I have never come across a story of such true love. If you have ever had a childhood love then you will understand what Maria goes through when he returns after years of 'not knowing'. I could not put this book down! It's captivating and such a fantastic read! I can honestly put my hand on my heart and say this is one of the best romance novels i have come across since the notebook!!!!!

So if you loved 'The Notebook' by Nicolas Spark, then you will love this book!!!! A must READ!! so buy it!!!!!!!

By Lincs Reader TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Oct. 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Susan Wiggs is an American author, she's written many stand alone novels and also a couple of series. Summer By The Sea is a romance novel, no getting away from it - if you don't like a bit of love and heartbreak then don't bother. If you like a story that makes you feel good, with a cast of interesting characters and a dollop of Italian food thrown in, then this one will suit you down to the ground.

Our heroine; Rosa, is the owner of a succesful Italian restaurant in a small coastal US town. Her restaurant has been voted the best place to propose for a few years now and it is the perfect setting for romantic couples. Rosa's food is legendary, Italian and learnt at her mother's knee. The only thing missing in Rosa's life is a romance of her own. She's been single since her childhood sweet heart Alex up and left her ten years ago. But now he's back in town. Rosa is determined not to let him back into her life, he's from an upper-class family, she's a small town girl who didn't even go to college. Alex thinks differently, he's changed over the years and wants to make amends.

This is great writing, easy to read, light but not fluffy - there is a bit of a mystery in the story too and the added bonus of gorgeous sounding recipes from Rosa's kitchen at the beginning of each chapter.
