Reader to Reader Reviews just made my day. No– my week.
How, you may ask? By comparing That Summer to the works of Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels.
I am beyond thrilled by the comparison to one of my all time favorite authors. If there’s any author whose books have set their stamp on me, it’s Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels, whose books I’ve read again and again and again, year after year.
And, of course, RTR’s calling That Summer “an absolute treasure” and “the perfect summertime reading treat” didn’t hurt either.
Here’s the rest of the review:
“Willig’s second stand-alone novel is an absolute treasure! The author deftly weaves together the present-day story of Julia’s search for answers about her mother’s death with that of a tragic love affair experienced by one of Julia’s Victorian ancestors into one spellbinding tale. Details about the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and their art provide plenty of fascinating plot fodder for story, and the book’s irresistible mix of history and mystery subtly seasoned with a generous dollop of dry wit and just the right dash of romance will remind readers of the classic romantic suspense novels written by Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels. That Summer is the perfect summertime reading treat!”
