Dive into Summer People and discover a breathtakingly fresh, yet heady and rich read. Take a ferry to a fictional island off of the Maine coast in the USA where islanders Rachel and Sterling prepare for the summer intake, which this year includes Vee and Mike. When sparks of attraction ignite between Vee and Rachel and past lives and secrets are exposed, emotional chaos reigns. I simply adore Julie Cohen’s writing, with each new book she takes me to a different place, and her unmistakable tone hits all the right spots. This relationship tale concentrates not only on a love story, but also friendship. Brightly vivid chapters are headed by one of the four main characters. While Vee and Rachel remain the focus, it was fascinating to step into the thoughts and feelings of Mike and Sterling. The surrounding characters within the community add to the colour and vibrancy, and Unity Island ensures a wonderful sense of place envelops the tale. With the spotlight on an understanding of self, and being true to whoever you are, I found this an inspiring and stimulating, as well as hugely entertaining read. Joining our LoveReading Star Books, Summer People is truly intoxicating, and in the best way opens hearts and minds to set them free.
