All she has to do is prove that she's changed . . . completely.

This book is one that will stick with me for years to come. The characters are flawed, but so real. You get them. You laugh with them, cry with them, love with them and pray for that second chance with them. WIth music as the underlying theme, a wonderful but hurting hunky male lead and a beautiful albeit led astray heroine, Summer's Song is filled with romance, angst, hope, redemption and a message that will make your heart sing. If you're new to this author, I highly recommend Her Best Catch a ...more

It’s a comeback novel with strong premise: that God can take our ugly and broken and turn it into something beautiful.
Summer Sinclair has a name like music to go along with a flourishing career, but the one man she shouldn’t allow herself to love is the one person who could change her life completely for the better.
I loved Levi. Though I’m not sure that many female readers could read this book and not love him. He’s chivalrous, hunky, kind and caring, wanting the absolute best for Summer as sh

My Review
Summer has finally learned the negative impact her wild lifestyle has caused and the consequences have sent her into sobriety and isolation as she takes time to reflect on who she really wants to be. Being a celebrity has had its advantages, but she’s tired of the constant attention and wants to live a normal life with her 4 year old son, Sam. Learning about Christ has completely changed her outlook on life, but she is still obligated to make ONE more C

At first glance I thought this book was too "mod" for this old-fashioned gal! :-) It is written in first person, from a rock star's point of view. It's like a peep-behind-the-scenes-of-Hollywood or Nashville's neon lights. The true pain and hurt of stardom is uncovered in the main character, Summer, who "talks" to you through the book as if she's allowing you to read her thoughts. The more I read, the more I began to see that the message of the book was for everyone. The challenge to be "real", ...more

If the rating was out of 10, I would give this a 7 (3.5 stars). But I hate giving 3 stars. I liked the story and the characters. I think it could have used some editing out of half the kisses and Summer thinking about Levi and his kisses all the time. It became quite predictable that Levi would show up whenever Summer needed help out of a jam. What is he, an angel? Some other events seemed a little too convenient, too. Some of the info about the secondary characters was repetitious while others ...more

I really found myself enjoying this book the more that I read of it. I read almost the whole book in one sitting, if I didn't need sleep I would have finished it. I found the book to be surprisingly inspirational and it was so easy to feel a connection to the characters and their very real problems, questions, and worries. I feel like I had a really good understanding of Summer's troubles, but I constantly keep wanting to know more about Levi. The characters were well written, I felt the right f ...more

Summer’s Song is 208 pages of pure joy. Lindi Peterson possesses a true gift of storytelling. I was so caught up in the struggles of a recovering pop-star following God’s whispers to a better life, that I read 169 pages in one sitting. The heartwarming relationships between Summer, Levi, and God evolve naturally. The reader can’t help but feel completely invested in summer and Levi’s well-being. At the end of the story you’ll just want to hold this book close to your heart and sigh.

Oh I loved this book. This is a beautiful story about c changing your life for the better.It is about being judged based on the mistakes of your past but also being loved in all spite of that same past. There were times I wanted to reach through my kindle scream at a few of the characters. I am so excited to share this book with my friends and to read more books by Lindi Peterson.

I loved this. It is a Christian romance that truely centers on God in the characters lives and how that both brings them together and tears them apart. Anyone who enjoys watching Nashville could delight in this music industry romance.

I really enjoyed this book. Lindi is a great author. I love how she can make you feel how the character is feeling. It's a cute story as well.

Lindi Peterson's book, Summer's Song, was a light-hearted, feel good read. I was surprised by a couple of the twists in the story. It was an enjoyable, quick read.

Summer’s Song was a challenge for me, but in some ways a good one that allowed me to question what I believe as the norm. The novel is successfully written in alternating first person between the male and female protagonists. The reader spends most of the time in the head of the developing heroine Summer Sinclair, viewing the world through her disenchanted pop star eyes. No longer impressed by the glitz and glamour of stardom, Summer is an addict who has reached rock bottom and is slowly climbin ...more

I’m drawn to stories about women who’ve had a long, hard road down a self-inflicted sinful path, and Lindi Peterson’s Summer’s Song did not disappoint. It’s a nice story about redemption and overcoming, although I do believe it is for an older audience, and wouldn’t recommend it for teenagers.

As Summer spends private time meditating on her recent stint in recovery, she begins to question everything about the life she used to lead. I liked where Peterson started the book, with Summer unsure of wh

I loved Summer's Song and the progression of Summer, the main character, from a spoiled girl to a woman of substance. The path so many of us must take when we grow up. Lovely story, highly recommend it.

This book was kind of predictable but I really could relate to the main character and how she feels unworthy of love of man and of God.
