Another Summer by Sue Lilley
IF YOU LOVE AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER, DON’T MISS THIS COMPULSIVE AND SEXY PAGE-TURNER
Can Evie cure her heartbreak by escaping to a new life in the sun with hot rock singer Jake? Or can Joe convince her one last time that she belongs with him?
Joe is the only man she’s ever loved, since that long hot summer when she was sixteen. But how many lies is too many? Is it time to admit their marriage has fallen apart and they’ve finally reached the end of the road?
Devastated by his latest betrayal, Evie flees to her grandmother’s cottage in the stormy wilds of picturesque Cornwall, to grieve and make plans for an empty future without the man she believed was her soulmate. Alone and vulnerable, she falls under the spell of charismatic Jake who sweeps her head first into an irresistible and steamy affair.
Meanwhile, when Joe comes home to find Evie gone, he’s spurred into action to win her back. But his journey turns into the road trip from hell. Battling his inner demons and the worst weather the UK has seen in years, he has to drive the full length of the country to reach the remote Cornish cottage where Evie is hiding.
He believes he can persuade her to come back. But does he mean it when he swears he’s turned over a new leaf? Can he convince her one more time that he can change? Or has he left it too late to realise he’s always loved her?
Then a single moment of madness causes a tragic accident in a raging storm. An ancient bridge is smashed to matchwood and it seems that any hope of a happy future will be swept away. The old hurts are much too deep and forgiveness seems out of the question.
Yet someone can see the sunshine after the storm and he wants to share it with Evie. But is that what Evie truly wants?
“Engrossing and compelling love story full of realistic challenges and dilemmas. A fantastic rainy day read. I couldn’t put it down!”
“An enjoyable summer romance”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Kitty Smith
“Another Summer” is not your average love triangle romance. The story is full of suspense and just unpredictable enough that you never quite knew what would happen next. Evie’s marriage with Joe has gone cold, but her husband isn’t ready to give up on it yet. His fight to get to her in Cornwall shows how much he still loves and cares for her. Meanwhile gorgeous, romantic Jake offers the hope of a new beginning. She has a tough choice to make and I didn’t know which way she’d go until the very end. Does she try to repair what she has, or call it quits and start fresh? I imagine that’s a choice we’ve all had to make at some point, which makes her situation easy to relate to.
The plot is realistic but never boring, and the pace is steady. I thought Lilley did a nice job developing the characters, making sure each one had a well rounded personality and was likable without being unrealistically perfect. There’s drama and suspense, loads of tension between the three main characters, and a nice dose of steam to heat things up. Overall I found it to be an enjoyable summer romance read, just the right length to get lost in over a lazy weekend.
About the Author
Sue Lilley lives in the north east of England, when she isn’t escaping somewhere else in her imagination. She loves a good story, especially feel-good escapism that makes you miss your stop and be late for work because you can’t put it down. Her practical exterior hides the soul of a daydreamer and compulsive people watcher. She has been writing as a hobby for years, eavesdropping on people’s conversations on the Metro for inspiration.
She’s been married to Michael, an artist and fellow creative spirit, for more years than they’re brave enough to count. They have one grown-up daughter who’s far more sensible than either of them. Another Summer is Sue’s first published novel but now that she’s forced herself out of the closet, there will be others in the near future.
