I'll be honest and say that I'm not a huge fan of this genre, but my girlfriend read it and recommended it to me. All I can say is WOW! Lauren Clark is a great writer! Levels above the typical story in this genre! The characters in this book are all very relate-able (Especially Ryan)

Without giving too much away. The plot is easy to follow, yet has it's fair share of awesome twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book, It really surprised me. I recommend this book to ANYONE! Give it a shot! You'll probably like it more than you care to let off. :P

First thoughts after...

What an amazingly sweet story! I'd like to know what happens next! ;)

How distracted did I get?

Stardust Summer is a wonderful story about grudges, forgiveness, love of family and romance. Grace has been hurt too many times and doesn't trust people not to leave her. I love her story and character. She's had a rough life and has a lot to get through emotionally. I did not want to put this story down. I was up very late one night reading this and still read while cooking and would stop cleaning to "rest" and read!

I stumbled across this novel Stardust Summer by Lauren Clark recently. Now is the perfect time to share it. This novel is on my Beach Read list of 2015. I hope it will also be on yours!
Synopsis:
Grace and Evan make their home in Mississippi, but her father and step mother live in New York. She receives an invite to a dedication of a library at her father’s university where he is the president. She is not about to go and forget the past. Then the unthinkable happens her father dies and Grace must make the trip after all to New York to deal both the death of her father and her relationship stepmother. Then there is Doctor Ryan who lets work become his life, but has a special relationship with both of Grace’s parents. Will Grace discover healing with her family and be able to let go of the past? Will Ryan be able to look beyond his work?
My Thoughts:
Lauren Clark is a favorite author of mine. I very much enjoyed this novel. The symbolism used to propel the story forward with the use of Grace’s name and the discussion of forgiveness. What does grace truly mean? How could it apply to the character Grace being open to a new future?
She really let the characters tell their stories in this novel which added depth and made the plot interesting. This novel is an easy read which will keep you flipping the pages to the end.

Grace has no intention of going to see her father and step-mother when she receives a formal invitation to a library function at the college where her father works. They’ve been estranged for a long time and she’s just fine with her quiet life in Mississippi. Her plans change when her father has a heart attack. She and her son Evan hurry to New York hoping to arrive before it’s too late. Their plan is to stay for a week or so but their visit becomes much longer for various reasons. In that time Grace will discover information about her past that could change the way she views her future. Will she be able to change her feelings with the new information? And is she willing to make a fresh start?

Dr. Ryan Gordon, Grace’s stepmother’s neighbor and friend, is at a place in his life where he finally understands the need for a life outside his practice. He shares Grace’s grief and would like to be more than a friend to her. He knows what it’s like to lose someone important so he understands, on some level, what Grace is going through. He also appreciates what is really important in life – family and good friends. Will Grace let him in and take a chance on love?

I liked this book but had to wonder about how Kathleen navigated her grief. I paused at some of the things she did in the week following her husband’s funeral. That could be just me, though. At any rate, I found Grace and Ryan’s story interesting. Lauren Clark’s novel is one I’d recommend to fans of contemporary fiction. I loved the setting – and the cover. 3.5 stars

I chose this rating because it was a well written book with a semi believable story line. The characters all had issues and the death it a father, husband and friend made them come to grips with their direction and choices in life. Kathleen the widow who needed everything in order; have who had a heart of unforgiveness and Ryan the workaholic doctor who didn't realize how some he was.
I really enjoyed the storyline and how each character grows as you read the story. Kathleen seems to be really accident prone but is that all part of the plan set in motion by forces unseen? Love grows and isn't polluted by sex, sex, sex but by relationship.

They don't realize that they need eaach other, but time and calamity have a way of making you see what's right in front of your face. Great read and romantic plot, I loved it. Very few errors in the writing. A must read for those who like love stories with out the bedroom scenes.

I've often shared that spring is my favorite season, because I feel it's a time of renewal and fresh beginnings. It's also a perfect time to self reflect and look at what's going on in our personal lives. If we see relationships that need work, focus on them, and make the changes that are necessary.

That's what I loved about Lauren Clark's new novel, STARDUST SUMMER. It spoke straight to my heart about family, forgiveness, resentments and falling in love again. From the moment I started reading her book I couldn't put it down. It spoke to situations in my own life and I'm sure I won't be alone.

Grace Mason is a single mother living a quiet life with her eight year old son, Evan in Ocean Spring, Mississippi. The father of her son is a distant memory. She lives in a small house, has a teaching job, her mother is dead and she is estranged from her father, Henry who lives on a lake house in upstate New York. She gets word from her step-mother, Kathleen that Henry has suffered a massive heart attack, after not being in contact with him for years.

By the time Grace and Evan make it to New York, Henry has passed. There's a funeral and several days for the three of them to get to know one another, sort of. That's when they realize how much they don't, but how much they need each other. Kathleen's neighbor, Dr. Ryan Gordon, is divorced and attracted to Grace and Evan looks up to him. Ryan has been helping out the Masons for years and knows all about Grace and Evan. Having a lake house is a great buffer for serious discussions and clearing up misunderstandings.

"The water is therapeutic. My dad always said there was something magic about this lake.
