ARC Review: Summer on Sunshine Bay by Debbie Mason
Eva Rosetti is so ecstatic to finally have her daughter home that she pushes aside her misgivings about having to come face-to-face with Lila’s father again. That is until he sweeps into town and feelings Eva thought far behind her resurface....
With a family business to save and a wedding to plan, Eva and Lila’s reunion is more than either bargained for, but with a little luck and a whole lot of support from friends and family, it may just turn out to be the best summer of their lives.
As you know I love Debbie Mason's books. She has a way of writing characters that you can't help by love even when you don't like them right away. Her books are full of fun, love and great families.
When I went into the story, I knew that it would be more woman's fiction than romance. Since I love Mason, I read it anyway. I don't really enjoy woman's fiction but again, Mason.
As a whole this isn't the story for me. I didn't like David at all. In fact, most of the time Mason can take a character I hate and change that but that doesn't happen here. I just couldn't trust him. It might be for the fact that he's not really a player in this story. It's more about Lila and her family.
The story jumps around a lot but I didn't mind that. I like a busy story. What I didn't really care for is that I didn't feel like I really got to know anyone. Like most of her books this one didn't have the caring and depth to it. I think that's because it's not really a romance. In a romance you'd want a lot of David and Lila and a bit of family in friends. Instead, you have the opposite.
I think if you enjoy women's fiction then give this a try, she's a wonderful author.
