“So. I thought the other 2 books were great, I didn’t think they could get any better. I was wrong, this story has very strong emotional strings that wraps around your heart and leaves you breathless.”

Well-written…Genuine and Realistic

“I really love all the characters in Sweetwater County, and especially the way Ciara Knight interweaves them throughout all the books. As a reader, it really feels as if you’re a part of the town and catching up on all the characters from the previous books as well. This installment deals with a young couple, Marcus and Rose. They have a sweet relationship that just warms the heart. Unlike many romance books, we don’t watch Rose and Marcus fall in love, rather, they are already a couple and trying to find a way to stay together despite Rose’s disapproving father. Marcus shows how a guy from the wrong side of town can be a loved citizen with much to offer. This is another Sweetwater County book that had my eyes watering with happiness at the end.”

The mystery, suspense and thriller element in the book keeps the reader on the edge of his seat. There is so much happening which kept me captivated till the very end. I could not keep down the book until I had finished it. 🙂

“All in all, this is a beautiful and very interesting book from Ciara Knight which everyone will enjoy reading. 4.5 out of 5 and I strongly recommend Summer in Sweetwater County to everyone and look forward to reading more from Ciara in the future. I just loved this series and wish more of the people of Sweetwater in the future. :)”

“So following from my review of Spring, this one. OH MY GOODNESS, this one got even deeper into my heart. If that was possible.”

“Wow, is all I can say. If you have not read the other 2 books, Winter and Spring, you can still start with this book. You will not be lost and it might just encourage you to read the others. This story, at first, appears to be another good girl from the right side of the tracks falls in love with bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. While that is part of it, there is just so much more to this story. The blurb does not give it justice.”
