Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A charming gem of a novel.” Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A refreshing story about the choices we make and the choices sometimes made for us.” Shelley Noble, New York Times bestselling author
“A lovely, heartwarming novel that captures the intricacies within family and friend relationships. Past and present collide in a novel about looking back, moving forward, and the beauty that blooms when fate intervenes. McKinnon’s empathic characters will make readers wish their story continued past the book’s end.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Features characters who must look past short-term happiness to build a future. New-adult and women’s fiction fans will find this book appealing. It’s a novel for twentysomethings facing major decisions including love, marriage, first apartments, jobs, houses, and the decision whether or not to have children.” Library Journal
“Amy McFadden narrates from Maggie’s point of view in the light, practical tone of a woman who thinks she has life figured out. Making the story easy to follow, McFadden provides a variety of accents for Maggie’s Boston friends and co-workers, as well as her family back home in Mystic, Connecticut…McFadden captures her uncertainty as she wavers between the life she thought she wanted and what she left behind. Mystic Summer captures the magic of summer, and McFadden’s narration is spot-on.” AudioFile
