“The Shell Collector is a beautiful story full of love, loss, and second chances.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

From USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle, The Shell Collector is a touching novel of a friendship that crosses generations, and learning how even the smallest gifts can change a life for good.

Two years after her husband’s death, Amanda Whittier has two children to raise alone, an abandoned dream of starting a business, and a fixer-upper cottage by the sea. She has no room in her life for anything else and little interest in moving on after losing the man she loved.

Paul Grant is a relative newcomer to the area, and his work with former military dogs needing rehabilitation has been good for the town. Though he loved once before, he’s convinced he’s not suited for romance and is determined to find meaning—alone—through his work and role in the community.

Widowed Maeve Lindsay was born and raised on Whelk’s Island. Spirited, kind, and a little mischievous, she pours her life into the town. But she carries a secret that shapes her every move.

Together, these three souls find encouragement in the most mysterious places and discover a love that’s bigger than their pain, healing their wounded hearts in ways none of them could have hoped for or expected.

My review:

This story just warmed my heart.  It’s about love, loss, grief, friendship and second chances. The author writes such great characters that you just fall in love with.  The friendship between the older Maeve and the younger mother Amanda was so well written.  It seemed they were destined to be friends.  Amanda crossing paths with her late husband’s best friend and the flood of emotions jumped off the page.

I will usually avoid books that make me emotional, but for some reason, I just didn’t mind with this one.  I laughed and cried reading this one.  This really reminded me of those Hallmark Hall of Fame movies that were on when I was growing up.

If you’re ready to jump in and fall in love with some great characters and experience their love, loss and grief, I’d run out and get this one.
