Summer by the Sea: A perfect, feel-good summer romance

Summer by the Sea is a beautiful, heart-warming summer read about sisters, first love and not always getting what we want – but sometimes ending up with exactly what we need.

They say there’s always one summer that changes you.

For Faith the one summer she can’t forget is when she fell in love as a teenager – only for her sister, Casey, to steal her man. Now, at the request of her beloved ninety-year-old Grandmother, Faith has agreed to a family holiday – at their childhood beach house, where it all began.

Faith hasn’t seen her sister in years but is finally ready to forgive and forget, enjoy the sunshine and relive happy memories. What she’s not ready for is meeting Jake Buchanan – the owner of the beach house – or the long-forgotten feelings he ignites in her.

Can Faith overcome the hurt of the past, rekindle the close bond she had with Casey and make this summer THE ONE to remember?

  1. The perfect book to whisk you away this summer. Ah, bliss. One of my most anticipated books of the year: Jenny Hale’s new Summer novel. Last year, Jenny’s summer book Love Me For Me earned the title as My Favourite Book of 2014, so to say I had high expectations for this one would be an understatement. 

  2. Gorgeously summery perfection This story is my favourite Jenny Hale story so far and I absolutely loved her first three books. Jenny has such a beautiful way of writing its so vivid and evocative and the Outer Banks where the book was set was painted with such warmth, beauty and clarity, with incredible sun sets and gorgeous quaint seaside descriptions, I already want to pack my bags and fly out there to experience it myself.
