Review of Another Summer

Another Summer (1)

This week I’m reviewing Another Summer by Rebecca Stevenson.

Here’s a little about it:

When literary agent Tracy Ratcliffe travels to the sleepy village of Wentworth Cove,
Maine, for a much-needed vacation, the most excitement she’s expecting is a sunset
walk along the beach. Instead, she hears about a portrait of a woman who looks
suspiciously like her that had hung in the local art gallery for years, even though she’s never set foot in Wentworth Cove before.

Tracy also meets handsome Nathan Norsworthy, a moody aspiring novelist who
takes her breath away. Nathan helps her deal with the suspicion that the man she
knew and loved as her father probably wasn’t. That is, until she begins to suspect
that Nathan is using her to break into the world of publishing…

I give this book FIVE stars!

What could go wrong when a beautiful literary agent and a sexy aspiring writer attract? They may get delightfully complicated and deliciously romantic! I was hooked! This is a sweet love story with a little mystery that unravels as Tracy Ratcliffe discovers a secret from the past.  The delightful village of Wentworth Cove has more than one surprise in store for her. Is her father really the man who raised her? Does the writer with the amazing eyes really like her or is he just looking to get his book published? It’s a plot that keeps you turning pages. I enjoyed the well-developed, likable characters and the beautiful setting along the New England coastline. It really makes me want to visit coastal Maine. My only complaint is that it ended too soon! Stevenson better give us a sequel! This is a clean romantic read I definitely recommend.

Book Review: The Long Way Home

Here’s the book I just finished, The Long Way Home by Judah Knight10617338_274685562735896_1582745503_n

Wow, I have to say, this book is action-packed like crazy. It has romance, adventure, a hunt for sunken treasure and even a terrorist plot that has to be stopped. Meg Freeman opts to take the “long way home” when she finds herself stranded in the Bahamas. All her things, including her ticket home, are stolen and she doesn’t know what to do until she runs into her old crush, Jon Davenport. Jon gives her a ride back to the states on his yacht, but a relaxing trip filled with scuba diving in the gorgeous tropical waters is not all they’re in for. There is plenty of adventure and excitement that comes their way. Both of them have lost a spouse and the story takes us through their journey of renewing their old friendship and finding love again. It not only takes them longer than expected to reach home, but it also is the long journey to letting go of the past and embracing the future. It’s a clean action/adventure/romance. Enjoy!

Grab it on AMAZON!
He had a boat; she needed a ride. The long way home became a ride that would change their lives forever.
When Meg was stranded in the Bahamas, her life was dramatically changed through an encounter with an old friend that turned into adventure, danger, discovery, and love.
Meg Freeman and Jon Davenport began a surprising adventure connected to a 17th century, shipwrecked Spanish galleon. Both Freeman and Davenport had experienced the sorrow of losing a spouse, but they found true friendship as they joined together to search for treasure, which ended up being more than gold. Join this couple’s adventure of romance and suspense where a simple lift turned into a ride they would never forget.
