Blog Tour: When Summer Comes by Brenda Novak

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: February 2013

One day, Callie Vanetta receives devastating news . . . 
She needs a liver transplant. But her doctors warn that, in her case, the chances  of finding a compatible donor aren’t good. Determined to spend whatever time  she has left on her own terms, she keeps the diagnosis to herself and moves out  to her late grandparents’ farm. She’s always wanted to live there. But the farm  hasn’t been worked in years and she begins to fear it’s too much, she’ll have to return to town.
One night, a stranger comes knocking at her door… 
He’s an attractive and mysterious drifter by the name of Levi McCloud who  offers to trade work for a few nights’ shelter. Callie figures she doesn’t have  anything to lose. He needs a place to stay until he can fix his motorcycle; she  needs an extra pair of hands. The arrangement seems ideal until what was  supposed to be temporary starts to look more and more permanent. Then she  realizes she does have something to lose — her heart. And, although he doesn’t  yet know it, Levi stands to lose even more. 

My Review:
This is part of the Whiskey Creek series, while it can be read as a stand alone, having read the first few in the series really does give you more background on the characters and secondary characters. 

Callie is very secretive about her illness and I just really wish that she would let others in. Having to deal with something like that alone could not be easy, and with so many people around her you would think she would let others in. 

I really liked the meeting and development of relationship between Callie and Levi. I think it was well done and believable. 

As always, there are plenty of secondary characters for you to learn about and hope are the stars of the next book.

This is definitely an emotional ride, but all of the situations seem real and the characters feelings/reactions really do resonate with the reader.
