Karen’s Review

I saw this book reviewed on Instagram. It was described as a light summer read novella, and so I downloaded it.

Summer in Bliss is the story of Mia and Dash. They had each rented a holiday home on the edge of the ocean in a town called Bliss. When another woman and her daughter move in between their condos I expected a bit of conflict. I didn’t expect what happened between, so I really liked that. In fact that happened in several places.

The writing is lovely, and the author knows how to keep the reader interested without something ‘bad’ always having to happen. There is a lovely twist at the end, one that seems logical but I didn’t see coming.

There is nothing to dislike about this book. The only thing that caught me by surprise was the dog, who didn’t bark, he ‘arfed’. An expression I haven’t come across before.

If you love a sweet, clean novella, with beautiful characters, unexpected twists, then you are going to love this.


In this sweet/clean Hallmark style rom-com, wit and drive meets tragedy. Can the hunky fire lieutenant help Mia face her past and put her life back together?

Mia Everly is an independent, driven woman happily married to her career. She has everything—loving parents, a brother who’s her best friend, and the perfect companion any woman could ask for…her canine pal, Hope. When her traumatic past resurfaces, rocking her to the core, Mia questions her future.

Dash Stevens, a Lieutenant with the county fire department, is a widowed father to his daughter, Allie. After three long years, he’s come to terms with single fatherhood. Allie is the only girl he wants in his life…but she has ideas of her own.

Newly-neighbored on Bliss Cay, Dash and Mia’s worlds intertwine changing their lives forever. Will Mia get the answers she so desperately wants? Will Dash’s ambitious personality push her away or is his compassionate heart exactly what she needs to help her find them?
