“On a Coastal Breeze” by Suzanne Woods Fisher is the second story in the series of “Three Sisters Island”. It follows the story of the middle sister, Maddie, as she opens her therapy office on the little island that her family now calls home. We also revisit many other secondary characters from the first story.
I enjoy how the varying perspectives of this story add more meaning to each character. It allows readers to understand more of why each one acts the way they do. I also enjoyed the flashback moments, when the story would jump back in time to when Maddie was just a child, or teenager, and how those particular scenes from her younger years shape the experience she has in the present time. It is actually quite thought-provoking as to how your own past might be affecting your current life choices, emotions, and thoughts.
I wish I could give this book an all-positive review, because I truly enjoyed it, and would recommend it to most people. In my opinion it felt deeper and more thought-provoking than the first book in the series. However, there is one scene in particular that is described in too much detail, and when mistakes were made, I was not always convinced that the characters were truly remorseful of their transgressions, or learned from it what they were supposed to.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed “On a Coastal Breeze”. These books are excellent summer time reading choices, and I am eager to finish the series with the story of the final sister from “Three Sisters Island”.
