Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights


Jean Joachim
Contemporary Romance

"Okay, I know you're braver than I am Trixie"






Faced with a loveless marriage to a cheating husband, Sunny has to get out.  Leaving a life of wealth and luxury, she yearns for the simpler life of her childhood and returns to her mother's old summer home.  What she doesn't expect is to run into the man she had a crush on as a teenager.  Mickey is grown up and even more attractive than he was twenty year ago.  Despite her growing feelings, Sunny wonders what Mickey will say when he finds out that she's still married.  And what her soon to be ex will say if he finds her in a relationship with another man.  But can love truly stand the test of time?

My Opinion: With a good premise, this book started off slowly before picking up the pace a bit.  The story, however, seemed a bit choppy and disconnected from developing true feelings.  Perhaps I felt this way because I couldn't understand the motives behind Sunny's actions.  Even Brad confused me at times.  It just didn't seem like there were natural reactions.  The community Sunny moves to is fun and filled with very good characters.  Mickey is a wonderful character and I liked him a lot.  He was kind and loving and forgiving.  Overall, a nice light read, but not my cup of tea.

I was given a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.

  2. Wow, the initial blurb had me hooked! I have read a few books that I didn't love and it makes the review tough, but honesty is absolutely the best policy!
