Review of That Summer Place

Review of That Summer Place

I liked Old Things by Jill Barnett with the two daughters and the island's "handyman", someone from Catherine's past and will give it a 4 star. Two teenage girls on an island without TV can lead to a boring time. It was about love and memories. Some sexual content but no bad language.

Debbie Macomber knows how to write. Her Private Paradise with two strangers and their children was a fun read. A friend of Beth, a main character, says "God doesn't close a door without opening a window" but Beth  responds with " Unfortunately a seagull just flew in that open window and pooped right on the carpet". It looks like they text each other all the time because at the beginning of the chapters there are messages to each other.  A clean read and one that brings hope. As always, I give her writings a 5 star.

The third read is from Susan Wiggs and it is Island Time. It is my first read from her and I liked it but the sex was a little fast for me. This read is all about the area of Spruce Island and what nature has to offer. Makes you want to go there and see the beauty. It was a fun read about two different people, one who is so tied up with work habits and the other is more free living and sees the glass half full.

These are short reads about  Rainshadow Lodge a, Victorian mansion on an island, and the stories about the people who stay there for a month.
