Summary

Life is better with sand between your toes.

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 butter biscuits, and the soft, white sand, Emily is reminded exactly who she is and what she holds most dear. 

When Emily starts work at 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 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’s 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? 

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.

Summer At Oyster Bay: Romantic Feel good Story.

If you could sum up Summer at Oyster Bay in three words, what would they be?

Feel good, Romantic, Hopeful.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Have you listened to any of Teri Schnaubelt’s other performances? How does this one compare?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end where Charlie showed just how much he loved and cared for Emily.. So Romantic...

Any additional comments?

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.
