This book gave me the warm and fuzzies from beginning to end. It's a bit of a cliche to call a romance sweet or heartwarming but that's really what The Summer They Never Forgot is.
I was having a pretty horrific day when I picked it up and was hoping I'd end up getting a dose of the levity the cover promised and that's exactly what happened. All the jobs I had around the house completely got forgotten and I ended up reading it in one sitting.
From the very beginning I found myself liking Sandy and I fell in love with Ben, the minute he walked onto the page. Yum. They were familiar, convincing and the conflict pulled me in leaving me really caring about whether or not they ended up together.
This is the kind of book you read when you want to give yourself a bit of a treat after a tough day or on a lazy afternoon. It's definitely going on my re-read pile.
