Product Description

Product Description

Words can change everything, but can they change your destiny?

Meredith is leading a straight-laced life in London with her straight-laced fiancé, determined to forget her reckless, wild-child past. They're about to get married.

Jamie is an old, poetic soul with a broken heart returning home to Cornwall to get his life back in order.

What binds them?

One chance meeting thirteen summers ago; one innocent spell spoken after one perfect night...

And now history is unravelling; the past and present, merging...

Words can change everything, but can they change your destiny?

And in the messy world of magic, what part does love play?

It's summer all over again, but the spell has only just begun.

Full length, contemporary romantic fiction, with a touch of magic. Written in British English.

A percentage of the author's proceeds made from the sales of this book will go to Sue Ryder Hospices, and to the Marine Conservation Society.

Disclosure: This ebook was provided by the author in exchange for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review.

The Spell of Summer is a captivating story following the highly likeable Meredith. Navigating through a momentous and significant time in her life, Meredith takes us on a journey where we feel the pull of first love and the beauty of the magic that goes with it.

Dianna Hardy has created a beautiful, gripping story. As always, her writing is delightfully crafted and visual. She successfully enables the reader to feel compelled to keep turning the pages, and feel a connection with her main characters.

Admittedly, I cried a little during this amazing read. Likewise, I laughed and cheered. The Spell of Summer is a 'don't think just buy' read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is the first book in a new romance series by this author. I LOVED IT!

Meredith Goodwill (Merri to her friends) is a wonderful character. She is an accountant and lives in London. She suffers from panic attacks, but is braver than she knows. I liked this character a lot. She has a big heart, but it was damaged when her father left. Now about to marry, Merri finds her past and present collide when an old flame comes back into her life.

James (Jamie) Corbin is a marine biologist, coming home to Cornwall after a broken relationship in Australia. However, he can't forget the girl he met on the edge of a cliff 13 summers before.

This is a fantastic contemporary romance.This story is certainly different to the author's other paranormal series, as there are no shape shifters or magical beings, but there is magic. I started to read the story, and quickly found myself entranced. I was drawn into the story and I struggled to put the book down. I was whisked away into an emotional roller coaster ride from beginning to end. I loved meeting Merri's best friend, Candice North (Candy for short). She is a free spirit and, although not as wild as Merri was as a teenager, fun to be around. It was interesting to see how she had matured from a reckless teen into a woman with secrets.
There are a few other interesting characters in the story, which were brought to life with their imperfections. I found myself reaching for a tissue or two as I read the story, as some of the characters have pasts and presents that touched me deeply. The story is not only told from the view points of Merri and Jamie, but also a few other characters too.

The spell of summer (once trice thrice) by Dianna Hardy
Dianna Hardy’s Spell of Summer proves that magic does exists and that no matter what if you are meant to be together then you will be. Regardless of how much time passes if you are meant to be it will be.
When Meredith says another man’s name at the alter on her wedding day her fiancée Michael decides that they need some time apart to reassess their commitment to each other. Even though she is upset by this Meredith goes along with his wishes and goes back to her home town. A place she hasn’t been since she was 16 when she left with her mother to make a new start in London. On her last night their Meredith meets Jamie when he saves her life; he then shows her the best night of her life.
Even though Meredith and Jamie went their separate ways and they had lives of their own 13 years latter fate shows them what was meant to be. It is not all smooth sailing and what about Michael? With a little bit of magic anything is possible!
Spell of summer is a wonderfully written book and I found it enthralling. It is nice to let some magic into my life and reminds us to let some” magic” into our own lives. A lovely romance was a pleasure to read this ARC for my honest review. Would recommend this to anyone.
