Seaside Letters by Denise Hunter

Seaside Letters by Denise Hunter delves into the secrets held Sabrina, a waitress, at a Nantucket diner. She feels unlovable after being left six days before her wedding by her fiance, and she runs off only to find an unlikely relationship through an internet chat site. Little does she know that the man whom she loves, also loves her and knows who she is! After being "hired" by Tucker to find the internet date of his dreams (Sabrina), the ruse continues until all is found out...even a secret that Sabrina thought was too horrible for her to face.

This book was predictable from the first page until the last. I thought the plot and characters were shallow, and they left me wanting something more from them. In an effort to provide mystery, the author attempts to suppress secrets from the reader in hopes that they will be riveted by the story. It doesn't happen because all secrets are let out of the bag too early within the book, and the ending unrealistically and quickly ties everything into a neat little bow. The only conflict for me in this book was whether or not to continue reading it.
