Gripping and emotionally compelling, Welcome to Beach Town captures readers from the first chapter and doesn’t let go.
Determined to leave Alara Cove, Nikki Graziola works hard in school, never expecting to eventually be awarded a scholarship to the prestigious Thornton Academy. Her hard work pays off and it is at Thornton where she meets her best friend and forges a deep friendship. But when a tragedy occurs before graduation, valedictorian Nikki decides to speak her truth regarding the circumstances surrounding the loss of her best friend. Suddenly her bright future is gone in an instant and she is ostracized from the very community that celebrated her wins.
Determined to get away from the town and the memories it holds, Nikki flees and follows a dream she didn’t think was reachable as a professional surfer and the mysterious stranger that showed up at the right time.
15 years later after achieving a career in the surf world, and finding a one-of-a-kind love story most people only dream of, Nikki finds herself back in Alara Cove broken and lost. Surrounded by the people she left behind, Nikki is tasked with rebuilding her life once again. Quietly moving forward with this new life, Nikki is just getting her footing when another tragedy occurs involving the students at Thornton Academy, and Nikki must decide to once again share her truth and risk all that she has worked so hard to rebuild.
Susan Wiggs demonstrates again why she is a New York Times Bestseller as she weaves a story of loss, redemption, and family in the idyllic town of Alara Cove. With unique characters and rich side plots, this story is unlike most. Readers will be unable to put it down as they imagine walking the picturesque streets while basking in the warmth of the sun. Unable to predict what will happen next, each page demands to be read until the book is completed.
With sun, waves, and the heart of a small town, Susan has written Welcome to Beach Town as the perfect companion wherever this summer takes you.
