Title: Spring Fever Author: Mary Kay Andrews
The New York Times bestselling author of Summer Rental delivers her delicious new escapist novel about small towns, old flames, and deep secrets
Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless. They’ve been divorced for four years, she’s engaged to a new, terrific guy, and she’s ready to leave the small town where she and Mason had so much history. She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to the beautiful, intelligent, delightful Celia. But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is literally walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe she’s been given a second chance. Maybe everything happens for a reason. And maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back. But there are secrets afoot in this small southern town. On the peaceful surface of Hideaway Lake, Annajane discovers that the past is never really gone. Even if there are people determined to keep Annajane from getting what she wants, happiness might be hers for the taking, and the life she once had with Mason in this sleepy lake town might be in her future.
I was so excited to receive this galley from NetGalley. I love Mary Kay Andrews, her books are always so entertaining with great characters, and of course the setting in the south - a weakness.
Annajane had been madly in love with Mason for it seems her whole life. She stays clear of him for five years, after a short attempt at a marriage. But when she attends his wedding to Celia, a business wonder, she realizes she is definitely not over Mason, although she herself is engaged. Thankfully, Mason's young daughter Sophie starts throwing up at the altar and the wedding has to be postponed, leaving time for Annajane and Mason to reconnect and explore their feelings. Their divorce had been messy and without closure, and after five years apart, start to talk about what really happened. This book actually made me anxious - I wanted Annjane and Mason to get together so badly, and Celia was a perfect villain.
There is much history in their lives and so much hidden behind the scenes, and it all starts to slowly come undone, one twist at a time. I enjoyed every discovery, and simply loved this book!
