I just can’t resist titles that start with “Summer at.” I’m going to blame my lingering winter blues on that one! Summer at the Cape is one of two books with this general theme, and honestly? I have zero regrets about reading both.

Cami has always kinda been the sore thumb in the family. And really, everywhere she goes. It isn’t her fault. Her little sisters were twins, her mother a free spirit, and her father a lawyer. It’s impossible to fit into any of those categories. The divorce just made all these differences more apparent.

Twenty years later, Cami’s relationship with her family still isn’t what it could be, especially when it comes to her sisters. But one phone call is still all it takes to alter her world. One of her sisters is dead.

I feel like Summer at the Cape has a little bit of something for everyone. It’s a contemporary romance and women’s fiction rolled into one, but that statement doesn’t grasp all that Summer at the Cape offers.

This was such an emotional read. As an only child, I couldn’t personally relate to many parts of this story, and yet the words pulled at me and made me feel like my heart was along for the ride. That’s the story I’m looking for when hunting for an emotional read. It’s also something that Summer at the Cape truly nailed.

It was easy to become invested in this cast of characters, especially Cami. Her story is so human, even while dealing with the worst that life offers. Perhaps I should say especially that it probably depends on your perspective.

I am so happy to have taken the time to read Summer at the Cape. This was the first novel I’ve read by RaeAnne Thayne, and you better believe I’ll be adding her to my list of authors to keep an eye out for.

Thanks to HQN and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
