Hi everyone 🙂
Hope you are all well and enjoyed my last review and if you live in the UK hope you are enjoying this lovely weather.
The book I have recently been reading is “Summer at Oyster Bay” by Jenny Hale. It follows Emily Tate who moves back in with her Gram and back to Oyster Bay after she said no to marrying her now ex boyfriend Brad. Emily then starts work at Water’s Edge Inn. She then finds out that Charles Peterson the owner of the Inn wants to expand the business and he asks Emily to help him see what others see in Oyster Bay and make him fall in love with it. With Emily trying to help Charles to see that Oyster Bay is just the way it is and make him fall in love with it, will that be all Charles falls in love with?.
This is the second book I have read by Jenny Hale and I really enjoyed reading it. Its a feel good, summery read and is perfect for reading on a beach or sitting in the garden.
It was full of drama, romance, friendship and family values from the onset and throughout.
I loved how Jenny gave it a lighthearted feel but also made sure it had just the right amount of drama and excitement to make it a really good read.
Jenny also showed the importance of family and she touched on this quite a lot throughout the story which I really liked. Whether that be the bond of sisterhood between Emily and her Sister Rachel or the bond she has with her Gram, who brought her and her sister up when their parents died.
On the subject of characters…
There are a number of wonderful and colourful characters that play a big part not only in Emily’s life but also the story.
Emily is the main character however she is very caring, kind and loves her family dearly. She is also a very strong person but she doesn’t realise that until the end. I found that she wasn’t just loved by the characters in the book but I think as reader you will love her as well. I loved how Jenny portrayed her innocence’s throughout the story and as the story went on you saw her grow as a person and see her realise that she is actually a very strong women.
There are a number of other characters, whether that be Rachel who is Emily’s sister who want to go back to work after having her daughter Clara but her husband Jeff isn’t to keen. Then there is the handsome and gorgeous Charles Peterson the owner of Water’s Edge Inn and along with lots more.
It had its fair share of drama, twists and turns, which made it a real page turner.
I loved Jenny’s writing style and how she keeps it a very light hearted read but leaves just the right amount of suspense.
On that not this book is a must read this Summer and I highly recommend that you read it.
It will have you laughing, crying and leave you on the edge of your seat.
Jenny is definitely one of my favourite authors at the moment.
I hope you have enjoyed this review.
Until next time.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
