My review of A Sweethaven Summer:
At first, I was not sure I was going to like this book. It was the second book in a row about a young woman whose mother has passed away and today happens to be the anniversary of my mom’s passing away, so it just felt like a bit too much of that. But, I quickly got into the story and really started to care about the characters and their stories. Everything about this book was terrific. I am so glad that I did not let my early reservations about this book prevent me from getting into the story. Once again a debut author has succeeded in wowing me with an amazing story that I found hard to put down.
I like a book with characters who have complex stories, but at the same time the author manages to prevent the book from feeling complex. A Sweethaven Summer is one of those books. With my busy schedule, I have to budget my reading time very carefully and I don’t like to get stuck in a story that just does not go anywhere. This book moved along smoothly without feeling rushed or undone. I really can’t think of anything I didn’t like about A Sweethaven Summer. Courtney Walsh is an author that I will be keeping my eye on form here on out.
