Sintesi dell'editore

Neggers (The Whisper) spins a tale of stolen jewels, long-lost love, and other secrets in this engaging contemporary romance. Olivia Frost has returned to Knights Bridge, Mass., to turn a historic home into a getaway destination. A neighboring house is in disarray, so Olivia writes to the owner, Dylan McCaffrey, asking him to clean it up. Dylan has no idea his late father left him the property until he gets Olivia’s note. Curious, he travels to Knights Bridge, where he and Olivia hit it off.

Soon they are digging into the past, trying to find out why Dylan’s father bought the house and what secrets its previous owner might have had. Lovely descriptions of the countryside add plenty of New England charm, but the romance between Olivia and Dylan is overshadowed by the more interesting flashbacks, secrets, and experiences of a secondary character.

Nice romance-lite/mystery-lite.

I listened to this while I packed my house up for a move and cleaned my carpets. It was a nice, relaxing listen for boring chores like those. This is a nice romance-lite with a fun mystery. Olivia relocates from Boston to her very small hometown and starts up a new business from scratch. There is a ton of mystery and intrigue with regard to Olivia's next door neighbor and his run-down, seemingly abandoned property. Things begin to very slowly make sense once Dylan shows up to take care of his property. The story doesn't focus only on the romantic relationship between Olivia and Dylan; there are several relationships that are introduced and developed here-mostly family. There is no angst or big drama-just very easy listening. The setting is a real place, and bits and pieces of this story reflect the true history of that area, which make this story even more fun and fascinating. I'm excited that the next book features Noah, as he was one of the more interesting secondary characters!

This story is packed with life experience.

An 80 odd years secret, kept hidden from a small town community. An inheritance that was not known about, until another asks to have a yard cleaned up. A woman who is disillusioned with her job and colleagues, takes a step to start up a dream job. A family concerned with the mentally stressed mother, overcompensating to keep her from stressing, learn that the mother is able to learn to let them go, and all still would be okay. There's more in this great story, but your best to read the book or or listen to the audiobook. I feel cèrtain, you will find it an entertaining experience.

Loved these characters

I enjoyed this story. The secrets were slowly revealed and the relationship slowly developed. But the story didn't seem slow at all. Quite a joy to listen to.

An interesting original story. Amen!

Really nice to find a romance with a good story and even some lightweight, positive psychological insights - fueled by a light but satisfying mystery.

Inspirational and Enjoyable

If you could sum up Secrets of the Lost Summer in three words, what would they be?

Enjoyable, Inspirational, relaxing

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Loved reading about a strong woman starting a new career. Refreshing that the love interest was not the main story. Really enjoyed all of the characters. Loved the non-violent mystery

My favorite Carla Neggers book

What made the experience of listening to Secrets of the Lost Summer the most enjoyable?

The story is wonderful. Love the history. Tons of plot twists.

Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't but am glad she is the reader on the rest of the books in this series.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes - there was a big plot twist after Dylan rescued Grace. It was pretty shocking!

Any additional comments?

I love Carla Neggers' books and this one is the best yet. I love the love story but also tremendously enjoyed learning about the history of the Quabbin Reservoir and the "disincorporation" of the towns in the Swift River Valley, particularly from the perspective of one who was displaced because of the flooding of the valley. It's a very moving, compelling book. I can't wait to listen to the other books in the series.

Good

I have read a lot of Carla Neggers books, particularly those with recurring characters. This is a stand alone book and one I have only listened to and not read first. I thoroughly enjoyed it and changed my lists of jobs to do so that I could carry on listening. Well read and easy to listen to.
