Thank you to Corinne LaBalme for an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I absolutely loved French Ghost and was thrilled to read another book from this author.
Jessica Stratton’s long-cherished dream of opening her own Folk Art gallery in an idyllic Cape Cod setting finally comes true. However, her start-up is anything but smooth sailing.
Her ten-year marriage hits the rocks and, when the hunk next door to her shop – a brooding ecologist on a mission to save the planet – proves too irresistible to ignore, she’s got to relearn the rules of the dating game while working overtime to lure clients to her boutique.
Unfortunately, someone’s already far too interested in a 19th century example of advertising art in her collection and will go to any means – legal or illegal – to acquire it.
Maybe the planet isn’t the only thing that has to be saved…
- I love books about fresh starts. In Summer People, we follow Jessica Stratton as she navigates her life after the demise of her marriage and the opening of her art gallery.
- I loved how the author brought alive the beautiful setting of Cape Cod. Her vivid details and descriptions are evidence of someone who knows the area well.
- I loved the friendship between Jessica and Nancy. Nancy brought a spark of humor and wit to the story.
- I loved watching Jessica tiptoe into a new relationship with her new neighbor.
- I loved that the story gripped my interest right away. Sometimes it takes several pages or chapters to get into a book and connect with characters. But Summer People drew me in immediately with a well-developed cast of characters, the affluent home in Boston, a charming summer house, a dash of comedy, and a thread of suspense wrapped around the new gallery.
