A faded scrapbook reveals secrets that reconnect old friends in a place called Sweethaven.
Campbell Carter has come to Sweethaven in search of answers about her mother’s history. Just before losing a battle with cancer, Suzanne Carter sent letters to childhood friends from her hometown of Sweethaven, Michigan. Suzanne’s three friends — Lila, Jane, and Meghan — haven’t spoken in years, yet each has pieces of a scrapbook they made together as girls. Suzanne’s letters have lured them all back to the idyllic lakeside town, where they meet Campbell and begin to remember what was so special about their long Sweethaven summers. As the scrapbook reveals secrets from the past, old wounds are mended, lives are changed, and friendships are restored — just as Suzanne intended.
This is one of those books that I became completely immersed in once I picked it up. I just really enjoyed all these characters and you can feel the small town days of summer jumping off the pages of this book. Perfectly captivating from start to finish! The characters were so genuine and real that I teared up on multiple occasions. Full disclosure that I was ill at the time I was reading this book, so some of the emmotional mess may be due to a sickness induced haze! I was so focused on finding out the answers to all of Campbells questions as the story progressed that the pages of this book just kept turning! Campbell and Luke’s relationship was steady and sweet and I loved the friendship they formed. I am pretty sure I want to be invited to Adele’s house for dinner or dessert. She was the perfect monther hen, cooking, baking and caring for every single person in this story. I can’t wait to grab the next book in this series!
