A Stardance Summer by Emily March is a 2017 St. Martin’s Press publication

A very pleasant summertime book!

Lili Howe impulsively joins the Tornado Alleycats- an all -female camping group- after she is fired from her job and her family doesn’t step up to defend her honor.

Upon arrival at the Stardance Ranch, she is stunned to find the camp is being managed by her brother’s best friend, Brick Callahan, who also happens to be her very first crush.

Making things even more awkward, Lili is all too a

As I marked Stardance Summer by Emily March on Goodreads as currently reading, I noticed it was #13 in the series. How did we get that far in this romantic series I love so much. The time has sped by. These books are an auto read for me, and I love every visit to Eternity Springs where the inimitable Celeste, the 'angel' watches over all - especially would be couples, who need a little push and shove to find themselves, heal and reach out to true love.

This time it is Liliana who flees to Eternit

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

When Liliana goes to her parents for emotional support and they shut her down, she decides a life shake-up is in order. She joins the all women's group the Tornado Alleycats and takes off on a camping trip with them. Except, she doesn’t get to fully escape as the owner of the camp turns out to be Mark "Brick" Callahan, her brother's high school best friend and

A very well written romance. I loved the storyline and the setting. My first book by this author and I enjoyed her writing. I must read more books in this series.

I received an ARC via Netgalley and this is my unbiased review.

What a delightful find! I'm always so thrilled when I discover a 'new to me author' who I so enjoy and I realize has a treasure trove of other books just waiting for me. This was my experience reading Emily March's latest, A Stardance Summer. This is thirteenth in the Eternity Springs Series, but new readers can totally jump in and feel right at home with these characters. One chapter in and I knew I'd be reading many, many more in this series, as well as other Emily March titles.

I love Eternity Springs and couldn't wait to return with Brick and Lili. The journey towards their HEA wasn't easy for Brick, because he wanted to stand by his RULES and since she was his best friends, little sister meant she was off limits. But sometimes your heart knows what it knows and you can't help who you fall in love with. As for Lili, she has loved him since she was 9 years old, but at some point and time she is going to have to face the facts and probably move on.

In this book, we get

A STARDANCE SUMMER captures the array of emotions that come with struggling to find yourself, letting go of a dream and starting afresh; and Eternity Springs has a proven track record as the perfect place for healing and new beginnings, especially for those who have lost their way or have completely given up. This is the perfect summer read for any fan of contemporary romance or women's fiction.

Liliana Howe comes from a family of overachievers and has always struggled to measure up. At a crossro

This was my first Emily March book. Yep, I jumped in at book 13 LOL Was I lost with the characters from previous books? A little bit. Did it take away from my enjoyment of this? Not at all. It made me want to go back and read the stories of all the wonderful citizens of Eternity Springs.

Lili has come to Eternity Springs after some horrible, false, stuff went down with her at work. She comes to meet up with her friend Patsy and Patsy's camping group. These ladies seem like a whole bunch of fun! I

Favorite Quotes:

She’d never expected to be the wronged character in a real-life novel.

She could possibly face the powers that be at the firm. She might even be able to hold her own while presenting her case to the cops. But Tiffany Lambeau? Forget about it. Some parts of high school a girl simply couldn’t leave behind.

They made out like high school kids beneath the bleachers. At least, Lili guessed that this was what making out beneath the bleachers would have been like. She’d never had the expe

Eternity Springs is a place of healing. It gives hope and a fresh start to those who have lost their way. Having read a number of books from this series, I am blown away by the sense of nostalgic serenity, Ms. March conveys as she spins a tale that walks the line between hope and hopelessness. A quest of self - discovery and finding courage to start anew makes for a trek that is powerful and true.
Lisa - (Aussie Girl)
I've read all the Callihan books (written under Geralyn Dawson) and all the Eternity Springs novels as well. To be honest, I much preferred her writing under her previous name, the Eternity Springs series is a little too inspirational for me. However, Miss Dawson/March is a skilled writer and the combination of the characters and the community heart of this small town in Colorado keeps me coming back for more.
 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)
If one is looking for a quick, sweet contemporary romance, this will fit the bill. The girl who one didn't expect to get the guy does. But most importantly, she finds herself and realizes she is happy in her own skin.

