Book Review: An Invincible Summer

By Cindy Roesel

“Friendship is complicated. Families are complicated. Love is complicated.”

The occasion of their fortieth high school reunion brings three women together who were BFFs, those many years ago. In Mariah Stewart’s new novel, AN INVINCIBLE SUMMER (Montlake Romance), Maggie, Emma and Lydia pick up their friendship in Wyndham Beach on the coast of Massachusetts just where they left it.

The girls catch up over margaritas and the gossip, belly laughs and stories begin. Maggie left Wyndham Beach after high-school and got married in Pennsylvania. She has two daughters and her husband has been dead for several years. But Maggie left behind a secret none of her friends or daughters know about.

Emma’s husband has passed. For years he fought with their son who wanted to have a career in music. Well now Chris is a rock star and Emma is lonely in her big house. 

Lydia, known at Liddy, lost her daughter to suicide. Her marriage crumbled shortly after.

AN INVINCIBLE SUMMER is about friendship, marriage, mothers and daughters, forgiveness and starting over. All ingredients for a delicious, curl up in a big cozy chair read. Mariah Stewart does such an incredible job creating characters you want to know and spend time with. This is the beginning of a new series and I can’t wait to see what happens next in Wyndham Beach.

Thanks to Amazon Publishing for the book in exchange for an honest review.
