Book Review: Circle in the Sand by Lia Fairchild

13 01 2014


Title: Circle in the Sand

Author:  Lia Fairchild

Genre: Women’s Fiction

My Rating: 4 Stars

<em>Circle in the Sand</em> tells the story of four long-time friends(Jax, Sage, Ned and Emily) as they revisit their bonds and friendship during 30 something crises of discovering who and what they really are. Each of them, in their own way, stands on a cross road of choices that will impact them for the long term.  Are they bold enough to step out and beyond and push through the barriers that are holding them back?

I found this book to be a nice, light Chick litty/women’s fiction read.  The plot pulled me through the pages.  The author kept the reader in the dark as to some of conflicts, or barriers facing each of them, which compelled me to push through to find out the truths, the answers and what each one would do. It was an ensemble style cast of characters – each chapter told in the first person voice of the 4 main people, but also within the telling, a variety of different minor characters with equally as much panash as the main ones, found their way into the story and our hearts.

Set in Southern California, it has a beach read feel with just a little more heart and soul.  Recommend for lovers of Elin Hildebrand, Claire Cooke, and Kate Jacobs.   

Note: This is just me reviewing this book.  The author, Lia Fairchild, is an independent author who I have known loosely through social media for a few years – although this is the first book of hers that I have read. I got the book through the Amazon Prime Lending Library, and enjoyed it so much that I thought I’d review it on the blog as well as my usual Goodreads location. Lia has written several other books, and her library can be checked out on Amazon here.
