From The Manufacturer

Reeling from her divorce, Sadie Turner packs up her kids to spend the summer at her eccentric Aunt Dody’s lake house. What’s meant to be a quiet respite turns into a fun-filled adventure, thanks to her aunt, flamboyant cousin Fontaine, and a handsome neighbor. Desmond, who’s filling in for the local doctor, is Scottish and charming and takes immediately to Sadie’s colorful family. As far as everyone’s concerned, he’s the perfect summer fling. But when what starts as a casual and steamy interlude evolves into something more serious, Sadie and Des must decide whether they can open up again after heartbreak. Debuting romance novelist Brogan, who also has a historical romance coming out later this year, shows a real knack for creating believable yet quirky characters. Her contemporary romance has the usual misunderstandings and requisite happy ending, but the surprising emotional twists along the way make it a satisfying romp. –Aleksandra Walker

I highly recommend that you check it out for yourself if you’re a fan of light-hearted and meaningful stories.
It's a tolerably funny, light-hearted read.
Ms. Brogan is a master of vivid (often hilarious) imagery and witty banter, and her characters have just the right touch of humanity to keep them from becoming caricatures.

What reviewers didn't like

Some of the characters did get on my nerves a couple of times
I disliked Sadie for being sulky, selfish, neurotic and demanding.
