Summer's List Book Review

SUMMARY:  A dying wish alters the course of a young woman's life.
     Life hasn'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 shots she had at love . . . didn't work 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 and quirky young man from Summer's past.  With Laney the Chihuahua along for the ride, 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?

REVIEW:  Starting out, I really enjoyed this book.  The idea of Grandma giving Summer a chance to do something fun with her life and catch up on some of the fun she missed out on while taking care of others was enticing.  But, when the story got to Martin's brothers, I'm not sure what happened but the feel of the story changed for me.  It felt oppressive and weird.  This feeling followed me as I read but did lift towards the end of the book.  The ending was good and I liked the way everything tied up.
