"The Beach House" was great, but "Another Summer" is even better! When I first began reading, I was a little disappointed because there are all new characters, and Eric and Julia are not a part of this novel. However, this book has exceeded all of my expectations!
The book opens three years later with Andrew, the man who owns the house that Eric had been staying in in "Beach House," who attends his 20 year high school reunion to meet up with his high school girlfriend, Cheryl. They attempt to rekindle their relationship.
June finds Kelly, a young lawyer, staying at the beach house to attend a class at the local university. Just getting off a bad relationship, she is drawn to Matt, the man teaching the class. She must come to a decision about whether her priority is her personal or professional life.
In July, a man and wife and their ten year old son stay at the beach house. The family has recently experienced the death of their infant daughter and befriend some special people who help them overcome this tragedy.
In August, Cheryl, who is a social worker, returns to the beach house with three teenage girls who she has brought in hopes that being outside of their urban lifestyles will be inspiring for them. She challenges Andrew to accept the girls; if he does, she knows a relationship between the two of them is possible.
This book is terrific because it ties up the loose ends left from the "Beach House". We learn what has transpired in the past three years between Julia and Eric, we meet up again with Chris Saddler- average teenaged boy turned Hollywood star, and we even hear again about Joe and Maggie.
"The Beach House" brought tears to my eyes, and "Another Summer" is equally touching. The characters are believable, with real-life problems. I hope that Bockoven will come out with another book to add to this series! I can't wait to read some of her other books!
If you like this book, I would suggest books by Nicholas Sparks, Kirk Martin, and Mary Alice Monroe.

#1 HALL OF FAMEon December 4, 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
THE BEACH HOUSE has always been a place for relationships with some ending in love while others in broken hearts. The current owners should sell the California place since they live across the continent, but Julia cannot bring herself to do so. Instead she and Eric rent the place from May through August to various people.

May. Back in high school twenty years ago, Andrew Wells broke Cheryl Cunningham's heart. Now he desperately wants a second chance with the woman he always has loved, but can Cheryl trust him not to break her heart again?

June. Marine biologist Matt Landy provides a talk attended by attorney Kelly Anderson, who looks for an edge in an upcoming court case involving the scientist. However, her attraction to Matt leaves Kelly wondering if her personal feelings might cause a professional conflict of interest?

July. The death of their child Angela destroyed the Davis family's joy in life. Craig and Ann and their other child Jeremy desperately need healing, but unless a miracle occurs, the Davis relationship seems near an end.

August. Cheryl brings three Oakland teenage girls with her when she returns to the house to join Andrew. If he accepts her charges and still wants the complete her after a month of inner city chaperones, Cheryl knows that she and Andrew can share both their lives.

ANOTHER SUMMER, the sequel to THE BEACH HOUSE, is a warm anthology that fans of contemporary romances starring strong characters will enjoy. Each story is fun to read, as the audience will appreciate Georgia Bockoven's fine work.

If you haven't read a book by Georgia Bockoven, then you are missing out. Another Summer is truly another winner and a must read for fans of Bockoven's The Beach House. And for those of you who are new to Bockoven, I highly recommend searching for her backlist. She is a not-to-be-missed writer. Can't wait for her next book.

The second in a series that centers around the occupants and owners of a beach house and its neighbors. Although Julia isn't in this book, but instead the owner of the neighbor home - Andrew is more or less the "main character" in this one, the author still provided perfect updates on Julia and most of the characters from the previous book.

Each of the new renters take a month during this book as well and they each have issues that they need to overcome and time away at a vacation home may help. I fell in love with each of the new renters and wasn't sad that the previous renters only showed up in little moments. I loved that Andrew's story took a majority of the story and he was a fantastic common thread to weave the previous book and this one together.

I am enjoying this series that takes place in the summer months of a beach house rental. Each month a new person or persons rent the house and that part of the story revolves around them. although the author is good at spinning other regulars into those months.

in this one I sort got stuck in June. it seemed to be going down an educational road and I wasn't wanting that. these are supposed to just be love stories. after June I enjoyed it more and will now take a break before book 3.

Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous! Another set of love stories from an author who has experienced the gifts of love and its true meaning. Set in my home territory, Georgia's research and attention to detail are fascinating. I'm convinced it's more than good research in these Beach House books because she has captured the unique experience of life on the Monterey peninsula, a magical environment that can change lives.

Didn't have the depth as her first Beach House novel did.

This was my first book by Georgia Bockoven. It was definitely a beach read but pleasantly entertaining.
