When a new book is poised to come out, I always hold my breath until the four big trade journals weigh in: Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, Publisher’s Weekly, and RT Book Reviews.
The first of the lot just came in this week– and it couldn’t be more positive.
According to RT Book Reviews, That Summer “is a story that will linger in your mind”.
Here’s the full paragraph:
“Willig stretches her writer’s wings as she crafts a double love story stretching from Victorian England to the present day. With its alternating viewpoints, this is more than a love story or a mystery; it’s a tale exploring the lives of two women and how secrets create and destroy relationships. Willig cleverly leads readers into two mysteries, answering some questions, but leaving others untouched. Willig brilliantly demonstrates how the truth can bring freedom and understanding. This is a story that will linger in your mind.”
(And, yes, I may have re-read this a time or two today as I was trying to gear myself up to work on the next book.)
Thank you, RT!!
