A widow at twenty-six, Primrose Bloom returns to idyllic Good Hope, Wisconsin, with her two rambunctious young boys, seeking the beauty of the lakeside landscape and the comfort of home. After the loss of her husband and her job, all she’s looking for is peace.
Prim is resolved not to date again until her boys are in college, but her will starts crumbling whenever she’s around her former high school debate partner, Max Brody—who just happens to live in the charming cottage next door. Max has reservations of his own about giving love a second chance and is determined to keep his distance. But when the two pair up to work on the town’s Fourth of July celebration, the fireworks over Green Bay aren’t the only sparks flying. Are Prim and the small-town boy she left behind perfectly wrong for each other…or perfectly right?

I first came across Cindy Kirk when a friend gave me the book Christmas in Good Hope. I loved it! So when an opportunity opened up for me to read an advance copy of Summer of Good Hope I jumped on it.
Primrose Bloom lost her husband two years ago. Left to raise her twin boys on her own, she decides to return to her hometown. It's here she once again connects with Max Brody. The two of them had once been close. They end upworking together on the Fourth of July parade which means they have to see each other regularly. It's difficult fighting their attraction to one another but Prim doesn't want to get involved with anyone until the boys are old enough to be on their own and Max refuses to get involved with someone whose heart isn't free. Prim still has her dead husband's ashes in an urn on her mantle.

Did you ever read a book and want to move to the fictional setting? Did you ever want to move next door to the main characters? Well, after reading this book, I want to do both. Primrose Bloom, a 26-year-old widow, returns to her hometown of Good Hope, Wisconsin, with her twin boys. She’s trying to find some peace with the comfort of her family. But, when she’s partnered with Max Brody, her former high school crush, to coordinate a Fourth of July parade old feelings rekindle. Can the spark last forever? This is the second in the Good Hope series. Several aspects of this book makes it a standout read. The characters are very small town America, and I felt like I was reading about a new neighbor. There was just enough suspense to make the hero look brave, and the heroine caring and responsible. The best thing about these books so far is the underlying message that is not preached to the reader, but is gently related through the actions of the characters. I would...
