At The River's Edge - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel

As an attorney, Sophie Enright, is passionate about her job.  But when she finds her boyfriend in the back seat of his car with another woman, she starts to reevaluate what she wants out of life and where she wants to be.  Knowing that she needs to get away for a bit, she decides to go to St. Dennis, Maryland to visit her brother.  While there, he tries to talk Sophie into joining the family law firm.   But it’s not the law firm that has Sophie considering relocating.  It’s the abandoned restaurant, which at first glance isn’t aesthetically pleasing, but that Sophie sees lots of potential in.

There’s just something about that old restaurant that Sophie is drawn to.  Although there’s much work that needs to be done before it can be a full functioning restaurant again, Sophie is up for the challenge.  Now she just needs to convince the owner to sell.  But is Sophie getting in over her head?  Her only experience with restaurants is when she worked at Shelby’s Diner while in college.  But the memories of that job are the most happy and enjoyable of any job she’s ever had. 

I can’t even begin to express how much I love this book!  From the very beginning I found myself rooting for Sophie.  Despite some trials and tribulations, she refuses to allow life to defeat her!  Her strength and determination are infectious and I don’t think that the author could have written her character any better!  This is a must read for any woman desiring a book about strength, courage and following your dreams!
