I borrowed the large print book, but it was physically too heavy to hold comfortably.

Absolutely wonderful, I saw where the plot was heading and cannot help but love this book. Hilderbrand never disappoints. ANd I love reading anything she writes.

A great, fast read. I enjoyed it. Definitely a good beach read.

Good Read? In my case listen to. Why would any two people who profess to love each other so much do such a stupid thing. Why didn't Jake man up and leave his Bitch wife? Why would any woman throw her undying love away on a guy who only…

It’s a wonder I enjoyed this as much as I did because I was angry with almost all the characters, almost all the time 😆

More of the same stuff from Elin Hilderbrand, a fast read that I enjoyed.

'28 Summers' seems to have elicited strong emotions in reviewers here and elsewhere. I didn't love '28 Summers' nor did I hate it. I simply don't understand why some view everything in the lens of their own era or their own biases. It's…

What a bizarre mixture of politics, luck of any common moral principles- people are sleeping around with their best friends or with best friends of their best friends - and all of that is being framed as ‘romantic relationships’.

Meh...I had to go back and verify if this was a teen romance book... Lots of teenage drama. I was very disappointed. I know the story from “Same time Next Year” but this was a big disappointment.

I should learn that I am not going to enjoy romance novels. I gave this book a chance because one of my favorite films is "Same Time Next Year" with Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn. The difference between the two premises is that in the film…

Another Nantucket gem!

I listened to the audio version of this book. The narration by Erin Bennett was very good. The book started out with a prologue that let you know this wasn't going to be a happy book. That knowledge was hanging over me for the entire rest…

Inspired by the Broadway play and film 'Same Time Next Year', Mallory Blessing and Jake McCloud meet one summer during a bachelor party weekend and create an enduring connection that lasts 28 summers (or 28 Labor Day weekends). Jake…

I enjoyed reading this book. Had a hard time putting it down whenever I picked it up to read. I liked the way Elin Hilderbrand started each chapter with the same format....Summer #1: 1996 all the way to Summer #28: 2020. "What were…

Do you like Chick Lit? You will like this book. Do you like good books you will love "28 Summers." The book set on Nantucket Island begins in 1993 when Mallory's Aunt Greta leaves her a cottage in her will. Mallory moves to the island she…

I was caught up in the drama, but the Supreme Court hearings part was too reminiscent of the Bret Kavanaugh nomination where, in my opinion, he was unfairly targeted without believable testimony and vindictive Democrats. Without that…

3 Stars(?) I think 樂 Dang! This hurt and crazily enough, the ending wasn't a devastating surprise, because it was revealed early in the prologue. Thankfully, that also meant there wasn't the emotional manipulation I often feel in these…

This was by far my best book of the summer. I was reading it very slowly toward the end to make it last. Try to squeeze this one in before the summer is over.

I love this author and while the book was o.k., it was not my favorite. It took too long to tell the story, 28 years to be exact, and conversations that should have been had, were never brought up.

I love this author and was excited to read this book. However, it was majorly depressing. NOT the book for you if you are looking for a pick-me-up.

This was a perfect rainy day beach book. I got hooked on the story and couldn't put it down. Alas, the Same Time Next Year story line started to fizzle and wasn't sustainable over 28 years. I enjoyed her trips down memory lane at the…

I disagree with the other comments. I thought this book was fabulous, from start to finish.

This book was a huge disappointment. Normally, this is a favorite author and I looked forward to reading this newest book of hers. I think it fell flat. Don't waste your time.

Depressing. Could see the ending right away.
