The New York Times bestselling author of Summer Rental delivers her delicious new escapist novel about small towns, old flames, and deep secrets
Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless. They’ve been divorced for four years, she’s engaged to a new, terrific guy, and she’s ready to leave the small town where she and Mason had so much history. She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to the beautiful, intelligent, delightful Celia. But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is literally walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe she’s been given a second chance. Maybe everything happens for a reason. And maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back. But there are secrets afoot in this small southern town. On the peaceful surface of Hideaway Lake, Annajane discovers that the past is never really gone. Even if there are people determined to keep Annajane from getting what she wants, happiness might be hers for the taking, and the life she once had with Mason in this sleepy lake town might be in her future.
Spring Fever is one great book! Annajane is a character that you just love from the first moment, finding her independence and making changes in her life. Mason as the mail male character show so many signs of really being a good guy, and once he sees the light he steps into that role so well! The past story of Annajane, Mason and even the Quixie soft drink is really one that feels, homey and loving. I love to find those stories!
I have never wanted to reach through a book and slap a character as hard as I did Celia. That woman got under my skin from that very moment! I can only say that I am so glad she got what was coming to her. You just can't feel glad enough to see characters end the way they should in books!
This is a really great fun summer read!
