Summer of Thrills by Ellie Isaacson


Title: Summer of Thrills
Series: Summers in Seaside Series #2
Author: Ellie Isaacson
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 14, 2022

What happens when the person you fall in love with isn’t who you thought?

When Mysti Larson first stepped foot in Seaside, she hadn’t intended to stay. The sleepy little town was nothing more than a place to refuel as she headed down the coast. Then fate took over, handing her a job, a home, and friends she adored, before she fell for the love of her life.

But life in Seaside wasn’t what it seemed. There was a dark secret hidden under the surface of the town. As belongings went missing, and things in her home were moved, no amount of security cameras could make her feel safe.

When her own secrets catch up with her, will Mysti’s friends be able to save her, or will the mystery that’s been plaguing the town come to take her life?

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

The Summers in Seaside series is a collection of contemporary reads based in Seaside. Each is individual and different from the one that came before. Each is a standalone, which means that you can dip in and out as you want.

So this was a suspenseful read. I really enjoy this type of read but this one left me scratching my head for quite a while to reconcile events with what we find out about the characters. It left me doubting my judgement until the twist at the end that presented me with my aha moment.

This was not what I was expecting from this book at all. The blurb hinted at a very different story but this unexpected difference ensured that it stood out in the crowd. I did devour it really quickly as I was desperate to figure what was going on and how the hero wasn't called out for his behaviour. Turns out that there was a really good reason...


Ellie Isaacson has been an avid reader her whole life, but a couple years ago she had a dream that she just couldn't forget. She cultivated that dream and began writing, which became a dream of a different sort. Ellie is thrilled to be able to share her passion with her readers. As an accountant and an author, she slings numbers by day and words by night. She's also a wife and a mother of two amazing boys.
