About the Book
Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter is the first book in the Chapel Ridge Novels.
Madison’s heart closed the day her twin brother died.

Since losing her twin, Michael, in a drowning incident, Madison has rejected the faith he lived by. Instead, she’s devoted her life to fulfilling Michael’s dream—winning the River Sail Regatta in their small Indiana town, Chapel Springs.

As she trains for the regatta, Beckett O’Reilly is teaching Madison to swim. But he’s keeping a painful secret from her—and as they grow closer, that secret threatens to upend their lives . . . and the lives of both their families. (Goodreads)

My Review
Denise Hunter is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is fun, romantic, God centered, and entertaining. This book is no exception, it is the perfect summer read. Madison has held a lot of pain from the loss of her twin brother and decides she needs to make her brother's dream come true. Afraid of water and unable to swim she signs up for sailing lessons and fixes up her brother's boat. Much to her dismay she discovers the man she set lessons up with is unable to teach her, someone is sent in his place. As the story continues, Madison grows and confronts her past, even when secrets come out in the open.
I really loved this book, I read it in one evening. Fun characters, believable story line, and I really liked Madison's family. Highly recommend!
"I received this book from Litfuse for free in exchange for an honest review."
