Waiting On Wednesday (186)



This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of!

The Summer After You and Me
By Jennifer Salvato Doktorski 
Release Date: May 1, 2015
Summary: Sunbathing, surfing, eating funnel cake on the boardwalk—Lucy loves living on the Jersey Shore. For her, it's not just the perfect summer escape, it is home. And as a local girl, she knows not to get attached to the tourists. They breeze in over Memorial Day weekend, crowding the shore and stealing moonlit kisses, only to pack up their beach umbrellas and empty promises on Labor Day. Lucy wants more from love than a fleeting romance, even if that means keeping her distance from her summertime neighbor and crush, Connor.

Then Superstorm Sandy tears apart her barrier island, briefly bringing together a local girl like herself and a vacationer like Connor. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm. And day after day, week after week, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and broken home. Now with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, will it be a summer of fresh starts or second chances?


-------------------------------------

Yes! A summer romance! I know it may be cliche, but I love it when the locals fall for people who are just visiting for the summer. It definitely adds some more tension and drama to the relationship! This one, though, has the promise of a second chance romance and definitely sounds like an emotional read. I can't wait!

  3. This is going to be an emotional read for me since most of my family was in the direct path of Sandy. Many of them lost everything. Since then Seaside has come a long way. I'm definitely looking forward to this book. Great pick!
