This is a sweet second chance love story. It was different reading a book where the female left the male and broke his heart. Unfortunately Faith started having panic attacks because she felt she needed to be perfect. I can’t imagine what Faith went through when she left Mitch without telling him why and moving to Chicago. It broke my heart that a man preyed on Faith when she was in a bad place. The good thing that came out of that marriage was her daughter Hope. I was glad Faith decided she nee ...more

I absolutely loved it! This is a well-written, second chance romance that i never wanted to put down. It had heartache and pain and hope and forgiveness and it warmed my heart so many times.

Perfect Summer is set in the adorable small town of Mason Creek. Faith and her daughter, Hope, move back after Faith left town a decade ago, with no explanation whatsoever to Mitch, or even a good-bye.

So imagine the tension and awkwardness when they run into each other often around town. The author did a gr

*3 ½ Star*

The Mason Creek Series is a small town romance standalone series. If you’re looking for all the swoony heartwarming vibes and a series full of second chances look no further and give this series a try! The next book on my list is Perfect Summer by Bethany Lopez. Because Bethany Lopez is a new to me author, I’m not sure what I’m getting myself into, but given the single mother and second chance nature from the blurb, I’m ready for an epic All The Feels moment!

In My Own Words:

Perfect Summer: A Mason Creek Novel by Bethany Lopez. After 10years, Mitch still has yet to move on- WOW that’s a long time. And with Faith back in Mason Creek old feelings start stirring with new ones mixed in. These two cannot avoid each other or the feelings that still linger. Second chances could mean a much-deserved HEA or more devastation- are they willing to take the chance? The author does a good job keeping you vested in the story and outcomes. This book is filled with drama, personal c ...more

Cute, small town romance.

This one is a second chance romance set in Mason Creek which is a typical small town where everyone knows everyone. Faith left town without warning after high school and has obviously moved on if her young daughter, who is a complete cutie pie, is any indication. Mitch stayed and has been closed off to love ever since.

They each need to face each other's truths in order to heal. There is some added drama, but overall a cute romance with a small town feel.

I need to move to Mason Creek, it's absolutely perfect. I can't get enough of these stories and this one was absolutely brilliant. I loved Faith and Mitch so much and little Hope is absolutely adorable. Their story had enough to keep you interested and desperately waiting for more. A perfect read. ...more

I love second chance and single mom romances so this had the perfect combination. Faith and Mitch took my heart along with her little girl just stole the show. I love that the story moves quickly but gives us enough feelings to understand the characters. The path to a second chance is not easy and I love how the author wove the story.

I'm so happy that Mitch waited for Faith (and now Hope). The population of Mason Creek is growing and Hope is going to be thrilled to be the big sister.
Love can sometimes be waylaid but never deterred.
Is anyone else hoping for the Kindergarten teacher romance that features Parker, Jillybean, and Hope?

Second chances and new beginnings. That’s what Faith and Mitch got with this story. Faith has had it in her head that she needed to be perfect. All that worry and drive to perfection led to a spiral into panic attacks. All that she promised Mitch seemed too daunting and she left Mason Creek for Chicago. A marriage, a child, and a divorce later, Faith and her daughter Hope return to Mason Creek after her ex-husband passes away. It’s inevitable she would run into Mitch in their small town. The con ...more

I'm a sucker for a small town and single parent romance. I'm so glad I read this one. I love a great second chance romance as well. Mitch and Faith were high school sweethearts and that golden couple. Now Faith is back in Mason creek with her daughter for a fresh start. Faith's daughter Hope is so adorable. She's going to steal your heart right off the bat. Then the scenes with her and Mitch are going to have your ovaries exploding. They are such precocious moments. It made my heart so
This series is just the best! I’ve read all of them so far and the 7th one is just as good as the 1st one. They’ve all ranged from 4 star reads to 5 stars! And I’m finding all these new to me authors! Perfect Summer is the first book I’ve read by Bethany Lopez. It was about Faith and Mitch. They were the popular high school couple until Faith breaks it off suddenly with Mitch and moves away. She returns years later with her cute as a button daughter, Hope. We met Faith briefly in the previous bo ...more

Loved this book!!!!

I think I have said this from Book 1 going up to this Book Number 7....I love this series. I enjoy series because I like knowing what goes on in everyone's lives that are mentioned. Faith, Mitch and Hope make a beautiful family. Faith and Mitch were in love while in school. Faith left home after graduation, breaking Mitch's heart. She married another man, had their daughter and was in a very abusive marriage. He died, she returned home. They go through a lot of trials and trib

Returning to Mason Creek is a double edged sword for Faith. On one hand she wants to raise her daughter in the hometown that brought her so much happiness growing up but on the other, coming home means crossing paths with Mitch. Can the man she once loved open up his life to her again? Or will the reunion bring more devastation to them both? With a storyline that had me tearing up, this was a great read. Bethany Lopez has a knack for bringing real life characters into the hearts of her readers. ...more

Perfect Summer is a sweet second chance romance about heartbreak, revelations and finally getting the chance with the one that has always owned your heart. Mitch and Faith takes on a journey of forgiveness, apologies and so many heartfelt moments. These two bring romance in plenty and gives us a little drama with a huge side of chemistry. A beautiful love story that has sparks, sweetness and a forever that leaves your heart full.

I was so needing this sweet with a bit of steam book. I have been following and enjoy reading books by Bethany Lopez. This was a second chance romance that made me smile and had a few heartfelt moments. It was almost too perfect. I wish it had been longer with more details to make it more real. I love small town romances though. Worth the read.

I am so glad that Faith got a story in this series. She is one of my favorite characters. My heart really went out to her. I know what panic attacks can do to you. Her life was very real for me. Her love story was amazing

If you are in the mood for something small towns, and sweet - then Perfect Summer from Bethany Lopez is just the right read for you! I liked the character that needed a second chance after splitting a few years ago. And what surprised me nicely - the girl is not the one with a broken heart (the one evident!). Maybe Mason Creek is just for you!

Perfect summer with a twist

A failed marriage allows Faith to bring her and her daughter, Hope back to her hometown. Once there Faith and Mitch rekindle their young love to explore where their feelings may have aged. This is a sweet story with cameos by a whole lot of Mason Creek characters that also makes perfect sense as a stand alone book. But read the whole series, you won't be disappointed!
