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?
With lovable characters and surprising twists, Summer's List is a simple delight.
Have you ever read any books from the "Love Finds you in" series? If your answer is yes, I applaud you for finding some awesome fiction. If it was no? Well, lets just say your like me. And you've been missing out. Well, in April when my grandpa came and we went to the library, I changed that. I found a gem titled "Love Finds You in Humble, Texas". The cover caught my eye and then the word Humble in the title intrigued me. So I borrowed it. And loved it...and decided I needed to find this awesome writer named Anita Higman. Last month I received an email with this gorgeous book. Um, YES!
I really love how Anita has this awesome way of writing. Where she perfectly puts together humor with reality in a blend that makes you forget your problems. My heart broke for Summer in the same way it rejoiced when a bond was repaired. I laughed at the same times that I cried when something just wouldn't go right. Most importantly though, from the first page, I knew I didn't want it to end.
I was so close to fully in love with the book, I didn't understand why I wasn't over the edge yet. When I started the first chapter, I figured out why. If you've read my reviews on Melody Carlson books before and a few others you know why. The first 6 chapters were all about Summer Snow. (Love that name f.y.i, it's so musical!) Her struggles, her thoughts, her happy moments, her sacrifices. All good stuff. Except until that point, it was ALL summer. I literally jumped up and down with excitement when I realized I was reading Martin's point of view.
IN. LOVE. All I have left to say is this:
*My overall thoughts*
Summers List by Anita Higman is a really fun story with a surprising serious side to it that makes it the perfect chill time novel. Just the write amount of depth to keep my finishing it in a day mixed with enough humor to make it light, I fell in love one page in! Keep it up Anita, I need more of your work on my shelves!
I give Summer's List by Anita Higman..
4 1/2 stars!!
