    This story rotates between the present and the past. It follows Marisol, a single mother, who is trying to save the historic gazebo in her home town. She uncovers an obituary about Violet Harcourt. Violet was a beauty queen who died tragically. Violet had a strong connection with Marisol’s grandfather and Marisol is determined to find out how strong!

    Mari, Violet, and Ricardo have a connection.

    No one knew about the connection until Mari decided to do some research.

    BOARDWALK SUMMER smoothly goes back and forth from 1940 to 2010.

    Violet is married, enters a beauty pageant in 1940, wins the pageant, but then relinquishes the win because only unmarried women are allowed to enter. She also gives up the crown because her abusive, controlling husband was furious. Violet then does a few unlikely and out-of-character things.

    Mari is an unmarried moth

    Boardwalk Summer is a lovely beach read full of family secrets. Alternating between the 1940's and the early 2000's, Boardwalk Summer is the story of Marisol's quest to save the historic gazebo on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. As she researches the rich history of the boardwalk, she uncovers some secrets hidden by her grandfather years ago. The story is filled with Old Hollywood and history of the Santa Cruz beach.

    I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for my honest review. I absolutely loved this story! I liked how the chapters alternated between Violet's story in 1940 and Marisol's story in 2007. It kept the story interesting and moved along nicely. I loved reading about the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. I have visited there several times and could picture it in my mind. The main characters were interesting and likeable. This was an easy and enjoyable read. A perfect summer story!

  • Sue

    This is a wonderful novel with a dual time line of modern day and 1940. I enjoyed both stories and loved the way that the author ended the novel.

    Marisol is a single mother living with her parents in Santa Cruz. As she is trying to find more about the history of her town for the historical society, she finds a picture of a woman who was trying to become an actress in 1940 but jumped to her death. There is a mystery behind Violet's death and when Marisol finds out that her beloved grandfather was

    This was a wonderful read but I will give you warning that there is spousal abuse, as well as unequal and threatening treatment of all minorities. Some of you have complained that I don't pride 'trigger warnings'.

    There was a dual timeline, but both tie into one another. In the summer of 1940, two friends have signed up for a beauty competition. Violet Harcourt doesn't expect to win, but surprise! She is crowned the winner with her friend the runner-up. The issue is that one needed to be a singl
