Storms come in many forms
This book Summer Storms by Rebekah Lyn is quite an excellent read. This is one of her first books and I think it is very good.
I always love books that have storms or tragedy in them and having two hurricanes in this one makes it fantastic.
I really came to love the characters and where they live and work. The description of the surrounding area is incredible.
I like how our own struggles and hardships can help out someone else who is going through similar circumstances. We never know what in our lives will help others.
Lizzie is a great help to Jeffery and Ian is there to help them both. Some of the scenes in the book are quite suspenseful and full of fast-action. You won't find a boring part in Summer Storms and I was captured right from the start. An excellent read. Buy this book and help a new author and you will really be glad and enjoy this book. I recommend Summer Storms.
Thank you to the Author/Publicist for providing this book for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
ummer Storms...hightly recommended read!
From the moment I "met" the characters I was instantly in love with them. I found Lizzy and Jeffery intriguing as they both searched for something to fill a void in their lives. Anyone who has ever lost a loved one will be drawn to them and their struggles at understanding why these things happened. Spiritually this can be a very difficult thing and this book covered it beautifully. My heart was warmed by strangers doing kind deeds, neighbors looking out for one another and communities pulling together after tragedy and destruction. Can't wait for the sequal and to see how my "friends" are doing! :)
Excellent quick read
This is an amazing book that looks at several different aspects of relationships. The author does an excellent job of looking at how different people deal with grief, forgiveness, and friendship. It's the story of a young lady who works at a hotel and is shopping around for a house. She final finds one that is completely run down, but she can see the potential. The only problem is that she does not know how to do home repairs. This adventure in home repairs is what brings several different people into her life. Each person plays an important role and she either teaches them something or learns something from them. There is a little bit of romance but it is not the main focus and just adds to the story. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was able to read it over two evenings.
