Blog Tour: Review of Summer by the Tides by Denise Hunter.

Author: Denise Hunter
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Date of publication: May 2019

Following a painful betrayal, Maddy Monroe’s love life is a wreck, and her restaurant career is in shambles. When her grandmother goes missing, she and her estranged sisters converge at the family beach house in Sea Haven, North Carolina. Being with uptight Nora and free-spirited Emma at the place where their family broke apart is a struggle, and undercurrents of jealousy and resentment threaten to pull the sisters under. In the midst of the storm, sparks begin to fly between Maddy and Gram’s maddening neighbor, Connor Murphy.

As the sisters pack up the family belongings, memories of idyllic, slow-paced summers are resurrected. But long-buried secrets also come to light as Maddy discovers that all was not as it appeared that last summer in Sea Haven—nor today in the seemingly perfect lives of her sisters.
As family tensions rise and Connor causes tumult in Maddy’s heart, the sisters must find a way to accept each other for the women they’ve become before the bitterness of the past destroys their hope for a future.

My thoughts;
Summer by the Tides is the latest from Denise Hunter.  It involves three estranged sisters who come back to their family summer home when their grandmother goes missing.  All three have secrets are still harboring resentments from years before.  The book mainly focuses on Maddy, who is suffering from a broken heart, and her growing friendship with neighbor Connor.  Their romance was very sweet and I loved watching their relationship grow from friends to more. The book is also deals with family secrets and how those secrets can tear a family apart.  But it is also about forgiveness and grace.  I was rooting for the sisters to find their way back to each other.

This will make a great beach read.  I highly recommend this sweet and clean summer romance.
