A Sweethaven Summer is one of those books.Â Â Since I am a lover of making scrapbooks, the description of the book tugged at my heart.Â Loved the characters and the relationship between them.Â I’ve never had a “summer home” but the description of Sweethaven made me want to go there and enjoy the small town.
A great book for your summertime reading at the pool or beach.Â I plan on reading the other 2 books in this series by Courtney WalshÂ and will pass on a review.Â I would also recommend this book for a teenage young girl.
Here is the description from Amazon.com:
A faded scrapbook reveals secrets that reconnect old friends in a place called Sweethaven. Campbell Carter has come to Sweethaven in search of answers about her mother’s history. Just before losing a battle with cancer, Suzanne Carter sent letters to childhood friends from her hometown of Sweethaven, Michigan. Suzanne’s three friends — Lila, Jane, and Meghan — haven’t spoken in years, yet each has pieces of a scrapbook they made together as girls. Suzanne’s letters have lured them all back to the idyllic lakeside town, where they meet Campbell and begin to remember what was so special about their long Sweethaven summers. As the scrapbook reveals secrets from the past, old wounds are mended, lives are changed, and friendships are restored — just as Suzanne intended. A Sweethaven Summer is the first book in the Sweethaven series, followed by A Sweethaven Homecoming and A Sweethaven Christmas.
Enjoy with 5 thumbs up,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
