Ein Buch, so wunderschön. Voll von Wärme, Herzlichkeit und Liebe. Aber auch von Intrige.
Denn sagen wir so, in einer Liebesgeschichte gibt es doch immer jemanden, der dir das Glück vermiesen will. Richtig?
Diese Buch war mein erstes Sparks-Buch. Bisher dachte ich immer, dass seine Bücher nur so vor Schmalz tropfen. Doch ich wurde eines besseren belehrt.
Auch wenn die Charaktere zu abgerundet, zu perfekt scheinen. Jedenfalls wenn es um Beth und Logan geht.
Wer sich den Film angesehen hat, bevor er das Buch gelesen hat, wird vielleicht ein wenig vom Film enttäuscht sein. Denn wie es meist passiert, wurde der Film etwas abgewandelt.
Für mich gibt es hier 4 Sterne. Es ist nicht perfekt, hat mich zwar angezogen es immer wieder zur Hand zu nehmen. Kleines Manko die Perfektion einzelner Charaktere, was etwas realitätsuntreu ist.

Travis Parker is a great guy, with great friends and family. All of his friends are married with children, but not Travis. Gabby Holland moves in next door and is annoyed by Travis's parties and his dog. She confronts him, and they get off to a rocky start. Yet, when they meet again, Travis does everything he can to break down her defenses. She is involved with another man, and doesn't think she should get close to Travis. But, their attraction is undeniable.
Now, 11 years later, Travis is faced with a life or death choice. He knows what he promised Gabby, but he doesn't know if he can make the choice.
Sweet and touching love story with a lot of humor - and also some serious parts. Enjoyable.

I found this engaging and touching and I understand the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) enjoy this Nicholas Sparks gem, finding the portrayal of "Luke" true and authentic.

I don't know what it is about his writing, but I am always hooked and Safe Haven was no different.

Tropes: widower with kids

Content: Katie escaped an abusive marriage and some of the abuse is shown in flashbacks on the page (for that reason, I do not recommend to younger audiences), alcoholism, beating, remembering loss of spouse, death, stalking

Note: I did listen to an abridged version so some content may or may not be missing.

4 Stars
