An Endless Summer (Summer #2)
by C.J. Duggan
Release Date: 07/17/13
Summary from Goodreads:
Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.
“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.”
I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.”
A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”
After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:
Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past.
How had her dad let it come to this?
With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.
In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.
Amy Henderson has finally come home and is trying her best to save her family’s business, The Onslow Hotel, from being sold. With the help of her friends and cousins she gets to work turning the place back into the place it used to be. Everywhere she turns there is Sean helping and teasing her. When will he finally see her not as the girl he rescued but as a young woman she has become.
The easy writing style that this talented author has makes this a book that is very difficult to put down. I literally devoured this book, it was just that good. The characters are imperfect and yet so easy to connect to. Sean has to be my favorite one so far. The plot moves along at a wonderful speed and has a few surprises along its path to your heart. A perfect story for these hot summer days, this is a wonderful addition to the Summer series and I am totally looking forward to the next release.
