Read Along with Sue reviews The Summer of New Beginnings

Please enjoy this review by Read Along with Sue on The Summer of New Beginnings
I can never ever fault this authors work in 100% bringing out emotions in me that I actually “feel” for real long after I close the book.
It soon became apparent to me that I was going to be drawn right in, I was right. I read a lot of psychological thrillers/thrillers and some of those reads have kept me from putting the book down but for different reasons to this one.

I felt I couldn’t close the book on these all too real people, George who had such a brief journey in this story but impacted greatly and was always there in spirit.

Lila, Mother to Megan and Tray.

Tracy is what you’d call the noisy one of sisters, the independent won’t listen to reason child.
She goes her own way. Her experience of love and loss was something no mother would want her daughter to experience but hey, sometimes it’s how we learn. Tracy learnt. And she learnt to value her family more.

Megan was the quiet stronger sister. Calm and less hot headed.

When her father died she took over the small business and felt closer to him for doing that.

There’s a gorgeous little dog mentioned who plays a huge part in this story. A dog Megan rescues. But who does he belong to?
The bond between Megan and Sox the dog was amazing to see grow.

Tracy returned to the nest with a child.
The way the sisters communicated about a problem with the little boy was dealt with in such a realistic human family way that could happen in any of our families.

That’s what I love about Bette Lee Crosby’s books.
It could be any one of us.
It could be someone you know.
Every day people from every day lives.
Family drama at its best.

Yes there’s some romance in here that was so cleverly interwoven that it was a delight to read.

Personally I don’t like the sort of “romance” that is in today’s kind of reads.
Old fashioned, yes I maybe.
And I neither like the “soppy mills and boon” stories of years ago.
Yes I’m realistic and that’s how I love to read love stories in books.
This author has my personal balance right and that’s why I look forward to her next releases.

The Vet Tom.

All these play an important part.

All these characters have become a family and an extension of family or real people to me.
I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
I really can’t.

If you love family drama with emotive issues, with roller coaster rides, with tears of not just sadness but happiness, if you love reading trials and tribulations that can occur within any family, then this is the read for you.

The Summer of New Beginnings

One family learns that love is the greatest miracle of all—from USA Today bestselling author Bette Lee Crosby.

Aspiring journalist Meghan Briggs has always been the responsible one in the family. So when her father passes away unexpectedly, leaving behind his at-risk business, she steps up to save his legacy—even if that means putting her own dreams on hold.

Tracy couldn’t be more different from her sister. She’s always been the rebellious type, without much direction in life. But in the wake of her latest romantic disaster, she finds herself moving back home as a single mother.

As Tracy experiences the difficulties of new motherhood, Meghan faces her own struggle: trying not to fall for the stray puppy she rescued. This is no time for attachments—not to the adorable “Sox,” whose owner is bound to turn up any day, and certainly not to the handsome new vet in town. But as the summer unfolds, she discovers that, like Sox, she may need rescuing, too.

As both sisters navigate unexpected challenges and exciting new relationships, they’ll find that putting the past to rest can make way for beautiful new beginnings. READ MORE…
