About the Book:
Book Title: On a Summer Tide
Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance
Release date: April 30, 2019
Sometimes love hurts–and sometimes it can heal in the most unexpected way.
Camden Grayson loves her challenging career, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. “Moving on” is Cam’s mantra. But there’s a difference, her two sisters insist, between one who moves on . . . and one who keeps moving.
Cam’s full-throttle life skids to a stop when her father buys a remote island off the coast of Maine. Paul Grayson has a dream to breathe new life into the island–a dream that includes reuniting his estranged daughters. Certain Dad has lost his mind, the three sisters rush to the island. To Cam’s surprise, the slow pace of island life appeals to her, along with the locals–and one in particular. Seth Walker, the scruffy island schoolteacher harbors more than a few surprises.
With On a Summer Tide, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher begins a brand-new contemporary romance series that is sure to delight her fans and draw new ones.

Oh-So-Maine Blueberry Buckle
Summer in Maine means plump, tart blueberries are everywhere. Here’s a family recipe that is nearly fool-proof….and so delicious! Especially with a scoop or two with vanilla ice cream.
Ever wonder how it got the name Blueberry Buckle? While the batter rises as it bakes, but the blueberries and crumb topping weigh it down. This causes the surface of the cake to buckle…hence the name.
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup soft butter
½ cup milk
2 cups sifted flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups drained blueberries
½ cup sugar
½ cup flour
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup softened butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix sugar and butter with egg. Stir in milk Sift together and stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Carefully blend in blueberries. Put on topping before baking. Pour in a greased and floured 9” square pan.
Bake 45-50 minutes.
My Review of On a Summer Tide:
On a Summer Tide is the first in a new series titled Three Sisters Island. It was a great introduction to the main characters: three sisters and their father as well as many minor characters that are really major characters because without them, it wouldn’t be a community or a story.
I love that we will get to discover more about the other sisters in the other books, but this book was focused on telling us the “behind the scenes” dynamics in the family as well as focusing on Cam, the eldest daughter. I also have three children, spaced apart as these girls are, and it was really neat to see how the dynamics affected them from the sibling level because I only see it from the parent view.
I loved the Scriptural/biblical themes surrounding the book. I loved the depth of the characters and one thing Pegg said really struck me: “Would you want to be judged today by your 19-year-old choices?” While I’m not 19 anymore, I have a child who is, and it was a great reminder that young adulthood is the time for mistakes, figuring out who you are, and as parents staying close by (without judgment) but encouragement and support when needed. I love when fiction gives me gentle reminders in my relationships.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. All opinions were strictly my own.
