Book Review | Cocoa Beach by Beatriz Williams


Virginia meet her estranged husband while driving an ambulance in WWII. She didn’t want the entrapment of a marriage. Now she is raising their daughter when she finds out that he is dead.

She heads out to settle her late husbands estate. In doing so she and her daughter become a target. Other people want the money and estate that was left to her which she signs into her daughters name unknowingly putting her in danger as well.


This was just an alright read for me. I think it wasn’t for me. I had to go online to try to understand the ending and apparently so did many other readers. I think this is a sign of a failed book.
As it turns out, others suggest you need to have read her previous novel, A Certain Age in order to possibly grasp this.
I’m not sure if I will read the first one or not. It has been on my TBR but never really got around to it and this book does not cause me want to pick it up either. I really wanted to love this book but I didn’t.

I ended up switching from the physical book to listening to this on audio. I found the time alternating perspectives confusing in the audio version. So if you are planning to consume this via audio keep that in mind. It might work for you but for me, not so much.

This is not a book I am going to be recommending to anyone unless you have read A Certain Age or just like to be confused by endings.
