Grand Central Publishing | September 14, 2010 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Safe Haven is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Besides The Notebook, this is definitely my favourite Nicholas Sparks novel. I felt so connected to the characters and was able to feel what they were feeling. I felt the nervousness, the excitement and the anxiousness that was being described. I couldn't wait to read how it ended. I read this almost all in a day. I couldn't put it down. I'm definitely looking forward to his next novel, his stories always exceed my expectations of an amazing love story, and now almost a thriller!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent As Always I had mixed feelings about reading this book but once I started there was no stopping me it turned out to be very good. I could not put it down this is another great book that Nicholas Sparks has written. The ending has such a great twist it was not what I expected it to be. Treat yourself to a great story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok I love anything Nicholas Sparks and I think he did an Alright job with this one. I kind of expected more, but I can't choose how I want the book to end. Just when you built a relationship with the characters, the story ends. Overall it was a good book. I liked the perspective of the crazy drunk husband. Best part of the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe Haven I love NS books but they can be a bit predictable. Not this one. I think this started out to be his usual but there is clearly some difficult issues he address in this book with a clarity that is uncomfortable but necessary. The ending is fabulous. If you are one of the readers who skips to the end. DON'T you will spoil it for certain. This is a great read! I cannot wait to see the movie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from captivating This was my first Nicholas Sparks novel and i am currently on my fifth! He does not only write about love but about the characters emotions in-dept. My heart was racing fast through out this whole book. Oh wow and the ending was truly a huge twist, i would never have guessed it. I still remain shocked. I am very thrilled that this book has been turned into a movie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sparks is never a disappointment In the same fashion as The Guardian, Sparks submersed his readers in all the emotional ups and downs of his characters. A wonderful summer read that could be read over and over again. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of his best I have read most of Nicholas Sparks' novels and this one is definetaly one of my favorites. Not quite as typical as some of his others, ending was a bit predictable - but keeps you interested from start to finish. If you read The Guardian of A Bend in the Road and enjoyed them, then you will absolutely enjoy this one!

About the Author

Nicholas Sparks, December 31, 1965 - Nicholas Sparks was born in Omaha, Nebraska, on New Year's Eve, about eighty minutes prior to 1966. As a child, he lived in Minnesota, Los Angeles, and Grand Island, Nebraska, finally settling in Fair Oaks, California at the age of eight. His father was a professor and his mother was a homemaker. He lived in Fair Oaks through high school, graduated valedictorian in 1984, and received a full track scholarship to the University of Notre Dame. After breaking the Notre Dame school record as part of a relay team in 1985 while a freshman (a record which still stands), he was injured and spent the summer recovering. During that summer, he wrote his first novel, "The Passing," but he never had it published. He majored in Business Finance and graduated with high honors in 1988. In 1989 he wrote his second novel, "The Royal Murders," which was also never published, after being rejected by publishers. Sparks decided to concentrate on another career. He'd been rejected by publishers and law schools alike, and went through a number of short-term jobs. Among these were appraising real estate, buying and restoring houses, waiting tables, selling dental products by phone and finally deciding to start his own business manufacturing orthopedic products. Sparks' self-employment didn't last long before he found himself in piles of debt. During this time, he wrote yet another book, "Wokini" with Billy Mills, a long-time friend and Olympic Gold Medalist. It was
