With an idyllic seaside setting and a delightful cast of characters, Mystic Summer by Hannah McKinnon is a heartwarming novel of family and friendship.

Maggie Griffin’s life is going just as planned: she has a wonderful job teaching elementary school, she has a terrific boyfriend and she remains close to her family despite living out of state. However, with her best friend (and roommate) Erika’s wedding fast approaching, Maggie cannot help but feel like everyone is moving on without her. Just she learns her position might be eliminated due to budget cuts, Erika’s wedding hits a major snag and Maggie suggests they move the nuptials to their hometown. Needing some time away, she volunteers to oversee the wedding preparations in Mystic and soon after her arrival, Maggie runs into her old college flame, Cameron Wilder. While she and Cameron enjoy revisiting their favorite spots and reminiscing about the past, Maggie puts off making any decisions about her future.

Maggie is loyal, kindhearted and often puts others needs in front of her own. Although she is thrilled that Erika is marrying the man of her dreams, she knows their friendship will be forever altered. Dreading living on her own, Maggie has put off looking for a new apartment while secretly hoping she and her boyfriend, Evan, will move in together. While she has been perfectly content with her relationship, once she reconnects with Cameron, she begins noticing little things about Evan that irritate her. Her friends and family certainly think that Evan is the perfect man for her, but Maggie is beginning to have doubts about their future together. After Cameron faces an unexpected crisis, Maggie cannot help but wonder if there is room for her in his life.

Despite a few serious undertones, Mystic Summer is a light-hearted read with minimal angst or drama. The characters are multi-layered and well-rounded and the situations they are dealing with are realistic and easy to relate to. An absolutely charming novel with a heartfelt and uplifting storyline that readers of contemporary fiction are sure to love. ( )

This book was one of my 20 Summer Reads and I am so glad I chose it. It was a light, easy story to read but had a good storyline that kept me interested. It was a romance, but there was a lot more to it than that. The story takes place in Mystic Connecticut and there is even a reference to the movie, Mystic Pizza.

When Maggie finds out that she is probably going to lose her job teaching at the private school in Boston due to budget cuts, she is not sure what her future holds. Not only that, but her best friend and roommate has to change the venue for her upcoming wedding due to mold issues. The venue becomes the yacht club back home in Mystic, and off they go to get things set up. Maggie is also dealing with her boyfriend Evan. He is an actor in a soon to debut television drama and seems to be so busy, they hardly see one another. Once Maggie is back home she decides to stay for a couple of weeks until after the wedding. When she runs into her old boyfriend who is back living in town, with a baby girl, some unexpected feelings emerge in Maggie. Even though Evan ticks all the right boxes and Maggie thinks he is perfect, there’s still some sort of connection with Cam that she can’t let go of.

I really liked this story for its simple and honest message. It was a story of letting go of the perfect image you might have of someone or a situation. It was about embracing what makes you happy. It was telling us to follow our hearts and what feels right. This is the perfect book for those times that you want to sit back and lose yourself in a quick and easy read. If you are looking for a summer read pick this one up before it gets to cold to sit out in the sun and just lose yourself in a story. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley. ( )

What a truly enjoyable read. I did kind of figure out the plot early on but it is exactly the kind of plot I enjoy. It was a story I thought about while out in the garden and couldn't wait to get back in to start reading again. I have a couple other Hannah McKinnons on my TBR shelf and I will put them to the beginning of the line. ( )

Second chance stories are always those reads some of us either love or or dislike. This one fell right dab in the middle for me. I liked it. It was an easy read. It didn't move too fast or too slow and it wasn't cheesy. There is enough "real life" in this one to keep the story completely interesting.

This was my first Hannah McKinnon book. I would not be adverse to reading another by her. Her characters are well-developed. Her plot development flows seamlessly. I sat and read this book with much interest, anticipating the ending.

This is the perfect book for a beach read. Tuck into your beachbag, lounge out by the water and read it from start to finish. It's one of those light, not overly emotional reads you can just sit back and read in a few hours. ( )
