Book Review - Summer's List


Life hadn’t been easy for Summer Snow. In acts of selflessness-caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother’s bookstore-she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love… didn’t turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something-or someone.
Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer’s past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way?


Best-selling and award-winning author, Anita Higman, has over thirty books published (several coauthored) for adults and children. She’s been a Barnes & Noble “Author of the Month” for Houston and has a BA degree, combining speech communication, psychology, and art. Anita loves good movies, exotic teas, and brunch with her friends.

This is a light summer read perfect for those beach days or while lounging on a hot summer day. It's quite a quick read and not too complicated. Perfect for the beach bag.

This book wasn't your typical romance - it has dysfunctional families and some darker elements that make it a bit more interesting than a simple romance. It also has you guessing as to how the book is going to go next. I do like that in a book.

I enjoyed Summer and Martin, but my favorite character has to be Granny. I loved her wisdom and advice and how she encouraged Summer. Her love for Summer is so sweet and touching and believable.

I really liked the quirkiness of this book, the mystery involved, and just the overall feel of this story. I think you'll enjoy it, too! I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
