That's what Martha's Vineyard is to Annie Sutton now. After a winter spent writing her latest novel, Annie looks forward to a summer with friends who have become like the family she never had. But then her landlord announces that his grandson will be moving into her cozy Chappaquiddick cottage--and she'll be moving out. Year-round island housing is tough to find at any time; in summer, it's nearly impossible. Shaken by the thought of being forced to leave the people and the community she's grown to love, Annie seeks distraction in the July 4th celebrations--and stumbles upon a young woman who's unconscious on her front lawn . . . and barely alive . . . Summer on the Vineyard brings not only tourists, but also wealthy families with summer homes--like Fiona Littleton's--and tensions between them and the tight-knit island community often ignite. But when Annie's quick thinking saves Fiona's life, she's surprised to learn that like her, Fiona has no one to lean on. And when Fiona fears that someone wants her dead, Annie cannot walk away. With depleting resources and no home on the horizon, Annie is certain of only one thing: each of them will have to rise to one of life's greatest challenges: feeling at home within themselves . . .

    had been so looking forward to reading this book. The cover looked beautiful and the description sounded perfect. The book started off so well and I was really enjoying it but sadly it became very mundane and dragging on. Sadly it never caught me and pulled me back in again.

    A Vineyard Summer by Jean Stone is a cross between a cozy mystery and a family drama. Annie has felt alone for a long time, but over the winter, she has found a place for herself in Chappaquiddick Island on the Vineyard. She has finished her book and only needs to complete the editing. She has a boyfriend, and she enjoys spending time with him. His family has also embraced her and she is feeling positive about her life. Finding her birth mother also helped move beyond the loneliness. Of course w A Vineyard Summer by Jean Stone is a cross between a cozy mystery and a family drama. Annie has felt alone for a long time, but over the winter, she has found a place for herself in Chappaquiddick Island on the Vineyard. She has finished her book and only needs to complete the editing. She has a boyfriend, and she enjoys spending time with him. His family has also embraced her and she is feeling positive about her life. Finding her birth mother also helped move beyond the loneliness. Of course with the season starting, Annie knows seeing John, a detective will become more difficult with all the tourists. Little does she expect that he will have to leave the island for one of his children. Her landlord just told her that she had to leave her small cottage as a family member needs it and Annie is upset knowing finding a place on the Vineland this time of year is almost impossible. That is when she finds an almost dead bridesmaid on her side yard. All these events and more, mean Annie is spending more time trying to uncover a mystery and find a home, while tourists are flocking in for vacation than working on her book. The story’s facts are slowly leaked out as Annie asks questions and puts facts together. She would love to share it with John and ask for his help, but his absence becomes even more tenuous. The questions abound as more interesting things happen and facts become even more elusive. A Vineyard Summer by Jean Stone was an interesting read. I enjoyed the mystery and found myself hoping for a resolution to my liking. I found some of the twists hard to accept, but living in a small town where most everyone knows everyone and gossips is universal to all small towns. A Vineyard Summer is an interesting cozy mystery with lots of family drama to confuse and obscure the facts.

This was a really good story, when you think about the communities around Martha's Vineyard, you forget there little island around there that have both everyday people who live there year around and the summer vacationers. This story is about a writer who has decided that living in Chappaquiddick year around to write is wonderful, she has met a wonderful man who is a police officer, and his wonderful parents, then there are different community members there also. She was older when she met her birth mother and her half brother. They know have a great relationship. Her landlord has decided that she needs to move out of the guest cottage and that has put some stress on her, her boyfriend had to go out of town to deal with his ex-wife and their daughter, his mother is in charge of the Garden parade they have to raise money for schools and she has had a stroke, her landlord is having a wedding of his daughter at the house, and their neighbors daughter is found by Annie sick and have seizure next to her cottage. Know they need to figure out who did and why. I loved it.

Annie is a island resident who has just finished her most recent book. She loves her life on the island, has many friends and lives in a charming cottage. When her landlord kicks her out she is panicked that she will not be able to find housing in the exorbitant summer market. In the meantime she finds a women who was attacked and her quick thinking saved her life. The book moves into sleuth mode as Annie looks into the crime despite her precarious situation with housing and the pressure of marketing her novel . In the meantime tourists are arriving for the summer disturbing the long term residents and tempers are flaring. This is the perfect summer read with interesting charcters, a good sleuth and fast paced writing. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for the ARC. My opinion is my own.

    Loved to dive right into the follow up of A Vineyard Christmas to get to know Annie Sutton better and be introduced to other colorful characters of Chappy! Right in time to get me psyched for my visit to the island in just over a week. Thank you, Jean for another delightful read. I can't wait for book #3 in the trilogy. Maybe you'll give us some hints about what it's about when you are at the B&N store in Holyoke on the 20th of July.

    This is one of my favorite kinds of summer reads - a family drama/romance/mystery in an island setting ~ all the elements for a fun summertime novel! I enjoyed this opportunity to learn more about Annie and the residents of her little part of Martha's Vineyard. Lots of family drama kept the story going, and the mystery added another level of intrigue. I loved the ending and I'm looking forward to reading the next installment and seeing where it goes from here!

    She solve another mystery this one during the busy summer season on the Cape. See how a lost brother, poisoned bridesmaid and forgotten seafront property all rolls up for some good sleuthing for the main character and her good friends.
