In Cedar Road, everyone is preparing for Lexi’s ‘White Hot’ summer party. For one night, parking squabbles and petitions are put aside as neighbours sip Prosecco under the fairy lights and gather by the hot tub to marvel at Lexi’s effortlessly glamorous life with Hot Hamish.
For Julia, it’s a chance to coax husband Charlie out of his potting shed and into a shirt so they can have a welcome break from the hellish house renovation they’ve been wrestling with. And it’s a chance for Julia to pretend – just for a night – that her life is as perfect as Lexi’s.
But when, during the party, one of Julia’s WhatsApp messages falls into the wrong hands and reveals her most intimate thoughts, things reach boiling point…
And when all the neighbours know exactly what you’re thinking, there’s only one thing to do.
It’s going to be a summer Julia will never forget…
Chells and Books Review:
I would like to thank HQ for sending me this book to read and to be apart of the blog tour.
The Summer We Ran Away is a perfect way to escape this summer. I have read books by Jenny before and totally fell in love with the main characters and the settings are always out of this world. I have to say I really love the cover for this book to using the swimming costume as a part of the deign is such a cool idea.
When Julia finds out that her WhatsApp messages have been seen by the wrong people she is utterly embarrassed and the only thing to do would be to run away. Julia comes across as I character that has a need to always please others and worriers about what they think and what her social media account is saying about her. It is a very relevant topic to cover in a story and really adds a difference to a typical romance story. I loved to see the change in Julia as the story progresses.
I enjoyed reading this book as it tackles complex issues as well as romances. A great read and perfect of you are looking for a different romantic womens fiction read.
