Summer in the Spotlight Review


About the Book


A hurricane may have destroyed her livelihood on Prince Edward Island, but she's determined to save her community

Kelsey Ahern has performed at the Victoria Playhouse on Prince Edward Island every summer since she was seven. But when a hurricane destroys the building, it's not just her memories that are in jeopardy. Her future as a teacher and drama coach are too. She teams up with Levi Ross, the facilities director at the high school, to produce a benefit show to raise money to rebuild the theater. He has a reputation for being able to fix anything, and Kelsey is sure there's more to the quiet man than meets the eye.

For his part, Levi has admired Kelsey for years, but he can't seem to find the words to tell her. When a popular weatherman arrives in town to cover the aftermath of the hurricane and takes an interest in Kelsey and her show, Levi realizes that the time has come to speak up--or lose the heart of the woman he longs for.

Join New York Times bestselling author Liz Johnson for a season of rebuilding, restoration, and romance with this final book in the Prince Edward Island Shores series. (Goodreads)




 My Thoughts

Oh how I LOVE PEI. It is such a special place and reading any book with such a beautiful setting is a joy. The author has done a great job with this series. You don't have to read the previous two books to enjoy this one. This story does mention the other characters from the other books so it would tie everything together if you did! Kelsey has a personality that jumps off the page and Levi...does not. He is a very quite person, so much so that I got a bit irritated at his shrugging and facial expressions with zero dialogue. I love Levi but there were times I wanted to "hear" him say SOMETHING. All that to say, I really enjoyed this book and the ending was wrapped up simply. I think book one is still my favorite but this one had a fun theater vibe that I loved.

 Four Stars.
