WOW, great book
As usual, I could not put down this book, Safe Haven. Nicholas Sparks is such a great author. This book is 2nd only to his book Three Weeks with my Brother.

Nicholas hit on more than one topic when he wrote this one. I felt he hit the nail on the head so many times: Marital abuse, dirty cops, mentally ill people in places most of us would think would be safe. I was so glad Katie (Erin) found Alex and his children. I also was glad to see that this time Nicholas waited until Katie and Alex were marred before sex. It was a great mystery -- another GREAT READ BY NICHOLAS SPARKS.

Review of Safe haven by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Sparks is my all time favorite writer. This book is a mix between a romance and adventure novel. Most of his books are all about love and romances. Each book is different and that?s what I love about them. It shows a different love story each time. Nicholas Sparks? first published book was the notebook that was a very intense love story about two kids. That book was made into the movie The Notebook.
The beginning of this book kept me wondering why this girl had such a secretive past. I really wanted to know what Katie was hiding, if that was even her real name. She seemed really happy at where she was living now. Later in the book, where I found out why she was so secretive about her past, I realized she is a very strong person mentally. I don?t think I could ever do what she did. Katie was a courageous person. I realized how important love can be sometimes. Also, you can sometimes make mistakes while finding the person you want to live the rest of your lives with. The ending was really good and exactly how I wanted it to end. I hope everyone reads it to understand how courageous one person can be.
