A Reader's Opinion: A STARDANCE SUMMER by Emily March

Updated: Feb 3, 2020



A STARDANCE SUMMER offers the reader romance, charm, and real emotions. Lilliana Howe had to get away. She packed up, joined a group of quirky women called the Tornado Alleycats, and headed for the mountains of Colorado. In Eternity Springs, she bumps into her brother's childhood best friend, Brick Callahan (aka Mark Christopher). She didn't expect to see him again, and Brick really didn't expect his friend's skinny, freckle-faced sister to grow up into such a beautiful woman.

What I liked most about Lilliana was how little you thought about her looks throughout the story. She was fun and caring with a great personality. She was very easy to like and connect with. Brick wasn't as easy to like in some parts of the book but I liked the change in him during the story. Everyone heals from heartache in their own way and sometimes it takes longer for others. Patty, one of the secondary characters and "leader" of the Tornado Alleycats, was a scene-stealer and a lot of fun.

I haven't had the pleasure of reading an Emily March before, and I enjoyed the story and writing style that made the book easy to read. I was a little confused with all the back and forth on the names for Brick at first but once I kept it straight, the story moved along easier. This book is #13 in the author's Eternity Springs series and can be read as a stand-alone, but the number of characters mentioned leads me to think that it might be helpful to meet some of them in earlier books.

Emily March has a nice way of building the romance to make it feel believable and touch the heart. This would be a great book to add to your summer reading collection.

Return to the beloved small town of Eternity Springs in the newest installment of Emily March’s New York Times bestselling series with A Stardance Summer.

Sometimes the end of one road Brick Callahan enjoys every minute of chaos at his campground, Stardance Ranch, especially after the Tornado Alleycats arrive for an extended summer stay. The members of the all-female glamorous camping club are primarily seniors—active and adventurous, friendly and fun.

Because his best friend's kid sister has grown up to be drop-dead gorgeous.

. . .is the start of another

Betrayed by those she trusted, Lili decides she's put her career first for too long. She sells her practical sedan, buys a travel trailer, and heads to Eternity Springs for a summer of rest, relaxation, and reassessment as the newest member of the Alleycats. The last person she expects to find running an RV resort is her high school crush. Their undeniable mutual attraction is a reminder that life is full of surprises. But when the past comes calling, will their summer romance stand the test of time?
