As the summer ends, friendship begins…
When single mom Joy Lee abandoned her old life to take a job at a lakeside resort, she found something that her family’s wealth and influence could never buy: peace of mind. Not easy to come by for the once-burned divorcée who keeps everyone at a distance. But when her new friend, Maris, dares her to take a chance with the drive-in’s charismatic new owner, everything changes for Joy and her young son.
A difficult childhood has left Maris Kennedy with definite priorities. Her job running Summer’s End, the camp store and café, comes first. Always. Nothing could ever make her risk that hard-won security—especially not her free-spirited colleague. But the more she encourages Joy to open herself up to new experiences, the more Maris begins to wonder what she, too, might be missing.
Learning how to trust will bring Joy and Maris together. And soon they form a friendship that leaves them as close as sisters—and open to love where they least expect it…in Summer’s End.

This was a feel good story from the start. Joy and Royce were engaging however Jack stole the heart of the story. I loved seeing Joy and Maris become good friends and Joy opening herself up to the family that she had created. It was obvious from the first meeting that Jack and Royce were gong to be the best of buddies and I was not disappointed in that relationship and how it evolved. Chaos and Jack were so heart warming. I loved how Daron broke down Maris's defenses and also showed her the world around her with different eyes. This was a family that cared and protected each other. This is a great story!!
Love this series!!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I loved visiting Cooper’s Charm again. Joy Lee has been building a life with her son Jack determined to make it on her own. Little did she know meeting Royce Nakirk the new owner of the drive-in would change both of their lives for the better. We also got a litter of Maria and Daron’s story so double the pleasure! Lori Foster doesn’t disappoint. I can’t wait for more from this series!!
