Review: Summer at Lake Haven by RaeAnne Thayne


Release date: June 23, 2020

Publisher: HQN

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Return to Haven Point for one last summer by the lake…

Samantha Fremont may still be grappling with her mother’s death, but this summer she’s determined to build a new life for herself. Starting with making her friend’s dream wedding dress and establishing herself as a boutique fashion designer in the process. What she does not need is a surprise litter of puppies, the voice in the back of her mind saying she can’t do any of this—or her friend’s gorgeous brother who’s visiting from England for the wedding.

Ian Somerhill knows a sabbatical in Haven Point is exactly what his children need to recover from their own mother’s death. And even if he and Sam got off on the wrong foot, she has a way with Miranda and Thomas. As Sam—and her adorable puppies—bond with his children, they fall into a friendship unlike any he’s had in a long time. But Ian has obligations in England her can’t ignore—and a complicated past that might just stop this summer romance from ever blooming into something more. 

I write this review feeling bittersweet because it’s the final book in the Haven Point series 😩😭 This series has brought me so much joy, I’ve fallen in love with the town and its residents over the years and I’ll miss looking forward to a new book. I took my sweet time reading this one too knowing that it was the last and I have to say, it was a very fitting ending to one of my favorite small town romance series.
I’ve been dying to read a book following Samantha forever now, she’s been one of the best reoccurring characters throughout the entire series and I was so happy she was finally getting her own book. Besides finally getting to learn more about Sam you have this charming English family visiting for the summer and a wedding, talk about the perfect setting for romance. This is romance at its purest and sweetest, it’s clean and adorable and so heartwarming. Highly recommend this whole series!
Overall rating: 4/5
