How 'Bout Them Reads: The Summer We Came to Life

Samantha's life hasn't been the same since Mina, her best friend, died six months before. She has spent her time moving, never standing still. Most recently, she has been in Honduras biding her time, unsure of where her life was going and unsure of whether she should marry Remy, her long time boyfriend. But for the time being she has been content hiding herself away.

Her hiding is greatly disrupted when her living friends decide they were putting the Vacation Club back together. Samantha was less than pleased about her visitors, feeling like it was never going to be the same without Mina, but decided to make the best of it knowing she didn't really have a choice.

Kendra, another of the best friends, decides at the last minute she's not going. She's facing her own problems. She as a great job and a great boyfriend with plans to one day marry him. The only problem is that she discovers she's pregnant. Her boyfriends wants her to get an abortion and now she doesn't know what she wants. She knows that she too is feeling the pain of losing Mina.

Isabel was hesitate to go on vacation, but jumped on board quickly when she loss her job. She too is coping with the loss of their friend. But this trip turned out to be more than she could have imagined.

The other members of the Vacation Club included Isabel's mother and bridge partner turned lover, Arshan. Arshan was Mina's father. Also there was Lynette and Connell, Kendra's parents.

Samantha starts to find her way and find the way to move on and cope from the loss of Mina from this vacation. The entire group learn a lot about each other and life and loss and love through each other.

This book wasn't bad. It took a weird turn at the end, but overall the book wasn't bad. It took me awhile to get through it because I was struggling getting it initially. However, this book was poorly edited because I found several problems with this book.

I'm way behind on my Reading Challenge, or maybe now right on track. I have to get reading. So if you'll excuse me...
