"Secrets in Summer" by Nancy Thayer 

 

My Thoughts...

 

"Secrets in Summer" really gives you quite a read where the reader will be pulled into many different directions.  We find Darcy Cotterill a librarian is in her Nantucket home where she has inherited it from her grandmother. Oh, let me just say she is dating Nash being newly divorced. But what all was up with that?   Now it is the beginning of Memorial Day and people are showing up. But to Darcy's surprise her neighbor behind her is none other that her ex [Boyz] and his new wife [Autumn] and stepdaughter[Willow]. Some other neighbors.were one with three boys and a elderly woman who was staying with her grandson [Clive] who happens to be thirty. We now get the start of the story as the it will go into their life's.  Now, this is where this story will get most interesting as the story isn't only about the neighbors but of 'adultery, drugs, senior citizen issues, secrets and then it seems like this ex doesn't know what the word no really means.' Really what in the world was that about?  Didn't Boyz leave his wife [Darcy] for this new one?  I am only left to say that Darcy really had her hands full because it seems like she was just too involved with everyone life which did get a little over the top to me. You will definitely have to pick up this good read to see how it will all come out for Darcy.   I will say this is a good summer entertaining read that will keep your attention to see what will happen next in this story.  In the end will Darcy be able to get out of her past and finally find a permanency in her life that she will enjoy?  It will be a interesting to read and see how this story does unfold.

 

I received this from NetGalley to read and review.

My Thoughts....

 

These authors give the readers quite another good series...'A County Fair Romance Book 3' in 'Spring Fling that will keep you turning the pages till the end.  I liked how this story picks up from Book 2 in 'Winter Kisses' that involves Fallon, Justin and the other interesting men in her life.  As you read through the story one will finds that there will be many issues and insecurities that will befall on Fallon as she finds out about her multiple pregnancy.  What I really enjoyed about this series was all of the help that was their for Fallon whether she wanted it or not.  Some of the story will have you laughing at some of the bantering that does take place, to even some moments that will leave the reader in tears with some of the family craziness to that deep love for one another in this well written dramatic romantic story. Will there be a HEA and what's  next for Hopkins/Blackthorne family?

Star’s End: An Inner Space Opera
Star's End - Cassandra Rose Clarke

Man, I really like Clarke's stuff. Not real flashy, but emotionally detailed.

My View.....

What a read! This story will definitely have you emotionally all over the place with every page having something that will simply blow you mind. I found all of the characters [Georgia, Carson, Savannah, Delta] to name a few giving the reader a little bit of it all from 'drama, concern, approval, confused, support to even some growth' in this Parrish family. What a family that may 'go hard' but in the end will be their for each other. The reader will be kept in the state of what dark secrets will be dropping next. But will this family survive with this latest acknowledgement from that Ms. Monica? To find out you will have to get this author's next novel to see what all will be happening next ....as this drama continues in this Parrish family!
