Roxanne St Claire’s Barefoot in the Sand is the perfect Summer time read! There is nothing I didn’t love about this book, from the wacky secondary characters to Lacey and Clay themselves. Barefoot in the Sand comes in with a roar, when Lacey’s because house is blown to bits by a hurricane. Rather than falling apart Lacey sees this as a chance to rebuild her life for herself and her teenage daughter, so she decides to take a chance and do what she has always dreamed of doing, running a bed and breakfast right there on the shores of Barefoot Bay. In walks Clay the “architect” or so he attempts to make Lacey believe. Clay is full of his own family secrets and commitment issues, that he’s willing to give Lacey her dream for free. With a cast of zany troubled friends and neighbors this book will have you dreaming of love all while picturing yourself on a sandy beach with the waves tickling your toes. Barefoot in the Sand is such a delightful departure from Ms. Claire’s previous books. After reading this delightful book I cannot wait to return to Barefoot Bay and the following stories.
