Amber’s life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself. Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell he’s also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets.
The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she’s drawn to him. And the more she’s troubled by his darkness. Because Cade’s not just living in the now—he’s living each moment like it’s his last.
As with all of Schroeder’s books, THE DAY BEFORE captured me with its poetic beauty. The words flowed across the pages and pulled me in line by line. I'm always surprised at how Schroeder continues to dazzle me with heartfelt story after story. You know what? If comes down to this: If it's a Schroeder novel, then you expect it come with beautiful prose.
I'll confess that I didn't quite remember what this book was about before I started reading it. And I'm glad that I didn't bite the bullet and read the synopsis because I ended up being completely engrossed into Amber's life. It was all so mysterious to me and I think that along with that and Schroeder’s lyrical prose, this novel ended up being more meaningful and heart rendering.
If you haven't read a Schroeder book, then I would highly recommend it. Her writing is hauntingly beautiful. She knows how to pull emotions from her readers and get you tied up into the character's lives. She's one of those writers that I can put on my list of book hits.
I'm just a girl with a crazy book obsession.
