5+ shining stars!

Enchanting, colorful, sparkling, romantic, well-crafted, endearing, heartwarming, wondrous and beautiful.
"I think that spending a summer in you company, masquerading as your betrothed, would be rather...adventurous."
Sometimes ít's more difficult to write a review for a book you really loved. Nothing you say can really convey how fantastic the book was! And you don't want to spoil anything, beacuse the discovery was such a treat. This book was just that. I am so excited to hav

I absolutely loved this book! Right from the start, Ms. Balogh's writing enchanted (there isn't another word for it) me and, before I knew it, I was in love with both Kit and Lauren. :)

This was not a story full of action, escapades and mysteries to be solved. It didn't take me into an emotional rollercoaster that ended up leaving me happily drained at the end. It was, pure and simple, a love story about two people who, at first, seemed ill-suited but couldn't have been more right to each other.
Kit Butler has been ordered to take up the reins deemed by his family and marry, wanting to thwart his father’s plans for a his marriage and when a wager is set between him a his fellow friends to marry the coldest and most proper woman of the season in a short amount of time, Kit is surprised when this woman he’s out to marry sets him a new wager.

This was a very well-written book with layers. Kit seems like a carefree scapegrace who goes through life not caring for much, but he's very tortured inside. He cares very deeply, and blames himself for the death of his brother, who was originally the heir. His family blames him too. Lauren has had to pretend that she is not devastated about her broken engagement and the embarrassment it caused her when he fiance leaves her at the altar when his long lost wife returns (One Night For Love).

I felt quite sorry for Lauren when I was reading One Night for Love, after all it wasn't her fault that the man she was about to marry already had a wife and being left at the altar would be rather humiliating for anyone! So, I was glad when I found out we were getting to read her story next and I think I ended up enjoying A Summer to Remember even more than the first book.

After having her heart broken Lauren has pretty much given up on the idea of love and marriage, instead s

É o segundo livro que leio da Mary Balogh e, apesar de ter gostado bastante de ambos, sobretudo do facto de ambos os protagonistas do Uma Noite de Amor e o protagonista masculino deste último terem lutado na Guerra Peninsular, aqui no nosso Portugal. Por um lado fiquei deleitada com essa menção, por outro tive pena de não haver qualquer referência a uma batalha histórica, a um General, a um local em específico. A autora não aprofundou muito isso, nem sequer para introduzir um bocadinho que fosse ...more

I loved it! I can't wait to continue the series.
Almost 4.5 Stars

Kit Butler, Viscount Ravensberg, had led a full life. His looks could charm most women. His high jinks had followed a fun-loving lifestyle. Money was never a problem. Until now. His father expected him to marry. Soon. So as far as he was concerned, it was a necessary wager. He needed a bride, so what would it hurt if he made some money at the same time? He bet his friends that he could win Miss Edgeworth's hand in marriage by the last week in June. That gave him less than six wee

Kit and Lauren are a wonderful match - the laughing rogue and the prim stickler (4.5 stars)

I am rereading all of Balogh's Bedwyn series and since A Summer to Remember introduces the family and features Freyja Bedwyn so prominently, I thought it would be perfect to read it before rereading Slightly Scandalous (her story and Book 3 of the Bedwyn Series). I read it in one day and loved it as much as the first time I read it. Watching Kit be scandalous and tease Lauren in the first half of the novel

Se já tinha ficado agradada com o primeiro volume, posso dizer que este segundo livro da autora é muito melhor que o primeiro. Para já, e na minha opinião, a história da Lauren tem muito mais potencial do que a história de Lily, pessoalmente, quando li o livro, não simpatizei muito com esta, e durante toda a leitura não pude deixar de sentir pena e uma atenção especial pela Lauren, que se viu abandonada no dia mais feliz da sua vida.

I'd been avoiding reading this novel for some time because I really didn't want to read about Kit. I felt really bad for Frejya when I read her novel and I totally didn't want him getting his HEA (which is ridiculous, I know, because he got his novel first). Funny thing is, I ended up liking him a lot more and this book actually made me dislike Frejya. She came off extremely petty and annoying and childish, and I'm just glad I read her book first because I don't think I would've wanted to read i ...more

I wanted to read A Summer To Remember after reading One Night For Love for one reason only: Miss Lauren Edgeworth. I wanted to see how Mary Balogh fleshed her out, whether there was more than just a jilted bride with an overdeveloped perfection complex and latent passive aggressive tendencies. Oh yes. She was more, but to be honest the journey to get to the heart of Lauren was as slow as molasses flowing on a cold winter morning.

Re-read in January 2016

5 Stars

One of my goals in 2016 is to re-visit some of my favorite books and review them for the blog. I know that I am a very different reader than I was when I originally read these books and I am intrigued to see whether they hold up. I am also going to use re-reads to help me get through a reading slump rather than just slogging through books that I am not interested in.

Terminada a leitura de mais um livro desta maravilhosa autora fico satisfeita por constatar que as minhas primeiras impressões acerca do livro anterior estavam correctas. Não só estes livros cativam pelas suas personagens como também pelo ambiente pitoresco no qual se passa a acção. Este foi um livro que acabou por me surpreender bastante, sem querer entrar em spoilers confesso que anteriormente a personagem Lauren pareceu-me um pouco apagada e quase sem vontade própria.

Again, this is a matter of reading the series in order. Already reading the 'Slightly' series, I have a tender spot for Freyja, even if she was meanspirited, so any antagonism was actually ignored.

