|Oak Bluffs #2
|Once Upon a Broken Heart (PDF/ePUB) By Stephanie Garber
African American affluents have a tight-knit community in Sag Harbor’s SANS (Sag Harbour Hills, Azurest, and Nineveh) neighbourhood, where they can get away from the city and enjoy the warm weather and beaches in privacy. Residents of this obscure section of the Hamptons on Long Island want anonymity.
Olivia Jones is a woman who has made a name for herself in the male-dominated field of finance by forging her own way. But there is a huge chasm beneath the surface of her accomplishment. Olivia is motivated to discover more about her biological father, a police officer who was slain when she was a little girl, and to unravel the mystery of what happened to her mother when she and her two godsisters were abandoned by Omar, who had been their surrogate father.
When Olivia began to feel disconnected from her life in New York City, she made the decision to purchase a home in Sag Harbour, remodel it, and start making new friends in the SANS area. Addy, a wealthy part-time sommelier, becomes fast friends with Kara, an aspiring art curator, and Whitney, the wife of a former basketball player and the current president of the Sag Harbour Homeowners Association. She develops feelings for Mr. Whittingham, an elderly gentleman who seems really nice but turns out to have his own problems.
As the summer progresses, she learns more about herself via the various relationships she has. Olivia’s journey to discover her true self in the hidden history of her ancestry will not be easy, but it will ultimately renew her faith in herself, her relationships, her blackness, and the road she has chosen for herself and her family.

Summer on Sag Harbor Book Summary
The setting of mysterious and picturesque Sag Harbour made for an engrossing book that was great for a day at the beach.
Having a character like Olivia, who came across as closed-minded and angry in the first novel, become a more nuanced and likeable figure in this one really impressed me. Seeing her grow as a person was an unexpected bonus that made the story feel more real.
It was encouraging to see minorities represented at such high levels of success and wealth. It was refreshing and admirable that the show dismantled prejudices and presented a more nuanced portrayal of folks from different backgrounds.
The book’s writing style was also excellent. It wasn’t difficult to read, but it was really well-written, making it a pleasure to learn about these fascinating people. Drama and heartfelt moments were sprinkled throughout the story at exactly the correct levels to keep me interested.
This novel hit a nice mix between lighthearted fun and deep exploration of its characters. It’s a great example of Sunny Hostin’s talent as a storyteller and her dedication to accurately and sympathetically depicting people from all walks of life. If you’re looking for a stimulating read this summer, go no further than this book.
