    The Seaside Cafe by Rochelle Alers was what I term a chick lit book Ms Alers did an excellent job of describing Coates Island and I could actually feel like I was there while reading I was intrigued by the description of the book about three women who form a summer book club I confess that Kayana, Leah and Cherie seemed to bicker each time they got together to discuss the book rather than discuss the book Their friendship seemed to be forced

    I wanted to read the Seaside Cafe because the premise is one I love in books women reinventing their lives, food, coastal living and North Carolina Unfortunately the book left me underwhelmed and I attribute it to one reason the story felt fragmented I was not able to connect with it and considered it not finishing it, but I decided to keep going TheI read, theI kept thinking that the characters interactions felt forced The story had all the elements of a phenomenal first book
