They had me wishing I had a sailboat of my own that I could take out and relax to the waves as the breeze blew through my hair.
Madison lost her twin brother Michael several years back. She is still trying to overcome the memories that haunt her. Filling her life with a busy schedule and a job at a veterinary clinic. She comes to the decision that to rid the nightmares she must fulfill her lost twins dreams for him. Entering the sailboat Regatta race and winning it for her brother. Madison only has a few problems, she's never sailed a boat before, her brothers boat isn't even in working condition and she hasn't a clue on exactly where to start fixing it. To top it off, she can't even swim.
Deciding that her best option is to win an auction bid of a local sail mate who's auctioning off the partnership and training for a local charity cause. The only problem, she gets pawned off and her training instructor becomes a man with a bad reputation and the one man in town she can't stand to be around, Beckett O'Reilly. With no other options and a need to fulfill her brothers dream she decides Beckett is her only choice.
As friendships begin and a budding romance emerges the nightly nightmares increase, she feels she's never been closer to overcoming her problems and never so far away at the same time. Beckett who is turning out to be nothing of what she thought, has a dark secret of his own that he has been hiding from her, one directly related to her past. Will his secrets destroy everything they have been building? Or will love find a way to overcome the past? Well you will just have to read Barefoot Summer to find out!
This is one of those books, your just going to want to go lay out under a shade tree by a lake or river and relax and enjoy. If your anything like me, you'll find yourself smiling throughout and turning the pages as fast as your eyes can read. I highly recommend Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter to any reader who enjoys a clean fun romance.
