A Summer to Remember
Sam lives by the mantra that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
After the tragic loss of her husband, Sam built a new life around friends, her cat Coco and a career she loves. Fending off frequent set-ups and well-meaning advice to ‘move on’, Sam is resolutely happy being single.
But when Sam gets seconded to her firm’s Boston office for the summer, it is more than her career that is in for a shake-up. A spur of the moment decision to visit the idyllic beaches of Cape Cod could end up changing her life forever.
Victoria Cook has written another engaging story that made me smile and swoon. Not going to lie I was a little disappointed to find out most of this story does not take place in the UK, but rather the US. Good news was it took place in Boston and that is all the way across the country from me and a place I’ve never been so I did get to travel with my read, just not as far as I was anticipating. Additionally the setting of the story was quite delightful and quaint. Such a heartwarming story filled with a tremendous amount of hope and heart. A book about starting over, moving on, and never giving up.
Sam lost her husband many years ago and for the most part she has moved on, just not in the romance department. But Sam is satisfied with her life, she is surrounded by good people and successful in her career. A three-month stent in Boston might just be the thing to push her career to the next level. But Boston is not everything she dreamed it to be. Sam was likable although sometimes she frustrated and confuse me. Ethan the rude/stranger/love interest was a good guy who I found quite lovable myself. Also loved all the secondary characters especially Barney and Harry. A fabulously fun story, the perfect way to end my summer of great reading.
