    I had to close the book half way through. It was so cliched, the characters rigid stereotypes, the writing amateur, and the plot a recycled piece of fluff that has been executed better by more experienced writers. This is my last book by Irene Hannon. While, I enjoyed her somewhat repetitive Guardians of Justice series which shows that she has a knack for suspense, I'm not fond of her romance. (Even in the Guardian series her romance was stale, boring, passionless, and predictable). Also the top [...]

Her marriage has fallen apart, her daughter is angry and wants her parents back together and her mother is mean, criticizing and controlling. It’s no wonder she feels hurt, lonely and dowdy.

    I wasn’t sure how to put my finger on the pulse of this book. It’s not a romance. But it’s not strictly women’s fiction. It covers more than three characters and a depth of issues. Does it fit into one genre and readership? Hmm, probably not. I’d label it contemporary for fans of Karen Kingsbury.Much moves through this story to propel the motion forward. Characters are largely likeable and deal with some pretty significant struggles. I felt in many cases, how these struggles were handl [...]

Val never wanted to return home but it is time for her to return and put the past behind her once and for all. Karen and Val will learn a lot about each other. They also find romance in David, the physical therapist for their mother and Scott a suffering musician. I have read this author’s criminal romance suspense novels. [...]

    I picked this book up on a whim from the library's new fiction section. It was definitely a page turner (so I was tempted to give three stars). However, it had this unexpected religious aspect that made me uncomfortable. I will not spoil the story by saying how it was involved, but let's just say that abortion was discussed and the message to the reader was definitely that it is wrong and anyone who has one should feel incredibly guilty. And should be asking for forgiveness.The author definitely [...]

    Amy
    This story felt heavily overworked and predictable. The strong pro-life stance came across preachy and somewhat dampened the enthusiasm for finding out how the story ended. The resolution between mother and daughters was too short and too cliched. All in all, this story had amazing potential but fell short.

    Nice read, but I like her suspense better

    Wanda E. Beckworth
    Hard to find a good book with Christian values.I really got involved in this story. What a way to show God's forgiveness. It made me see how abortion can effect lives. I loved the sisters getting close and becoming friends.

    One and a half stars.Val & Karen: Supposedly this novel is about these two sisters. In this case, the summary would be wrong. The relationship between the sisters in easily mended and takes up very little of the book. For the remainder they are friends.David, the physical therapist & Scott, the jazz musician: Um, they exist. David has a daughter. Scott lost two of his best friends and damaged his hand when they were hit by a truck driver.Margaret, the sisters' mother:A cruel and manipula [...]

    While I love Irene Hannon's romantic suspense novels, when I heard she was releasing a women's fiction/general fiction/romantic element novel I had to read it. Over the years Ms. Hannon has become one of my favorite go-to Christian authors so I will read anything she puts out. While romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres, I enjoyed her departure (which is not really a departure, she just published mostly romantic suspense of late) to the general fiction genre. As Ms. Hannon mentions in h [...]

    Irene Hannon is known for her romantic suspense stories and is a prolific and well-decorated author. That Certain Summer takes a slight right, returning to a previous love as she drops the suspense and focuses solely on the romance plot. Although she has written more than thirty-five books this is the first one I have read of hers. Overall, I found the story enjoyable. I thought Irene put a lot of attention to detail in creating her characters. Karen, the good girl and Val, the pretty and talent [...]

    This is a book that is really hard to rate because it is such a hodgepodge of good and bad.Karen and Val are sisters who have never been close. Karen is the "good" daughter,a people pleaser who is at the end of her tether because even with everything she does, she can't please her mother. Val is the sister who quit trying to please their mom a long time ago; she moved from Washington, MO to Chicago to avoid the trauma in the family.When their mom has a stroke, Val, a teacher, reluctantly agrees [...]

    Title: That Certain SummerAuthor: Irene HannonPages: 304Year: 2013Publisher: Revell Irene Hannon’s novels have been a favorite of mine for awhile, especially those filled with suspense/mystery. The novel, That Certain Summer, takes a more relaxed story that is built on the lives of four adults, two of whom are sisters. There are some aspects of the novel that are mystery-like because they reveal something about the characters’ past or present life. A major health issue brings Val back to the [...]

    After reading Irene Hannon’s Vanished, I had high expectations for That Certain Summer. And, although they are very different novels from very different genres, the author did not disappoint. Again, she gives us very good and likable three dimensional characters, intelligent, smart, willing to speak their minds and who act like mature adults. You will not see silly or childish misunderstandings or out of character choices. The author gives us true to life characters in familiar situations, whi [...]

    When you feel you know the characters (or people just like them), then the author has done an excellent job in my opinion.Author Irene Hannon has done just that with the characters in her latest contemporary romance, THAT CERTAIN SUMMER. This is a story of faith, hope, and enduring life’s daily trials, along with the unexpected complications and hardships.Karen and Val are sisters, but have never had a close relationship. Val left town years ago to pursue a theater career leaving Karen to shou [...]

    Although I will be the first to admit that faith based books are not my normal choice and that I can often be very critical of them, I found this book to be fairly inspiring when it comes to the daily dramas that the average person often has to face in their own lifetime. I have seen others comment that the characters and events within this book were too basic or too ordinary. However, I think that is one of the reasons I truly enjoyed the book. I thought the characters and events were ones that [...]

    Families are complex and complicated and sisters Val and Karen are no different in That Certain Summer. As sisters they couldn’t be more opposite. From different looks to jobs, personalities and life choices; these women are as day and night. Having a sister, I can completely relate to this. But even when opposite, there is no better friend than a sister.Unfortunately for Val and Karen, they didn’t experience the joy of sisterhood that I had growing up; much in part I’m sure to their mothe [...]

    This is a satisfying story about two sisters whose lives are changed forever one summer. Karen has always been the dependable one, trying to please everyone in her life but always coming up short, or at least that's how she feels. After her husband leaves her for a younger woman, she's left juggling a full-time job, a teenage daughter, and a demanding mother on her own. When her mother has a stroke, it's the last straw. Though it wasn't severe, she'll need physical therapy and Karen calls her si [...]

    Katrina Epperson
    This is a wonderful story about a family in crisis. I have always enjoyed reading Irene Hannon's stories, but this one takes on a new dimension. I loved the storyline. Essentially the story revolves around Karen and Val, two sisters who have never been really close, but must work together after their overbearing mother suffers a stroke. Karen is recently divorced and grieving the loss of her marriage. When overwhelmed but not only her grief, job, caring for her children and now her mother's care [...]
