A Summer to Remember by Victoria Cooke
ABOUT THE BOOK -
Sam lives by the mantra that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
After the tragic loss of her husband, Sam built a new life around friends, her cat Coco and a career she loves. Fending off frequent set-ups and well-meaning advice to ‘move on’, Sam is resolutely happy being single.
But when Sam gets seconded to her firm’s Boston office for the summer, it is more than her career that is in for a shake-up. A spur of the moment decision to visit the idyllic beaches of Cape Cod could end up changing her life forever.

MY THOUGHTS -
A real nice chick-lit-ish end of summer read!
To be honest this was a little slow for me in the beginning. But once she got to Boston it really picked up and I really started loving it. I have been to Boston several times and loved it. I have never been to Provincetown or Cape Cod in general but it is one of the places that I have always wanted to go to. The author did a great job of making me feel like I was visiting! Great descriptions, the beach, the bike rides, the city - Loved it all!
Great characters and character development. I liked Sam immediately. Didn't like Ethan at first but did grow to like him and he became more human and you learned his back story. Loved Harry and Barney, they couldn't have been more perfect.
Unfortunately one thing that I didn't care for were the flash backs. They were OK, but I just wasn't into them as much. But I still enjoyed the rest of the story very much. There were lots of warm fuzzies, but not too mushy - just right :-)
