This OR That #Giveaway № 137 ~ Summer Secrets by Jane Green OR A Groom with a View by Jill Churchill #SummerSecrets #AGroomWithAView


I have sooooo many books!

The This or That Giveaway! feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to cull my collection and to share some of the many books I have. I get to clear off some of my shelves to make room for more books and give someone else the chance to enjoy these treasures.

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


Summer Secrets
by Jane Green
Paperback ~ June 2015

June, 1998: At twenty seven, Catherine Coombs, also known as Cat, is struggling. She lives in London, works as a journalist, and parties hard. Her lunchtimes consist of several glasses of wine at the bar downstairs in the office, her evenings much the same, swigging the free booze and eating the free food at a different launch or party every night. When she discovers the identity of the father she never knew she had, it sends her into a spiral. She makes mistakes that cost her the budding friendship of the only women who have ever welcomed her. And nothing is ever the same after that.

June, 2014: Cat has finally come to the end of herself. She no longer drinks. She wants to make amends to those she has hurt. Her quest takes her to Nantucket, to the gorgeous summer community where the women she once called family still live. Despite her sins, will they welcome her again? What Cat doesn’t realize is that these women, her real father’s daughters, have secrets of their own. As the past collides with the present, Cat must confront the darkest things in her own life and uncover the depths of someone’s need for revenge.

  1. I remember reading Black Beauty over and over. Now I think I need to read it again.

  2. I grew up in Australia. I remember reading The Secret Seven Series by Enid Blyton, loved it.

  3. I absolutely loved Pippi Longstocking! And any of the Curious George books. And then I devoured the Trixie Belden mystery books...enjoyed her better than Nancy Drew, but read those too! (amweeksoc at comcast dot net)

  4. My mother told me that when I was a very young child, I loved having her read me The Cow Who Fell In The Canal. When reading on my own, I loved the Bobbsey Twins books, the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, and so many more.
