    A little bit rugged, a little bit beachy, a little bit stuck in time (no wi-fi?!?), the setting of Three Sisters Island is incredibly charming!!

    I was completely stunned by a plot twist and found myself wiping away tears of many, many different emotions from my eyes. I can’t wait to see where this series goes as the Grayson family adjusts to their new lives on the island!

    What a wonderful addition to Suzanne Woods Fisher’s collection! I absolutely cannot wait for the rest of this series!!

    ON A SUMMER TIDE is not the first book I've read by Suzanne Woods Fisher and it won't be the last. She has a way of grabbing her readers and she never lets us go and now I'm kicking myself for not making time to read all of her books! ON A SUMMER TIDE is the first book In the Three Sisters Island series. Camden Grayson thinks her father has lost his mind after he buys an island off the coast of Maine. It is the island where he met his wife, at a summer camp. His wife has passed away and he lets his three daughters know that he is selling the family home and moving to the island. All three sisters join him there and are shocked at the condition of the camp. It hasn't been used for years and it is very neglected. All the sisters think this island camp is going to be a nightmare to renovate. Such a fun story!

    Besides the condition of the camp, all three sisters are going through their own problems. Cam just got to the island and her boss tells her she is needed in England for her job. Maddie is a therapist and worries about everything and makes everyone else nuts with her concerns. Blaine has been in college so long that she could make a career of it instead of majoring in one subject! She has been there for so long that the college tells her it's time to leave! ON A SUMMER TIDE introduces the reader to a town suffering from a downturn in the economy and the three sisters who at first are at each other's throats, but who eventually come to understand each other. Can they come together and help their dad get the camp up and running?

    ON A SUMMER TIDE is filled with forgiveness, family, and love and had me staying up way too late one night to finish! I had to know where Suzanne Woods Fisher was taking us and what would happen to this family. There is so much heart in Suzanne's writing that I was left with a huge smile on my face and my heart very happy. All of the characters are very interesting and believable, so much so that I felt as if I've known them for a long time. Now I need to figure out how to fit more of Suzanne's books into my reading plans! I can totally see ON A SUMMER TIDE becoming a Hallmark movie that I would love to watch. I loved watching the sisters grow and come into their own. I have two sisters of my own and we used to fight like cats and dogs until one day, we didn't. Haha if you have sisters you know what I mean. The secondary characters are just as important as the main family and you will come to love them all.

    After a bout of laryngitis, sports announcer Paul Grayson is left without his distinctive voice. In a drastic career move, he decides to buy a summer camp on an island off Maine, sight unseen. The camp held special memories for him because it was where he first laid eyes on his future wife. But his three now grown daughters are less enchanted, especially after they see the rundown and deplorable condition of the camp. Even Cam’s young adopted son Cooper is anxious about the state of things. But

    After a bout of laryngitis, sports announcer Paul Grayson is left without his distinctive voice. In a drastic career move, he decides to buy a summer camp on an island off Maine, sight unseen. The camp held special memories for him because it was where he first laid eyes on his future wife. But his three now grown daughters are less enchanted, especially after they see the rundown and deplorable condition of the camp. Even Cam’s young adopted son Cooper is anxious about the state of things. But Paul has enough optimism for all of them and then some. The daughters are having some career problems of their own: Cam is too focused on work, sometimes leaving Cooper in the care of her sisters; Maddie, being a therapist, is worried about everything, and Blaine is trying to make a career out of going to school instead of majoring in one usubject. They have a hard enough time getting along, but now they are in a rundown camp, in a very small town that has its own problems. For the past year, the lobsters have disappeared and the fishermen can’t make a living. The town is suffering from a major downturn in its ecomony, with the town unable to provide much in the way of services. There are problems galore, and how the sisters, and the town, cope makes for some very entertaining reading. The author does a fantastic job of balancing the introduction to the series with a fascinating story, part informative and part mystery, and adding in the right amount of religious statements so that the whole story rings true in a cohesive manner. Characters that are wonderful and well developed are placed in a story that is well thought-out and well-written, and the result is a great start to a most promising series.

    What an interesting story. I really felt as if I was on Three Sisters Island and experiencing the quirky characters and inconveniences of island life in far northern Maine.

    While this story does have its focus on the oldest sister, Camden, I enjoyed that her father and two sisters also had many sections of the book written from their points of view. It was interesting to see how each individual person viewed the family dynamics and their place in the family, while also reading about how others vi

    The romance was naturally built with a gentle progression that made sense for the story. I loved the various twists and turns that arose. These characters definitely have flaws and issues that have molded them into the people that they are in this book. It will be interesting to see how they grow and change emotionally in future novels. I enjoyed this story a lot.

    I should become the next Sherlock Holmes......or maybe I have read one too many books. Either way I saw something coming from a mile away even when there were no hints what so ever!

    This book was truly a masterpiece. The theme of forgiveness really stuck out to me and I loved it!! Both as a Believer and just the person I am, forgiveness is a HUGE thing in my life. Forgiveness to me is one of the most important things in life, so I was super happy to see that theme weaved into this story. Also the

Forgiveness to me is one of the most important things in life, so I was super happy to see that theme weaved into this story. Also they mentioned Crowder's song, Forgiven, which is one of my all time favorite songs of all time!!

