Barefoot Season Book Review

I was at the library before the holiday weekend and I had to grab some books because I didn't have any left in the pile.  I left my son sitting in the kids section reading a book to look for something on the shelves.  I don't usually do really well with that because the shelves are stocked with all the books that I special ordered and returned so they usually look a little more familiar and less like new books.  I recently finished a book about Mischief Bay so I went to grab another one in the series and there was a complete series next to it on the shelf so I grabbed all three.  This was the first in the series and I was excited to read it.  Barefoot Season (Blackberry Island) by Susan Mallery was a great find!

Michelle Sanderson may appear to be a strong, independent woman, but on the inside, she's still the wounded girl who fled home years ago. A young army vet, Michelle returns to the quaint Blackberry Island Inn to claim her inheritance and recover from the perils of war. Instead, she finds the owner's suite occupied by the last person she wants to see.  Carly Williams and Michelle were once inseparable, until a shocking betrayal destroyed their friendship. And now Carly is implicated in the financial disaster lurking behind the inn's cheerful veneer.  Single mother Carly has weathered rumors, lies and secrets for a lifetime, and is finally starting to move forward with love and life. But if the Blackberry Island Inn goes under, Carly and her daughter will go with it.  To save their livelihoods, Carly and Michelle will undertake a turbulent truce. It'll take more than a successful season to move beyond their devastating past, but with a little luck and a beautiful summer, they may just rediscover the friendship of a lifetime.

Another great book that I am glad that I picked up!! It was a fast read but even though the cover makes it look like a great beach read, this one was a very emotional one.  There was a lot going on in the book with the characters and settling back into life after getting injured in the line of duty.  Michelle left her life 10 years before and joined the Army but after getting injured, the first place that she wanted to go is home.  It is an interesting story showing how she is working on rebuilding her life after a lot of tragedy like loosing her mother while she was going through major surgery so she couldn't be there.  Now she has to deal with all the problems that she left behind and I think that you will be interested to see how she deals with them!  I hope that you check out this book and others in the series because you will enjoy them as much as I have!
