Read The Summer Guest Online Free - Perfect for fans of Maeve Binchy, a lovely, warm, Irish family saga of three generations of women coming together one magical summer in the small seaside town of Caracove Bay.
A little magic is about to come to sleepy Caracove Bay...
Lexie and her husband Sam have spent years lovingly restoring No. 3 Cashel Square to its former glory. So imagine Lexie's delight when a stranger knocks on the door, asking to see the house she was born in over sixty years ago.
Kathleen is visiting from America, longing to see her childhood home... and longing for distraction from the grief of losing her husband.
And as Lexie and Sam battle over whether or not to have a baby and Kathleen struggles with her loss, the two women realise their unexpected friendship will touch them in ways neither could have imagined.
In Caracove, there's more than a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

There were too many ???!!!??? moments in the first 30% to make me want to read on. Shallow, self-centred individuals who are materialistic and money-minded. The elderly woman from the US was just too far-fetched for my liking.

As usual, I'm going to begin my review by swooning over Emma's stunning cover for The Summer Guest. Take a look, readers. Isn't it just sublime? Everything about that cover is what I LOVE. The gorgeous blue sky, the pretty garden seats. It reminds me of beautiful summers spent sitting in the gard...
