One of the goals on my Summer Bucket List was to read three books, and I was very excited when given the chance to read and review Summer’s List by Anita Higman.
A dying wish alters the course of a young woman’s life.
Life hadn’t been easy for Summer Snow. In acts of selflessness—caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother’s bookstore—she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love . . . didn’t turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something—or someone.
Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer’s past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way?
This book could not have come at a better time for me. While dealing with my less than impressive LSAT score’s arrival, I realized that it was time to let go of my plan and embrace God’s plan for me. I think that’s a very relevant theme throughout this book, and I found that to be very comforting. God works in mysterious ways, and I’m confident this book found me right when I needed it.
This book is an easy read. I started it on my lunch break one day, and I blinked and had finished four chapters. It has happiness, and adventure, and some sadness, so if you’re a softie like me, you’ll want your tissues. My biggest complaint about the book was the dialogue; it felt very Little House on the Prairie or Brady Bunch to me. However, others may love it. Just keep that in mind when purchasing the book 🙂
Overall, I enjoyed this book! If I was going to give it a stars rating, I would give Summer’s List a 3.5 out of 5.
If y’all have any questions about the book, I’ll be glad to answer them!
Since I’ve finished this book, I’ll be sharing the next book pick over on Instagram tonight 🙂
