At first I thought there were a lot of characters and I wasn't sure how they were all going to fit together but Tilly did an amazing job of weaving them all into this story. I think that ever character played an integral part in the story.
We begin the story with Harper and Shay on Silver Hill Farm. Shay is digging the foundations for some new holiday lets when he discovers a chest full of jewels and gold. Harper immediately wants nothing to do with and brings in some professionals to decide what happens to it.
I really liked Harper. She is so selfless and kind hearted. I'm not sure I would have acted as she does in this book. I was rooting so hard for her to find her happy ending.
I didn't trust Shay from the moment he appeared. There was something about him that just put me a little on edge. I couldn't put my finger on it at first but as the story progressed it became clear.
Also living at the farm is Harper's best friend Pip. I LOVED PIP! She was so straight talking and would be there for Harper no matter what. I think she was my favourite character in this book.
Francesca or Cesca as she likes to be called is very excited to look at the find from Silver Hill Farm. Her job at the museum is less than exciting and when she is asked to look into the find she barely stops to grab her coat before running out the door. Cesca was another great character. She has a love of history and is extremely passionate about it.
There are three more main characters in this book that I am going to say a few words about. First we have Allie. I felt for Allie. She does some terrible things yes but she does truly regret them. I really just wanted her life to turn around. Second we have Will. Will is Lord of Silver Hill House. He is quite the recluse and the house is crumbling to pieces. Will has taken on all the burdens of his family as his own. He thinks that the villagers tar him with the same brush as his brother so he decides to stay away. Third and finally we have Kristofer. What a delightful and unexpected character. Kristofer is extremely passionate about everything. He is one of those people that just loves life.
Tilly has captured my heart once again with the world of Cerne Hay and the surrounding area. I had tears during the epilogue it was so sweet and I just didn't want it to be over. I would love to revisit these characters. I'm not sure what story Tilly could bring me but I will really miss these characters.
Nextdoor neighbor Will lives in Silver Hill House, a dilapidated mansion in desperate need of funds. He claims the jewelry used to belong to his family, but can he present any proof? Anyone is welcome in Harper's tearooms and her kindness might make a huge difference in her grumpy neighbor's life. Cesca is still looking into the matter and has enlisted the help of a Norwegian author. Will they be able to find out the truth when they all work together? Shay isn't interested in anything but the reward and Harper is too preoccupied to see what he's doing behind her back. Allie is lonely and Shay knows exactly how to use that knowledge to his advantage. Will the discovery of the beautiful jewelry be the end of Harper's happiness and will Harper be heartbroken or is it the beginning of something better?
The Summer of Secrets is a fabulous heartwarming story. Harper is easy to love. She's cheerful, kindhearted and friendly to everyone. She cares about people so much that it sometimes makes her a little naive, but her beautiful personality is a real treat. She has a gorgeous close friendship with Pip that constantly made me smile. I loved the easy way they talk to each other and their ability to be open and honest without being hurtful. For me this was one of the most amazing parts of the book.
Cesca is an intelligent woman. She knows everything there is to know about history and it was interesting to read about her research. She starts a thorough search and does anything she can to find information. Her heart was shattered, but by helping to uncover the truth she slowly starts to heal. I enjoyed reading about both her job and private life, which are marvellously intertwined. She never gives up and I loved that she forms easy friendships with the people she's working with. It gives the book a great enthusiastic feelgood factor that I liked a lot.
Allie and her husband are struggling and she doesn't know how to solve their problems. She lives in a village where she doesn't know anybody and her husband is away from home most of the time, so she's usually by herself. A little bit of positive attention is enough for her to make a couple of grave mistakes that she can't undo. My heart ached for her and everything she has to go through. I kept hoping someone would treat her better and give her some much needed real attention. This kept me glued to the pages.
Tilly Tennant has a warm and welcoming writing style. I love the way she describes her settings. She makes them come to life in a wonderful detailed way. I also liked the way she alternates between main characters. Each of them is equally interesting and I love how the stories all come together in the end. Tilly Tennant has written such a great charming book. The Summer of Secrets is filled with intriguing twists and turns, fantastic romance and lovely entertainment that put a big smile on my face.
