    3.5 Stars THE SUMMER GUESTS is the first book I ve read by Mary Alice Monroe I know she s well known for her Beach House series, but I wanted to jump in with a summery standalone novel.As a Category 5 hurricane is barreling toward the coast of Florida and South Carolina, a mix of different people from the equestrian community, as well as their horses and several rescue dogs, evacuate to the safely of Grace and Charles Phillips farm in North Carolina As they ride out the storm together, each faces personal and interpersonal conflicts that must be resolved for them to move forward.I enjoyed how the cast of characters represented a range of age groups, from the early 30s to 60s The characters were strong, though some of their stories felt rushed given the large number of them The details of horses, horse riding, and the equestrian community were well researched Maybe a bit too...

    Being from Indiana we are right in the middle of tornado country where you basically just cross your fingers or pray tornadoes don t pop up or if they do they don t do too much damage Hurricanes aren t something that happens where I am however I have had a couple of close vacation calls with Sandy and Matthew down in Florida so I couldn t help but be curious when a storm is at the heart of this story.The Summer Guests by Mary Alice Monroe is a women s fiction or chick lit read that focuses on several characters who need to escape the path of an oncoming hurricane But, not only do these people need shelter for the storm they also need a place to transport their animals where they will be safe so Grace and Charles Phillips who live in North Carolina have opened up their farm to these friends and strangers alike along with their horses.This novel actually started out rather strong in my opinion with some great tension from the impending hurricane and slowly starting to introduce the various characters invol...
