Publisher's Summary

Spend a summer with three of your favorite authors!

Come to Spruce Island, off the coast of Washington, and visit Rainshadow Lodge, a rambling Victorian. Three women each spend a month there - a month that will change their lives!

Old Things by Jill Barnett

Catherine, divorced for almost a decade, returns to the lodge, where she'd spent summers while she was growing up. Now, all these years later, she encounters Michael, the love of her teenage life - and falls for him all over again!

Private Paradise by Debbie Macomber

The next month Beth shows up with her teenage son, Paul. It's their first vacation since she was widowed. She ends up sharing the place with an attractive stranger, John Livingstone, and his difficult 12-year-old, Nikki. Soon Paul and Nikki have plans for their parents....

Island Time by Susan Wiggs

Then in August architect Mitch Rutherford comes to the island, where he's joined by Rosie Galvez, who's been hired to provide an environmental report. Mitch is a workaholic on a deadline while Rosie's attitude is...relaxed. But they fall in love despite - or because of - their differences.

Awesome stories

This was such a great listen to
The first story had me laughing so hard while I was driving I almost had an accident

The second and third stories I listened to not only while driving I missed my exit but ended up in another state (the border was close to where I was going)

I think I am learning my lesson that I should not be driving and listening
Maybe 😜

Not Romance but Sex

Very disappointed. Debbie Macomber left out the story for all the sex in the book. Did not enjoy. Stopped listening after the 2nd snake. Would rather listen to Christian fiction. Do not see that sex should be the story.

Favorite author × 3

I enjoyed these stories. The narrator did an exelant job and has the ability to bring the stories to life. That in itself is an amazing gift.
Thanks ladies!!

That Summer Place

The book itself is 3 separate stories all bound together by one summer home. The first two stories were good. The 3rd story was basically guy meets girl and they fall in love. Not much to the story other than that.

Nice Distraction

I was listening to this while my mom lay dying from a stroke. Just what I needed so I didn't have to think about what was happening. It was just enough to keep my interest and not heavy or intense. Just something to keep my mind busy while I carried out the necessary chores while my mom took her last breath. I probably would not buy this title under normal circumstances but it was just the thing I needed at this time.
