Publisher's Summary

One day, Callie Vanetta receives devastating news… She needs a liver transplant. But her doctors warn that, in her case, the chances of finding a compatible donor aren’t good. Determined to spend whatever time she has left on her own terms, she keeps the diagnosis to herself and moves out to her late grandparents’ farm. She’s always wanted to live there. But the farm hasn’t been worked in years and she begins to fear she can’t manage it, that she’ll have to return to town.

One night, a stranger comes knocking at her door… He’s an attractive and mysterious drifter by the name of Levi McCloud, and he offers to trade work for a few nights’ shelter. Callie figures she doesn’t have anything to lose. He needs a place to stay until he can fix his motorcycle; she needs an extra pair of hands. The arrangement seems ideal until what was supposed to be temporary starts to look more and more permanent. Then she realizes she does have something to lose - her heart. And, although he doesn’t yet know it, Levi stands to lose even more.

    "Very enjoyable book"
    Where does When Summer Comes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this book. Although basically it is a love story, the story line was unique and kept my interest throughout.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brenda Novak again?

    Yes, I hope this series continues,


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Levi comes back and comes into her hospital room. I found that I had kind of been holding my breath, waiting and hoping he was going to make it in time,


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next installment.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love this series, this is the 3rd one in the series and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! I love how the author continues the stories of all of the characters in Whiskey Creek!

    "Great listen!"

    I didn't think I'd like this book and passed it over a number of times before downloading and am glad I did. Even though I'm a fan of Brenda Novak's the publisher's summary made this book sound too trite to be worth the credit. I finally capitulated and am glad I did. While heath issues are obviously present in the book they don't overpower the ultimate story and connection between Callie and Levi.

    "drawn out too much!"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the way she overly accentuated some of the words - it was actuall aggrevating in some points.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from When Summer Comes?

    not a scene, but all the extreme self reflections.

    Story
    "Nice sequel in the Whiskey Creek series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of When Summer Comes to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I think the audio edition brings life to both the book and series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of When Summer Comes?

    When and how everyone finds out about the big secret.


    What does Shannon McManus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think she is a good narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Sort of. However, I enjoyed listening to it in multiple sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    Nice sequel. Worth the money.

    "Heartfelt Story"
    Any additional comments?

    This story is about a vagrant veteran and a photographer who is deathly sick and desperately needs a liver transplant to survive. They both meet in a rather unconventional way and soon start to develop a romantic relationship. The characters from the other two books also make an appearance. Although this book was good it wasn't as good as the previous books. I look forward to reading future books from this series.

    Story
    "Eh...."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story is slow and amateurish. It feels like at 16 year old view of the world and love. Calli acts like a selfish 18 year old and so do her friends, their relationships superficial and weak. Levi is almost as bad, running off when the going gets really tough. All in all, badly written and the story line is weak with only the occasional interesting moment.


    Has When Summer Comes turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Romances are hit a miss at best. This is defiantly a miss.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She's got a very young voice and takes a teenager's tone through the narration. I often forgot that the characters are supposed to be in their late twenties not their teens.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was just glad when it was over, willing to finish it but glad when it finally reached it's cliche ending.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like superficial and bland stories this will work for you. But don't expect much, it doesn't have much to give.
