They say falling in love is easy. But what if you know it’ll break your heart?
For Emily Tate, returning to her charming childhood home Oyster Bay is like coming up for air after the fast pace of her city life. At the farm her grandfather built, surrounded by sister Rachel’s chatter, Gram’s buttermilk biscuits, and the soft, white sand, Emily is reminded of exactly who she is and what she holds most dear.
When Emily starts work at elegant Water’s Edge Inn, Charles Peterson, the handsome new owner, asks for her help. He wants to expand and needs Emily to teach him the local ways, so he can convince the planning commission. Emily vows to make him fall in love with her hometown, just the way it is.
At work, Charles is reserved and serious, yet once Emily has him kicking off his shoes in the sand and sailing across the glistening Chesapeake Bay, she sees another side to him, and their easy rapport feels like the start of something big.
But when it becomes clear Charles’s plans for the inn involve bulldozing Oyster Bay, Emily is heartbroken. Will she lose her home and Charles all at once, or can she save Oyster Bay, and give true love a chance?
I loved this story!
I started to read Summer at Oyster Bay during a stormy night and the beautiful writing and the compelling plot almost made me lose my sleep.
I've just moved out of old house where I lived the days of my youth with my late grandparents and this story hit really close to home.
I loved Emily,her character was so realistic and relatable at some point I believed I was reading my own story...unfortunately I'm still looking for my Charlie.
All the characters are amazing and page after page you hope they can all have their happy ending.
" I miss you so much,Emily.You are stonger than you think.
It feels like I'm gone,but remember I'm right here.
I'm just a thought away,wherever you go.
I love you.
