Book Review: Safe Haven - Nicholas Sparks

Safe Haven
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past.  Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships; one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo.  Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.

But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her...a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport.  With Jo's empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards...and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.

3/5 stars (liked it)
This is the fourth book I have read by Nicholas Sparks and it is a lot different than the other books.  Most of his books are just tear jerker love stories.  This one had a lot of suspense, especially at the end when Katie's past comes back.  There is also the typical love story.  Alex is such a great man and father, who wouldn't love him.  Over I liked the book and I really liked the cover with the bike.
