Book Review - One Summer by David Baldacci
Title: One Summer
Author: David Baldacci
Paperback, 384 pages
Published May 28, 2013 by Vision
This book is our July Book Club selection. I don't think I would have just picked this book up on my own. I have just read some of the reviews listed on Goodreads and perhaps my 4 star rating is a bit high. There were lots of 2 stars on Goodreads. The story was filled with dramatic events that were kind of over-the-top. I found myself wondering what "fantastic" thing would happen next. It wasn't boring and the ending wasn't tragic. But, how much drama could happen to one family? I liked the characters and I liked the heart of the story. Maybe they will make a Lifetime movie out of it. Basically, it was a summer read - what do you expect?
My 4 stars stands. It wasn't a page-turner, but it wasn't bad.
