Circle in the Sand by Lia Fairchild

Title: Circle in the Sand

Author: Lia Fairchild
Release Date:  January 7, 2014 
Four life-long friends bound by two decades of laughter, love, promises, and secrets. Once inseparable, the four grow into independent adults pursuing very different paths.

Sage, raised by career-driven parents, follows a carefully laid out future of success that leaves her wondering what she’s missed out on.

Emily, the college drop-out, now has three children that have become her whole life. She's slowly lost herself, subconsciously seeking dangerous ways to cope. Can she find herself in time?

Jax always lived on the edge, skating through life with no apparent ambition, yet remained the energy and emotional cement of the group. She longs for her friends to accept her without trying to fix her.

Ned, Emily’s twin brother, yearns to stand up and be counted. But his old loyalties and new feelings for one of the girls has him pulled in different directions.

Will the ties that held them together as kids be strong enough for them as adults? These four friends will discover the true meaning of friendship and unveil truths about themselves they never knew existed.

 All you need is love

“Live each day being the reason someone smiled, the inspiration for someone to fight, the strength for someone to heal.” By the time I read that line spoken by one of the characters in Circle in the Sand, I was completely captured by the story of four friends so different and yet so perfectly linked. Three women and one man, each takes their separate journey, yet they are never more than an emotional heart-beat apart.

I enjoyed the eccentricities that bound these friends together. Small things like passing page-worn classic books back and forth over the years, each friend making notes in the margins in different colored ink. Short notes reflecting their emotional responses to the book at that particular time in their lives. A very engaging quirk.

It took me a few chapters to get comfortable with the changes in the characters’ POV but once I got with the rhythm I enjoyed it immensely.

Author Lia Fairchild takes the reader on a journey from longing to terror and back. This is an honest story about love and friendship and how it continues to change and grow throughout our lives.

I received a copy of this novel as an Advance Reader Copy in return for an honest review.

I’ve been creating stories my whole life, but only for me, in my own head. Then one day I sat down and started to write a book. I completed my first novel, In Search of Lucy, in February of 2011. Seven months later, AmazonEncore contacted me about representing my book. It’s currently in the top 10 for Kindle Drama.

My second full-length novel, Vigil Annie, was released on Amazon in December of 2012! One reviewer called this thriller “suspenseful, well-crafted, and fast paced.”

I recently completed my first romantic comedy, The Tech Guy, now available on Amazon.

My other works include a mystery series (A Hint of Murder) and a short, sweet romance (Special Delivery).

I was born and raised in Southern California and hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a multiple subject teaching credential. I’m a wife and mother of two teenagers.
