Publisher's summary

A Barefoot Summer is a beautiful, touching story about coming home, the importance of family, and the special place that first loves hold in our hearts. Fans of Carole Matthews, Trisha Ashley, Susan Mallery, and Susan Wiggs - and anyone looking for a perfect, feel-good summer listen will enjoy this.

Sometimes you find perfect where you least expect it...

Libby Potter has just lost the perfect job, the perfect apartment and the perfect boyfriend. Moving back to the home town that she couldn’t wait to escape when she was younger was definitely not on her to-do list. Especially as it means running into the man whose heart she broke when she left.

Pete Bennett can still make Libby’s world stop with just the sound of his voice - even ten years on. Only now, she is the last person in the world that he wants to see.

As everyone else welcomes Libby home with open arms, she realizes she’s missed that special closeness that comes from lifelong friendship. And, as Libby seeks to make amends with Pete, she begins to wonder whether she made the right choice in leaving all those years ago.

When an amazing career opportunity gives her the chance to leave again, Libby will have to decide what her version of perfect is...and where she really belongs.

A Barefoot Summer was previously published as Love Me for Me.

Critic reviews

"A perfect romance read. Full of tension and heart wrenching feelings that have you biting your lower lip in either frustration or sadness. Have a lump in your throat, a tear in your eye or giggling like a schoolgirl… Oh I really did enjoy it, I know this will be a turn to read when I need a relaxed paced read that is genuine, believable and beautiful. One to lift my mood and put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. Full of charismatic characters, family love and bonds, honesty, small town loveliness and soul mates. Reading perfection!" 5/5 (Pajama Book Girl)

"This was a delightful read. It isn’t a heavy plot so it is ideal if you are looking for something light to whisk you away to an idyllic setting and a cast of lovely characters." (Rea Book Review)

A Barefoot Summer

Truly, I loved this audiobook. She was always chasing the next best thing, but she found it in her own hometown. She was always trying for success she went to the Columbia college, but what she was missing was Pete. I am so glad that they got married, and they have a little girl who is 4 and looks like one on the way. This was such a heartfelt audiobook and I truly loved it.
