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.
Along with her feisty sidekick Pokey Bayless Riggs, Annajane Hudgens attends ex-husband Mason Bayless's wedding confident that she is over him and happy that he's moving on. She's also over their sleepy town of Passcoe, N.C., and ready to leave with tepid fianc Shane. But during the ceremony, her old feelings for Mason return, and just as she's about to tell him, Mason's daughter's sudden stomach pains cut the wedding short. Given time to sort out their feelings, Annajane and Mason confront the problems that led to their breakup, their enduring love, and their shared commitment to the family business, a soda company called Quixie that is being targeted for a takeover by hostile members of Mason's family. Mason and Annajane must reconcile themselves to their rekindled love, save Quixie, and overcome their past. Though unmemorable, Andrew's latest (after Summer Rental) is an enjoyable escape.
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...
