Summerhaven by Tiffany Odekirk

Five stars

Hannah Kent and Oliver Jennings pledged their hearts to each other as children. Now, years later, Hannah is thrilled to receive an invitation to spend the summer at Oliver’s family’s country estate. The path to wedded bliss is clear—so long as Oliver’s highbrow older brother, Damon, has ceased his juvenile antics, Hannah’s future looks bright indeed.

But from the moment Hannah arrives at Summerhaven, nothing is as she expected. Oliver seems disinterested in renewing their acquaintance, and Damon is not the brutish boy she remembers but a man intent on avoiding marriage. Although she has loathed Damon her whole life, when he contrives a ruse designed to win them both what they desire, Hannah warily agrees. All she has to do to reclaim Oliver’s attention is pretend to be madly in love with Damon. But when Damon is surprisingly convincing in his role as a suitor, it proves difficult to discern the line between pretense and true love.

This book was one of the sweetest stories that I’ve read in a while! It’s been on my tbr for quite some time now but I hadn’t found the time to pick it up yet. Well, one of my goals this month has been to read any book that I’m in the mood for and not solely those that I feel obligated to read.

So this was one of those books.

I pulled it off my sisters shelf and knew I had to read it now. So I did. And I’m so glad I did! It instantly captured my attention with its beautiful writing and equally beautiful story. All of it was amazing! The characters were incredible and I loved each and every one so much. Even the ones that I thought I would end up hating, I still love after finishing the book.

It gave me a Jane Austen vibe that I absolutely adored. It wasn’t your typical romance in my opinion, it was so much sweeter! I really can’t stop saying how sweet this book was. You need to read it. If you love sweet characters, fun banter, and a delightful yet tragic romance, you will love this book. I highly recommend it!

Your turn!

Do you read romance books? Have you ever read/enjoyed a Jane Austen novel? What’s your favorite historical fiction?

Blessings, Allyson

  1. I’m really glad you enjoyed this one! I loved it too! It definitely gave me Jane Austen vibes. If you liked this one, I think you would like Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson if you haven’t read it already. It’s also a regency romance that reminded me of a Jane Austen book.☺️
