Isabel “Belly” Conklin has just finished her first year of college- and she is engaged to steady boyfriend Jeremiah Fisher. After she reveals the news to her shocked family members, Belly decides to spend her summer at the Fisher family beach house planning her wedding. However, Conrad Fisher (her first love and Jeremiah’s brother) also happens to be staying there… As the weeks pass, being near Conrad reminds her all the reasons she fell in love with him in the first place, and Belly realizes she still has feelings for him. (SPOILER ALERT!) When Conrad lays all his feelings and love for her down on the table, Belly must make a choice that will impact her future forever: Conrad or Jeremiah? On her wedding day, Isabel is able to open her eyes and realize that she and Jeremiah aren’t meant to be. The book fast forwards in time to a couple of years later when Belly is getting married, but this time to Conrad, who is without a doubt “The One” for her.
This is the thrilling conclusion to the ‘Summer’ novels and the author’s writing is better than ever. She has written a brand new storyline full of drama and romance, switched the point of view around to suit the story, and masterfully built up suspense to reveal Belly’s big decision (in the epilogue). Like the legions of Jenny Han fans, I am a little sad there are no more books about Belly to read. However, hopefully this review will inspire other readers who are also into romance to read this incredible series. Boston Public Library's Online Catalog
