Summer's List

Life hadn't been easy for Summer Snow.

In acts of selflessness-caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother's bookstore-she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love... didn't turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something-or someone.

 Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer's past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way? With lovable characters and surprising twists, Summer's List is a simple delight.

I wanted to love this book.  From the preview I read, this had me interested but unfortunately, I was very disappointed when this was over.   At times, it was so discombobulated I gave up and took a break.
The plot was all over the place for me.  Many times it was strange and confusing.  Martin's brothers made me feel like I had dropped into a chapter of Alice in Wonderland.  They left me scratching my head, because they just didn't fit.  Martin's parents were even more of a question for me.
There was so much going on in this book - rabbit trails which were distracting and irritating.   I stuck with it and finished it, but was not impressed when I turned the last page.  I would suggest getting this from your library, before you buy it.
