Circle in the Sand by Lia Fairchild
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.

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.
I am a big fan of Lia Fairchild and was really excited to read this book. Let me just say, she didn’t disappoint.
I loved everything about this story. Seriously, who doesn’t love a good book about a lifelong friendship? The friendships, the four points of views. The characters, their issues and how they deal with them. I loved that their twenty-year friendship has survived and seems to get stronger, through thick and thin.
Their problems they each dealt with keeps them distanced but yet brings them together.
Sage, Emily and Jax are so different from each other and deal with life in their own ways. Ned is just Ned. He loves the girls something fierce but his feelings for one of them runs deeper than most.
Ned, the only male in the group. Best friend and twin brother to Emily. He just made me smile. While dealing with his issues, he always put the ladies first.
This is one of those stories that just warms your heart. It is romantic and heartbreaking and a fantastic story about friendship.
