What is this novel about?
"Author Jennifer Gracen brings together a colorful cast of friends and family in Book One of the Seasons of Love series, AUTUMN GETAWAY. Newly divorced mom Lydia is just getting back on her feet. Her college roommate’s wedding promises a much-needed getaway weekend with old friends, at a beautiful manor in Connecticut. When she meets Sam, a handsome friend of the groom, she's nearly overwhelmed by a confusing mix of hope and trepidation. Their instant connection feels intensely real, to both of them, but the ink is barely dry on her divorce decree. It takes all her nerve, and more than a little prodding from her girlfriends, to convince Lydia to give her heart - and Sam - a chance. But when the magical weekend comes to a close, Sam must return to Chicago, while Lydia heads back to her complicated life and young son in New York. Can their newfound connection survive the trials of physical distance and years of emotional baggage?"
What I liked from this novel...
This was a very enjoyable read that took place among friends and family celebrating a wedding one weekend. I found this novel very detailed and very relatable heart warming story, however, I was a little disappointed that I would have to wait until the next sequel to find out what happens as Sam and Lydia try to find love. The author has given the reader a good read of romance through love and relationships. The characters for the most part were well developed, loveable and believable helping to give the reader a interesting sweet and sexy enjoyable read. Be ready for a read of fun, friendship and even some drama with some powerful storytelling that will keep your attention till the end.
