A Summer to Remember by Sue Moorcroft *AD Gifted

Avon Books sent me a free review copy of A Summer to Remember by Sue Moorcroft.

A Summer to Remember by Sue Moorcroft is a perfect read for a lazy summer's day, beautifully written and filled with the best kind of drama. It was exactly what I needed and from beginning to end it made me smile.

5 Words: Friendship, family, summer, love, belonging.

A Summer to Remember starts with a wedding, a dash of attraction, and a whole lot of heartbreak. And then, the fun begins.

I loved this book, the story, the characters, the writing. It was exactly what I needed and I devoured it in a single sitting.

I think my favourite thing about A Summer to Remember by Sue Moorcroft was Clancy, and how she tries to rebuild her life and rediscover herself throughout the book. She's a little impulsive, fraught with insecurities and doubt, and determined to prove herself. And I could relate to her so much that it almost hurt to read.

Even the side characters are full of life and come alive on the page, including Nelson the dog, and separated old couple Ernie and Dilysn - who made me chuckle a lot.

The setting is fantastic - the lack of wi-fi and signal made the story almost timeless, like it could have been set at any time. It was almost like a physical jolt when modern-day life interrupted the story, although things like trips to Tesco really grounded the story.

This book is absolutely perfect for summer. It begs to be read outside, by the pool, lounging in the garden, sprawled in a park. The writing is so summery and rich that I easily got lost in Nelson's Bar and Roundhouse Row, and the drama of those who reside there.

This is not my first Sue Moorcroft book and it will absolutely not be my last.
