Tall, tanned, muscular…and to top it off, he’s great with her kids. But he must have a flaw—he’s a man—so Sadie vows to keep her distance.As summer blazes on, the life Sadie is trying so hard to simplify only becomes more complicated—a new career presents itself, her evil ex haunts her, and Aunt Dody reveals a tragic secret—but maybe a little chaos is just what Sadie needs to get her life back in order.
Anne’s Review
*** 2.5 stars ***
Sadie Turner,  narrator , a thirty something woman who had recently divorced her douche bag cheating husband took a summer vacation to her eccentric, funny, light spirited and crazy aunt’s lake house.   She didn’t know that within that one summer, her whole life would change.
This is a definition of an easy beach read.  The story was simple, predictable and actually a little  funny.  The characters were easy to like and the author was right on point with each and every one them.  She was able maintain all the characters uniqueness’ and personalities.   I love how she kept the main character real;  The way she acted in certain scenes is exactly how I would react if I was in her situation.  The only thing that I was not quite  fond of was the way Sadie thinks.  She seems too young and immature.  There was just too many unnecessary fillers and I thought that made the book too long for its own good.  I wish she focused more on the love story.  I enjoyed Des.  Who would not enjoy a sexy, scottish, charming doctor? Their love story development was a little off and inconcise.  I did not really feel any chemistry between Sadie and Des.   I was not sure if this book was New Adult or Young Adult but I kind of hoped the author made the book a little bit more sexier that it was.  The characters were in the thirties and older,  so it would have been quite fun if she took it just a tad bit farther with some scenes.
If you need a good easy book I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a fun summer read.   This is a story of second chances. It’s about loving and believing in yourself.  I’m a true  believer of notion, “till death do us part,” but when it comes to cheating I would have done the same thing.  Never stay with anyone that can hurt you in anyway. I gave it a 2.5 stars because I did finish the book and I enjoyed the characters.
In the book she supposed to have short hair but I like this picture (  I pictured her to be this pretty innocent girl that married the local news guy right after college.  A pretty  face that is a stay at home mom.  Richard is the ex husband that is too cocky and too charming to every single women and how his character is, She is the exact girl that he wants to be the perfect little stay at home wife that looks gorgeous and is more like  a trophy wife while he enjoys other extra curricular activities.
This is what I pictured what Des would have looked like.  Dark hair, strong features and piercing green eyes.  But this is actually Matt Bomer from the popular tv series ” White Collar ” and he also starred in ” Magic Mike “.
