This is a comforting book, and I sensed that from the first page. Reading it is like curling up in a window seat on a cold gloomy day, with a fire crackling on the hearth, and a good book in your lap! The reader just instinctively knows that there will be a happily-ever-after conclusion, and instinctively that propels one forward through the book, with trust and optimism. Top recommendations for this one, and I anticipate future stories from this wonderful author!

"Lynette Rees has written a story that holds your attention from the beginning. It Happened One Summer is full of misdirection and keeps you guessing about who did what and what will happen next. This book is a great vacation read. So relax and enjoy."

"With It Happened One Summer, things must be magical. Lynette Rees made it so. Love at its best, be sure to pick up It Happened One Summer."

Review, Ecataromance 4 stars.

"Read the book and yes, you're right. The book is not perfect; it is: great, wonderful, stupendous, marvelous, amazing, glorious,splendid, excellent, super, terrific, fine, superior, grand, superb, awesome, magnificent, and practically perfect.

Its only flaw is a lack of warning that people reading it may need to have a heart pacemaker installed to keep their hearts from racing and their breathing regular.


~ Jim Deuster U.S ~

The twists and turns of Lynette's suspenseful story keep the reader on edge as the stalker becomes more inventive. Her word painting of Castell Mynydd is breathtaking.

Lynette's characters are all people you feel you know and, for the most part, would enjoy having as neighbors. Her deft handling of Sandy's dilemma with her stalker and the ensuing satisfactory ending make 'It Happened One Summer' a special and fun read for any season.

~ Pat McCain, author of Time For Us July 2005 Wings ePress

IT HAPPENED ONE SUMMER has a strong sense of place, nimble dialogue and good-humored, amiable characters.
