Every Summer

Every Summer by Joanne DeMaio
Series: The Seaside Saga #10
Print and e-book, 306 pages
March 3, 2020 by Joanne DeMaio

From New York Times bestselling author Joanne DeMaio comes a novel of one unforgettable week at the shore -- during a summer that changes everything.

Every summer has a story. That couldn't be more true for Jason and Maris Barlow, the Bradford brothers, soon-to-be innkeepers Elsa and Celia, and the rest of The Seaside Saga cast. But this particular summer is leaving its mark on the New England beach town of Stony Point. As lone lobsterman Shane settles in for another week at his rented bungalow by the sea, emotional tides turn. Relationships come unmoored; secret love affairs surface; family bonds are tested.

So head under the trestle, walk the cottage-lined streets, sit on the sandy boardwalk, and spend Every Summer with your favorite beach friends. They're waiting for you.

My thoughts about Every Summer ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"Every Summer, the sea has cast a sweet spell on Maris' life."

I just love this Seaside Saga series and am always excited for my next visit back to Stony Point. Every Summer picks up where the previous book ended and we are dropped back into the lives Jason, Maris, Shane, Celia, Elsa and all the rest. It's like visiting with old friends again. 

This story is a little more fraught with tension and drama than others in the past, as couples try to figure out their lives and as brothers try to reconcile a divide of fifteen years. It was definitely a page turner as I wanted to make sure everyone was going to be okay, and happy. 

And then..... the reader is left with not everything being resolved and not everyone in a happy place. I really need the next book! Luckily Joanne's next book is coming out in May so I don't have long to wait. I love my visits to Stony Point and can't wait to go back again soon. 

I received a copy of Every Summer from the author and this is my honest opinion.
