Summer Snow is lost. When she calls off her engagement, she knows it’s the right thing to do. There was never a spark, a real connection with her fiancé. But will she ever experience that? Feeling the need for comfort, she visits her granny who gives her more bad news. Summer’s granny’s health is failing and her beloved Granny, who is her last remaining relative will not be around much longer. Granny gives Summer a list of things she wants her to do to try and find herself instead of taking care of her. The first thing on that list is to find her childhood friend, Martin Langtree. As Summer and Martin cross items off the list, their friendship picks up right where they left off twenty years ago. But is there a possibility for more than friendship?
While reading this book, I kept expecting more. More what, I’m not sure. More conflict or more mystery perhaps. This story was pretty straightforward. Martin and Summer and polite to the extent of annoying, and they both seem almost too perfect. The romance is too straightforward. Probably the best part of this story was the struggle between Martin and his brothers (and that dynamic could have been explored more). All in all, the book was so-so. Not something that will stand out as exceptional or memorable.
