A Safe Haven on Beamer Street


Elodie found herself in a terrible predicament.  She must flee from her husband and find "A Safe Haven on Beamer Street".  Her safety and the well being of her child was dependent of it.

There was no better place for Elodie than Beamer Street.  The people on the street were more than just neighborly.   They became family.  Well, one neighbor can be a little bit of a pain.  

I read the previous book "Finding Friends on Beamer Street".  I would recommend reading this first as you get to know the characters that appear in this book as well.

I really enjoyed the book.  I was afraid for Elodie. Her husband was pure evil. 

I received this book from Boldwood Books to review.
