The Infinite Summer~A Review

Oh, to be young again! The Infinite Summer by Morgan Lee Miller brought back a lot of nostalgic memories of my own youth, especially that summer between high school and college. Part of this is due to the author setting the story in an area close to where I grew up. While the town of Gaslight Shores, South Carolina is fictional, I recognize bits and pieces of real life places in the coastal towns of South Carolina, especially around Charleston and Myrtle Beach (the Myrtle Beach of my youth anyway). The author did an exceptional job of creating a fictional town that is very true to life for this area.

This is a YA tale of two young women who meet after high school in the vacation town of Gaslight Shores, the perfect place for a summer love story. It’s also a first-love story with all the angst, passion, and adoration we’ve all felt at this age. Add in secrets kept that should be shared, family troubles because of divorce as well as economic problems that could affect the future and you have a truly entertaining book.

The author did a wonderful job with the setting, the characters and the story itself, but I have to say the best part of this novel, for me, is the ending. The way this book ends is the way I want all romance stories to end. To say any more would be giving away too much, so I’ll let you read to understand what I’m talking about.

This novel is not only an entertaining and enjoyable read, it also took me back to my own youth and that really fun summer after high school. I hope it does the same for you.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
