Coming soon from #1 bestseller Shari Low, an emotional roller-coaster, that keeps you guessing…

One day in summer, three lives are about to change forever.

After two decades of looking after others, this is the day that Agnetha McMaster is reclaiming her life. It’s her turn, her time but will she have the courage to start again?

Ten years ago, Mitchell McMaster divorced Agnetha and married her best friend, Celeste. Now he suspects his second wife is having an affair. This is the day he’ll discover if karma has come back to bite him.

Thanks to a DNA test, this is the day that Hope McTeer will finally meet her biological father. But will the reunion bring Hope the answers that she’s looking for?

Three people. Twenty-four hours. A lifetime of secrets to unravel.

My thoughts

Told through past and present narrative, the present is set over the course of one single day with the flashbacks taking place during Aggs’ younger years.  One day in Summer weaves the stories of 3 individuals and creates a wonderful tale of love, loss, family and starting over.

I was immediately drawn into this novel and identified with Aggs in a way.  She hadn’t always lived the quiet life and I loved her back story showing what a colourful and free living young woman she had once been.  As I read on, I realised the other characters were just as likable in their own ways and I couldn’t put the book down.  As one chapter came to a close I desperately wanted to continue reading about their journey but was so conflicted as I also needed to see what was happening for the other characters.  This is definitely a one sitting novel.

The narrative alternates between Aggs, Hope and Mitchell as we experience the day through their eyes, each one confronting their pasts and learning new things.  The threads of their stories weave together beautifully and create a tale that has some real emotional moments that leave you with a lump in your throat but also had an uplifting feel.

I adore Shari’s writing style and her ability to create real characters who the reader can become invested in.  This is a great read that will leave you will all the feels.
