Book #36 – Summer by the Sea

Summer by the SeaSummer by the Sea by Susan Wiggs. I really should have purchased this one. More great recipes. I even made the rosemary lemonade for a cookout! The story was great – a fast summer read full of romance and good food. I really liked Rosa and (especially) Alex – both for their straight-forwardness and their personalities. Ms. Wiggs does an excellent job at creating believable characters that don’t fall into mind-numbing spirals of missed chances and bad choices. Her characters are smart, likeable, and most importantly – you cheer for them.

And seriously, the recipes are worth the cover price. Now I have to go buy it because I already returned it to the library.

My one complaint, hence the missing half-a-star, is that I guessed the mystery.

Still, highly recommended:[rating:4.5]

  1. I really liked this too. Perfect summer reading! Gee, I guess I’ll have to try that lemondade!

  2. I actually made it with limes, then mixed it with soda water and vodka. Excellent!
