Catching Summer is a engaging second chance romance.
Summer is beginning to reemerge into life two years after the murder of her husband. Evan is the brother of a good friend and has been waiting in the wings for her.
The romance between Summer and Evan seemed to happen a little too quickly for me. The thing that made it work for me is that they have been friends for a while and their social circle are pretty entwined.
There is an element of suspense woven into the story that keeps the reader on their toes. Given Summer's history and hard feelings between Evan and one of his teammates, it's hard to pin down where the threat is coming from. Ms. Dover does an excellent job of weaving the romantic and relationship story lines with the suspense elements so that neither piece of the story feels neglected.
This is the sixth installment of a series, but new readers (like me) will be able to read Catching Summer without feeling lost. Ms. Dover is a new author for me, but I will definitely be reading more of her work in the future.
