    Chasing Sunsets: A Cedar Key Novel is a novel about a mother's journey of self discovery, spiritual growth and emotional recovery after a bitter divorce that wasn't at all in her life plan. Yup, all that in one novel. Added to that, the main setting of the novel is a relaxed community in the Florida Cedar Keys - making it an excellent beach read for the summer.

    Main character, Kimberly Tucker, is still trying to adjust to all of the changes in her life after the divorce. Her two teenaged sons are off for the summer with their father and she doesn't know what to do with her time. Struggling to determine what happened to her marriage, and to her life - her natural urge is to try and fix her life herself. Thanks to a coerced trip to her family's summer home in Cedar Keys she not only discovers how to let God take the controls, but also discovers that she just might have a second chance at her first love.

    This book tackles some tough topics. Along with divorce and it's emotional aftermath, the book also tackles a family's secret of alcoholism. Yet even though the topics are tough, the therapeutic atmosphere of the keys keeps the tone of the book light enough to be a relaxing beach read.

    The only negative I have about the novel is that the last chapter almost seems like it should be a separate teaser/intro for book two in the series? The way the book is organized now it leaves you feeling like some pages are missing ... I backtracked twice trying to figure out if I missed something.

    I have a new beach read to recommend, girls! I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. It kept me turning pages and not wanting to put it down to go to sleep!

    Kimberly Tucker and her ex-husband, Charlie, are in the middle of a divorce because of Charlie's less-than-appropriate behaviors. This is not what Kimberly envisioned her life to be when she said her vows years earlier. Now stuck in the middle of this are their 2 boys who don't enjoy spending time with their dad because they say that he has girl after girl over and they get stuck at their grandparents house while their dad is partying. After the judge ruled that they must spend 5 consecutive weeks out of their summer at their dad's house, Kimberly isn't for sure what she should do with herself.

    She decides that she'll head to Cedar Key, the place of some of her fondest childhood memories. It's here that she runs into her first love. And as the back of the book says, and I think it sums it up best, "Sometimes you get a second chance at your first love."

    Available June 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

    I really don't like the way this book ended. It's too soon. I'm not done reading about these people and Cedar Key. In fact, I'm thinking about getting in my car and finding Cedar Key. Surely it's no too far from my island.

    I like the way this book protruded back and forth between then and now.

    And I liked the way Boo learned to deal with her pain - pain that stayed with her from her teen days right on into adulthood.

    I want to know more about her life and that of her friend, Patsy, and her family. Just saying. Waiting for the next book Eva Marie Everson.

    Kimberly reminds me of so many woman out there. One who has gotten a divorce, not know what has gone wrong. Kim travels to Cedar Key, planning on staying only a week.... well we will see....

    This book is another refreshing story! Since I read so much, I tend to sometimes see other story plots that are similar, but this one was new to me.... Imagine yourself setting by a pool, relaxing , reading this wonderful story... You will love it.

    One thing I really liked is that the two divorced adults are not spiteful, yes Kim has problems at the beginning of the story with her ex, but she soon begins to find closer and becomes very civil with him. During the story, Kim finds out who she is.

    This is a wonderful story that will be sure to please any reader.

    Kimberly Tucker doesn't want her ex-husband, Charlie, to have more time with their two boys, Chase and Cody. The boys are her life, and it's come to her attention they spend more time with their grandparents when visiting their father, who is once again enjoying the dating scene. What she can't understand is why they divorced in the first place. Their life represented the picture-perfect American family.

    When the judge awards Charlie the right to keep his boys over the summer, Kimberly is faced with coming to terms with the situation. At her father's request, she heads for the beach house in Cedar Key, where she will work at finding a replacement housekeeper. Kimberly doesn't want to be there, and she plans to return home, close to her boys, within a week or two.

    What Kimberly doesn't expect is to befriend the older woman next door, run into her first love, and have a second chance at the life and love she's desired all along.

    Eva Marie Everson shows us that love still prevails in her Cedar Key novel Chasing Sunsets.

    Perfect for that summer beach read, Chasing Sunsets is filled with Eva's wonderful descriptions and characters we can relate to and fall in love with. If you can't make it to the beach, no worries, she'll take you there!

    Available June 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

    If you desire a summer's worth of great reading material, be sure to pick up copies of Eva's novels Things Left Unspoken and This Fine Life, as well. I promise you won't be disappointed!
