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.


I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
If you like chick lit, this book is for you. Circle in the Sand is full of drama, love, and secrets.
This is the story of four childhood friends who remain long distance friends as adults. They each have their own issues and, with the help of each other, they are able to work through those issues by the end of the story. There are also a couple of love stories and a lot of growing up.
Lia Fairchild’s writing has the reader in the thick of things. You get to know each of the four friends, their feelings, their thoughts, and their fears. This was my first Lia Fairchild novel and I will definitely read more.
