A Sweet Romance

In SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS, Julia's summer starts off horribly wrong. First, her mom shares the news that their family camp might be sold, then she gets a broken heart from her usual summer fling, and lastly, a betrayal from a stranger.

When Julia meets the tall, dark, and handsome Nick, she didn't realize that he was the possible buyer's son. If she had, she wouldn't have opened up her world of problems to him. But as Julia spends more time with Nick, she can't help but feel that he isn't her enemy, especially when her heart becomes involved. Instead, he might be the key at saving their family camp, which is home to Julia.

I devoured this story in one sitting. I couldn't put it down and found myself captivated by the romance sparking between Nick and Julia. There's so much bad in their past that it helps them to bond and it's also very real to others who have dealt with relatives dying or the impending loss of a home. The ending is one of the best I've read in a while and I loved how everything came together.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of romance or for those going through a hard time. It can be encouraging to see you're not alone and several other people may share the same pain.
