Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks Book Summary

In a small North Carolina town, a mysterious and beautiful woman running from her past slowly falls for a kind-hearted store owner . . . until dark secrets begin to threaten her new life.
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 empathetic 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.

Ridiculous StoryI forced myself to finish reading this book because I'm one of those people that always has to complete a book - no matter how bad it is. I like romance novels, but this was just so over the top predictable and cheesy. The ending is also absolutely ridiculous and unsatisfying - don't waste your time reading it..Score: 2/5

Glad I read the book before movieThe movie was terrible, the book excellent. The lead heroine was mid-cast in the movie. One I will say is that Nicholas Sparks can write some good crazy! Tierney (crazy cop husband) was very far gone. That character element read like a Koontz book!.Score: 5/5

Great :)After reading "The Lucky One" I gave up hope in Nicholas Sparks books. This one was great though, and I know I will continue reading his other books. This one was a little boring in the beginning, but it really picked up and I couldn't put it down :).Score: 4/5

Fantastic book! Love it!!!I highly recommend reading this book. It was an awesome read without anything sexual. The love story is amazing and I truly enjoyed it. Just....wow!!!.Score: 5/5

Should not be classified as romanceNot one of his finest. The writing was a bit clunky with the alternating point of views at random times. It wasn't consistent. There wasn't a lot of romance, just a few dates here and there. Didn't get to see the main characters develop together. The only thing enjoyable were the children. *SPOILER* - The twist at the end was so cheesy and inauthentic. Felt like the author wasn't sure how to tie the story together and came up with it..Score: 2/5

Safe HavenI thought this was a great book. It kept you very interested on what was going to happen next by hanging you into the suspense of it all and then turning to mixed feelings of why people do what they do..Score: 5/5

Could not put it down!I really liked this book. I am not a fan of romance. Usually, I find them annoying. However, the book was cheap and had a good ratings so I got it. I enjoyed every page. Once I got past a third of the book I could not put it down!! Great ending too..Score: 5/5

Great beach readSomeone who rated this book a 1 said it was “predictable.” It was relatively predictable that the two main characters would become involved. However, this book was anything but predictable. Occurrences in the plot were quite surprising and remained surprising to the end. Enjoyed it very much..Score: 5/5

Terrific love story, terrific thriller!The Guardian is an even better thriller from the same author, but fans of Nicholas Sparks will love this book! I know what I’m talking about because I’m a fan, even though this is one of only five books I’ve read by the author! The love story is the kind of sweet, touching romance you would expect from Nicholas Sparks and, as a thriller, it’s very suspenseful, building to quite a frightening climax! Highly recommended! A pleasure to read!.Score: 5/5

Safe Haven MovieFirst I read the book, as I usually do. Then I saw the movie, it was good but somewhat disappointing. The reason I say that is that it did not follow the book as well as I thought it could have. The book was fantastic. Please keep writing. Mary Sperry.Score: 5/5

Romantic but...As usual Mr. Sparks can't disappoint, I felt however that the main characters needed to reach a deeper connection and the end needed to be more full of hope for the couple after the experiences they've gone through. I adore all his books, I thank him for also bringing to others attention the topic of serious domestic violence millions of women face everyday. Good read as usal.Score: 4/5
