The Summer That Made Us

The Summer That Made Us - Robyn Carr

Look this is marketed as chick lit and a romance and it is not for all of the characters. I mean we have someone who is convicted for murder. We have an attempted rape scene. There is a secret pregnancy (that everyone knows about) and then the woman who got pregnant didn't know the real name of the father. Well hello there random man in the story. I can guess who you are. Someone has cancer that has a grim prognosis. 

 

This book was a mess.

 

Not all of the characters were given equal weight and it was just all over the place.

 

I think I was also disappointed with the secret that was eventually shared with everyone too. It was so lackluster. And the reason for the aunts falling out was beyond stupid. I just had nothing when I got to the ending.
