Andrea Hurst’s novel, SUMMER OF SECOND CHANCES is a perfect book to curl up with during a summer day. Picture yourself on the porch featured on the cover of the book, with your four legged furry friend and you’re all set. I’m sure I can say this for all dog owners, our pets add so much to our lives and we learn about loving and caring.
Shelby, at sweet sixteen, finds herself without friends, a place to call home, and still waiting for her first kiss. At the mercy of yet another move, she’s left to spend the summer with her grandmother at Moonwater Lake. Theo, a widowed, elderly man in town suggests she start a dog-walking business. Sometimes all it takes is one bright idea and an abundance of dogs to bond two unlikely friends and show them that dreams can still come true.
Theo is grieving the precious memories of his fifty-year marriage. If not for his aging beagle, Wally, he wouldn’t have a reason to get out of bed in the morning, much less go for walks. Theo is pleasantly surprised by his awakened feelings of hope, after crossing paths with Shelby and her grandmother.
It’s turning out to be a summer of many things; a summer of healing and starting over. A summer of friendship and unconditional love that will remind Shelby, Theo, and the town of Moonwater Lake that it’s never too late for second chances.
Sweet book to read that’ll warm your heart. Readers are engaged with some nice people and of of course, the stars of the story, the lovely dogs.
