Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jill Barnett sweeps readers away to the sultry California coast in a profoundly moving story about the power of forgiveness.

One fateful night, a deadly accident at a Los Angeles intersection changes the lives and fortunes of three innocent women - Kathryn, Laurel, and Julia Peyton - destined to be caught in a tangled web of obsession, revenge, and unruly passion. Wealthy California oil magnate Victor Banning also lost his son and daughter-in-law that night, an accident caused by his own selfish actions and dark secrets. Afterward, Victor aspires to raise their sons, Jud and Cale, to be just like him: hungry predators in a dog-eat-dog world.... Until, years later, everything changes when they meet Laurel Peyton.

Spanning 30 years and three generations of Peyton women and Banning men, The Days of Summer follows both deeply affected families as they recover from the emotional heartbreak of tragedy and loss - only to cross paths once again in the most unexpected of ways. Provocative and lyrical, it explores the depth of blood ties, the mistakes we make in the name of love, and our ability to hope, forgive, and find the courage to change.

A bad narrator CAN ruin a good story!

Would you try another book from Jill Barnett and/or Erin Novotny?

Author, yes. Narrator, NO

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Days of Summer?

When the narrator made mistakes and they just kept rolling tape and never even corrected the audio! They left it in! Seems worse than a typo because it's OUT LOUD!

Would you be willing to try another one of Erin Novotny’s performances?

NO - I can't imagine what kind of book she would be suited for

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A different narrator

Any additional comments?

Narrator ruined a perfectly good story for me - it was just too annoyingly distracting!
