A Girl Called Summer by Lucy Lord

Blurb: 

Island life is just one step away…
A new start…
Bella and Andy have escaped the rat race for the sun-drenched, relaxed lifestyle on the island of Ibiza. But with a run-down house to make habitable and a distractingly gorgeous neighbour, is their island idyll all that it seems?
A holiday adventure…
Tamara Gold has been Hollywood’s most notorious car crash since she was a child star. Now clean and sober, and engaged to Tinseltown’s hottest leading man, it seems like she’s finally conquered her addictions, if not her bratty behaviour. But a summer in Europe with all the hedonistic lures of Ibiza beckons…
A girl called Summer…
Summer Larsson has always known Ibiza as home: a haven of hippies, yoga and healthy eating – and loneliness. But in Bella, she’s found the friend she always needed, and when Bella’s glamorous Hollywood friends come to visit, it looks like she might have found true love as well…
This could be the summer that everything changes…


My Thoughts:

Lucy Lord delivers summer in her latest book. Whether you are experiencing a heatwave or stuck listening to the rain, this book is the perfect form of escapism.

Lord, will whisk you away to Ibiza, LA and ST Tropez, with this deliciously descriptive read that will have you feeling the warmth of the water and the sand underfoot. 
Her words will leave you longing for Sangria and a chance to experience the lifestyle that's within the pages!

Before I start to tell you about 'A Girl Called Summer' I wanted to say that although I've read and loved both previous books, that if you are a new reader this can be read as a standalone! 

A Girl Called Summer reunites us with Bella and Andy, as they embark on a new life in Ibiza. 
The story follows the couple as they settle into a new way of living, build new friendships and are visited by Poppy, Damien, Ben and Natalia.

I LOVED being reunited with Bella, the change in her life brings about a happier more grounded Bella and it was wonderful to discover.

I LOVED the new friendship that she formed with Summer, Summer is an incredible character and it's great to read about a beautiful character who has kept her personality and is just genuinely lovely and down to earth,
It felt to me as though Bella and Summer changed each other's lives,

I LOVED Jack Meadows, HOT Hollywood movie star, incredibly down to earth and genuine. He sounds divine and has soared his way to the book boyfriend list. 

I LOVED gorgeous, beautiful, happy Daisy! 

In fact ladies and gentleman, I LOVED everything about this book. I need the shouty capitals to emphasise just how much I LOVED the story, the characters and the journey they go on.

Through the pages Lord takes us on a journey that deals with some tough issues, as well as some fun hedonistic escapades. 
With the fluidity of the story flowing like the calmest sea, this is a read that will pull you in and captivate your mind, you will lose yourself in every page and close the book with a sense of happiness.

Summer is delivered in a book that has the most aptly named story and the most gorgeous cover!
