Review: A Stardance Summer by Emily March

Stardance Summer cvr


Return to the beloved small town of Eternity Springs in the newest installment of Emily March’s New York Times bestselling series with A Stardance Summer.

Sometimes the end of one road
Brick Callahan enjoys every minute of chaos at his campground, Stardance Ranch, especially after the Tornado Alleycats arrive for an extended summer stay. The members of the all-female glamorous camping club are primarily seniors—active and adventurous, friendly and fun. But when he discovers Liliana Howe frolicking with the glamping grannies in a late night skinny-dipping session, he fears he’s in for a summer of trouble. Because his best friend’s kid sister has grown up to be drop-dead gorgeous.
. . .is the start of another

Betrayed by those she trusted, Lili decides she’s put her career first for too long. She sells her practical sedan, buys a travel trailer, and heads to Eternity Springs for a summer of rest, relaxation, and reassessment as the newest member of the Alleycats. The last person she expects to find running an RV resort is her high school crush. Their undeniable mutual attraction is a reminder that life is full of surprises. But when the past comes calling, will their summer romance stand the test of time?




After a miserable encounter with her unsupportive parents, all Lili Howe did was to take a chance, jump onto the lake with the Tornado Alleycats, and soon she found the man she’d been hopelessly in love with since she was a child.

After assuring the honeymooners that they’re in a safe ranch, all Brick Callahan needed was peace and quiet, and soon he was looking at a pair of shimmery long legs and a beautiful woman who was once tall and gangly when she was a child.

All they needed was to reconnect and rebuild a friendship that had gone lost, but their excess baggages seemed to hold up their chance of getting together.

This has been a charming read. I loved the characters in the story, most especially Liliana “Lili” Howe and her attitude towards achieving her goal in life – to newfound freedom and new beginnings. I loved that she got herself out of her cocoon and took her chances after getting stuck at being the good daughter who always adhered to rules. I loved how she became a different person when she decided to let go and let loose.

Brick Callahan aka Mark Christopher, aka the boy in the treehouse was a revelation, too. I thought I wouldn’t like him for Lili because he was a flirt when they were kids. Well, he soon had me grinning the moment he called Freckled Legs and admonish the skinny-dipping grannies. That scene had me really cracking up. From that moment on, I knew A Stardance Summer was going to be a great read.

And Emily March did not disappoint. I loved how I couldn’t forget Brick and Lili even after reading this book. I loved how Miss March made her characters flawed and realistic and sensible. I really liked that this storyline is had me smiling and sighing with love when I got to the last page.
