For a single girl in her 30s who longs to be married, it can be easy to feel a little lost when all your princes keep turning into frogs. Anita Higman details the twists and turns, triumphs and failures, in one young woman's search for love in her new book, Summer's List.
After breaking her engagement with a rising politician, Summer Snow is adrift in life and love. Again. Summer's wise grandmother---hoping to help her granddaughter---offers her a list of goals and adventures to fulfill, telling her that she must carry out the list with her long-lost childhood friend, Martin Langtree.
Some of the items on her grandmother's list are---take a hot air balloon ride, build a tree house, sing in public, find a treasure, befriend a dog, learn how to whistle, and kiss someone you love. Martin is happy to help Summer with the list, but unfortunately, his two younger brothers---who are addicted to the lavish lifestyle given to them by their older brother---will do anything to keep Martin from following through with the life-list and falling in love with Summer.
In the end, God helps Martin learn how to deal with his overindulged brothers, and the list of adventures helps Summer to find her true calling in life. She also discovers that her dearest childhood companion, Martin Langtree, who made the ideal friend when they were growing up, could now make the ideal husband.

Here is my review of this enjoyable weekend read:
First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Anita Higman and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Summer's List" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.Summer's List by Anita Higman is one of the most unique Christian romances I’ve ever read. To say the characters are quirky would be a gross understatement. These are the most unique group of individuals that the reader can’t help but be entertained. The Christian concepts woven throughout the story are thick and inspiring the reader toward seeking forgiveness, restoration and God’s will. My favorite lesson of the novel is that the strongest person isn’t always the one left standing.
Summer Snow and Martin Langtree are childhood friends who’ve been estranged for many years. The result of Summer’s Grandmother’s prayers for her Granddaughter is a list of things to do – experiences to have – that Granny gives to Summer to accomplish – with Martin Langtree. This refreshing story of romance and family love is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.There were several fun items on the “life list” Summer’s Granny gave her to accomplish. What would you want to be on your life list?
