The Summer of Hopes and Dreams – by Lynsey James

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

It’s been a difficult year for Cleo Jones. The car accident that crushed her leg didn’t just destroy the village baker’s dreams of becoming a dancer, but crushed her confidence too. And recovering from that has been harder than healing from any number of broken bones…

But this summer is going to be different. Life is turning around for Cleo! Maybe it’s the invitation from her childhood bully to their high-school reunion that’s shocked her out of a ten-year slump. Or joining Carb Counters and finally starting to shed the weight she’d piled on during her recovery – or maybe it’s catching the eye of her gorgeous personal trainer!

Whatever the answer, this is going to be a summer she never forgets… watch out world, Cleo Jones is finally fighting back!

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

The story follows Cleo Jones, who crushed her leg in a car accident and had to burry her dream of becoming a dancer. She also struggles with her confidence, but things suddenly change in the summer, for several reasons.

It was great to follow Cleo around and see her grow and getting her confidence back. With the help of a bucket list, she starts getting her life back. High school reunions and other things like Carb Counters help her on the way. And of course there is also a gorgeous male character in the picture. Scott is her personal trainer.

They both have a history, so things might be tricky at times. There are some serious topics in this book two and I like who it’s touching and deep, but also very inspiring and fresh.

Cleo is a great character and I really liked her scenes with Scott.

I warm and fuzzy story, written in a very fresh way!
