"I enjoyed this. Some twists and turns in the relationship, although it never felt truly in doubt. Complications are good, though. I like that the one character didn't just act like a victim around the other main character's issues. Those were well done... Overall, a very good read." -- Amazon Customer Review!
Update Jan 31 2020: Over 10,000 page views in the first week alone! Massive congratulations to Sarah Thompson on here success!
"A very entertaining read. I read the Kindle edition, which makes it hard to tell how much is left exactly, so I thought it was moving a little too fast at first, but soon realized that wasn't the case at all.
We mainly follow Kerri's point of view throughout the story, as she meets the literal girl next door in the beginning of the novel. From those early days, to their time at college, and well beyond, we follow the ups and downs of their relationship.
Any fan of romance will be thoroughly entertained by this tale, and, if you're anything like me, you'll be wishing for more once you're finished." -- Jeff Slade, Bestselling contributor to the From the Rock series.
Update Feb 23 2020: With nearly 30,000 page reads and over 200 copies read cover to cover, The Love of Summer is an amazing accomplishment for Sarah and a wonderful start to 2020!
