Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Wonderful contemporary life drama – One Summer Sunrise by Shari Low

As the sun rises on a hot summer’s day, four lives are about to be changed forever…

Brand new from the bestselling author of What If?, What Now? and One Day In Summer.

Today, Maisie McTeer decides to track down the ex who jilted her at the altar. Today, she’ll find out that revisiting the past can also rewrite her future. 

After losing her husband, Harriet Bassett can no longer bear her lonely life. Today, a familiar face in a crowd will spark a quest to discover if there’s something and someone worth living for. 

Scott and Kelly Bassett’s daughter is leaving home. Today, Scott plans to tell Kelly that he’s ending their marriage to pursue his rock and roll dreams. 

However, Kelly, has a bombshell of her own. How will Scott react to the news that a new arrival is on the way to fill their empty nest? 

Between sunrise and sunset, there’s love, heartbreak, laughter and tears, but who will find happiness at the end of the day?

My Review:

This is a wonderful contemporary story about love, life, choices and dreams . . . . all of which were changed in just one day for so many people! They are linked by attending a fundraising event where the revelations made, people they meet and interactions all impact on their future – one day really can change your life!

Filled with secrets, the story follows four people and their peers. There’s eighty year old Harriet Bassett, a widow who is about to be discharged from hospital to her lonely home . . . . Maisie McTeer who is coerced into returning to the place where she should have been married, if only the groom had turned up . . . . . Then there’s Scott and Kelly Bassett, neither of whom are happy in their marriage but never acknowledging it. Both are determined to be there for their daughter who will be leaving home tomorrow.

With three – or potentially four – generations involved, this deals with some difficult issues with love, humour and hope. There are fantastic friends, lovely relatives and great characters to like and others to dislike! It is a moving story that leaves you with a grin on your face and includes several romances across those generations. Romance certainly isn’t only for the young in this delightful read!

Thank you to Boldwood and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
