Blog Tour - Summer Island Festival by Rachel Burton


When Willow walks out on her own wedding, there's only one place she can go...

Growing up in the island village of Seaview, Willow always dreamed of a bigger life. Then her childhood sweetheart Luc betrayed her and she ran, resolving never to look back. Now, twelve years on, her glamorous London life is a mess and the island is her only option.

But she's not the only one back for the summer. Luc is now a world-famous heartthrob musician, and he's finally come home to headline the Isle of Wight's annual music festival.

As Willow untangles her messy past, she stumbles on a secret that could destroy her family, the island's fragile community - and her second chance at love...



I love a rock and roll type who is really a big softy, and this is what you get in this introspective story - twice over!

You also get a lovely setting (why Willow ever wanted to leave is beyond me!) and lots of soul-searching and heartache, as told from the dual perspective of a daughter and her mother. I'm not really into music much, but I felt the love of it running through the entire book, and the atmosphere generating by playing on stage and the build up to the festival itself was wonderful.

You get two stories for the price of one with this book, until the dual tales are woven together at the end to make a delightfully satisfying conclusion.

About the Author

Rachel Burton has been making up stories for as long as she can remember and always dreamed of being a writer until life somehow got in the way.
