A joy to read! As Iris rediscovers life, readers will fall in love with the shore town of Silver Crest. Despite the potential to be cliched, Summer Iris is fresh with well-detailed the characters and settings. Futhremore, Iris’s relationships with her friends, daughter and love interests keep the story moving forward quickly. Quinn has managed to maintain the feel of a small town’s slow pace without the story every being slow. After devouring this novel, be sure to keep your eyes open for the next in the series.
On the morning of her fiftieth birthday, Iris feels like she’s losing her grip on life, her job, her home and her family are all in transition. So when her best friend gives her keys to a beachside cottage for the summer, Iris makes the impulsive decision to move down to the shore. There she blossoms, finding romance, friendship and a new lease on life. But will she be able to keep the glow of her summer-self when the weather turns cool again? (The Wild Rose Press, dl. $6.75)
