Book Review

Publisher's Note:

Sometimes love hurts--and sometimes it can heal in the most unexpected way. Camden Grayson loves her challenging career, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. "Moving on" is Cam's mantra. But there's a difference, her two sisters insist, between one who moves on . . . and one who keeps moving. Cam's full-throttle life skids to a stop when her father buys a remote island off the coast of Maine. Paul Grayson has a dream to breathe new life into the island--a dream that includes reuniting his estranged daughters. Certain Dad has lost his mind, the three sisters rush to the island. To Cam's surprise, the slow pace of island life appeals to her, along with the locals--and one in particular. Seth Walker, the scruffy island schoolteacher harbors more than a few surprises. With On a Summer Tide, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher begins a brand-new contemporary romance series that is sure to delight her fans and draw new ones.…

On a Summer Tide

by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Overall Book Review:

On a Summer Tide by Suzanne Woods Fisher is the first of the Three Sisters Island Series.  Those familiar with Fisher’s writing may be surprised to learn that this story is not about the Amish people.  It is about a modern-day family who is struggling to hold together after their mother has died.

Sisters Cam, Blaine, and Maddie are all adults who are trying to learn how to come together to help their father.  He has purchased a summer camp and is now in the process of rebuilding it.  There are lots of ups and downs in the relationships and every girl seems to have some serious issues to handle. 

The picturesque setting of a remote island off the coast of Maine will have readers wanting to go and visit.  Enjoy some romance and no-nonsense lessons learned as Cam, Blaine, and Maddie learn more about who they are and who they can become.
