    This was a very good read. The storyline is great, a slow start.

    I bought this for a beach vacation based on Booktok reviews. This is the perfect beach read and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it’s set in Canada. Loved all the fun references to all the things I love about Ontario, like Tim Horton’s and the Muskokas. I’m now reading and loving This Summer Will Be Different. Great author.

    Every Summer After by Carley Fortune is a touching and beautifully woven tale of love, loss, and the power of second chances. This novel captures the essence of summer, evoking nostalgia with its vivid descriptions and deeply relatable characters.

    The story revolves around Persephone Fraser, affectionately known as Percy, who has avoided her hometown for years after making a life-altering mistake. Fortune skillfully takes readers through a dual timeline, alternating between Percy’s childhood summers and her present-day confrontation with past decisions. This structure not only keeps the narrative engaging but also allows for a deeper connection with the characters.

    Percy’s journey back to Barry’s Bay is prompted by the passing of a loved one, forcing her to face Sam Florek, her childhood friend and first love. Their chemistry is palpable, and their shared history is rich with moments that range from heartwarming to heart-wrenching. The author’s depiction of their relationship is authentic, showcasing the complexities of love and friendship.

    One of the novel’s strengths is its setting. The lakeside town of Barry’s Bay is almost a character in itself, with Fortune’s descriptive prose bringing its charm to life. Readers will find themselves transported to lazy summer days filled with swimming, boating, and the smell of pine trees.

    Fortune’s writing is both poetic and accessible, making this book an enjoyable read for a wide audience. Her background as a journalist shines through in her attention to detail and the emotional depth she brings to her storytelling.

    For those who appreciate character-driven narratives with a strong emotional core, Every Summer After is a must-read. It is a testament to the enduring nature of love and the importance of forgiveness, both of oneself and others. Whether you’re lounging by the beach or curled up on a rainy day, this book promises to be a companion that stays with you long after the final page is turned.

    I devoured this book. I loved how nostalgic it was. I was transported back to 2001 where my summers were endless and my only care in the world was going back to school. This book brought back so many feelings that you forgot about: first love, first loss of love, and just learning about life. I loved the story of Percy & Sam!

    Read this book so quickly. Super cute, nostalgic romance with a little bit of spice 🌶️
    Immediately ordered another Carley fortune book 📕

    As other reviews have already pointed out, it’s a love story. A brilliant written and heart-warming love story, which gripped me right from the very beginning, when Percy tells us about the dangers of a hair cut right after a break up. The writing is elegant and agile. The story is timeless and warm, but never getting cheap. I felt I was right there, by the lake in those hot summer months with the adorable characters.
    I gave it four stars because of the long sex scenes, a little boring for my liking, and the cliché line “white girl privilege”, which I think is a very simplistic view of the world and human relations and, in the book, is thrown aleatory, without any relation to the story whatsoever.

    I LOVED this novel. I’m a nurse so I have to wake up at 4:30 for my shifts. I couldn’t stop reading. I slept like five hours lol. WARNING: read during a weekend lol. Also, the perfect summer read.
