Sign up for our newsletters! To get in the mood for vacation, I read this book on the drive to the Outer Banks. While we were not heading as far south as Rodanthe, North Carolina, it seemed fitting that this was the book to unwind with. To me, Nicholas Sparks is one great beach read. All his books are filled with a healthy dose of romance and emotion. They are a great way to exit everyday life and take a holiday. Before we talk about the book, let's talk about the title.
