Goodreads:  Flight attendant Summer Benson lives by two rules: Don’t stay with the same man for too long and never stay in one place. She’s about to break rule number one by considering accepting her boyfriend’s proposal—then disaster strikes and her world is shattered in an instant.

Summer heads to Black Dog Bay, where the locals welcome her. Even Hattie Huntington, the town’s oldest, richest, and meanest resident, likes her enough to give her a job. Then there’s Dutch Jansen, the rugged, stoic mayor, who’s the opposite of her type. She probably shouldn't be kissing him. She definitely shouldn't be falling in love.

After a lifetime of globe-trotting, Summer has finally found a home. But Hattie has old scores to settle and a hidden agenda for her newest employee. Summer finds herself faced with an impossible choice: Leave Black Dog Bay behind forever, or stay with the ones she loves and cost them everything...

Kritters Thoughts:  Summer is a flight attendant and a function of her job is to always be on the go.  She has never really put down roots and after a tragic accident and a relationship misstep she wants to find a place to heal and decide where the next place will be.  On a funny whim she ends up in Delaware in a community that is known for being a haven for recent breakup victims.

From the very beginning, I loved Summer, she was a fantastic character that was enjoying life when she was sent a curveball and instead of wallowing, she picked up and did something about it.  I love how she made an impression on the town, just as much as the town made an impression on her.  It was easy to root for here, which made the book perfectly sweet.  

I read this book right before I headed to a weekend beach trip and I am actually disappointed that I didn't save it for a day at the beach - I would add this one to your beach bag immediately.

Rating: perfect beach read
