  • A light summer novel

    One Perfect Summer by Brenda Novak has Serenity Alston surprised by the results she received after submitting a DNA test to 23andMe. She learns that she has two half-sisters. The three women will be spending the summer together in Tahoe. It will give the three women a chance to get to know each other and try to identify their common link. Each woman is going through a rough patch. Serenity just finished testifying at her husband’s trial after turning him in to the police. Lorelei discovered her husband cheated on her with someone unexpected. Reagan had a one-night stand with someone from work and cannot face returning to her job. Each woman will need to overcome their issues before moving forward. One Perfect Summer is a light read that touches on an interesting topic. Imagine taking a DNA test and finding out you have two siblings. I liked that the three women who were at an intersection in their lives. It was touching to see them go from strangers to true sisters. The point-of-view switches between the three sisters which can be confusing in the beginning until you get used to each ladies’ voice. It does mean that there is a repetition of information. It does, though, allow us to understand what each woman is feeling and thinking. I wanted to find out how the three women were related and came to be separated. When the solution was revealed, I was surprised because it came out of left field. I liked Lorelei’s daughter, Lucy and how she helped an injured man. I did find the pacing a little sluggish and there is foul language (too much) in this book. I was happy with the epilogue that showed the women rallying around Reagan for an important event. One Perfect Summer is a sweet story about sisterly bonds, second chances, overcoming the past, finding love, and family.

  • My Musings!

    I’ve awaited the release of this book for quite some time, and once it was out, I downloaded it. I listened to the audio version of One Perfect Summer by Brenda Novak. I have been a fan of Ms. Novak for years and love her books, no matter which genre she chooses for her latest story. Whether it’s a romance, small town USA, a thriller or mystery, or in this case, women’s fiction, I’m confident it will be fantastic! One Perfect Summer is another well written book with enthralling characters and an original storyline. This book follows three sisters who have just found each other. There is a mystery to be solved. The half-sisters set out to find out who their father may have been. Since they established their connection through DNA testing, they have very few clues as to the identity. I thoroughly enjoyed their journey. It’s a difficult task to develop the stories of three main characters and fully flesh them out. The talented Ms. Novak does this with finesse. I became vested in all three women. There is a romantic arche in this book, but it is by no means the central focus. It’s a story of three women facing their lives with many unanswered questions where each must face their future and ones that look so different than what they had expected. Serenity is searching for the clue that would explain how these other two women are related to her. She has an established family and doesn’t want to approach them until she has more information. It is Serenity’s love interest that is the strongest. I enjoyed that aspect of the story and wanted her to find a happy ending!
