✱✱Book Review✱✱ Summer at Lake Haven by RaeAnne Thayne

Summer at Lake Haven: A Novel Haven Point Book 11
by RaeAnne Thayne 

A lakeside summer, a new beginning…

Samantha Fremont has been struggling with the weight of her mother’s expectations for years. But now that her mother has passed away, it’s time for Sam to be bold and finally establish the fashion design business she’s always dreamed of. And the perfect opportunity has fallen into her lap. Her friend’s getting married and has asked Sam to create her wedding dress…if only she can avoid the bride’s infuriating brother, who’s temporarily the boy next door.

Ian Summerhill knows a sabbatical in Haven Point is exactly what he and his children need to recover from their mother’s death. His romantic relationship with his ex-wife may have ended years ago, but caring for her throughout her illness broke his heart. All he wants is to watch his little sister walk down the aisle and to see his kids smile again. And somehow his lovely new neighbor is instrumental in both. But as their uneasy truce blossoms into a genuine friendship and more, Ian has obligations in England he can’t ignore—and a secret that threatens the fragile trust he and Sam have built.

Momma Says: 3 stars ⭐⭐⭐

Summer at Lake Haven is a sweet story that is great for a relaxing day by the pool. The romance felt a little bit rushed to me, but I did like the characters and since I'm a sucker for a single dad story with or without the romance, I settled in and just enjoyed the read. As I understand it, this one finishes up the Haven Point series, and I'll just add that even though I haven't read the whole series, I had no problem with any part of this one, so it does work as a standalone, in my opinion. The book is well written, the characters are likable and interesting, and the storyline was good, so even though I felt like the romance lacked a bit of depth, it was still worth the read.
