    So, normally, I don t really read romance types of books Even though I m still considered a hopeless romantic, I try to stay away from those sappy love stories I like action and strong characters that have to face some pretty hard things in order to survive Yet, every so often I ll pick up a book that has some kind of love story attached to it Let me just say that this book was far from the sappy love story It had a love story included in with the plot, but it took a backseat to an amazing prota [...]

    This novel offers a thoughtful journey into the deep woods of Minnesotad the human heart Ali loses her mother and is sent to her only living relative, a grandfather she s never met Ben lives deep in the woods and has a generator in his garage Lights out at nine each night, so a bit of a shock for the city girl The story charts their relationship, along with a sweet romance with Chase, who works at a nearby lodge which Ben once owned and operated The characters are good people with solid fundamen [...]

    I received a free copy of this wonderful book through first reader program From the start I had to keep reading to know how life ended up for the main character I thought this story was well written and kept me interested I have read a lot of stories lately that I really disliked the endings however the ending of this story was upbeat and enjoyable I will be looking for other books by this author.

    This has been described as a woman s book I big to differ It is an interesting, well written article about a grandfather and his granddaughter thrown together by tragedy and circumstance The writer successfully pulled together how they finally came to accept each other and deal positively with the deaths of mother, daughter and wife Romance plays a minor role in the story.

    Once again, Deanna has a home run I have read every book she has written Proud to say I am a big fan.Cannot wait for the next book.

    Heartwarming story Nice summer read.

    I typically don t read a lot of romance novels, but this one was a good choice It wasn t too sappy I enjoyed learning a little about the Minnesota North Country, where Cinda has roots I liked the attention to nature in this story.

    Jean Baxter
    Sweet story I enjoyed Maybe a little predictable yet held my interest with great characters and descriptions of the north woods making you feel like you were right there with them Dealt with some tough subject matters but handled with honesty and compassion.

    5 Big Stars for Summer of the LoonSitting down with a new Deanna Lynn Sletten book is like having lunch with an old friend As soon as I read the first few sentences, I begin to relax Deanna s smooth writing style takes me immediately into the story The characters are so believable, so familiar like an old friend that I feel an instant connection with them.When Ali, a junior in high school, loses her mom to an overdose of pills and booze, the teen has to leave her California home and move all the [...]

    A wonderful story of a young girl who is taken away from a life she knew in California to Minnesota to live with family and folks she never knew Ali has lived with her alcoholic mother all of her life Never knowing who her father was or anything about her mothers past When Ali finds her mother dead after an over dose or suicide, she goes to live with her estranged, grumpy Grandfather Bill at a resort in Minnesota This is a beautiful story of love, forgiveness, family and new loves My heart broke [...]

    16 year old, Ali, is a city girl who s brought to the mid west after her mother s tragic death Now living with a grandfather she had never met before, she s forced to accept new surroundings while still holding on to her ideals Ali ends up getting than she bargained for Although a bit juvenile in its simplicity and at times difficult to continue because of it, I would ultimately consider it a cute Summer read.

    What a beautiful bookThis is the kind of book that everyone should read The story feels so real, I fell in love with Ali Despite everything she went through, she kept herself together and positive And Chase, Jo and of course Ben, they are just wonderful people This book made me laugh and cry but truly, it just made me feel good Made me stop and think what I have and what is really important to me son, my treasure Great reading.

    I loved this book The book had such a sense of place the setting was beautiful I felt like I had actually spent the summer in Minnesota I loved the way the loons were gently interwoven into the book and the mood and tone they helped set Ali faced her difficulties I admired her strength and enjoyed the hopefulness of the healing that takes place in the book Also enjoyed the romance both generations

    Phyllis Lautenschlaeger
    A struggle to find home for Ali and peace for her angry grandfather,Ben.A bittersweet story of sending love away and finally receiving it again as a gift Seventeen year old Ali lives a life caring for her troubled mother and then her mother dies leaving Ali no choice but to go far from California to the far north and a complete shift in lifestyle I enjoyed the story was written and it is well worth reading.

    Diana L Thomas
    A DecisionI m not sure if I enjoyed the love story of the family or the love expressed for the loons There is so much compassion between Ali, Ben, Chase and Jo you want t be part of their family Reading about the loons has made me put Minnesota and seeing the loons on my travel bucket list This was a wonderful book.

    Mary E
    I liked the characters in the story It was sad that so much time had been lost between the grandfather and granddaughter but both grew into a good strong relationship A lot of the story was somewhat predictable but that is not necessarily a bad thing either It is comforting when things work out as we want them to.

    Janet Friesner
    Borrowed this book from the Prime Library because I had recently read another book by this author and enjoyed it This is the story of a young girl who lives in California, loses her mother and goes to live with her grandfather who she had never met He lives on a lake in the north woods of Minnesota It was fast moving and finished it in one day Did not put it down.
