    A Must Read

    Sunrise on Half Moon Bay is an amazing and emotional story that is pure Robyn Carr as you can hear her voice through the words. This story examines the joys of sisterhood as well as the importance of embracing change. Reading this amazing story had me laughing, crying, and empathetic for these two sisters as their lives are suddenly changing. Sisters Adele and Justine were never close as they were born twenty years apart. This age difference made it difficult for these two to truly know each other. Addie dropped out of college and became the caretaker for her ailing parents while successful lawyer Justine covered the expenses. Now that their parents are gone, each woman is facing a life crisis. Adele doesn’t know what to do with her life or how to live for herself while Justine’s marriage is falling apart. The sisters realize that by supporting each other they will get through these life challenges. Together they will find the strength to survive their failures, work through their challenges and discover what they want from life. Both Adele and Justine can be happy and enjoy their lives, but first they must find the courage to fight for what they want in life. Ms. Carr wrote a story that reflects family dynamics and personal trauma that many readers will be able relate to. This is an amazing and emotional story that is not to be missed. This rich tale is filled with visual descriptions, family and personal challenges, in addition to endearing characters. I highly recommend Sunrise on Half Moon Bay to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Strong story with powerful women and a sweet story

    I love stories about sisters, especially sister who have not always seen eye to eye but still love and support each other. Addie and Justine have a large age difference between them. They didn’t bond over late nights, gossip about boys, fight over bedrooms, or who gets to shower first. They were still sisters who love each other. Yet, at the same time they both had to start their lives over. Justine’s marriage fell apart and their parents, who Addie had been taken care of, passed away. They both had to find a way to make their new lives happy and they came together as sisters to make that happen for them both. The strength and love the sister’s showed each other and those around them made me want them to find their new happiness. They were both strong, successful, and loving ladies that took the rough turns in life and let them guide them to find new ways to become better people. They also showed Justine’s daughters that even when life knocks you down you get back up and keep going. Justine and Addie are great role models. Sunrise on Half Moon Bay is a strong story with powerful women and a sweet story. I recommend picking up your copy.

    A story of second chances, family & happiness

    Sunrise on Half Moon Bay by Robyn Carr has Adele Descaro contemplating what she wants to do with her life now. She has spent the last eight years caring for her parents. Adele had been halfway through her master’s degree when her mother needed her to care for her father. Adele and her sister, Justine Somersby have never been close because of the twenty-year age difference between them. Adele is thankful for Justine covering the household expenses plus providing her with a stipend. Justine is a successful lawyer with a house husband and two teenage daughters. Now, though, her marriage is falling apart, and Justine has a chance to start anew. Both sisters are unsure how to move forward. But together they can figure it out and be better for it. Sunrise on Half Moon Bay is a heartwarming story. Adele and Justine are getting a chance to change their lives. The hard part, of course, is figuring out what you want to do and getting the courage to do it. I thought the characters were realistic along with their situations. Both sisters must recover and learn to trust again. Only when they decide what will make them happy, can they be open to a new relationship. I thought the story had a good flow and moved along at a steady pace. I did feel that there was too much repetition. The same details would be repeated two to four times. I liked seeing the sisters get to know each other. I can see many women relating to the two main characters. I could have done without the foul language (mild) and a graphic, intimate scene (it did not go with the rest of the book). I do want readers to know that there is a domestic violence situation in the story. My favorite phrase from the book is “Out of the ashes comes the beauty.” Sunrise on Half Moon Bay is an uplifting story that is perfect to read on a stormy afternoon or while sitting poolside. Sunrise on Half Moon Bay is a story about second chances, family and happiness.

    A fab read

    The book was simply unputdownable, as each word had a wealth of emotion hidden in it. I kept craving this book in between my chores as I wanted to know how both of them would manage. Each had to make a new start and that took courage. I got to see each phase of their development and it gladdened my heart. Every character added a layer to the story, a gem they were to take me into their world. I adored the sisters. Their pain and happiness became mine down the pages. I couldn’t stay far from them until I got to the last line. The book is a must-read.

    Not one of the best from Robyn Carr

    I did enjoy the story, but not as good as her usual novels. Really different somehow, a real "poor me" woman's story.
