    Fantastic Beach Read!

    I adored this book! First, being at the beach is my favorite place in the entire world and any book that is set in a beautiful beachside cottage is my kind of book. From the start where Hallie read Aunt Clara's bucket list for her to the end, I was sucked in to her story. I had a feeling from the beginning who Hallie was destined to be with (yay!) and even though the road was bumpy and a bit long, she got there. A great vacation read!

    Okay not great

    This book was just okay for me. I would have liked to see a stronger main character in Hallie. We learn later in the book about something Hallie dealt with all by herself, but anytime her best friend Ben is around, she seems completely helpless. For example, at one point in the book she comforts two other people and seems surprised that she could do this by herself without having to lean on others for support. Seriously? The "secrets" in the book either seemed obvious or seemed to come into the story out of nowhere.

    Great Summer Beach Read

    Summer at Firefly Beach by Jenny Hale is a story about love, family ties, and following your dreams. The story follows Hallie and her family, who are beyond devastated about the recent passing away of their beloved Aunt Clara, as they spend a few weeks at Firefly Beach to try and get back some of what was lost to them. Everyone in her family was given an inheritance except for Hallie, who was given an old bucket list she created when she was 12. In order to receive what her Aunt has left her, Hallie must to complete it. As the story goes on and Hallie begins to check off items on her list, she discovers things she thought were lost to her, including love. I really enjoyed this book. The way the author portrays grief is totally spot on. At first the Flynn family is so grief stricken, they can barely function. As the book goes on however, we see each of them start to heal with time and togetherness. The descriptive language Jenny Hale uses to describe the sand, waves, and the little town of Firefly beach had me literally pining for the ocean! I also really enjoyed meeting each of the additional characters and reading about their backstories. Lewis and Gavin helped to add to more depth to the story. And of course Ben! It doesn't get any sweeter then Ben! I loved watching his relationship with Hallie develop and grow! That last scene on the beach was swoon worthy! Overall, really good read!

    Engaging read

    ****Summer at Firefly Beach. Hallie is consumed with grief when her great aunt Clara passes and is also very confused about her inheritance. While the rest of the family got their inheritances immediately, Hallie is tasked with completing the items on a bucket list composed when she was 12. Six months into her grief she and her family go to visit Uncle Hank, himself still struggling with his new widowhood. Childhood friend Ben, always Hallie’s rock and support also makes the trip. Hallie finds her uncle to be a shadow of his formerly strong self and the cottage he shared with Clara in disrepair. Can either of these two find the strength needed to survive and will Hallie ever get her inheritance? Jenny Hale is a new author to me and while I found her very adept at descriptive phrases, I felt she overplayed the grief angle...repetitively. Turns out Hallie’s pain also has another cause that may have her turning away from her true place. One of her bucket list items was to have a wish come true, but which wish might that be? As Hallie comments, she has made lots of wishes and none have ever come true. Overall this was a good story with interesting characters and some surprises along the way. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

    A great summer romance

    Even Though this book is predictable It was a beautiful love story and I truly enjoyed the Read. Another book I stayed up way to late to finish! Hallies favourite Aunt has died and before she can get her inheritance she must complete a list of dreams she made when she was 12. The story follows Hallie, her family and her best friend Ben as they go back to her aunts house to grieve, and Hallie attempts to accomplish her list. The author did a great job setting every scene in this book I could envision this beautiful beach town as if I was there. However, I actually found it to be too descriptive in many parts which made it a bit of a slow read. I don’t need several pages describing one tiny photo gallery that could’ve been perfectly described in a single paragraph. Like I said though it was a beautiful love story that makes a great summer read I just skimmed through some pages I felt unnecessary. The end is pure perfection which is why it it got 4 stars ❤️
