This book demands to be accompanied by a beach towel, a lounge chair, plenty of sunshine, and hopefully some sort of body of water. I say that even though half the book is set during the fall and winter. There is just something about Lori Foster’s latest series about an RV camp in Ohio that encourages thoughts of summer days and good friends. I adored the first book in the series, COOPER’S CHARM, and was super excited to be back in that world.
Like COOPER’S CHARM, SISTERS OF SUMMER’S END follows two separate romances connected by the heroines. In SoSE, Joy, a single mom, and Maris, a hard working shop owner, make the conscious decision to support each other and become friends. I loved this plot point. Not only does Ms. Foster highlight healthy romantic relationships, but she also features strong, adult, female friendships. I enjoyed hearing about Joy and Maris beginning to depend on each other as much as I enjoyed the romantic relationships.
This book was a delight to read, and I love that Lori Foster hasn’t allowed a change in romance structure to stop her from writing fun and realistic sex scenes. Each love scene was essential to the characters’ relationships and development.
I did knock off one star because Maris’ love story wasn’t nearly as compelling as Joy’s, but I still thoroughly enjoyed the book as a whole.
Overall, I really hope Lori Foster continues to put out books in this style. I feel like Ms. Foster is treating me to double the romance with a dash of female friendships, and I love it.
