That Summer review Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB 2009 When Julia Conley hears that she has inherited a house outside London from an unknown great aunt she assumes it's a joke She hasn't been back to England since the car crash that killed her mother when she was six an event she remembers only in her nightmares But when she arrives at Herne Hill to sort through the house with the help of her cousin Natasha and sexy antiues dealer Nicholas bits of memory start coming back And then she discovers a pre Raphaelite pain. Here is another dual story novel where a young woman from our current time inherits a house in another country and although she intends to just clear it sell it and leave she discovers family history mystery and Love I must say this is the perfect formula for chick lit and I love it especially when something extra is added such as ballet Wildflower Hill or Pre Raphaelite art and artists in That SummerHowever in this book Julia main modern character is hard to like because she s wishy washy and not much fun We later come to understand as she does that she s been emotionally stunted by events she couldn t uite recall and those final chapters almost redeem her for this reader but not uite Other characters such as Nick Imogen and Gavin are much fully realized and likable There are too many flat stereotypical characters such as Jane Evangeline Natalie Caroline Helen and even Julia s fatherThis edition hardback had uite a few errors not caught by a proofreader which I thought was odd My main complaint is that the author would repeat over and over again Julia s inner monologue and it was tedious always the same thing She employed this so many times I wondered if it was filler of some kind because it wasn t necessary to convey Julia s emotional hesitations My second complaint is that the rather interesting character of Aunt Regina who willed the London house to Julia was unfortunately undeveloped Never fully explained was her reason for choosing Julia as her heir and never revealed is what she Regina knew and how she knew it That was a terrible sentence but to be specific would reveal too muchI recommend the book but it isn t a favorite PS I m adding this at a later date the reader never learns Who killed a certain person and why the smell of a decaying body wasn t detected less worrisome in the times And Who was it that entered a studio with a key it would have to have been Jane since she wound up with a particular painting If so her entire fascination and compulsion should have been an interesting and important piece of the story The Life Tree Poems remembers only in her nightmares But when she arrives at Herne Hill to sort through the house with the help of her cousin Natasha and sexy antiues dealer Nicholas bits of memory start coming back And then she discovers a pre Raphaelite pain.