    The characters were also something that made me love this book so much. Seth, Cam, Peg, and Cooper were some of my faves but I also loved all the other characters!

    The sibling relationship in this book was on point. Being the oldest of 5 girls, I know how hard it is at times. I know that my sisters and I fight all the time, but we all love each other and are are a pack of wolves if you hurt one of us. ;)

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I cannot wait to finish the series!!

    Suzanne Woods Fisher is a masterful storyteller, skilled at creating characters so real that they could live in my community. On a Summer Tide takes us into the realm of contemporary fiction, and while the genre might be different from Fisher’s popular Amish fiction, her ability to explore complex characters and relationships doesn’t change. I was caught up from the first page and loved every minute spent in reading this story.

I was caught up from the first page and loved every minute spent in reading this story.

    I’ve always been drawn to the New England area, so the setting of an island off the coast of Maine couldn’t be more appealing. Fisher’s words paint such strong visual images that you can almost feel the ocean breezes and smell the salty air.

    The story involves the Grayson family, father and three daughters, with fractured relationships. The daughters are appalled when their dad sells his home and buys Three Sisters Island, and I’m not sure I would have felt differently. But the beauty comes as layer after layer is peeled back and healing begins to take effect. I loved this family! Some of the island people are quirky, as one would expect, but so are the daughters – such as Blaine, who gained a wealth of knowledge by exploring different college majors without ever committing to one.

    The main focus is on Camden and seven-year-old Cooper, but we get to know the whole family as backgrounds and family dynamics are explored. There’s much delightful humor, a surprising twist, and some wonderful secondary characters, such as school teacher Seth and the adorable Peg Legg, who runs a diner.

    I loved On a Summer Tide and can’t wait for the next book in this series.

    Highly recommended.

    While I've been reading this author's Amish books for years and enjoying them immensely it was great to change up the pace and read a contemporary by her. She made the transition with ease too. This book was just as good as her Amish books. Three sisters who have very different personalities and don't always get along the best are totally taken off guard when their aging father buys an island.

    While I've been reading this author's Amish books for years and enjoying them immensely it was great to change up the pace and read a contemporary by her. She made the transition with ease too. This book was just as good as her Amish books. Three sisters who have very different personalities and don't always get along the best are totally taken off guard when their aging father buys an island. Thinking he's lost his marbles they aren't sure how to proceed with this discovery of his purchase. In a way the book has a melancholy ring to it because this is where the father met his wife back when they were young and she has since passed away.

    The daughters are all adults and have different things going on in their lives, important things and we see how they try to assimilate themselves to life on the island. It works better for some than others.

    The island lifers sure don't make things easy for these newcomers, can they really trust them?

    From the descriptions in the book I can picture myself there with this family and it sounds so peaceful. This is just what I need to get away from it all. Some of the island regulars are a bit quirky but very endearing characters, especially Peg. What a dear she is. I also enjoyed seeing how the sisters started getting along better and I look forward to seeing their character development in future books in this series. Can't wait to read the next book in this series.

    What a lovely way to kick off the Three Sisters Island series! This book was a breath of fresh air that raised the stakes of the plot in every chapter. It’s definitely one to learn from, if you’re a writer.

    The ensemble cast was superb. Some I hated, plenty I loved, and many surprised me. I loved the idea of sisters struggling to figure out how their lives fit together to make the puzzle of their family come out right. This was totally realistic, as I know from having a sister of my own. We may not always understand each other on every aspect of our lives, but we respect each other and love each other always. I think that same concept was well represented in this book and brought a unique specialness to the story.

    Themes of family, forgiveness, faith, trust, and rebuilding a legacy were exquisitely displayed throughout. Each one was explored by multiple characters, in their own ways. That’s what made this story spectacular. Every character, including the island itself, were allowed space to breathe and be itself and react to the others. It was like watching the tide shift from low to high, how the waves crash into their neighbors until their stories become one. Very lovely indeed.

    I read very little Amish Fiction but won a Suzanne Woods Fisher novel which motivated me to read that entire Amish Fiction series. I completely enjoyed it. When I learned she had a contemporary fiction novel releasing, I was eager to read it.

    Cam, Maddie and Blaine are more apart than together. Their widowed father Paul sells the family home and buys a fixer upper former summer camp on an island. His hope is that the change in scenery and pace will bring them closer and make them all more content. The island includes some charming and not so charming characters.

    Cam's story is the focus of On a Summer Tide, which is the first in a series. She is driven toward success and has a hard time to relating to those with different goals. It was lovely to see how the slower pace of island life altered her. I look forward to Maddie and Blaine's stories in the future novels.

    My gratitude to publisher Revell for a complimentary NetGalley copy of the novel. I was not required to post a review and all opinions expressed are my own.

    The beauty of an island off the coast of Maine provides the main story in On a Summer Tide. The story centers on a widower and his three grown daughters and a grandson. The father has sold the family home after the death of his wife and purchased an island and requests his family to help restore the island’s buildings. Each member of the family struggles with internal problems, but the characters never develop, and remain flat throughout the story. Emotions begin, but never heighten.
