and move back home. In high school she had a crush on Ethan. She even sleeps in his high school football jersey that she got at a yard sale years ago. That is what she is wearing when Ethan walks into the kitchen to pick up something for Emily.
Emily and Boone still have some issues of where they will live after the wedding to work out.
Gabi and Wade want to wait till after Emily's wedding to start their wedding plans. They want a lot less stress for their day. Gabi has a hard time being a way from her baby. Wade is bonding great with her.
Sam is being more of a father in his daughters lives. He even finds someone to love in this story.
This book is full of drama and life. Working to build a better future for each character. You want to know what happens next in their lives and whose story might be told next. I want to keep coming back to Sand Castle Bay and see what is happening next in their lives and community.
In some ways I think this would be a hard novel to stand alone because it carries on so many storylines from the previous two books. Since I had read the first two books I was excited to read the last of Ocean Breeze trilogy.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

Under summer skies, New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods evokes family, friendship and heartfelt emotion
With her two younger sisters heading for the altar, will Samantha Castle exchange old dreams for new ones? Lately she'd rather be on the North Carolina coast with family than in New York with agents and actors. Though she vows not to let her teenage crush on Ethan Cole influence her decision, it's hard to ignore her feelings for the local war hero.
Ethan lost more than his leg in Afghanistan. He lost his belief in love. Even being surrounded by couples intent on capturing happily-ever-after won't open this jaded doctor's heart. It's going to take a sexy, determined woman-one who won't take no for an answer.
