characters The Summers

For Kate Sommers there’s nothing that compares to summer at her family’s beach house on Cape Cod the ocean breezes the clam bakes the boys She and her three sisters seemed to have all their “firsts” over those long months first job first party first crush Kate’s first crush is her only crush Ryan Landry the boy next door and he. When author Iva Marie Palmer sent me a message on Twitter offering me not only the opportunity to host a giveaway for a Kindle Paperwhite and other bits and bobs but also the opportunity to read and review her novel The Summers I was uite pleased It sounded like a wonderful novel set in Cape Cod which makes a change as it s usually the Hamptons and I was very excited to download the novel to my Kindle I love Young Adult books they very rarely fail to make me happy they re not as angsty as New Adult some are I m sure but I like the light hearted ones okay and if I ever feel like I need a lighter read with a bit of sweet romance Young Adult is usually the genre I lean towards as it ticks all of those boxes and I was very very interested to meet Ryan LandryBeing a British person it s uite unfathomable to me that American s travel to somewhere each summer for two or three months in England we maybe go on a fortnight s holiday or as I live in Tenerife I don t go on holiday at all and because I m in full time employment I get four weeks holiday a year that I can t take all in one go so I live for these novels that are set in these glorious communities Nantucket Cape Cod The Hamptons where you can just celebrate Summer the way you re supposed to hang out with friends maybe get a little job for extra money meet a cute guy They re living the dream and I m extraordinarily jealous The Summers is one of those glorious types of novels I love although it s tinged with a hint of sadness as the Sommers are returning to their beach house after three years away after the death of their motherEven though the Sommers family have been away from the Cape for so long it s still like arriving somewhere comfortable where you know everyone There s the Landry s next door and Kate s had a crush on their oldest son Ryan since she can remember desperate for him to notice her even though he s three years older It s that wonderfully comfy cozy girl next door and boy next door typical romance and it just makes me sigh and wish to be American and to live in Cape Cod I thought it was so great that Kate and Ryan got on like a house on fire straight away No awkwardness no skirting around each other it was great But my favourite aspect of the novel was Kate s absolute ambition to be a writer I really admire an 18 year old who knows she wants to be a writer and her story ideas were awesome I loved the idea of the lady who maps things I would actually read thatI wasn t so hot on Kate keeping her romance with Ryan a secret I could understand her reticence since her sister had him as a summer fling three years previous but at the end of the day Eliza was getting married so it was kinda irrelevent to the story so she should have just manned up and told her For a dish like Ryan why wouldn t you I enjoyed getting to know Kate s sisters and if Iva Marie felt up to it I m sure we could have books about all four of the Sommers sisters I particularly liked strong minded Tea She knew what she wanted and a story about her would be all kinds of awesome The ending was perhaps my least favourite part of the novel because it was the ultimate in frustrating endings and I ve had my share of those this year It just ended With no real word on what would happen next It wasn t definitive enough and I like my endings definitive with a full stop Even an Epilogue would have worked for me but not what we got which was kinda disappointing Overall though it s a great little beach read perfect for lazy summer daysThis review was originally posted on Girls Love To Read

Summersway too shortI enjoyed the storyline between the sisters and ultimately the love interest but it ended very anticlimactic I did get very emotional as the author indulged in the loss of the family memberhoped for a much exciting ending

    This was okay I’m not sure if it was the story or the narrator that made it meh The narrator has a nice voice but her reading of the story felt flat The story takes place over a summer and it focuses on a teen with complicated emotions and family dynamics There were four daughters but the youngest barely made an appearance I forgo

    4 Crazy Ass StarsSo I have been listening to this while I ran errands and some housework over the last few days I enjoyed it It is based in one of my favorite vacation places Cape Cod My family and I lived on the Cape for almost 8 years and now we vacation there every year While we mainly stay in the Sandwich area and this is down Cape there are still tons of things I can identify with The Fourth of July fireworks for example We always go
