Sandcastles of Love
When Logan Becker's family embarks on a summer "house swapping" vacation in a beach town in Oregon, Logan is overjoyed. Similarly, Tricia Merrit, the daughter of the other family, is thrilled to be in the farm belt of Minnesota.
Logan falls in love with the beach boy surfer of her dreams, but soon she discovers he's Tricia's boyfriend. Logan's dreams are shattered. Meanwhile, there's another boy who is attracted to Logan—the totally uncool Grant Duncan who is busy trying to launch a campaign to clean the local beaches. Can Logan come to realize that true love often reveals itself in unexpected ways?
"Sandcastles of Love is a very short teen romance. Despite the short length, the story is solid and definitely well suited to romance readers. Logan does come off as a little selfish, but I remember those days and it comes with the age. For light summer reading, Sydell Voeller's teen romance is a great choice. I'm betting that many teen girls will relate to Logan and wish they had their very own beach romance." ~ Tracy Farnsworth, Round Table Reviews
"A wonderful story of a summer romance with interesting twists and turns..." ~ Michelle Poulson-vick at Sharpwriter Reviews
"Ms. Voeller's talent is superb, and I was impressed with her ability to write as if she were the actual teenager in the book. Sandcastles of Love is a light-hearted young adult romance that's attention grabbing, well-written, and charming." ~ J.B. Leese, A Story Weaver
“Young readers will enjoy Sandcastles of Love, particularly ones who love the beach. Ms. Voeller’s descriptions of the Oregon coast are wonderful, as are the scenes where Grant teaches Logan to build sand castles. Well-written, interesting, and delightfully romantic, they made me want to grab a bucket, take off my shoes and start digging...” Reviewed by Carrie Masek, Scribes World Reviews
