Many thanks to Rachel and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this Blog Tour.
BRILLIANT! BRILLIANT!! BRILLIANT!!!
I have no idea how she does it. But author Shari Low does it every single time. A story set in 24 hours with characters whose lives intertwined in the past, bringing together the most joyous of relationships, the kind that unfurled excitement deep in me just to see how they came together in the present.
Agnetha’s kids were grown up. She was 45 now, she needed to reclaim her life. Mitchell her ex-husband who married her ex-best friend Celeste, had karma showing its effects on him. Hope was meeting her biological father Aaron for the first time. These characters were linked by a lifetime of Secrets.
Oh, how I love this author. Her words made my day brighter. Just trying to think about the various ways the characters could be linked together via their secrets made me giddy with happiness. Relationships were never beautifully portrayed as in her books. Every emotion was felt by me including betrayal and sadness. And anger.
The lives of the characters caught me in its web, and I settled right in. Nothing could have stopped me from reading it at one go. The mystery surrounding them kept me hung in the air, but that was the beauty of One Day In Summer. Each chapter brought me closer to truth, each page revealed a facet of the characters. I loved Agnetha especially. A book of feels was this.
The writing was superfluous in the story, the drama was at point without going overboard. The emotions maintained their dignity and space. I loved everything in this book. Serendipity and kismet brought this author’s works into my life; her books kept me sane during insane moments. My go-to author when I am down.
I received a ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here

Three people. Twenty-four hours. A lifetime of secrets to unravel.
