A couple of years ago, I was browsing through Goodreads as I prepared for vacation looking for a few books to put on my Kindle. I stumbled upon an author I had never read before, Mary Kay Andrews. Two of her books, Summer Rental and Spring Fever, had good reviews so I downloaded them for the flights. I’m so happy I did because I thoroughly enjoyed both of them and I’d recommend them to anyone looking for a good dose of romance and chick lit!
Ellis, Julia, and Dorie are three women in their mid-30s who have been best friends since grade school. They decide to rent a house on the Outer Banks for the month of August as a girls getaway. Throw in Ty, the good looking landlord, and Maryn, a woman on the run from her troubles, and there are twists and turns along the way.
Small southern town, old love resurfacing, long standing family business at risk of a corporate takeover – it may sound cliché for chick lit, but Spring Fever is anything but. There are twists that keep you guessing and romance that makes your heart flutter. It’s the perfect book for a couple relaxing afternoons by the pool or on the beach. I definitely enjoyed Spring Fever more than Summer Rental. I love storylines with past relationships coming back around. Maybe it’s the hopeless romantic in me, but I feel the pang of nostalgia as I read and to me, there’s nothing better!
I hope you check out both Summer Rental and Spring Fever! Mary Kay Andrews has most definitely become one of my favorite authors. In fact, one of her newer novels, The Weekenders, is on my list for the summer. I hope to share my review of that book soon! I hope you enjoy Spring Fever and Summer Rental as much as I did!
