The Summer That Made Us
The Summer That Made Us - Robyn Carr

Look this is marketed as chick lit and a romance and it is not for all of the characters. I mean we have someone who is convicted for murder. We have an attempted rape scene. There is a secret pregnancy (that everyone knows about) and then the woman who got pregnant didn't know the real name of the father. Well hello there random man in the story. I can guess who you are. Someone has cancer that has a grim prognosis. 

 

This book was a mess.

 

Not all of the characters were given equal weight and it was just all over the place.

 

I think I was also disappointed with the secret that was eventually shared with everyone too. It was so lackluster. And the reason for the aunts falling out was beyond stupid. I just had nothing when I got to the ending.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
The Summer That Made Us - Robyn Carr

What a weird ass book. There is an attempted rape. Some gets shot and killed (and someone goes to jail for it) there is cancer, slapping, etc. I don't even know what this was. I finished and went what in the world.

The Summer That Made Us - Robyn Carr

I absolutely loved this book. A story of two sisters that married two brothers and each had three kids all of which were girls. The families would spend every summer at the lake house their grandmother and grandfather owned until the weekend that one of the youngest girls died in a boating accident.

That weekend created a decade feud between the sisters that really tore at their kids and caused some of them act out and question themselves for many years.

I loved all the characters especially the main ones - Charley, Meg, and Krista, the daughters. The sisters had such very different lives even though they married two brothers. I was really glad that the character, Hope, had only a small part in this book. I think if I had to listen to her craziness for much longer, I would have had to throw the book, literally. She was cray, cray.

An excellent read about family and forgiveness that really touched a nerve with me.

Thanks to Harlequin and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Home Made Summer - Yvette van Boven This is one of those lovely, but smug and impractical cookbooks full of recipes that no one with a real life could ever make. Oh well, at least the pictures are beautiful.
