Comeback Novel/Message ~ Summer's Song by Lindi Peterson ~ Review

It’s a comeback novel with strong premise: that God can take our ugly and broken and turn it into something beautiful.
Summer Sinclair has a name like music to go along with a flourishing career, but the one man she shouldn’t allow herself to love is the one person who could change her life completely for the better.
I loved Levi. Though I’m not sure that many female readers could read this book and not love him. He’s chivalrous, hunky, kind and caring, wanting the absolute best for Summer as she discovers her new relationship with God.
I would definitely qualify this book as being for more mature audiences. Summer comes with a great deal of influence from her old life and that influence plays upon the page in ways that should be expected before starting the book. It’s not your “sweet” romance, but real life isn’t. I thought it portrayed reality well, though I would have preferred the language referenced twice be left out of the dialogue.
  Summer and Levi’s coming together and eventual falling apart (this is a romance after all) combined with their past and the haunts that have risen up to threaten their future played well with the story and created good tension.
All in all, a good story with good morals and I appreciated its message.
  This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy to review.

More about the novel...

All she has to do is prove that she's changed . . . completely. 

Pop-star princess Summer Sinclair doesn't know what to do with herself now that she's cleaned-up and sober. She knows God's been nudging her, but since God is unfamiliar territory, she feels scared and alone. Everything changes when she meets Levi Preston, a Christian musician who's falling for Summer and wants her to be who God created her to be. But when the reality of her life takes Levi to places he's vowed to stay clear of, will Summer's newfound freedom be what breaks her heart as she does what is best for Levi?

  4. I love Lindi's writing. She's rock solid in how the character's react to one another. Her stories are rich and full. I've really been enjoying Summer's Song. Not quite through it yet, but taking it on the road for my car reading material on our way to Thanksgiving.
