Love hurts. There is nothing as painful as heartbreak. But in order to learn to love again you must learn to trust again.
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past.

Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community. But even as Katie starts to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts her….

Loved book, hated movie!

Watched movie trailer thinking it looked good so decided to read book first. It was lucky I did otherwise I might have missed out on a great book. Movie makers really know how to kill a book. In book, enjoyed the flow and good natured characters apart from the husband of course. What a phsyco kookoo! Loved the unexpected twist at the end. I would have liked to have seen more action from Alex; given his history but oh well. Still good. The movie killed everything about it and turned it into some rushed jumbled mangled mess. I didn’t even like how they changed character names. How pointless. This is definitely one book which has movie potential but sadly flopped. So, recommend book and whatever you do, stay away from movie!

Nicholas Sparks did it again!

What did you love best about Safe Haven?

I completely loved the way we can find romance, courage, family trust and new beginnings in this book.

Any additional comments?

It's amazing how we get hooked to the story. We laugh, we cheer... We want a happy ending and it comes, but not exactly the way we're expecting. The story is great from the beginning to the end, but the end definitely comes with a great surprise. I've also watched the movie. The story was adapted and many things changed. It turned out really nice as well. My tip is: read the book and then watch the movie for comparisons. Both versions come differently, but they're both worth of your time.

Wonderful Book, Well Narrated

I don't write reviews, but I felt compelled to write about this particular book. It is written beautifully. I could not put it down and spent most of my weekend listening to it. I have listened to several audible books and this is by far the best yet. The narration is very well done, in fact, probably the best I've listened to as of yet, subtle and believable. The book holds you right to the very end and I am so pleased that I found this author and novel.
