On a Summer Tide: Review and Giveaway

This was such a fun Memorial Day weekend read, the book culminated on Memorial Day and I completed it just as our Memorial Day camping weekend came to a close.  It was the perfect companion on our weekend away. I devoured it and I am so glad there will be more to come. Suzanne Woods Fisher is a talented writer who crafts not only engaging and interesting characters, but also story lines that are both relateable and an escape from my own reality.

The three sisters portrayed in “On a Summer Tide” have characteristics I can see in myself and in my own sister relationships. However,  they also had enough differences from each other and from me leaving my interest peaked and me fully engaged in their conflicts, how they would or would not resolve them, and highly invested into them and their relationships.

The sisters face a great deal of loss, adventure, and self-discovery in this story and not only did I love the culmination of this book, but I am waiting with baited breath for the sequential books to release to hear more about their lives and where their decisions will take them. I loved the setting! As Fisher bounces us back and forth between “Three Sisters Island” and it’s quaint small town vibe, the past that brought them all here today, and the busy and chaotic lives the sisters all have lead leading up to their present day situation I easily jumped from character to character and found the story easy to follow yet complicated enough to leave me flipping pages without stopping. I really related to both the characters and the story and yet found it also completely refreshing and outside the norm of my usually reading.

The book was an easy read, and I’ve already shared it with a friend. I cannot wait for book two in this series and I hope you’ll read on to read more about the book, snag a recipe from Fisher, and join in the great giveaway included in the rest of this post.

Thanks to Celebrate Lit bloggers for my copy of the book. All the opinions shared here are honest and my own.

Sometimes love hurts—and sometimes it can heal in the most unexpected way.

Camden Grayson loves her challenging career, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. “Moving on” is Cam’s mantra. But there’s a difference, her two sisters insist, between one who moves on . . . and one who keeps moving.

Cam’s full-throttle life skids to a stop when her father buys a remote island off the coast of Maine. Paul Grayson has a dream to breathe new life into the island—a dream that includes reuniting his estranged daughters. Certain Dad has lost his mind, the three sisters rush to the island. To Cam’s surprise, the slow pace of island life appeals to her, along with the locals—and one in particular. Seth Walker, the scruffy island schoolteacher harbors more than a few surprises.

With On a Summer Tide, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher begins a brand-new contemporary romance series that is sure to delight her fans and draw new ones.

2 cups sifted flour

½ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 cups drained blueberries
