Porch Lights
When fireman Jimmy McMullen is killed in the line of duty, his wife, Jackie, and ten-year-old son, Charlie, are devastated. Trusting in the healing power of family, Jackie decides to return to her childhood home on Sullivans Island--a place of lush green grasslands, the heady pungency of Lowcountry Pluff mud, and palmetto fronds swaying in gentle ocean winds. Thrilled to have her family back, matriarch Annie Britt promises to make their visit perfect. Over the years, Jackie and Annie, like all mothers and daughters, have had differences of opinion. But her estranged and wise husband, Buster, and her best friend, Deb, are sure to keep Annie in line. She's also got the flirtatious widowed physician next door to keep her distracted. Captivated by the island's natural charms, mother, daughter, and grandson will share a memorable, illuminating summer.

Took too long meandering around and losing the storyline for me.

It was an ok book. I have read a lot of her books and women are always the main characters. some of her women seem to be a little bit needy, like needing to share intimate details about their private lives. ick! where's the mystery in that? oh well, I have ordered her latest book so I must get something out of them!

An easy read with characters you can like and root for. Good lessons but a very simple book. Something for a lazy afternoon.

Beach read with a happy ending. This is probably one of the better Frank novels--one of these days I have to get to Sullivan's Island.
