The Summer Getaway

Summary: AN INSTANT BESTSELLER!

“The perfect escape for readers wanting to get away.”—Booklist

“The Summer Getaway is a reflective and moving tale of family ties.”—New York Journal of Books

One woman takes the vacation of a lifetime in this poignant and heartwarming story about the threads that hold a family together from #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery.

Single mom Robyn Caldwell needs a new plan for her future.  She has always put her family first.  Now, with her kids grown, she yearns for a change. But what can she do when her daughter has become the most demanding bride ever, her son won’t even consider college, her best friend is on the brink of marital disaster and her ex is making a monumentally bad decision that could ruin everything?

Take a vacation, of course. Press reset. When her great-aunt Lillian invites her to Santa Barbara for the summer, Robyn hops on the first plane to sunny California.

But it’s hard to get away when you’re the heart of the family. One by one, everyone she loves follows her across the country. Somehow, their baggage doesn’t feel as heavy in the sun-drenched, mishmash mansion. The more time Robyn spends with free-spirited Lillian, the more possibilities she sees—for dreams, love, family. She can have everything she ever wanted, if only she can muster the courage to take a chance on herself.

Don’t miss The Boardwalk Bookshop by Susan Mallery! A heartfelt tale of friendship between three women brought together by chance who open a bookshop together on the boardwalk of the California beaches.

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’m def going to read a book that Susan Mallery writes. Some I really love, some I just like. This one was a like book.

 

What I liked:

The cover is PERFECTION. And had me super-duper anticipating reading this.

Some of the one liners that Susan Mallery used!

The ultimate tone and message of the book- you are never too old to find your HEA and if things seem too perfect, but you are getting a vibe- it’s ok to walk away.

 

Bottom line: The book was just ok to me. I had high hopes, but some of the characters/situations  detracted from my enjoyment. Still not a bad read, though.
