Summer's List (River North, June 2015)

A dying wish alters the course of a young woman's life.

Life hadn't been easy for Summer Snow. In acts of selflessness---caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother's bookstore---she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love . . . didn't turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something---or someone.

Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer's past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way?

My Review:
Summer's Granny is sick and dying. Before she dies she  wants Summer  to experience things she missed out on by caring for her parents. Granny has a list of adventures for her.One of the request her Granny has is for her to do is find her childhood friend Martin and have him help her to complete the list. You will have to read the book to see how the list changes Summer's life.
The writing style of this book is not the best. I also found the story line of Martin's life a bit unrealistic. Still I think some people will enjoy this book.

I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for this review.
