With their twentieth reunion approaching, she invites four of her closest friends from college for a mini-reunion at her beach cabin on Whidbey Island. What she doesn’t expect is her best friends Selah and Quinn to play matchmaker. Will Maggie risk her heart and her quiet life for another chance at romance?
Gil Morrow, former grunge musician turned history professor, joins them as Selah’s date for the weekend. With the support of old friends, a few wishing rocks, the world’s largest burrowing clam, and a hot lumberjack thrown into the mix, Gil reminds Maggie she isn’t too old to fall in love.
Reality Bites becomes The Big Chill when a group of Gen-X friends spend a summer weekend together sharing laughter, tears, life’s ups and downs, old stories, second chances, and new beginnings in this humorous contemporary adult romance.

I will admit that I let my love and fascination for “Twilight” steer me on a course of all things young and in love. I’ve found myself over the last several years devouring many YA novels where real life is just beginning and love is new – and often times hot and sweaty. It’s fun and often loverrs sexy and I love it. But as “a woman of certain age” it is rare to find myself reflected back in the pages – or computer age – of the book where I want to lose myself for a few hours.
Thank God for “Geoducks Are for Lovers. Finally characters that look, and sound and feel like I know them, and better yet, I’m friends with them. Geoducks is a love story, but instead of the newness of first love it’s about second chances, and hope.
And facing life with a renewed sense of purpose and spirit. I found myself wondering if author Daisy Prescott had snuck a peek at my own journals. Maggie is a soul sister, building a good life for herself and cultivating strong and loving friendships and intriguing acquaintances.
But buried under the contentment of her lovely island life is an ember of hope of something more, maybe something she lost livers ago but can find again. You find yourself going along with Maggie on this reunion weekend and rooting for her to open eyes to the second chance presenting itself. It’s never too late to love and be loved.

This is a wonderful debut novel from Daisy Prescott and I hope not only to see more from Prescott but maybe even more from these characters. I wasn’t ready to leave Maggie’s cabin.
It felt like coming home each time I found myself imaging the view of the beach from Maggie’s deck. It was the perfect backdrop to renew friendships and feel the once forgotten sparks found in flirting with a lost love. Maggie and Gil found their way into my heart and I would love to see where they go from here. And I want to get that warm feeling again reading about characters who I can relate to and who seem as comforting and supportive and fun and infuriating as my own group of friends. Geoducks Are for Lovers made me hopeful again.
There are very few stories that I’ve read that I have difficulty putting down when I have to get other things done in my day.
Usually a bookmark is placed at a stopping point and I pick up where I left off at a more convenient time. Maggie has chosen to live the quiet island life on Whidbey Island in the Pacific Northwest, and she’s submerged in an idyllic existence.
It turns out that the true answer is so much deeper than I ever expected, and one that inspired some self-reflection upon completion along with longing for a few wishing rocks of my own, making this beautiful book cover even more affecting. I remained riveted with a cast of characters that include the island full-timers that embrace her, a hot lumberjack for a neighbor who is easy on the eyes, and a stellar array of sassy, intelligent, hilarious and trust-worthy friends who’ve stood by each other over the years.
The lingering memories that span the course of their shared life experiences, and importance of those emotional, physical and romantic connections, flutter quietly beneath the surface of the journey, just waiting to be re-discovered.
It’s the reason I couldn’t put this book down. This book is incredibly touching, and the ending made me smile like I haven’t in a really long time. I truly loved this story and can’t recommend it enough! I read the first book in this series, “We We’re Here. It leaves you with several questions that are frustrating. So when I saw there was a sequel I quickly bought it. And wished I hadn’t. Where the first book was written in first person from each individual character, this one is told in third person present tense, which is extremely disconcerting.
I was repeatedly pulled out of the story because of that present tense usage.
Geoducks Are for Lovers (Modern Love Story, #2) by Daisy Prescott
There’s also a large amount of head-hopping in scenes, which is poor writing. The story itself isn’t a story. There is no conflict, nothing driving the story forward. It’s more like a day in the life, which is extremely boring to read when there are no obstacles or conflicts of any kind.
The characters repeatedly compare their situation to the movie “The Big Chill. They even have a dead friend. The author has killed off Lizzy, my favorite character from the first book.

And we’re told nothing about Lizzy’s life and death other than it was afe. What did she do with her life? What was her profession? And what was with that mysterious postcard in the first book from Christopher? Did anything ever happen with them? I hate sequels that say they’re going to fill you in on their future and leave you with a billion questions instead.
And there’s lots of characters I would have killed off before Lizzy. None of them add much to this sequel, even though Maggie is supposed to be the heroine. So, basically you find out that because of their stupidity and immaturity, Maggie and Gil didn’t work things out after college.
They’ve spent the last twenty years apart, marrying the wrong people and getting divorced. They have literally wasted decades.
