Blog Tour: Review of An Invincible Summer by Mariah Stewart

Author: Mariah Stewart 
Publisher: Montlake 
Publication Date: May 1, 2021

It was a lifetime ago that recently widowed Maggie Flynn was in Wyndham Beach. Now, on the occasion of her fortieth high school reunion, she returns to her hometown on the Massachusetts coast, picking up right where she left off with dear friends Lydia and Emma. But seeing Brett Crawford again stirs other emotions. Once, they were the town’s golden couple destined for one another. He shared Maggie’s dreams—and eventually, a shattering secret that drove them apart.

Buying her old family home and resettling in Wyndham Beach means a chance to start over for Maggie and her two daughters, but it also means facing her rekindled feelings for her first love and finally confronting—and embracing—the past in ways she never thought possible. Maggie won’t be alone. With her family and friends around her, she can weather this stormy turning point in her life and open her heart to the future. As for that dream shared and lost years ago? If Maggie can forgive herself, it still might come true.

An Invincible Summer follows Maggie who return to her home town for her fortieth high school reunion. As there always are in small town, there are secrets that need to be revealed and dealt with.    I think this book will be a good summer beach read for a lot of fans of this author.  For me, I found it to be just OK.  I felt like it took me forever to get through.  The first couple of chapters felt very much like an info dump and I could myself skimming.  I like Maggie well enough.  But none of the other character really stood out to me.  In the end, I felt like I had read this plot before.  As I said, I think it just wasn't for me, but I do think others will probably enjoy it.
