TLC Book Tours Book Review: Summer On Mirror Lake

About Summer on Mirror Lake

Hardcover: 384 Pages
Publisher: HQN; Original edition (June 11, 2019)
Summertime is the best time to lose yourself in the romance of Honeymoon Harbor…
When he lands in the emergency room after collapsing at the funeral of a colleague and friend, Wall Street hotshot Gabriel Mannion initially rejects the diagnosis of an anxiety attack. But when warned that if he doesn’t change his adrenaline-fueled, workaholic lifestyle he could end up like his friend, Gabe reluctantly returns to his hometown of Honeymoon Harbor to regroup.
As he adjusts to the sight of mountains instead of skyscrapers, Gabe discovers advantages to this small Pacific Northwest town he once couldn’t wait to escape. But it’s irresistible librarian Chelsea Prescott who, along with the two foster children she’s taken under her wing, makes slowing down seem like the best prescription ever.
Over the course of their summer romance, Gabe gets a taste of the life he might have had if he’d taken a different path. But with his return to New York City looming on the horizon, he’ll have to choose between the success he’s worked tirelessly for and a ready-made family who offers a very different, richly rewarding future…if he’ll only take the risk.

Review: I think I'm hitting all my beach reads at one time. Summer on Mirror Lake is a wonderful "summer" story.

This was a sweet small town romance with Gabe and Chelsea, but unlike some of the other small town, summer books I've read, this one was a little to long. OK, it was a lot too long. I don't mind a chunker, but this one really wasn't that, it was 384 pages, but they were very long pages.

I felt this story could have been about 300 pages and everything would have been fine and the read would still be enjoyable.

I liked the characters, but there was so much filler that made things go on longer than it needed to.

Rating: 3 flowers
