The Summer House

Her oldest friends' beautiful and ancient house on Exmoor and now they have the chance of buying But her marriage is threatened when her husband refuses to live so far from his practiceMeanwhile Matt begins to discovers the strange and tragic secret which has affected his whole li. Not what I was expecting at all and not in a good way Where was the intrigue suspense and the mystery The memory box is hardly mentioned in the first 34 of the book so you spend most of the time waiting for something interesting to happen not that it ever really does There is a mix of convoluted characters that are very insipid and boring and add no real depth to the book at all The author tries to explain the relationships between the characters as if this is an important part of the plot and will play a big part in the end game but they just don t I really didn t see the point of practically reading a whole book on the mundane actions of stereotypical English countryside characters just to have them have no impact on the plot at all Why do authors think that they have to write British characters the same way over an over again Not all of us have afternoon tea and cake and say old fashioned things such as whatever is the time and I ve had a beastly day Contrary to belief we British do move with the times and we are able to loosen our stiff upper lips enough to speak collouially The mystery itself was very glossed over for most of the book hardly being mentioned at all until nearly the end and then being hastily resolved within a couple of pages To be honest I couldn t really understand why the secret was kept for so long and why it had to be kept under wraps This was my first Marcia Willet book and I expected much from a supposedly accomplished author It was lackluster and boring with no real direction or resolution

The first couple of pages of this book didn t grab me so I set it aside for a couple of weeks Once I got into the story however I was charmed by the characters and the setting and finished the book uite uickly The central plot contains a mystery that I didn t find very mysterious it includes 3 different elements one of which I guessed when it was first referenced and the other two before the book ended I don t know if Willett s intention was for readers to understand these plot elements before the characters did and watch the characters move toward these truths or if the reader is supposed to be surprised as well Despite that issue I felt satisfied when I put the book down I though Willett did a good job of tying up the loose ends in the various relationships without making everything too neat and pat And I was disappointed to leave behind many of the characters especially Lottie who would make a wonderful neighbour and friend Road-map to the Indians Treasure various relationships without making everything too neat and pat And I was disappointed to leave behind many of the characters especially Lottie who would make a wonderful neighbour and friend

Tos was his sister Imogen He has a strange unresolved feeling that there is something missing in his lifeImogen is living with her husband a country vet and their gorgeous baby in a rented cottage Since her childhood she has loved the Summer House a charming folly in the grounds of. 35This book had such great promise interesting characters with various relationships to one another a hint of a mystery and a great setting And because of these things I enjoyed the overall reading experience However I think the biggest problem is the structure of the book Nothing really happens until the last third and the few things that do happen in the first two thirds never come back to play a part The mystery is solved through an insane coincidence that just pops up in the last 50 pages There was so much that Willett could have done with the idea that this book is based on and while the writing itself was great the execution and timing of the plot fell flat

    I loved the idea of the main premise but it didn't fulfill it's promise It just danced on the surface of the characters thoughts ideas; it stayed very one dimensional I got none of the feelings needed to really connect with any of the characters It really needed to go deeper on many levels and I think if it had it definitely would

    Still a fluff book but a step higher than The Great Escape The writing is a little wooden and the plot is both contrived and predictable but it's an enjoyable book maybe because Willett seems to believe so whole heartedly in what she writes about the healing power of the English countryside and family love even especially if that family is patched together She introduces WAY too many characters whose relationships are far too complex in far
