WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER is more mature than the previous two novels in the SUMMER series, the characters are grown up now and we get the chance to read about their college life.
Everything seems different, Cousins isn't a constant stay for summers anymore. In some ways characters moved on, built up their own lives, but they are still unconsciously circling around the same summer house, the memories of past summers and the same feelings that were suppressed or awakened so many years ago.
Belly isn't the girl who was surprised to be pretty and noticed anymore. I really enjoyed reading about her college life and new relationships. I liked seeing her as a young woman planning her future. She is as lovely as always, the only thing that bothered me was her denial, that she wouldn't trust her true feelings because she could get hurt.
As in book one and two the story is told from Belly's point of view. In this last instalment the elder Fisher brother, Conrad also gets to tell some parts of the story from his perspective. In the two previous books he has been an obscure, brooding character and it was my biggest pleasure to finally read about his thoughts and feelings. Former incidents and statements become clearer, his behaviour more comprehensible, which makes him only more appealing.
We also get to witness another side of younger Fisher brother Jeremiah. His actual behaviour shows that people change, no-one ever stays the way he was.
WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER adds further characters to our beloved character cast and develops relationships in a more reasonable way, sometimes at cost of personal admissions, true feelings and happiness.
Of course I got teary, in the end, I didn't want this series to end! The end was rash, decisions and confessions were made that led to a satisfying end. It was a pleasing end, but offered too few details.
I give it 4,5/5 stars.
Feel the summer spirit of Cousins one last time. See Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad define their future lives and be prepared for a great showdown! WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER is the last book in the SUMMER series and definitely a must-read!
