♥♥♥♥

Synopsis

The island.

Meg can’t wait to get back. She’s excited to see her new mare kick up her heels in Salem’s old paddock. She’s impatient to run on country roads between breeze-blown hayfields.

Mostly, Meg longs to be back with Jared again.

It’s going to be the perfect summer.

But can real life live up to Meg’s huge expectations?

When Jared makes a heart-wrenching confession, Meg has to re-evaluate everything. If perfection’s not possible, can Meg find a way to build happiness for herself?

Fans of Appaloosa Summer will welcome the return to familiar places and characters, with the chance to be captivated by more of the beauty, romance, and dreaminess of Meg’s summer island life.

My thoughts

I loved this book, just like l loved the first book in the series. There is just something about Tudor’s writing style that I can’t get enough of. It’s peaceful, or maybe that’s just the laid-back island setting, but these books are so wonderful to read, so relaxing. And yet there is plenty happening. I love Meg – she seems so confident. Oh she reacts, but she also thinks. She’s not stupid nor does she creat unnecessary angst.

I was a littled worried when I started this book. Having loved the first book and Meg and Jared together so much I knew a second book would introduce drama! And Meg and Jared do face, what we might call, a few bumps. But it works. It felt like a continuation of Appaloosa Summer. I love the horse element of the Island Trilogy books. Horses are at the heart and soul of both the plot and the characters. And it’s great. Tudor obviously knows her horses, and I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that combines horses with romance better. Perfect for readers who love horses but have grown out of the multitude of tween targeted horse series.

Obviously being a trilogy we have one more book to go in this series. I’m looking forward to reading what happens next in Meg’s story.

The author provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
