Review: The Forever Summer

The Forever Summer


When a DNA test reveals long-buried secrets, three generations of women reunite on Cape Cod for the homecoming of a lifetime.

Marin Bishop has always played by the rules, and it’s paid off: at twenty-eight she has a handsome fiancé, a prestigious Manhattan legal career, and the hard-won admiration of her father. But one moment of weakness leaves Marin unemployed and alone, all in a single day. Then a woman claiming to be Marin’s half-sister shows up, and it’s all Marin can do not to break down completely. Seeking escape, Marin agrees to a road trip to meet the grandmother she never knew she had. As the summer unfolds at her grandmother’s quaint beachside B&B, it becomes clear that the truth of her half-sister is just the beginning of revelations that will change Marin’s life forever.

THE FOREVER SUMMER is a delicious page-turner and a provocative exploration of what happens when our notions of love, truth, and family are put to the ultimate test.

Rating: 4-stars


The Forever Summer by Jamie Brenner is one epic emotionally rollercoaster ride. The ups and downs form this read were great. One family is packed with secrets and betrayals. Husband and wife both share similar secrets against each other and their one and only daughter. Their daughter, a grown woman in a law firm, ends up spiraling downward. Loses her job, her parents are divorcing, breaks it off with her fiancée, and her boyfriend doesn’t want her. Then to top it off she finds out she has a half-sister. Wow! The surprises in this book were many. I loved it. This writer kept my full-attention and her novel was entertaining from the get go. I was hooked. There was a lot of issues discussed in this read. However, they came out wonderful. The ending was the best part.
