Summer in San Remo is one of those stories that is a gem to read no matter what time of the year you discover it. You could call Cassie and Jake’s story many things. A second chance romance, a mystery, a delightful romp across some of the most beautiful parts of the world… or you could simply call it a great story, all those would be correct.
With mysteries to solve, a love to rekindle and an ex-boyfriend to bring to justice, Summer in San Remo provides a bit of several key elements to make this romance one that will keep your attention, enjoy a likable couple and do a bit of armchair travel to the beautiful San Remo. Hard to ask for more than that. This was my first time reading Evonne Wareham’s works and I certainly enjoyed what she provided in this story. Enough so that I’m now on a search for her other stories – I love a good mystery-thriller along with my romances. If you’re in the mood for a really good romance to take you to exotic places along with a couple that will touch your heart – then this is the story for you. I’d highly recommend it and look forward to another story in this series.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
Cassie now runs a quite successful concierge-business but they are having trouble after an ex-employee (and her boyfriend) has run off with a big chunk of money. So when she gets a well-paying gig (although a bit shady) she needs someone to act as her husband and what she gets is Jake...
Jake has temporarily taken over his mother's detective agency and is willing to fulfill husband-duty for a price: half the money.
The story evolves when Jake and Cassie decide to go sleuthing and travel to San Remo, following some leads. There, in a lovely villa and pretending to be on their honeymoon, old feelings resurface.
I quite enjoyed the story. Even when the story is light and a beach read, it is nicely done and easy to read. I did think there were some strange coincidences, but it did not take away from the story and the setting was lovely. It gave me a warm and romantic feeling (and a wish to travel to San Remo!).
I want to thank Choc Lit and Netgalley for my ARC. This is my voluntary and honest review.
Easy? Not when Cassie’s partner, Benita, arranges for Cassie’s “husband” to be one of Cassie’s childhood sweethearts: lovely, charming Jake. Cassie’s not happy but Jake seems to be delighted. He’s the perfect hero, but will Cassie see that?
This is a lovely light sun-shiny read which takes the reader on a journey to Nice and across the border to San Remo. It’s atmospheric, giving a good sense of place, and it kept me guessing right to the end (is Cassie’s client just who he says he is?). So while I was playing the sleuth, trying to find the answer before the end, I also felt I was soaking up the sun in San Remo, having a flutter in the casino and then heading to France to enjoy moules et frites on the beautiful Riviera.
Enter Cassie's old flame, Jake, now a multimillionaire, who finagles a way to escort Cassie in her mission to deliver the envelope. Things take a funny turn and it ends up with the two of them seeking out the illusive man that engaged Cassie. There is a lot of humor in the telling of this story and I laughed out loud often. Thoroughly enjoyable!
I thought this was the perfect summer beach read – it was light, entertaining, and a quick read.
I was provided a free advance copy of this book in return for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would personally recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great summer read.
