Single mom Robyn Caldwell needs a new plan for her future. She has always put her family first. Now, with her kids grown, she yearns for a change. But what can she do when her daughter has become the most demanding bride ever, her son won’t even consider college, her best friend is on the brink of marital disaster and her ex is making a monumentally bad decision that could ruin everything?

Take a vacation, of course. Press reset. When her great-aunt Lillian invites her to Santa Barbara for the summer, Robyn hops on the first plane to sunny California.

But it’s hard to get away when you’re the heart of the family. One by one, everyone she loves follows her across the country. Somehow, their baggage doesn’t feel as heavy in the sun-drenched, mishmash mansion. The more time Robyn spends with free-spirited Lillian, the more possibilities she sees—for dreams, love, family. She can have everything she ever wanted, if only she can muster the courage to take a chance on herself.


Delectable drama to sink your teeth into! Susan Mallery is bringing on all the feels with THE SUMMER GETAWAY and I loved very minute of it! There’s romance, there’s drama, there’s sadness, there’s hope … and above all else, there’s that crazy family that we can all relate to once in awhile that drive you up a wall even while being the light of your life. I was hooked from the start and enjoyed every minute of Robyn and her band of jolly misfits.

Robyn is super easy to like and though she tolerates a lot from her family and friends, she also has a heart of gold that makes you understand her gentle side easily.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a dramatic women’s fiction novel with laughter, pain and love all mixed up into one enjoyable read.
