  • The Summer Seekers is a delightfully fresh summer

    Sarah Morgan has the wonderful ability to bring characters to life with her recent standalone novels and her latest release The Summer Secrets is no exception. The plot is based around three women at different stages of life, Kathleen (I love it when I see characters with my name) still sharp as pin but feeling boxed in by her current situation and her well-meaning daughter. She is looking for excitement and what better than a road trip across America with a new companion, Martha. Their friendship blossoms along their journey and there are plenty of adventures to be had, and love to be found.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Tender, Touching & Utterly Delightful!

    Such an adorable read; I always enjoy Sarah Morgan’s novels but this one really got to me. Kathleen is eighty years old and still living in the large family home; when she has a fall, her daughter Liza broaches the subject of selling up and moving to a residential home. Liza has a demanding family and can’t deal with her mother on top of everything else. However, Kathleen has other ideas; she’s always been independent and spirited and decides what she really needs is to travel and advertises for a driver to accompany her across America. Martha has had enough of her family constantly putting her down and a trip across the states with an octogenarian may well be just the ticket. She’s not the best driver in the world, but it’s got to be better than staying at home . . . What a well-conceived story this is. Fantastic characters, each with their own problems, merge together into a terrific read. Kathleen has lived a full life, but yearns for more. Liza does such a lot for everyone else that she has lost her sense of self and Martha? Well, Martha is the one I most identified with. Her family continually put her down and she so badly needs someone to build her confidence and boost her self-esteem. This is beautifully written, alternating between Kathleen and Martha on their trip and Liza at home. I got so engrossed in each part of the tale that it was rather a surprise each time it turned to the other! Tender, touching and utterly delightful, I really cannot recommend this one enough – it is a rich, rewarding read and one I’m happy to give all five sparkling stars.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Read this you won’t be disappointed

    Three women, three lives in turmoil, one summer. Great characters, addictive reading. Highly recommended!!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • A delightful book!

    Oh I loved this book, such a lovely feeling throughout! Kathleen is 80 and lives on her own in a beautiful house in Cornwall. She's always been very independent and an adventurous world traveller so is finding it hard that she's more restricted now due to age. Her daughter, Liza, is always worrying about her and trying to persuade her to sell and go into assisted living accommodation for her own good, which Kathleen is having none of. Then, after a run-in with an intruder, Kathleen decides that life's too short and as she doesn't want to end up in a home and always wanted to travel Route 66 that's what she's going to do, hiring someone to drive and be her companion (25 year old Martha), much to the consternation of her daughter. Kathleen has always kept a tight control of her emotions and been a bit distant with her daughter but during the road trip we found out why. Kathleen starts to open up to Martha about her earlier life and emotions, and Martha starts to find her confidence which has been battered down by her critical family. We also have the delightful Josh, who the ladies pick up along their Route 66 adventure, who isn't quite what he seems either. Back home Liza is pushed too far by her family who treat her like a doormat, even though she lets them, so she takes herself off to the Cornwall house and rediscovers her love of painting and just having a bit of time to herself. And here we also meet Kathleen's next door neighbour, rock star Finn. He was only a side character but I'd love to hear more about him, hopefully in another book! So we have a couple of stories linked together but with everyone working through family issues and coming out the other side a lot stronger and happier. A delightful book!

    Thanks for your feedback!
