Publisher's Summary

Joelle Gordon is leaving Chicago and her cheating husband to head for her hometown of Landon, Minnesota. There, she returns to the Shore Leave Café, the lakeside diner the Davis women have run for decades. Joelle's family, including her three teenaged daughters, Camille, Tish, and Ruthann, is made up of strong women who have long believed in a curse upon them - a curse that robs them of the men they love. This summer has plenty in store for Joelle. Finding herself confronted with the reality of single motherhood, the last thing she expects is gorgeous, passionate Blythe Tilson, a summer employee at Shore Leave, with an uncertain past. Can Joelle resist the temptation of a younger man, and does she dare to consider loving someone again, or will the Davis family curse prove all too true? A story about heartbreak, blame, family, destiny, and the difficulties of returning home, Summer at the Shore Leave Café is the first book in the Shore Leave series.

great summer

An interesting story where we get to go along and glimpse into a few months of Joelle's life after her heartbreak caused by her DB of a husband, spent in her family's loving circle, she steals a few moments happiness with Blythe. I was a bit disappointed, even though I understand why, she kept doubting herself until was almost to late. I hope she gets the HEA in the end. Loved the women in her family, their strong love and support for each other.
An enjoyable read made really good listening to Ms. Soudek's voice telling it. My first listen from her, she gives each character their own voices and her narrative is easy on the ear, her voice has a soothing quality I enjoyed. I am looking forward to more.
