Nights in Rodanthe is written to be one of the “second chance at love” stories that middle-aged women across the world may dream about, especially with Richard Gere as the romantic hero. While the movie vaguely misses the mark, the book doesn’t even come close.

Sparks uses a formulaic approach to the love story; love coming into the lives of 2 people unexpectedly, distance forces the two lovers apart, and finally, the enduring quality of love. The simple story can appeal to those who are looking for a quick read; or who want to truly engage their imagination to give depth to the characters.
