The first book in the Chapel Springs romance series by best-selling author Denise Hunter!
“A tender story of faith cast adrift and lives brought together by currents that can only be God-sent. Barefoot Summer is a satisfying tale of hope, healing, and a love that’s meant to be. Sail away with Denise Hunter’s well-drawn characters on a journey that is at once romantic and compelling.” (Lisa Wingate, national best-selling author of Before We Were Yours)
Madison’s heart has been closed for years. But one summer can change everything.
In the years since her twin brother’s drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian in their riverside town, the loss still haunts her.
To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother’s dream of winning the town’s annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast.
Beckett O’Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help - and he’ll give it, because he owes her far more than she’ll ever know.
Madison will do anything - even work with the infamous Beckett O’Reilly - to reach her goal. And as much as she’d like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart.
But Beckett harbors a secret that will test the limits of their new love. Can their romance survive summer’s challenges? And will achieving her brother’s dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?
“Hold-your-breath romance, heartache, and laugh-out-loud moments. It’s more than a good read. It’s a delight.” (Lisa T. Bergren, best-selling, award-winning author)

This is one of those books you’re sad to see end. The two main characters are easy to like and their problems identifiable. Really enjoyed the story but the narrator seems like she’s trying to speed read her way through with little emotion behind the lines. Still a great story and worth reading or listening to.

Loved the story but not the narrator
Denise Hunter is one of my favorite authors. Her stories are filled with such heart and depth. Her characters are people that I would love to know in real life. She doesn't tip toe around hard topics, like the death of a loved one. The only thing that really detracted from this audio book was the narrator. Sometimes she spoke fast, and you couldn't distinguish between who was speaking because her voice mostly stayed the same. Sometimes when she was saying Beckett's lines, she spoke in a more feminine voice then she did for Madison's voice. I truly hate to write anything negative but it was hard to get through the whole story but I did.
