    *3.5/5 A little dramatic at times, but beautifully written and it captures summer time so ridiculously well. This is a great book to pick up next if you loved How To Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake but you want something just a little bit lighter. ...

    ~*Review first appeared on The Bent Bookworm!*~ 5/5 stars for an adorable, realistic summer romance! I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did. But I was intrigued by the synopsis, being a small-town girl at heart myself, and while I?ve only visited Maine once it was...

    Well, if I had to sum up this book in a word, it would be: ADORABLE. I really loved the small town vibes and setting, giving me all the summer feels I was looking for. I adored ALL THE FOOD and cakes in this book (I got hungry while reading... multiple times). The romance was well-bui...

    ????? 3 stars I had a similar reading experience with The Music of What Happens since there too I found that what could have been a potentially cute love story was overshadowed by a deleterious friendship. Small Town Hearts started well enough. The main character meets a...

    set aside @ 10% I'm definitely going to pick this back up soon, but 1) the weather sucks here and this book's setting is making me grumpy and envious, and 2) I'm so not in the mood for weird melodrama in books right now :( ...

    3.5 Stars loved the concept of the small town seaside town where boy falls in love with girl. It gave me some Stars Hollow feels where everyone knows everyone, and everyone helps everyone. I really enjoyed those bits. It's the summer after graduation. The summer of change. Bab...

    This was NOT turning out to be the summer Babe was expecting. She had planned to laze her days away on the beach with her besties eating tacos, but one mistake, and she was ousted from the group. To add to her misery, her ex-girlfriend was back in town after unceremoniously cutting Bab...

    This book was cute! That?s the main word that pops into my head when I think about it. The plot line felt a little repetitive as if the main cast of characters ran in circles while trying to figure their lives out. It still held my attention enough to enjoy the light read to the e...
