Summer Callihan isn't in Cambria for the beach or the ocean or the pine-scented air around Paradise Pines Lodge. She's there as a companion to her flighty cousin, Deah--with the understanding that they will have separate agendas the entire time. Summer just wants to be left alone to dream up the romance novels she writes under a pseudonym.
But never in Summer's wildest writer's imagination does she dream of being caught in an undertow and almost drowning, only to be rescued by a wealthy artist. And when Logan Bullard proves hard to shake, Summer fears for her heart--especially when Deah sets her sights on Logan.
But at Paradise Pines Lodge, what's meant to be has a way of happening...at the best time and in the best way. Miss Angelina Love--who may or may not own the place--has an "in" with Heaven's own "department of romance." And she's determined to see Summer and Logan together.
Summer Dreams is a fanciful delight, a romance with more than a touch of whimsy. I enjoyed the “dream come true” aspect of this story and appreciated Summer’s move past timidity to leadership. Logan is a worthy hero, almost too good to be true.
The one aspect of this story that bothered me was the behaviour of the doe and fawn. I am picky about such things, since my husband and I farmed deer in Saskatchewan.
However, the message of Summer Dreams touched my heart. Author Delia Latham portrayed the faith message clearly and in a way that brought tears to my eyes. Well done.
Summer Dreams earns four stars. Disclaimer: I was given a copy of this book; opinions expressed are my own and of my own accord.
