#BookReview: The Summer House by the Sea by Jenny Oliver

the summer houseAbout the Book

Every Summer has its own story…

For Ava Fisher, the backdrop to all her sun-drenched memories – from her first taste of chocolate-dipped churros to her very first kiss – is her grandmother’s Summerhouse in the sleepy Spanish seaside town of Mariposa.

Returning for one last summer, Ava throws herself into a project her grandmother would be proud of. Café Estrella – once the heart of the sleepy seaside village – now feels more ramshackle than rustic. Just like Ava, it seems it has lost its sparkle.

Away from the exhausting juggle of London life, Ava realises somehow her life has stopped being…happy. But being back at the Summerhouse by the sea could be the new beginning she didn’t even realise she needed…

My Review:

What a fun summer read! The first chapter really kicks this book off with a bang, and it was easy to stay engaged throughout the entire book. I loved the setting and the writing makes it easy to transport yourself right alongside Ava. The best word I could use to describe this novel would be charming and I think chick lit lovers would really enjoy this story. A great summertime read!
