Book Description

Summer. It's the time when we take vacations, go swimming, and generally veg out. Many people like to find some light summer reading for the long, lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. If that's you, you've come to the right place.
This collection offers up fifteen stories by a dozen authors. Some are brief, and some are pleasant. Others are lengthy, and a couple of them are downright disturbing. They're all going to stay with you for a while.

Contains stories by: Lynne Cantwell, Deborah Carney, Alesha Cary, Shawn Inmon, Chris James, M.M. Roethig, Carla Sarett, Alan Seeger, Tabitha Ormiston-Smith, Catherine L. Vickers, Ashton-Kate Wilson and Diana Xarissa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect summer read July 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded this book for my holiday along with countless others, but I'm sure you know what it's like when you go away and plan to read...and then things don't quite work out like that. I had visions of sitting in the sun all day and getting through the hundreds of novels that had received rave reviews on Amazon, and it just didn't work like that. To begin with, the novels I started prior to this collection of short stories did nothing to gran my attention and I found myself flicking from one to the other and I just couldn't get 'into' them with a dog, child and husband biting my ankles. So, I finally got to this one and it hooked me from the start. I adored the mix of stories and the fact that I could pick up and put down to read in short bursts. I fell in love with many of the writers' styles, however my favourite story has to be the one offered by Tabitha Ormiston-Smith because it had the perfect blend of humour, intrigue and mystery, a possible love angle, and a cat (with a fabulous name)....of course! I can't ever remember buying a collection of stories in one book before (apart from children's ones), but it's given me a real appreciation for the skill and art involved in combining such greats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Good Summer Stories in this Collection July 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not usually a fan of short stories but I DO love summer-themed books so decided to give this collection a try.

Great cover to begin with and the stories included are well written and original.

If you are looking for another 'beach read' to load on your kindle and particularly if you enjoy short stories, this is worth a look!

The authors did an outstanding job on these anthology short stories. Every story in this book keeps you captivated until the very end. A great novel to read sitting in your beach chair by the pool.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best short stories you will ever read June 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Carla Sarett's story alone is worth the price of admission. Brilliant, funny,heart-warming, spooky-truly entertaining.Promoting literacy for 1$ and receiving fabulous summer reads -come on- who could resist? Seriously 1$

A great collection of short stories. Many genres are inside this wonderful book. I have read stories by some new (to me) Authors. I feel there is something for everyone in this perfect beach read. I enjoyed Summer Dream greatly!

This is a must get and read book. Summer Dreams has a wonderful selection of short stories. I do believe Stranger in Paradise by Carla Sarett stands out above the others. Carla has this ability to tell a story that makes you feel like it is an actual event. She gets you from the first sentence and holds you until the last period. Well worth the price!
