Summer Storms is Rebekah Lyn’s debut novel about troubled young professionals battling their emotional storms in the midst of Orlando, Florida’s storm season. As the hurricane season progresses, Lizzie, a hotel worker, learns to love and trust again through faith and friends after a personally devastating tragedy. Jeffrey, also recovering from tragedy, needs to learn how to heal and to forgive. As their lives intertwine and paths intersect, the power of faith is revealed in this moving and ...more

This is my first book by Rebekah Lyn, but definitely not my last. I just attempted to read a Christian book by another author, and it was so boring, trite, and unrealistic, I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. I love the “realness” of the characters in Summer Storms, especially Lizzie. She was flawed, but lovable—a character with real depth—someone I could actually relate to. I like the way the characters in the book learn to deal with the storms in their lives—both physical storms and stormy ...more

Elizabeth Reynolds has been longing for a home to renovate near her job in Downtown Orlando. She is thrilled to have found the perfect house and is throwing her energies into the work along with her contractor, Jeffrey Robbins, but ominous clouds are coming in the form of three killers, Hurricanes, Charley, Frances and Jeanne.

Downtown Orlando has it's own magic and if you are an Orlando fan, you should enjoy the setting of this book. You get a glimpse into the lives of the people in the tourism

I enjoyed Rebekah's book about the 2004 hurricanes in Orlando. It was a well written novel with a Christian twist. I would have added another star but I don't usually read Christian lit so I'm sure if you're into that you'll appreciate it.

Rebeka is a solid writer with good descriptive abilities. I wish she had brought the action into the story a little sooner, but I definitely enjoyed the read!

This is the first book in Rebekeh Lyn's Seasons of Faith series. Something about this author's writing style in this book reminds me of Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series. It seems to be organized the same way and the storytelling is similar. That's a good thing. The main character, Elizabeth Reynolds, is an independent person who has learned in her line of work to be strong as steel wrapped in soft kid leather. She is a concierge for a top rated Orlando hotel. Throughout the story, the reader ...more

Elizabeth has lost her family and almost her faith, but with the support of special friends and her coworkers at Hotel Lago, she is learning how to move on. Agreeing to renovate a rental property in exchange for a new address is the next big step, but little does she know it will bring new friends and maybe romance. Her connection to the grieving Jeffrey Robbins is one thing, but her budding feelings for Jeffrey's friend, Ian, bring more changes and most importantly, big choices.

This is a book of struggles of all kinds. Most of them are resolved, but not all of them. Perhaps they will be in the next book in the series. The situations the characters face are very real. So you will find something you can relate to in this book, whether it's a hurricane or a broken relationship. Even though this is a Christian novel, to my way of thinking, the Christianity is shoved down your throat. You learn how broken people can and do find Christ. So if your relationship with The Lord ...more

This book Summer Storms by Rebekah Lyn is quite an excellent read. This is one of her first books and I think it is very good.
I always love books that have storms or tragedy in them and having two hurricanes in this one makes it fantastic.
I really came to love the characters and where they live and work. The description of the surrounding area is incredible.
I like how our own struggles and hardships can help out someone else who is going through similar circumstances. We never know what in our

I LOVED this story. It grabbed my attention from the first line and never let me go. I finished it in two evenings and was so upset when it ended, because I had really gotten caught up in the characters' lives. I grew up in Orlando and haven't been there for years, so it also hit close to my heart in that respect, besides that I have experienced much trauma and loss in my life, just like these characters. I liked the depth of the characters - even the smallest secondary characters became ...more

Excellent quick read. This is an amazing book that looks at several different aspects of relationships. The author does an excellent job of looking at how different people deal with grief, forgiveness, and friendship. It's the story of a young lady who works at a hotel and is shopping around for a house. She final finds one that is completely run down, but she can see the potential. The only problem is that she does not know how to do home repairs. This adventure in home repairs is what brings ...more

Summer Storms is an interesting read into the life of an Orlando resident who experienced the triple threat of hurricanes in 2004. As a former resident of Orlando who experienced that summer, I related to the struggles of that summer.

Rebekah Lyn does a good job in describing these struggles. It takes a bit to get into the book. Lyn gets caught up in the technical day-to-day activities and it slows the book. She tells a lot in this book rather than shows. However, you'll get caught up in wonderi

The Christian message is presented effectively through interaction of characters. The characters grew in faith during the story. The focus was on the developing relationships and the growing faith of a group of friends. The ending seemed a little abrupt to me.

For a good percentage of this book I thought I was going rate it 3 stars, but towards the end there was mentions of more intimate relationships with God so I changed it to a 3.5.

I wish I could have learned what happened between Mitchell and Jeremy. I was actually surprised when Ian and (?) got together in the end!

A good clean story.

"Summer Storms" is a fantastic novel. Rebekah Lyn has combined realistic situations with examples of choices we make and the consequences that can come from those choices, and wrapped it all up with the path to salvation. I would recommend this book whole-heartedly!

Good Christian story about a young woman and her life

I really found this story very interesting and had a good ending. This was a clean love story with a good love story without any of the usual sexuality that is the general rule. I would recommend this book to others.

Gospel truth

Pretty suspenseful with good development of believable characters. What I liked best was a clear Biblical presentation of how a person comes to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
