Book Review: The Summer House by Jenny Hale


Book Review: The Summer House by Jenny Hale

The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date May 7th, 2019

Callie Weaver and her best friend, Olivia Dixon, have finally done it: put their life savings into the beach house they admired through childhood summers, on the dazzling white sand of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. They’re going to buff the salt from its windows, paint its sun-bleached sidings, and open it as a bed-and-breakfast. 

Callie’s too busy to think about her love life, but when she catches the attention of local heartthrob Luke Sullivan, his blue eyes and easy smile make it hard to say no. He’s heir to his father’s real estate empire, and the papers say he’s just another playboy. But as they laugh in the ocean waves, Callie realizes there’s more to this man than money and good looks. 

Just when true happiness seems within reach, Callie and Olivia find a diary full of secrets . . . secrets that stretch across the island and have the power to turn lives upside down. As Callie reads, she unravels a mystery that makes her heart drop through the floor. 

Will Callie and Luke be pulled apart by the storm the diary unleashes, or can true love save them?

Book Review: The Summer House by Jenny Hale

Second chance romance while renovating a beautiful beach house with your best friend. Does it get any better?

Jenny Hale – one of my new favorite authors

Can I just move into Jenny Hale’s books? First, I read Christmas Wishes & Mistletoes Kisses & really enjoyed it. Jenny’s writing gave me all the holiday feels & magic.

Well, Jenny Hale does it again with Summer House. All the beach vibes, salty air, possibilities, long days & enduring friendship are present in this book. I love Callie & Luke’s love story. This is a sweeter romance. If you’re wary of too much steam, you’re in the clear. Also, I wasn’t expecting the mystery element. For me, it made an otherwise cute love story more meaningful.


I am Really Into This book! Jenny Hale’s writing makes me feel good. I need that in my life & maybe you do too. At this point, I’ll read anything she writes.