Another fabulous episode in one of my favorite places on earth….Eternity Springs. And yes, I am aware this only exists in Emily March’s imagination but I am so happy that she takes us there periodically. I often wish Eternity Springs were a real place so we could all go visit and have our own story. I would love to meet Celeste. Emily March takes my two favorite series of hers, The Callahans and Eternity Springs, and although they have overlapped before, this time gave us more. Brick Callahan, o ...more

'A Stardance Summer' BY Emily March is book 13 in the "Eternity Springs" Series. I have been jumping in and out of the series so for me this can easily be a standalone series. Just as the other books I have read this was a sweet romance that warmed your heart! I cannot recommend this book enough if you are looking for a sweet and easy read. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
Claire Mc Partlin
I'm certainly on a roll with good books recently as this was another wonderful, summery, feel-good book that I really enjoyed. I've read a couple of the earlier 'Eternity Springs' books a few years ago but somehow seemed to lose track of the series with all the other books around, but I shall definitely be going back to catch up with the previous books now.

This book was about Lilli and Brick (or Mark). Lilli has recently lost her job and been treated really badly at the firm she used to work for

Emily March takes me back to one of my favorite fictional towns in the latest edition of her Eternity Springs series.

Brick Callahan enjoys the chaos at his campground, Stardance Ranch, especially after the Tornado Alleycats arrive for an extended summer stay. But when he discovers Liliana “Lili” Howe among the Alleycats, he fears he's in for a summer of trouble. Betrayed by those she trusted, Lili decides she's put her career first for too long and heads t

Copy received via Netgalley for an honest review

This is the first Emily March book I have read, so coming in 13 books into a series did make things a little bit difficult for me at times

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it, but things flew right over my head.

I did mostly like Lilliana and her summer of self discovery, however I felt that the reason why she ran away for the summer was left behind at the beginning and forgotten until right at the end. It was a pretty big thing that happened and then

There is a lot going on in this book. It opens with Lili Howe going to her parents for help with a problem she is having and them being dismissive towards her. They come around very much later in the story but you get the feeling that is the way she has always felt.

After a miserable encounter with her unsupportive parents, all Lili Howe did was to take a chance, jump onto the lake with the Tornado Alleycats, and soon she found the man she'd been hopelessly in love with since she was a child.

After assuring the honeymooners that they're in a safe ranch, all Brick Callahan needed was peace and quiet, and soon he was looking at a pair of shimmery long legs and a beautiful woman who was once tall and gangly when she was a child.

All they needed was to reconnect

Lili Howe comes from a world of high expectations, and privilege, and even though that is how she has been raised, it's never really stuck to her, not something she wants to identify with. But for her parents sake she gave it a shot, got a job with a prestigious CPA Firm, and gave it her all, but somewhere along the line she lost her way, and lost her job to boot. So, now she is doing things her way for a change, she wants to reinvent herself, and thinks that the perfect way to do that is to joi ...more

Brick and Lillianna's story is oh so fun to read. Every time I return to an Eternity Springs story it mesmerises me with it faith, love and Angel dust. You have to read the books in the series to experience the angel dust and serenity of Eternity Springs.
Brick like the name suggests is our hard headed, hot hero. He is one of those guys who is a commitment phobe yet he dates and is friends with every woman around him. Lilianna is growing up and breaking out of her shell. From being her childhood

A Stardance Summer by Emily March is a very fun but realistic read. Liliana, known as Lily, is a sensible and hard-working person from Oklahoma. In eighth grade, she wanted Christopher, her brother Derek's friend, to notice her instead of her nemesis Tiffany.

Years later, at age 30, she feels really dissatisfied with her life and has a difficult relationship with her conservative and unsupportive parents. There's also a scandal at her job.

This book was a delight and a joy to read. When I voluntarily accepted an advanced review copy, I didn't realize that it was part of a series. Then, as I got into the story, certain characters and places reminded me of a quirky town from another book that I read last year, and checking showed me that I was taking another trip to Eternity Springs. I enjoyed watching Lili use her time with the Tornado Alleycats to figure out the kind of person she wanted to be and what she really wanted from the r ...more

I recommend this contemporary romance for a delightful summer read. I look forward to read more of the Eternity Springs series.
