Summer by the Tides Reviews

    If you are looking for a great summer beach story, Summer by the Tides is one I can definitely recommend. The two main characters, Maddy Monroe and Connor Sullivan, were ones I instantly cared about.

    This book has it all: great beach scenery, strained relationships between three sisters, issues that must be resolved, a hint of mystery regarding the grandmother’s whereabouts, a heroine who has a problem with trust, and a handsome widower who really needs a happily-ever-after. There is truly a wond

    This book has it all: great beach scenery, strained relationships between three sisters, issues that must be resolved, a hint of mystery regarding the grandmother’s whereabouts, a heroine who has a problem with trust, and a handsome widower who really needs a happily-ever-after. There is truly a wonderful balance of all of these issues within the pages.

    I enjoyed the flashbacks that appeared throughout the book, highlighting how and when things went wrong for this family. And the romance that was woven into the present day timeline was just perfect. I was really rooting for Connor and Maddy to have a future together. I highly recommend it!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    Denise Hunter consistently puts out amazing love stories. She is one of my favorite authors.

    Oh Maddy and Connor. I loved this book from page one until the last page. I always hate to start a book by Hunter because I know that I'm going to read it in one sitting then have to wait for ever for her next book. You are going to love this book of love, forgiveness and family. I HIGHLY recommend this 5 star book!

    'She'd left God in the dust quite some time ago.'

    Maddy is left reeling from an especially vicious betrayal, both professional and emotional when she is called back to her grandmother's house in Sea Haven, NC. It seems her grandmother is missing and no one has any clue as to where she is. Her grandmother's neighbor, Connor Sullivan, has called Maddy and her two sisters, Emma and Nora and when they converge on the old house, emotions run rampant between Emma and Nora from old hurts and betrayals.

    'She'd left God in the dust quite some time ago.'

    Maddy is left reeling from an especially vicious betrayal, both professional and emotional when she is called back to her grandmother's house in Sea Haven, NC. It seems her grandmother is missing and no one has any clue as to where she is. Her grandmother's neighbor, Connor Sullivan, has called Maddy and her two sisters, Emma and Nora and when they converge on the old house, emotions run rampant between Emma and Nora from old hurts and betrayals.

    The sisters get busy packing up family belongings in their grandmother's home, and recall the good times they had their each summer as children. But there are many secrets in this family, secrets and betrayals that threaten their hearts. Tensions are high as jealousy, resentment and pain come against this family. Will they ever be able to put aside the past and be close again? Or will they just give in to defeat and go their separate ways?

    Meanwhile, Connor Sullivan is beginning to have feelings for Maddy as she is for him. But Maddy is bound and determined never to love again after her most recent break up. After all, if you hide your heart, it can't get hurt. Right? Maybe not.

    Denise Hunter has long been a favorite of mine and I never fail to enjoy her books. She knows how to dig right into the reader's heart and pull them into the story completely. Even her secondary characters are meaningful and good to know. She weaves the spiritual theme throughout this story, while capturing the complete emotional make up of her characters. This one moved me deeply and I found myself crying several times. Well done! I highly recommend Summer By The Tides.

    Recommend to any reader who likes a good family drama with romance. Set on the beautiful Carolina coast in a little beach town. Perfect setting for a summer romance.

    A trio of estranged sisters is brought back to the last place they were together as a family, and the place that blew them apart.

    Loved Conner. Great all around guy. I want to go sailing now and have picnics on deserted islands. This author is one of my favorites for contemporary Christian fiction.

    Summer by the Tides is the perfect summer read! While it is an easy, beach read it also has a great storyline and I felt for the characters deeply.

    I loved how each of the sisters had something they were going through that the others didn't know. There were some bitter feelings from the past and it made for tension which made the ending even better. I also loved the romance; Connor was a wonderful hero and it was sweet to see their relationship grow.

    Summer by the Tides is one of my new favorite Denise Hunter novels. A perfect blend of family, faith, and romance, it was everything I hope for when picking up one of Hunter’s books.

    Maddy loses her job and her boyfriend all at the same time so there is nothing holding her back from going to look in on her grandmother when she gets a call from her concerned neighbor. The concerned neighbor also called Maddy’s two estranged sisters, Nora and Emma. Nora and Emma had a falling out twenty years prior and are both still holding grudges. It makes things really uncomfortable when they all show up at their grandmother’s and then decide to stay there to help fix the place up. All the characters were pretty likable, though sometimes frustrating. The secrets that are discovered during their stay were not anything surprising – except there was an extra twist on one that I wasn’t expecting.

    I really liked the concerned neighbor, Connor. He was such a sweet and stand-up guy. I loved his relationship with his sisters. I really shipped his growing relationship with Maddy, too. He was exactly the kind of guy that Maddy needed and he was extremely patient with her skittishness. Things did get just a little too cheesy at times when it came to the romance, but I’ll take sappy over graphic any day.

    Overall, I really enjoyed Summer by the Tides. It was a cute, quick read that I flew right through. I liked the message of faith and trusting in God and felt it was incorporated really well into the characters’ lives and didn’t come off as preachy. I liked seeing Maddy and her sisters work through their issues and discover family secrets. I liked that reconciliation was shown as a process and small steps and not just a magical fix where everything is all of a sudden fine. I definitely recommend this one to Denise Hunter fans.

    Overall Rating (out of 5): 4 Stars

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this novel, Denise tends to surprise me in some way with her writing. This was a easy breezy summer read. I enjoyed the sisters and their issues because-real life. I thought the romance could have been a little better written maybe not so obvious or predictable but otherwise this was a good read.

The story line was fun and the setting made me want to go on vacation. Their is food mentioned in this book as well that made my mouth water. I would be curious to read more about the other sister's from this novel as their lives interested me more so than Maddy who is the main character in this book. If you are looking for a fresh summer read this would be a good book to pick up!
