That Certain Summer by Irene Hannon….from Revell

That Certain Summer 

by Irene Hannon

From Revell Publishers



Karen and Val are family–yet they’re anything but close. Karen has carried the burden of responsibility for her aging mother ever since her sister left town years ago to pursue a career in theater. But Val had other reasons for moving away–as well as a secret to keep–and coming home has never been an option . . . until their mother suffers a stroke.

Reunited in their hometown, Karen and Val must grapple with past mistakes as they care for their ailing mother. When two handsome men enter the picture, the summer takes on a surprising new dimension. As their lives intersect, can each of them learn how to forgive, let go, and move on? And strengthened by the healing power of faith, might they also find the courage to love?

With her trademark compelling characters and heartwarming hope, award-winning author Irene Hannon pens an inspiring true-to-life tale of complex relationships, the search for forgiveness, and the life-changing process of finding love.


Irene Hannon knows how to write a book that captures your attention after the first word, and sticks with you well after you have finished the very last word. I love her romance suspense books, and it was interested to read a Irene Hannon romance without so much of the suspense. That Certain Summer certainly did not disappoint! The characters were very realistic and I could relate to them and their difficulties and struggles. Getting to know Karen and Val as they reunited themselves was a heartwarming experience, and I loved the romance the two found themselves involved in. The girls certainly didn’t know what was in for them when they spent this special summer together.

This is such a fun, heartwarming and interesting story to read during your summer vacation! You will enjoy this new book from one of my favorite authors, Irene Hannon. And don’t forget to look for more from Ms. Hannon in the near future!
