Review: Summer by the Tides by Denise Hunter
What can I say…another charming read from Denise Hunter. This is probably my favorite book so far. I just knew when I started this book, this was going to be a good one. Summer by the Tides captures your heart with a story of three sisters who past has haunted them, forgiveness and finding love when you least expect it.
Let’s begin with Maddy. After being betrayed by her boyfriend and her job, she get an unexpected message about her grandmother being missing and heads out to her beach house in Sea Haven. Surprised to see her sisters Nora and Emma, they got the same message and went there as well. There is a bit of a backstory between Nora and Emma, not going to spoil it for you but makes the book very interesting. All I’m going to tell you is that the last time they were here at this house, it change there lives forever.
During this time, as they go through the house, memories and mementos bring back the past. Buried secrets come to light with as their past and present rewrite their family’s story. Will they let history repeat itself or will they change the narrative to write another chapter. So much happening in this story that makes you realize how precious time is, especially with family.
Honestly, I took my time with this one because I didn’t want it to end. I loved everything from the sisters, the grandmother and the budding romance between Maddy and Connor. Both have some issues that make it tough but you really want to see them have a hea. Like I said before, after reading this one, I have to say this is my current favorite. If you are a fan of Denise than you will love this one. Here’s another good one to add to the list.
