Summer is for Lovers by Jennifer McQuiston

Summer Is for Lovers - Jennifer McQuiston

Another delightful read by this author. I very much enjoyed the first "What happens in Scotland". This story is different and I love the setting, far away from London balls and such. Its set a bit later than regency and you really get a feel for the Brighton beach crowd.


A very unique heroine with a spine of steel and broad swimmer shoulders :). Considered "weird" by the London summer crew descending onto Brighton.

I really got into this one from the start where a 12 year old heroine saves the hero from drowning himself. Of course she doesn't know this, just scolds him for his lack of swimming skills. She being an accomplished, albeit secret swimmer. Lady's don't swim after all. I liked her from that time, liked her even more grown up.

 

The story picks back up when the hero arrives back 11 years later with his sick mother. Now his constant pushing the heroine away, because of him thinking he doesn't deserve love, for what he thought he did, or didn't do in the past, drove me nuts a few times.

But the banter and the delightful characters of Caroline and David made this a very enjoyable read.

I was quite surprised to read in the excerpt at the end of this one, who the heroine of the next book is. Not who I would have picked, but I am intrigued.
