As a true Mallery fan I pick up the newest book the day it comes out and it is usually done before I can let myself sleep, I know she is a great writer of romance, but this is not a romance and I was prepared to be! Did Mallery prove me wrong once again as she proves that she can write so much more than romance and not let her readers down. This is a truly moving and poignant novel that will make new Mallery fans out of many new readers. Both Michelle and Carly are superbly written characters that will leaving you feeling torn about who to side with. Michelle is an army vet returning home to Blackberry Island after ten years, wounded both inside and out. She returns to take over her family's small Bed and Breakfast, a place that has been run while Michelle is away by her ex-best friend Carly. Carly is a single mother, the one who was left behind when Michelle ran away, to clean up and carry on. When fate and the bank insist that the two must work together to run the Inn these two will have to try to overcome old hurts, heal old wounds, try not to cause new ones and see how far they can push the other until it all comes crashing down. Now this is still a Susan Mallery novel so you have a dash of romance thrown in here and there but it is not your average boy girl story and it is almost better with more choices and not knowing who will end up together in the end....will there be a happily ever after? But for who? A must read.

Jeanette On target review! I of course had no doubt any book she wrote would be a winner but I was also shocked at how real Barefoot Season portrayed the characters and most of all, their feelings. Ms. Susan has never disappointed me yet!
