A Stardance Summer
Sometimes the end of one road
Brick Callahan enjoys every minute of chaos at his campground, Stardance Ranch, especially after the Tornado Alleycats arrive for an extended summer stay. The members of the all-female glamorous camping club are primarily seniors—active and adventurous, friendly and fun. But when he discovers Liliana Howe frolicking with the glamping grannies in a late night skinny-dipping session, he fears he's in for a summer of trouble. Because his best friend's kid sister has grown up to be drop-dead gorgeous.
. . .is the start of another
Betrayed by those she trusted, Lili decides she's put her career first for too long. She sells her practical sedan, buys a travel trailer, and heads to Eternity Springs for a summer of rest, relaxation, and reassessment as the newest member of the Alleycats. The last person she expects to find running an RV resort is her high school crush. Their undeniable mutual attraction is a reminder that life is full of surprises. But when the past comes calling, will their summer romance stand the test of time?
A Stardance Summer makes the perfect beach read for it’s light sweet romance, and uplifting message of hope and self worth. I could totally say that this book is way better than the last one. Why? Two words: Glamping grannies.
Small town nosiness aside, everyone needs a glamping granny in their lives. Definition: Funky, disco loving grannies who camp in style with their tricked out campers. They have names and themes for their campers y’all. I totally need to think of one for mine. I was seriously envious of Lili for having such a kooky character like Patsy in her life. Patsy is a secondary character that is the catalyst for Lili and Brick’s developing love. She was the advice giver and the one that really made me giggle.
I mentioned earlier about messages of hope and I really think it played a large role in the story. Lili is at the point of her life where she is re-thinking her choices because of a shattering moment in her career. So even though she is running away from her problems, she still has that guiding angel. I loved everything about that and it might have taken her a long time to realize it, but that’s only natural.
“Guiding angels are those people in your life with good intentions who teach life lessons. They are people who prove to you that it’s okay to trust–yourself and one another.”
One of the special things about this story is the friends to lovers theme. While not exactly friends, Lili and Brick have known each other since childhood and I LOVE those tropes. Brick the all oblivious and stubborn male is everything you would expect in a contemporary hero. Sweet but stubborn. So yes, he did frustrate me, but that’s totally alright.
I really liked this book better than the last one because I think the characters were written better. I felt more invested in this storyline and it made me laugh and tear up. Perfect combo if you ask me. Although this is the 13th book in the series, and does read as a standalone.
