Chick lit

Summer under the Stars by Catherine Ferguson

This book is available to request till the 31st of May 2019 on NetGalley

This story had a pretty great start. We have an interesting protagonist, Daisy who is grieving and looking for a break. She has her fledgling career to nurse while trying to spend quality time with her boyfriend.

The setup was strong as were most of the supporting cast, but things moved too quickly for my liking. I was more invested in the boyfriend’s family (as was Daisy, if we are being particular) and Daisy’s search for her family history than in her life and troubles. Each scene moved too quickly into another before I could get involved. It is a lighter tale with some heavier aspects and on the whole a good read. There is nothing more that I can specifically point out without spoiling some of the better parts of the book, which were the sudden introduction of plot twists. There are not too many of them but they are the foundation that the rest of the story builds on. I’d recommend this to other readers of this genre.

I received an advance copy of the book thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience.
