Thank you to Lia Ferrone and Harper Collins for my advance copy of Summertime Guests in exchange for my honest review!
This is a PERFECT summertime beach read. I don’t even know where to begin with this one!
We follow the story of four different couples, an engaged couple looking to be married soon, a couple that is dating, a couple that has been married for awhile with a newborn child, and a widow who embarks to possibly be with the man she thinks she should have been with.
Each couple has their back story and each couple makes gains through this novel. What is most interesting is it all takes place in Boston at the Seafarer Hotel. That is what they have in common. Their problems? They’re all different. But (most) all manage to see the light and work through them through a little self discovery.
Actually, the most interesting part of this story is it starts off with a death. But you don’t know who died. So we go through a few days of these couples at the hotel and it all unfolds. I was shocked at the end.
4 stars. This was part mystery, part domestic fiction, and part could it be romance all rolled into one. It was truly a breath of fresh air and unlike many of the summer beach reads out there now. If you’re looking for something inbetween light and heavy, this is a great read for you!
