A Sweethaven Summer by Courtney Walsh

Suzanne's daughter, Campbell, journeys there in search of answers to her questions about her mother's history.Suzanne's three friends-Lila, Jane, and Meghan-were torn apart by long-buried secrets and heartbreak. Though they haven't spoken in years, each has pieces of a scrapbook they made together in Sweethaven. Suzanne's letters have lured them all back to the idyllic lakeside town, where they meet Campbell and begin to remember what was so special about their long Sweethaven summers. As the scrapbook reveals secrets one by one, old wounds are mended, lives are changed,
and friendships are restored-just as Suzanne intended.

Roxie’s Review . . . It’s hard for me to believe that this is the author’s first novel!  It is amazingly well-written.  I was impressed with the diverse array of characters.  This book includes all one would want in a good read – including secrets, loss, hope, deceit, forgiveness, and romance.  It was easy to read and I found myself disappointed when I got to the end.

I highly recommend this book and feel sure that many more books will be written by Ms. Walsh.  A sequel would be great!
