Review: Summerhaven by Tiffany Odekirk

What an absolutely wonderful Regency romance! Hannah spent much of the first half of the story hoping to remind Ollie, her childhood friend, of his promise to marry her one day. She had built up many ideas in her mind about the way their lives would be once they were happily married. Yet, Ollie did not seem to share her devotion. There were some hard lessons to learn and some uncomfortable situations for Hannah as she navigated her visit to Summerhaven.

Yet, what was beautiful, was actually seeing Damon’s devotion to Hannah and learning more about their childhood time together from his perspective. What a swoony hero! I loved seeing these two together. Damon brought out the strong and playful side of Hannah and their times together were my absolute favorites.

I loved the way this author was able to pull my emotions all over the place and make me wonder how things were ever going to work out! This novel is now one of my favorite Regency romances and I hope that this author will write more books in this genre.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Hannah Kent and Oliver Jennings pledged their hearts to each other as children. Now, years later, Hannah is thrilled to receive an invitation to spend the summer at Oliver’s family’s country estate. The path to wedded bliss is clear—so long as Oliver’s highbrow older brother, Damon, has ceased his juvenile antics, Hannah’s future looks bright indeed.

But from the moment Hannah arrives at Summerhaven, nothing is as she expected. Oliver seems disinterested in renewing their acquaintance, and Damon is not the brutish boy she remembers but a man intent on avoiding marriage. Although she has loathed Damon her whole life, when he contrives a ruse designed to win them both what they desire, Hannah warily agrees. All she has to do to reclaim Oliver’s attention is pretend to be madly in love with Damon. But when Damon is surprisingly convincing in his role as a suitor, it proves difficult to discern the line between pretense and true love.
