While divorce is never the best option from a Christian viewpoint, sometimes it is just downright unavoidable. Finding herself divorced against her own wishes, Kimberly has had great difficulty dealing with her situation and it seemed as if her ex would do almost anything to make things more difficult for her. After losing one more traumatic court battle over summer custody of her sons, Kimberly’s wise father insisted upon her going to the family beach house in Cedar Key, Florida to find a new housekeeper. Although she didn’t want to go, Kimberly complied and soon found that her short beach vacation would change her life forever. Not only does she make new friends and renew an old romance, but Kimberly is forced to face and deal with truths about herself, her family, and secrets from the past.
Chasing Sunsets is the perfect book for long hot summer days. The reader can mentally escape to the beach as she enjoys a great story of self discovery and second chances. With realistically portrayed characters and situations, Chasing Sunsets is both entertaining and emotionally charged. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

“Don’t waste time, Kimberly. Time is something we all think we’ve got in abundance until suddenly the clock stops ticking. Don’t waste a single minute of your life…”
There is magic along the marshes in Cedar Key, Florida. Kimberly Tucker may just need reminding. Author Eva Marie Everson takes readers to the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida in Chasing Sunsets (ISBN: 978-0-8007-3436-7, June 2011, 384 pages, $14.99).

But Kimberly struggles with the secrets of her past that seem to be locked away in Cedar Key.
Wondering what went wrong with her marriage and realizing the dreams for their future would not come true, Kimberly resents her former husband for moving on with his life. When a judge orders her sons to spend five weeks of summer vacation with their father, Kimberly’s father suggests a respite in the family vacation home on Cedar Key Island. As Kim revisits her childhood memories and former loves, she soon discovers that treasures in life are often buried, and mistakes–both past and present–become redeemable in God’s hand.
Walk alongside Kimberly in Chasing Sunsets as she discovers that God’s answers may not come easily, but they do come.
