For a romance novel, there was scant little romance to be found here. Lots of lust, but no romance.Lucy lives & works peacefully in quiet, rich St. Caroline until her first crush, Sterling, comes steamrolling back into town. Her beloved boss dies, Sterling fires her, then he threatens the job of her best friend, literally calls her an "underprivileged ragamuffin", and then promises to do away with the beloved summer camp she loves.And yet for page after page, all we read about is how much sh [...]

3.5 Learning to See and Understand Stars * * * 1/2Isn't it interesting how two people can experience the same thing and each have a very different experience. how we perceive things and make assumptions can impact us; shape who we are as peopleThis story approaches this idea from a number of ways and makes its point. All of us have turning points in our lives things happen to either open our hearts and minds to the possibility of life we may not have known or we can shut down and close our minds [...]

I liked Douglas and eve and am in love with Gina and her baking! definitely worth reading this book and I will visit st. Caroline again in the other books

I think this will go down as the worst book I've read all summer. Nothing about this was plausible. Not to mention nothing was even resolved at the end. It was less of a cliff hanger and more of let me create a somewhat satisfied ending than anything that makes sense. Both main characters are increasingly annoying. Even with their sob story backgrounds you never build an emotional connection toward any of them. All they want to do is have sex and stare at each other. Ugh.

This is my first review in English so… sorry for mistakes!I would recommend this book for lovers of millionaires and/ or insta-lust stories. I had read some and this one falls into that category.They are not my cuppa.It is the only fault I can put on the story. If they had detailed it in the blurb, I wouldn´t had pick up this one.I found it unrealistic and shallow. The MC are driven by sex, and only sex. (And FYI, there isn´t explicit description of sex in this book, it just describes the fo [...]

Lucy, now the retreat's marketing director, was once an underprivileged teen who visited the inn's summer camp where she and Sterling had an intimate one-night encounter. Now Sterling is back after many years abroad to take control of the inn. He [...]

As soon as I saw the setting of this book was the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, I knew I had to read it! Growing up in Maryland, this meant summer to me.The author makes the Bay, the Chesapeake Inn and the camp for children come to life with her words. The conflict of Lucy having to now work for her teenage crush at the inn was difficult. I liked her character a lot and could feel the different emotions she was dealing with.A good book to read on a hot summer day. And I'm sure you will might jus [...]

Oh what a sweet story. I liked Lucy a lot and Sterling was just as annoying as one would expect him to be in a story like this.

A really good contemporary romance with subtle sensual moments. It was sweet and steamy, but not overtly sexual. I really enjoyed it, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

I found the hero to be an arrogant snob and jerk and the relationship with the heroine is manipulative on both their parts. Neither is a character to like or care about.

I simply loved this book so much. The connection between Sterling and Lucy was really strong and even 15 years later it was still there. It's a great love story and a good read

Summer Again was once named Falling for the Prodigal Son, but I like this title better. Sterling was always the rich lonely boy lurking in the shadows of the camp while the kids had fun. His parents owned a fancy resort with a summer camp for troubled kids attached. Lucy was one of those kids fifteen years ago but she's come back to manage the marketing for the Inn. Upon his father's illness Sterling was requested to return from jaunting over Europe and run the Inn, never expecting to find his " [...]

There is a certain vulnerability in Sterling that is not readily visible until Lucy brings it out. This is a story of opposites who are really alike in so many ways. Lucy coming to grips with her own upbringing and the hurdles she faced was heartbreaking. The author has created in these two characters a vision of how even though outward appearances create the possibility of judgment that is wrong in so many ways. I thoroughly enjoyed the history that Sterling and Lucy had, and its draw to bring [...]

I found this book for free on via Freebooksy; this is my honest review.It should have been a romance but it's lust all over the story. Chemistry, yes. Romance, no.Not once did either think beyond the year's end, or about showing up together in town, have babies, going out romantically to a restaurant. No it was all about when am I going to see her/him naked again? When can I kiss her/him again? and on and on.Good editing. Good story in general. Financial problems and the classic "privileged boy [...]

This book was a great holiday read. Sterling and Lucy had a lot of feelings about each other but didn't realize what they had meant. The reason for this is they were both trying to 'seduce' each other to get what they want! Lucy wanted the Kids Kamp to stay open and Sterling wanted it gone because it was sitting on prime property! I will say, how it ends is not how they thought it would! Great read!

"Summer Again" is about discovering you still have an attraction to your first teenage crush long after life has taken you both in different directions.The characters are developed just enough to give the reader sufficient insite into the main characters, Lucy and Sterling, backgrounds and differences. There are no "ah hah" moments or startling revaluation's."Summer Again" is a easy, quick read for a day at the beach or a weekend at the cottage.

A very sweet romance story, a summer read over a weekend for me. I enjoyed the story i just found it a bit too sweet for me, i like more grit in the romance side for myself. I did enjoy the look at the past of the two main characters. So it was great to see the two sides to the romance developing from past to now. Worth a read if you like a story that is sweet and takes you away to a location that is idylic sounding

I got this book for free with . It was a good read. However, I got to the end and I felt cheated. It just dropped with no warning. I was hoping to hear more on how the camp was going to go in the new place, what kind of plans would come about with Lucy and Sterling, etc. Good book to pass the time reading. Happy Reading!

If this is your genre, it's probably quite a good, sweet read. Bit like a modern day Mills and Boons. For me it was way too predictable. And unbelievable. Lucy gets treated like a daughter but then gets ignored for no apparent reason? Nice sounding parents totally ignore their only son? Never mind the " twist " at the end with the property next door.
