A Summer to Remember by Sue Moorcroft My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Clancy is betrayed by her boyfriend and work colleagues, she takes up the job of caretaker for a row of cottages in Nelson’s Bar, which is a tiny village by the sea. There she find comfort and friendship amoung the locals and, of course, love.
A Summer to Remember is such a sunny book! The village, with its cliff top walks and lack on mobile signal or internet, feels like a character in itself. Clancy is very earnest and thoughtful, but that very thoughtfulness makes it easy for people to take advantage of her.
Aaron feels he needs to take care of people and putting his family first all the time sometimes gets in the way of things in his own life.
The story is gentle and heart warming. I liked that Clancy didn’t change completely from business minded city girl to laid back country girl. She’s still business minded, just in a different location and in a different field of business.
There is a really nice sub plot about a young man called Harry too.
This is a great summer read. I heartily recommend it.
