More praise for Summer Beach

I really enjoyed this novel from cover to cover and read most of it in one sitting as I could not put it down. As with all of Amber’s novels, there is always more than meets the eye. These are not just feel-good fiction stories. They cover rich and diverse themes exploring the behaviour of people… Amber delves into the layers of a person’s heart and peels away the facades. She observes and explores in her stories, the reasons people do what they do. …

This novel oozes love, kindness, friendship, neighbourly care, courage and emotional healing. I highly recommend this heart-warming and uplifting story, no matter the season. 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️” Read Cindy’s full review.

“I so enjoyed this easy read feel good story … Hello rock star fans, where are you hiding? because I have news for you, this is very much up your alley way… I was totally invested in this book… 5 star review/rating.” Pauline

“Amber’s done it again. She has intrigued us, beguiled us and left us longing for more. Apart from the joyful and relaxing belief that Summer Beach will have a happy ending, the superb prose is a wonderful testimonial to the delight of the descriptive word.” Annette Billingham 

“Summer Beach is the first in Amber Jakeman’s new series Escape to the Coast trilogy and I can’t wait to read the next one. As always Amber does not disappoint and has written a sweet, romantic, clean inspiring love story that was great from beginning to end…

“Summer Beach is a sure winner with every possibility of finding its way to the Hallmark Channel to be presented as one of their starring Saturday Night Romance Movies. Please do not pass this one up but instead put it on the top of your reading list.” 5 stars from Trudi
