I started this book and quickly put it down because the writing was terrible. I tried it again about a week later, got through maybe three more pages, and stopped again. I'm all for a silly beach read, but the writing was intolerably cheesy and juvenile.

I wasn't able to finish this book. Normally I like her series and her writing but this one just was difficult to slug through. Disappointing

I love Dorothea Benton Frank's annual beach books, but this one was disappointing. The plot was stilted and disjointed and not terribly credible. Maybe that's because the author claims she's never had a fight with her husband.

Who doesn't know, for example, that one of her twin sons has been dating (for years) the only daughter of her very good friend?

Same Beach, Next Year won't leave you yearning for long walks along the beach or crab cakes or a vacation in Carolina's Lowcountry in the middle of July.
