While I thought the inclusion of someone who is not Christian was a nice touch, I really was not pleased with the intolerance. Oct 16, Sandie rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. These books are so cute. They have a Mayberry feel to them. Oct 03, Elisabeth rated it really liked it.

About The Author
A little disappointing due to some loose ends toward the end of the book. Shelves: gary-chapman-catherine-palmer , ill , need-to-look-at-recommendations. Kim's children were rude and disrespectful and it helps that it is revealed why early on in the book but I did not enjoy them as characters until the book was almost over.
I enjoyed reading the references to Steve and Brenda's marital troubles that were the focus of the first book since I didn't read the first book. I also liked that at least one couple were firmly on the right track and able to help the other couples. I dislike the in-law story line in most media because it's predictable and seeing the disrespectful behavior between the two family members is really irksome to me. This book was no exception.
Miranda really crossed the line, I think, whenever she referenced that Luke and Lydia were not really her grandkids. That is not acceptable behavior. The way Kim and Derek communicated with each other also highly annoyed me. She didn't realize that her way of communicating needed an adjustment when it came to her husband and her frustration at his response was annoying because she couldn't see that her approach was the problem.
I did like the slight twist near the end of the book concerning the nature of Derek's relationship with his mom. That added an extra layer to the plot.
With all that being said, I really liked the conclusion of the book. I understand it was based on a non-fiction book about communication so I can see why it is written the way it is. I really enjoyed seeing everyone take the time to "fish" with their significant others and start communicating effectively. It was beautiful to read.
I also enjoyed seeing the little hints about the plot for the next book. I really liked the characters and it was nice to read about them again. I was sad when Cody left to go see his aunt. I thought the story line about the mother in law coming to help and then coming to live with them was interesting. I did not like that the new husband finally admitted to a gambling addiction after three years of marriage and that his mother was making him repay all the debt.
He has a new wife and two children and all their savings is going to his mother. I thought that was terrible. The mother in law was an intersting women and it made it hard to like her. I dont think that I ever did. It was a good book but I liked the first book better. Oct 28, Candace rated it it was ok. This was an interesting journey for me on this book. I really liked the characters, especially Cody, Pete and Patsy, but some of them I did not enjoy.

I liked the characters involved in the next novel so I might read it. Nov 22, Elaine rated it it was amazing Shelves: audio. This book focuses on Derek and Kim's family.follow link

Looking for a light, entertaining audio book to listen to while getting ready in the morning; I picked up "Summer Breeze" at our local library. This Christian oriented book is part of the Four Seasons fiction series, focusing on four couples, all in different seasons of life.
I was looking for entertainment when I picked up this audio book, but I received so much more, lessons I can apply to my daily life, all from an engaging book, delivered in a style that is not overly sweet or sentimental. Dec 24, Jodi rated it liked it.
