Book Review: The Unforgettable Summer
The warm and inviting summers of Maine with perfectly comforting temperatures can work as an amazing setting for a love story. And that’s exactly what it did for Bree and Christian. The summer break setting already gave a slight hint that with the break ending, a time will come when the lovers will have to get back to their lives. But the way the whole process and the subsequent ending unfolded was just mesmerizing. So, keep your tissue boxes ready nearby.
While staying with her grandmother in Maine during one of her summer breaks, Bree finds herself totally enamored of the active, playful, and gorgeous Christian. The summer is filled with love, romance, and what I might even call corniness but eventually, it was supposed to end. What will happen when Christian will have to go back to college and Bree will leave for another year at high school? Will it all fall apart for them or they’ll find a way back? Read to find out.
For those who read light-hearted summer romances, it is definitely a recommendation. And those who want to explore the genre, it can be a good start. The simplicity of the idea behind the story is one thing that makes it much more intriguing and appealing.
