The New York Times bestselling author of Summer Rental delivers her delicious new escapist novel about small towns, old flames, and deep secrets
Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless. They've been divorced for four years, she's engaged to a new, terrific guy, and she's ready to leave the small town where she and Mason had so much history. She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to the beautiful, intelligent, delightful Celia. But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is literally walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe she's been given a second chance. Maybe everything happens for a reason. And maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back. But there are secrets afoot in this small southern town. On the peaceful surface of Hideaway Lake, Annajane discovers that the past is never really gone. Even if there are people determined to keep Annajane from getting what she wants, happiness might be hers for the taking, and the life she once had with Mason in this sleepy lake town might be in her future.
Five years after their divorce, a smalltown North Carolina man and woman find themselves thrown together and discover they still have a chemistry that can't be ignored. Mason Bayless, director of the local, family-owned soda company Quixie, and Annajane Hudgens uncover a clandestine effort to sell Quixie to a major beverage company, something that would devastate the local economy. Together they discover old secrets and deal with family jealousies and betrayals and all that close contact gives them a chance to rediscover themselves. Kathleen McInerney's narration is clear, crisp, and appealing. She ably portrays an array of characters: young and older women, children, and even men. The Southern accent she creates is effective in all its forms: soft and sweet or acerbic and cold. This entertaining, contemporary romance is perfect for light, summer listening. A St. Martin's hardcover.
Pretty good summer read
I thought it was pretty good, but not up to par with her Weezie books. I enjoyed the twist at the end - totally unexpected. I think she should write a follow up book involving the gay characters that own the motor lodge.
A Pleasure to Read!
Mary Kay Andrews has raised the bar with Spring Fever! I was captivated from the first page and never let down. The characters come alive on the page, as the story takes the reader through intriguing family drama with a twist. We go through love, heartbreak, betrayal and some delicious mystery all set in a beautifully described southern setting. Great summer vacation read...
This was the best of her books yet. Couldn't put it down... It's always sad when the story ends...
Thank You ! I really enjoyed this story...
