Book Overview

The perfect beach read --Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author of Beach House Reunion.

Tender and triumphant.California Summer made my heart sing. --Allison Winn Scotch, New York Times bestselling author of Between Me and You

Anita Hughes's California Summer is a charming and beautiful love story about a former Hollywood producer who trades her cast list in for cookbooks in the hopes of following her dreams and finding new love.

Ben and Rosie are Hollywood's newest director/producer dream team. After hitting it big at Sundance, it seems that their ten years of love and hard work are finally paying off. Rosie is happy making independent films, but Ben wants the A-List celebrity package: a house in Beverly Hills, fancy cars in the driveway, and his name on the biggest blockbusters. He's willing to do anything, even sleep with the most famous producer in town, to get them.

Rosie is devastated by Ben's affair, and she decides to take a break from show business. She accepts her best friend's invitation to spend the summer at her parents' estate in Montecito. It's far away from L.A., the perfect place to start over.

   ... all of Anita Hughes' books and this is the best one yet
This is the best book I have read so far. The writing was excellent. The storyline was amazing! I was able to see the surfers. I will definitely be trying the recipes for fish taco. !
   A great beach read!
NetGalley sent me an advanced reader copy of the book. I finished the book. Rosie and Ben have been living together for the last 10 years. She did everything she could to get him to where he is, so he traded up to a better version of her. Rosie wants to figure out what the future holds for her, so she runs away. Her friend offers her a place to park. She runs into Josh. They were hesitant to move forward as friends. Rosie and Josh kept running away from each other. There is a great story here and it needs 200 more pages to tell it. If you are looking for a fluff piece with no substance, this is the book for you.
   Changing course
California Summer isn't a typical formula romance. The author shows a believable story of a young woman and the pitfalls of a long- term relationship that doesn't work out. It is refreshing to see that the main character is able to lead her own life. She can enter into a healthier relationship where she doesn't lose herself. I liked the California setting because it had a good mix of characters and storyline. This book took me to another place and it was a plus. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher, I was able to read and review this book.
