In Another Summer by Rebecca Stevenson, Tracy lives and works in Boston and has not taken a vacation in a very long time. When her mother suggests renting a house in the seaside village of Wentworth Cove, Maine, where she spent some time many years ago, Tracy thinks it is good idea. She arrives to find a lovely little cottage near the seaside, knowing no one and not sure how she will spend the next month. Tracy soon meets her neighbor Kate Norsworthy, Maggie, a local bookstore employee, and her sister Annie, but most importantly, the very good looking Nathan Norsworthy. While attending a fourth of July celebration, she and Nathan hit it off and soon are spending lots of time together.
Tracy enjoys exploring and when Kate takes her to the next town to buy some clothes and visit the local library, her vacation is about to change. John is the librarian and a good friend of Kate, but he seems to react strangely to Tracy, telling her he thinks he knew her mother when she was there many years ago. On the ride home, Kate explains to Tracy that John had one true love and it didn’t work out so he has remained a bachelor. When Tracy puts all of the pieces together, she becomes convinced that John must be her real father. Tracy soon realizes that the time she is spending in Maine is much more than she bargained for and has brought her love - something which she has never really looked for or found before - and family questions. The ups and downs that Tracy deals with make Another Summer so good.
Another Summer by Rebecca Stevenson is a delightful way to spend an afternoon. The romance is perfect, the touch of mystery is just right and the characters are wonderful. Rebecca Stevenson has brought the New England summer community to real life with perfect descriptions. I could almost smell the ocean. Another Summer is a good story from beginning to end with characters that quickly became my friends, and a plot that kept me reading. I highly recommend this book to all, but especially to those who enjoy a good and pure romantic story. I enjoyed this book a lot and will be looking for more books by Rebecca Stevenson.
