About this ebook

A totally perfect and heartwarming small-town romance about new beginnings, old secrets and how home is truly where the heart is… Fans of Susan Mallery, Pamela Kelley, and Mary Alice Monroe will fall head over heels for this romantic page-turner.

Meghan Gray hasn’t returned to the golden sands of Hatteras Island since her beloved Pappy passed away ten years ago. But with her life in New York falling apart—and her dreams of becoming a successful chef going up smoke—she quits her waitress job and heads back home on a hot summer’s day, hoping she’ll find some answers there.

Packing up her belongings, and the manila envelope her grandfather left for her, she makes the nine-hour drive to the sun-drenched island. On her first night, she meets brooding Toby Meyers, whose sparkling blue eyes make her feel like coming home. Meghan is instantly drawn to the enigmatic entrepreneur, longing to know more.

Pappy’s fishing cottage is just how she remembers; a shingled bungalow on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, with two rocking chairs on the porch. As the waves crash, Meghan realizes that this house—and the special memories it holds—is all she has left. Could this be her fresh start?

When Meghan opens the faded envelope gifted by her grandpa, she finds an old photograph, along with a mysterious key. If she can find what it belongs to, she’ll unlock a family secret that has the power to change everything—one that has been hidden for decades. And it will either bring Meghan and Toby together, or break their hearts…

BLOG TOUR REVIEW Review for 'An Island Summer' by Jenny Hale. Read and reviewed via NetGalley for Jenny Hale, Bookouture publishers and Bookouture anonymous Publication date 9th June 2022. This is the second book I have read by this author. I have previously read 'The Beach House' which I would highly recommend. I was originally drawn to this book by its eye catching beaitiful cover and its intriguing synopsis and title. The synopsis stated that 'Fans of Susan Mallery, Pamela Kelley, and Mary Alice Monroe will fall head over heels for this romantic page-turner'. I am a huge fan of 'Susan Mallery' so am looking forward to seeing if this lives up to this statement. I have also previously read 'The Beach House' by Jenny Hale and loved it so if this is half as good as this was its guaranteed to be a page turner! I must admit I was also biased due to the publisher being Bookouture. I have yet to read a book published by Bookouture that I haven't enjoyed. Hopefully this won't be t
