A Heartwarming Summer Romance
Summer at Oyster Bay is the perfect feel-good summer romance, about the importance of home and family, learning what love is, and living for the moment.
They say falling in love is easy. But what if you know it'll break your heart?
For Emily Tate, returning to her charming childhood home, Oyster Bay, is like coming up for air after the fast pace of her city life. At the farm her grandfather built, surrounded by sister Rachel's chatter, Gram's buttermilk biscuits, and the soft, white sand, Emily is reminded of exactly who she is and what she holds most dear.
When Emily starts working at the elegant Water's Edge Inn, Charles Peterson, the handsome new owner, asks for her help. He wants to expand and needs Emily to teach him the local ways, so he can convince the planning commission. Emily vows to make him fall in love with her hometown just the way it is.
At work Charles is reserved and serious, yet once Emily has him kicking off his shoes in the sand and sailing across the glistening Chesapeake Bay, she sees another side to him, and their easy rapport feels like the start of something big.
But when it becomes clear Charles' plans for the inn involve bulldozing Oyster Bay, Emily is heartbroken. Will she lose her home and Charles all at once, or can she save Oyster Bay and give true love a chance?

"A gorgeous novel with wonderful characters and such a meaningful plot, one which I think everyone can learn from." (Reviewed the Book)
"A delightful read with a wonderful setting and cast of characters at its core; definitely recommended to chick lit fans!" (Spoonful of Happy Endings)
Feel good, Romantic, Hopeful.
I loved Emily and her love for her family and hometown. When she meet Charlie there is an attraction between them as she try to show him what the people of her hometown want. I loved that they both brought something out of each other. And slowly discovered what was in their hearts.
I haven't listened to Teri Schnaubelt's readings before, but I did feel that she did a great job with the character voices and bring them to life.
The end where Charlie showed just how much he loved and cared for Emily.. So Romantic...
Summer At Oyster Bay is a lovely story about two people finding each other and learning what love means to them. With a few twists and turns and family closeness... I think this book is the perfect feel good summer story. It will leave anyone feeling all lovely by the end.