The H/h are complete opposites, Kit is adventurous and scandalous while Lauren was mild-mannered and controlled. But they are both in a similar situation, Kit was rejected by a love 3 years ago, for his now-dead older brother and Lauren was left at the alter when her groom's wife appeared out of nowhe

I really wanted to read another book by Balogh my library did not have anything that I had not read, on the shelf, other than this one.

I don't know, maybe if I had read this one in the order that it was written I may have enjoyed it more?
I don't know. I could not like Lauren or Kit. I found Lauren to be too self-possessed and cool for my liking. I also really liked Freya, in her book in the "Slightly" series and somehow, that kept me from really being pleased with Kit and Lauren.

Só ganhei embalagem para o ler após ter “ouvido/lido” algumas opiniões que o consideravam melhor que o primeiro e que era bem agradável. Devo confessar que desta vez fiquei surpreendida e é realmente mais interessante que o anterior.

Gostei bastante do enredo. Adorei o pouco cavalheiresco Kit Butler e o contraste que faz com a controladissima Lady Lauren, neste caso, acenta bem o ditado que refere que os opostos se atraem e se completam. Kit precisava de encontrar a calma na sua vida e reconcilia

(4,5 estrelas!)

A dor é uma arma poderosa, um casulo que nos esconde do mundo, que nos camufla na multidão e que nos permite reservar o que de melhor temos, o que de melhor somos, para aquelas pessoas, raras excepções, que acreditamos serem verdadeiras. Mas é o ressentimento, que nem bala cortante, o que nos realmente corta a voz, o que nos transforma em meros corpos desprovidos de vida, desprovidos de vontade, desprovidos de amor e alegria...

Mary Balogh con questo romanzo, il suo secondo che leggo, è stata una magnifica conferma. Amo il suo modo di scrivere, di catturarmi in un mondo ottocentesco impeccabile pieno di passione, di intrecci, di personaggi intriganti e di amori forti e impossibili.
Il suo modo di scrivere romance mi attrae come una calamita e continuerò a leggere altri suoi lavori con grande entusiasmo.
La storia di Un'estate da ricordare è deliziosa, un crescendo di situazioni, di eventi e di sentimenti che portano all'

Kit is a carefree rogue. He is no gentleman. Lauren is a proper lady, frigid with propriety.
Two people could not be more opposite.
There are plenty of reviews to give the complex tale of how they form a false betrothal so I won't
go into that.
I will say though, I learned that each have a carefully crafted mask to hide their deep wounds.
In the beginning, I had a huge dislike for Lauren. I'm not sure I've ever run into a heroine that was SO uptight.
But I grew to LOVE her. Watching her unravel and

This is one of my favorite Mary Balogh novels -- the summer setting and the playful hero make it a little more like a modern love story!

I LOVED this book! Kit and Lauren were so perfect for one another. It was so nice to see Lauren get her happily ever after, after being jilted at the alter in the previous book One Night for Love. And Kit.. ah, Kit. He was so fun-loving and witty and such a charmer, but we also saw a deeper side to him and Lauren was his perfect match to help him work through his problems.

Once again Mary Balogh did an outstanding job in transporting me to another time, another place in this BBC/period film-esque

Mirror, mirror, on the wall... "Who is the dullest, most prudish, most straitlaced, most respectable of them all?" (p.18)

Answer: Lauren Edgeworth.

When I imagine a romantic heroine, she's witty, insouciant, bold. She reflects my passionate and libidinous 'id'. Under the right circumstances, with the right hero, she can be brazenly wanton.

What I do not imagine is someone who would describe herself thus:
"I am not a person made for wild, passionate emotions or for vivid happiness." (p.79) Say wha

Lauren Edgeworth foi educada para ser uma dama. A sua fama é ilustre, tal como deverá ser a reputação de uma verdadeira dama - atolada em compostura e gestos de grande graciosidade.
Kit, visconde de Ravensberg, é um libertino com atroz desrespeito pelo decoro social. Escandaloso como só ele sabe ser, perpetra as mais extravagantes indiscrições… que lhe granjeiam, claro, uma reputação pior que péssima na elitista sociedade inglesa.

Gostei tanto deste segundo! Mais do que do resto da série, excepto o Ligeiramente Casados que por ter sido o primeiro do género que li me ficou marcado.
Gostei da personalidade da protagonista, mesmo com os seus pontos negativos, e da sua transformação.
Gostei dos momentos românticos, embora o protagonista masculino tenha ficado mais para segundo plano a autora não descurou a resolução dos problemas que o atormentavam.
Gostaria de ter visto algo mais relativamente aos dotes de Lauren para contar

More like a 3+. An emotional read. It took a little while to warm up to Lauren, who was a prim and proper emotional iceberg of a lady initially. Even by the end, I didn't "bond" with her character, but I recognize the strength of Balogh's characterization and the character's motivation in cultivating this rigid gentility for so long. A good story and an ultimately fulfilling read, even if it's a bit slow to get off the ground.

On a side note, I maintain my first impression of the Bedwyns as unpl
This is a beautifully written book. From start to finish. I was expecting a more lighthearted story and recieved a very deeply moving one instead. Kit a war hero with a love for life and doesn't care what specticule he makes or where he makes it, or so it seems. Lauren, miss prim and proper who is afraid to live life at all. They come across each other in Hyde Park where Kit is fighting riffraff for the honor of a milkmaid. Can this be fate. My favorite line: "Come on, you buggers". It makes me ...more
