I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a honest review
Seven Seeds of Summer was an excellent book, it had a great plot,suspense, and a great love story. What was great about it was that we had time to get to know Summer and see the relationship bloom from her and her mysterious man. When tragedy strikes in Greece we feel for Summer, I really felt bad for her and wanted things to be ok for her. Pretty much once we get to Greece the action and suspense kicks in, the mystery of Hades and Persephone that was set up was great, I thought it was going to go one way but it when another that when you go back to the beginning of the book makes sense. The one thing that was a minor complaint was that when we get to the climax of the book it feels too rushed, it was almost like we should have saved that part of the book for a sequel, Ms. Gadoury wrote a wonderful story, that when I got the book I started reading it and finished it the same day, it was that good. I look forward to more from Ms. Gadoury.
