Summer's List - Anita Higman

3 Stars

A dying wish alters the course of a young woman's life.

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?

This was one of  "those" books. It was kind of in-between for me. I really liked parts and didn't like other parts. Parts were good and fun and others were slow, and then yet other parts were... very strange! I did find the whole story to be very unlikely, but it is fiction - so doesn't have to be real-like.
All-in-all is was a pretty good "OK" summer read, definitely not bad and worth reading!

The character development was pretty good. I just didn't really care for Summer at all. Martin, I liked, but he was just so weird! I think he was suppose to be that way, but it made it hard to like him and get a real feel for him. His brothers I didn't like at all! But again - you are not suppose to like them. I think Granny was probably my favorite!

The whole story was just not what I expected. It was fun and quirky, that's for sure!
I would say if you are looking for a light, fun, quick and enjoyable enough read - this is it!

Thanks Litfuse for sending me this e-book for my honest review.
