“Circle in the Sand” by Tracy Krimmer
Follow the rules. Be reliable. Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve.
Living by these words didn’t put librarian Isla Hunter any closer to the life she imagined at thirty. With her birthday in only a few days, she can’t wait to sail away on a week in the sun with her friends Asher and Charlotte. It may be just what she needs.
When an attractive woman takes a liking to Asher, Isla’s heart feels threatened in an unfamiliar way. She’s used to Asher flipping through women like a playbook without a second thought, but this time it’s different. As she tries to sort out her emotions, she struggles with Asher’s connection with this woman. Is it time for Isla to finally break the rules or will that only lead her into hot water?
Circle in the Sand is the third book in the Oceanic Dreams series. This is a multi-author series and each book can be read on its own.

My Review: I was fortunate enough to have received an advanced copy of “Circle in the Sand,” and being a big fan of Tracy Krimmer I was confident that I’d enjoy this read. This read did not disappoint!
From the beginning, I enjoyed Isla and Asher’s story. I was sad for Isla that her best friend would miss her birthday celebration, but it was easy to see that Asher would be there for her–even if that’s not what it appeared like at times. While Isla and Asher might not have been close, their chemistry was undeniable. I also appreciated that Asher was positive when Isla was down on herself, mainly because of Isla’s past. As for the ending, I won’t spoil it for you, but I was happy for Isla.
I have read several of Tracy Krimmer’s books, and while I’ve enjoyed them, this one by far is my absolute favorite. The characters are relatable and fun, and the storyline is an interesting one that had me swiping the pages on my iPad. For me, the only downside of this book was that it wasn’t long enough.
If you’re looking for a quick, sweet, and delightful read, then I highly recommend “Circle in the Sand.” It would also make for a great beach read. 🙂
I give “Circle in the Sand” 5 stars!
