The Seaview Terrace takes the lives of the tenants in the condo and tells their stories. Each story is woven together as the tenant's lives intersect. There is the usual mix of races, ages and other differences.
I think this book was well written, but I just couldn't get into it. The author did a great job of portraying each character and weaving their lives at the terrace. But the characters didn't grab me or interest me. The reviews were good so I kept waiting for it to start getting better. But it never did. It just isn't my style. And then it ended without anything or anyone coming to a conclusion. I really don't want to rate it with stars because those are supposed to be how I like it and I didn't. But I don't feel this is fair to the author because it was a personal preference and not bad writing.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
