Were there issues with this story? There were. Was the writing elegant? It was not. Did I sink right into this, sitting on the beach smiling like an idiot for hours on end? I did. It ain't art, but its a damn good time. Piper failed to charm me nearly as much as she did Brendon, but I still loved it.

One note: Many people have compared this to Schitt's Creek. The storytelling could not be less like that show (which I loved) and Piper was nothing like Alexis. The rich city girl in a small town learning what really matters is a very old trope. This is as much Lisa on Green Acres or every city girl on every damn Hallmark movie who falls in love with the cowboy or the lumberjack as it is Alexis. ( )

For Schitt’s Creek fans, a steamy version of Alexis and Mutt’s relationship. ( )

Influencer, socialite, party-girl Piper Bellinger has definitely garnered quite the reputation for herself, but lately she's coming to realize it might not be the reputation she wants to have. When her current boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her at an event, Piper decides to get even by throwing the most over-the-top party LA has ever seen.

When that party lands Piper in jail, Piper's stepfather decides it's time for some tough love and maybe learn a little about their late biological father in the process.

So, Piper along with her sister Hannah, head to Westport, a small town that pretty much makes its living off fishing. Being such a small town the sisters immediately gain a lot of attention. Add to the fact that they're the daughters of a beloved, lost member of their community and the scrutiny is real. Especially when Piper comes up against sea Captain Brendan Taggart.

Brendan thinks he knows Piper and he's not here for someone coming to his town and messing up the routine. But as they really get to know one another it's clear that maybe they both need a change.

I think this is my favorite book by Tessa Bailey so far. I mean, Piper is presented as the quintessential spoiled, rich, party-girl, but I really loved that Tessa Bailey makes the real Piper with her kind-heartedness and caring come through. It makes the idea of people only seeing her on a superficial level stand out even more and makes it all the more heartbreaking because we see, throughout the course of the story, how people want to exploit her privilege and really only want to be her friend for the status.

When she comes to Westport those preconceived ideas about her follow her for a bit, but it quickly becomes apparent that the people of Westport don't really care how many followers one has. I loved getting to see Piper take a break from that side of her persona and really come into her own, but also the fact that it doesn't mean she has to give up her love of fashion or nice extravagances.

Brendan is immediately kind of on the defensive when he sees/meets Piper and through their first couple of interactions. Honestly, I kind of liked the initial animosity between the two because it clearly masked the attraction that Brendan was feeling for Piper. He hasn't allowed himself to feel any way towards a woman since his wife died a number of years ago, so I liked that immediately Piper threw him for a loop.

Once Brendan admitted that's where his initial bad attitude was coming from, he turned it around and became determined to make it work between them. I loved seeing his character acknowledge the differences between Piper and himself and instead of wanting to change the way she is, he just wanted to figure out how they could intertwin their lives together. Of course, intentions are easier said than done and Piper's self-consciousness when it comes to people believing in her and taking her seriously (as more than an airhead) are serious things that she needs to work through.

Overall, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book. I wanted to live in this book world for so much longer. The steam and popping chemistry between Brendan and Piper just added so much to the story, and I thought that the pacing was absolutely perfect. I'm excited that it seems we'll get Piper's sister Hannah's story and there's a lovely secondary setup happening for her in this story that I can't wait to see how Tessa Bailey brings to fruition.

I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+. All opinions are my own. It Happened One Summer is the first book in Tessa Bailey’s fun new series, It Happened One Summer. Piper Bellinger is an Instagram influencer leading a glamorous Hollywood wild child lifestyle until her stepfather says enough, he will no longer finance her shenanigans and that she is to spend the summer in her hometown looking after the bar left to her by her father in Westport, Washington. Piper, inspired by Alexis from Schitt's Creek, is very much a fish out of water in the small town, but much to her surprise, she is finding her footing and learning about herself and her family history. Very Hot Crab Fisherman Brendan Taggert doesn’t know what to make of Piper at first. She’s like a fresh breeze bringing change and shaking him from the routine his life settled into after his wife died. I enjoyed this book very much, it was a fun read, and I recommend it. Steam Level: Medium-High.
