We need books like this one to get our summer vibe going!

The Summer Island Festival

When Willow walks out on her own wedding, there’s only one place she can go…
Growing up in the island village of Seaview, Willow always dreamed of a bigger life. Then her childhood sweetheart Luc betrayed her and she ran, resolving never to look back.

Now, twelve years on, her glamorous London life is a mess and the island is her only option.

But she’s not the only one back for the summer. Luc is now a world-famous heartthrob musician, and he’s finally come home to headline the Isle of Wight’s annual music festival.

As Willow untangles her messy past, she stumbles on a secret that could destroy her family, the island’s fragile community – and her second chance at love…

Here’s my review

I was truly captivated by this book from the first page. All of the characters are written with so much depth and they all have good backstories. I’ve been so engrossed in the lives of Willow and Luc I know I am going to miss them.

I loved the story threads of Willow in the present day but also of her mum, Cathy, in the 80s. You always get more than a romance with Rachel Burton’s books which I love. With this book you get also get family secrets, an insight into guitars and characters discovering their true path in life.

The romance was lovely ❤️

This book has a wonderful summer vibe to it that seems to leap off the pages. I quite fancy a summer festival now.

A fabulous summer read!

  1. Another lovely one to add to the TBR!

  2. I love the Isle of Wight and wonder what it would be like to live their. I can see The Needles from our cliff top. When you are just born in a London suburb you can’t really ‘go back’ but people born in small villages and islands often leave and only sometimes go back – this sounds like a good summer read.
