Waiting On [155]: Barefoot Beach by Toby Devens

Waiting on Wednesday [Wow] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Barefoot Beach by Toby Devens
Expected Publication: July 5, 2016
Publisher: NAL

For Nora Farrell, Tuckahoe, Maryland, isn’t just a summer refuge, it’s home—where she married the love of her life, decided to have a child, and has remained connected with her two closest friends. Even now, long after her husband’s passing, Nora reunites with Margo and Emine every June….

But this year, challenges invade the friends’ retreat. Even as Nora delights in teaching at her dance studio, she is shaken by the possible loss of her beach house…and by a tentative new romance. While Margo directs a musical at the Driftwood Playhouse, she finds her marriage on rocky ground. And Em, who relishes running her family’s café, struggles to handle her rebellious daughter.

With their personal dramas reaching a fever pitch, the women will discover that it isn’t only the beach that brightens their lives. Their bond with one another provides the ultimate magic.

Why I Can’t Wait
This one is definitely going to be added to my summer TBR list! Friends and the beach plus a little drama adds up to good summer read!


  1. I've read Happy Any Day now and My Best Midlife Crisis and I really like her heroines. Each one is unique and they really grow in the course of the book and her supporting characters are more than sounding boards or window dressing. I'm really looking forward to meeting Nora in July. I may not get to the beach, but this will be my "cool drink with ice on the deck" book.

  2. Great pick! Sounds wonderful and just what I like to read over summer. Thanks for the heads up!

    Really enjoyed Toby Devens' first book, My Favorite Midlife Crisis (yet). Was wild about her second, Happy Any Day Now. Toby has a really unique writing "voice," which is why I can't wait to read Barefoot Beach.

  5. Oh goody! I'm looking forward to this. It's going to be a great summer read!

  6. Love her writing. Looking forward to this one.

  7. Thanks, everyone. It's a treat to be featured here. Barefoot Beach will be out this summer and I hope you have as much pleasure reading it as I had writing it. Love to have you visit my website http://www.tobydevens.com/
