The book opens three years later with Andrew, the man who owns the house that Eric had been staying in in "Beach House," who attends his 20 year high school reunion to meet up with his high school girlfriend, Cheryl. They attempt to rekindle their relationship.
June finds Kelly, a young lawyer, staying at the beach house to attend a class at the local university. Just getting off a bad relationship, she is drawn to Matt, the man teaching the class. She must come to a decision about whether her priority is her personal or professional life.
In July, a man and wife and their ten year old son stay at the beach house. The family has recently experienced the death of their infant daughter and befriend some special people who help them overcome this tragedy.
In August, Cheryl, who is a social worker, returns to the beach house with three teenage girls who she has brought in hopes that being outside of their urban lifestyles will be inspiring for them. She challenges Andrew to accept the girls; if he does, she knows a relationship between the two of them is possible.
This book is terrific because it ties up the loose ends left from the "Beach House". We learn what has transpired in the past three years between Julia and Eric, we meet up again with Chris Saddler- average teenaged boy turned Hollywood star, and we even hear again about Joe and Maggie.
"The Beach House" brought tears to my eyes, and "Another Summer" is equally touching. The characters are believable, with real-life problems. I hope that Bockoven will come out with another book to add to this series! I can't wait to read some of her other books!
If you like this book, I would suggest books by Nicholas Sparks, Kirk Martin, and Mary Alice Monroe.
May. Back in high school twenty years ago, Andrew Wells broke Cheryl Cunningham's heart. Now he desperately wants a second chance with the woman he always has loved, but can Cheryl trust him not to break her heart again?
June. Marine biologist Matt Landy provides a talk attended by attorney Kelly Anderson, who looks for an edge in an upcoming court case involving the scientist. However, her attraction to Matt leaves Kelly wondering if her personal feelings might cause a professional conflict of interest?
July. The death of their child Angela destroyed the Davis family's joy in life. Craig and Ann and their other child Jeremy desperately need healing, but unless a miracle occurs, the Davis relationship seems near an end.
August. Cheryl brings three Oakland teenage girls with her when she returns to the house to join Andrew. If he accepts her charges and still wants the complete her after a month of inner city chaperones, Cheryl knows that she and Andrew can share both their lives.
ANOTHER SUMMER, the sequel to THE BEACH HOUSE, is a warm anthology that fans of contemporary romances starring strong characters will enjoy. Each story is fun to read, as the audience will appreciate Georgia Bockoven's fine work.
