Blog Tour: Review of Seaside Whispers by Melissa Foster plus #Giveaway


Seaside Whispers
Melissa Foster

(Seaside Summers)
Publication date: November 30th 2016
Genres: Adult, Romance

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux–an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy–is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.
With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, seductive Mira.
A surprise encounter leads to white-hot passions and midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?
Seaside Summers is a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

Book Review:
Seaside Whispers is a continuation of the Seaside Summers series, but you needn't read the previous books. This was my first of the series and I didn't feel lost. Matt and Mira's love story clearly started in the other books, but it isn't necessary to read those to get the full effect of their tale. 
The novel is a quick summer beach read that will easily take you to the coast. I enjoyed Foster's settings greatly. 
My biggest concern was that the characters were too perfect, even in their flaws. Matt's flaw didn't really fit him actually, and Mira's wasn't even a flaw so much as a natural part of life in the 21st century. At times the characters sound more in their 50s than their 30s.
Overall the novel was enjoyable. 
Recommended for anyone who enjoys romance and needs a quick escape.
