So many twists, left me guessing and hooked right til the end. Couldn't put it down once I got into it. ( )

I have read almost all books by this author and this one was my favorite so far. You think you have it figured out early on but throughout the story surprises keep lurling around the corner. Likeable characters, strong plot, nice setting, overall a great read. One summer an 11yr old finds a newborn on the beach. Fast forward 22 years and the reader is thrown into the life of Shelly and her adoptive family. Shelly is now a young adult who wants to find out how she came to be deserted on the beach. ( )

After completing Summer’s Child by Diane Chamberlain, I’m not sure how I actually feel about this story. On so many levels, I thought it was terribly contrived in the twists and turns that the author presented, almost to the point of my feeling annoyed by the author’s manipulation throughout the novel. Needless to say, I did not anticipate the resolution to the story, and by then, I was slightly fed up by the dysfunctional group of characters and the choices that they made. I’m sure that this scenario could indeed be reality to some families, but as far as I was concerned, I thought that the author got carried away in trying to lead the reader astray.
Nevertheless, I will say that Diane Chamberlain continues to present an enticing story that captivates the reader throughout. She is a master storyteller who certainly knows how to weave an interesting tale. As I read this book, I recalled a previous phone conversation that our book club held with her. During the conversation she stated that she used a storyboard to map out her novels prior to writing. Upon reading Summer’s Child, I could not help but whimsically imagine the complexity of such a storyboard for this particular novel. ( )
