Book Review: Barefoot Summer

Madison’s heart has been closed for years. But one summer can change everything.

Barefoot SummerIn the years since her twin brother’s drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian in their riverside town, the loss still haunts her.

To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother’s dream of winning the town’s annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast.

Beckett O’Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help—and he’ll give it, because he owes her far more than she’ll ever know.

Madison will do anything—even work with the infamous Beckett O’Reilly—to reach her goal. And as much as she’d like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart.

But Beckett harbors a secret that will test the limits of their new love. Can their romance survive summer’s challenges? And will achieving her brother’s dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?

Summer....what's not to enjoy about a summer book?  Well, summer isn't all about fun and playing in the sun, especially when you're trying to deal with a great loss.  The loss of your twin brother.  Madison is struggling, really struggling and hopes that her nightmares will leave her, she hopes she will find closure, but what's the price?

The price....having to deal with someone she really just does not like, which of course means that you as the reader, are in for some fun!

This book has ups and downs, you'll find yourself smiling and happy, then before you know it, you'll turn the page and feel sadness...a whole lot of emotions are in this story and the characters were wonderful, I felt very drawn into the plot and found this to be a perfect curl up and read for a lazy day when I didn't want to get into anything too 'deep'.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Litfuse Publicity.
