Three best friends, all with the same birthday, are about to turn forty. They plan to share this momentous occasion together at a summerhouse in Maine, taking stock of their lives and loves, their wishes and choices. But none of them expect the gift that awaits them at the summerhouse: the chance for each of them to turn their "what might have beens" into reality....




  • I just don't get why people are raving about this book. Seriously, it's hands down one of the worst reads ever. The author's writing style is like stepping into a time machine, but not in a good way. It's so old-fashioned and over the top, I felt like I was being transported to a different era. Absolutely dreadful.
  • You can always count on Jude Deveraux to deliver an engaging story, and 'The Summerhouse' is no exception. I must admit that I overlooked this gem when it was first released, but it turned out to be the perfect choice for a relaxing summer read or a thrilling listen.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The narrator was immensely entertaining and had a very nice listening voice, as well as doing different voices for the characters. It was a very pleasant story about three friends and how their lives progress. Highly recommend!
  • This book was just ok for me. I enjoyed it to an extent but It didn't keep me sucked in at all times. The storyline has so much potential but there's very little character development so you don't really connect with any of the characters. I didn't like the reader either. She has a whispery voice. A bit annoying.
  • This book was interesting enough to take my mind off the commute but even though I finished it the day prior to writing this review, I can hardly remember anything interesting about the book. The end was a bit too far-fetched for me. I know these types of books are meant to be fantasy-like but this went a bit far. There was nothing in this book that grabbed me by the heart strings and kept me hoping for more.
  • Jude Deveraux is able to create a poignantly written account that makes you appreciate the true friendships you have made in life. This book made you, made you cry, and gave you hope. Fast read- especially nice for the summertime.
  • This was interesting and quite a concept. Definitely something that we may have thought of in our lives if only it were possible. Good character development on 2 of the 3 characters but lacking on one I thought.
