To fulfill her grandmother's dying wish, her granddaughter, a high-powered Manhattan attorney, sets out to find the hometown boy her grandmother once loved, and give him her grandmother's last letter. What should be a one-day trip to Beacon is quickly complicated when she almost drowns in the chilly bay and is saved by a local carpenter. The rescue turns the granddaughter into something of a local celebrity, which may or may not help her unravel the past her grandmother labored to keep hidden. As she learns about her grandmother and herself, it becomes clear that a 24-hour visit to Beacon may never be enough.

After seeing a beautiful cover on a French translation of this book, I wanted to read it in its original language. Did not note anything memorable or remarkable - and I have lived in Maine - that must be passed along (except the blueberries, of course!)

A quick, delightful, witty, predictable love story. Going back to her grandmother's home town to deliver her grandmother's last letter to an old boyfriend, Ellen finds a side of her grandmother she never knew.

A very good story about love, relationships, self-discovery, and personal choices. I really enjoyed it.

Fun summer read. Clean. Somewhat predictable, but entertaining none the less.

A wonderful love story with lots of blueberries in the background. Two people who are lost but find each other when her grandmother dies and asks her granddaughter to deliver a message to her first love. She meets the newphew when she almost drowns and it's not the beginning of the perfect match.

This was a fun summer read, though a bit far-fetched. I'm skeptical that something can happen in just 2-3 days that is life-changing. In this novel, people go to places different from their normal surroundings and they act like totally different people. I don't feel like I have to be an either or; the core me is always there even as I incorporate new experiences into my core. Having that missing in so many romances makes them less real for me.
