Start of My Summer Reading

One of my favorite authors Mary Kay Andrews released her new book Spring Fever just a few weeks ago. 

Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless.  They’ve been divorced for four years, she’s engaged to a new, terrific guy, and she’s ready to leave the small town where she and Mason had so much history.  She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to the beautiful, intelligent, delightful Celia.  But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is literally walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe she’s been given a second chance.  Maybe everything happens for a reason.  And maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back.  But there are secrets afoot in this small southern town.  On the peaceful surface of Hideaway Lake, Annajane discovers that the past is never really gone.  Even if there are people determined to keep Annajane from getting what she wants, happiness might be hers for the taking, and the life she once had with Mason in this sleepy lake town might be in her future.

I have read every one of her books and enjoyed each and every one of them. Blue Christmas, based around an antique store and its owner remains my favorite. 

Want a good book to read during the summer, Spring Fever is my recommendation.

I would love it if you would share your recommendation for a good read.



  1. I've not read any books by that author before - must look out for them.

  2. No reading for me, but sounds like a good time to sip some tea, sit on the porch and read a good book. Enjoy!

  3. I really enjoyed, Blue Christmas, too!!

  4. I have never heard of this author. I hope you enjoy your summer reading! That reminds me, I have three books due at the library!

  5. I'm on the wait list at my library for this one. I loved Blue Christmas, too!

    My all time favorite summer read is and one of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series' books. When I had summers off (oh, the good ol' days) I used to save her most recent release for summer. I would savor each of her words and there were LOTS of them; these are thick books.

    I just finished Jonathan Kellerman's Victims. I love his thrillers.

  6. It sounds good! I'll add it to my list. I love thrifting and checking out antique stores, too.

    I'm currently reading Adriana Trigiani's The Shoemaker's Wife. (She is one of my favorite authors!) This book is no exception!

    I've just completed The Solitary Summer (the third one of Elizabeth Von Arnim's that I read in a row). E.V.A. wrote over a century ago, but her books are witting and wonderful!
