"A runaway winner! It is 5 am and I just finished reading! THE BEST IS YET TO COME has exceeded all my expectations! I had tears in my eyes while reading. I truly felt the love, the sense of community, and the strength of these characters." 5 stars from Karina 

Best friends. High school sweethearts. Passionate lovers. Once upon a time, Sarah Bartow and Calvin Vaughn were everything to each other. Until big dreams—and an even bigger tragedy—tore them apart. 

Ten years after good-bye, they're finally together again at Summer Lake in the Adirondacks...and the sparks between them are hotter than ever. Soon one kiss is turning into so much more. Not only breathtaking, sizzling lovemaking—but also deep, honest emotions that can't be denied.

Calvin refuses to let the ambitions and disasters that separated them a decade ago wreck them this time. Not when he knows for sure that Sarah is his one—his only—true love. He let her get away once. He won't make the same mistake again. Even if it means risking his entire heart, and every last piece of his soul, to show her they belong together now...and forever.

Return To Beloved Summer Lake

I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, The Best Is Yet To Come by Bella Andre.

I fell in love with Bella Andre's work with her first book in the Sullivan series, The Look Of Love, and that love has grown with each book of hers I've read. I've read other books she has written, besides the Sullivans and loved every one because they are so magnificently written. She is one of the few authors, whose books I will buy no matter how much they cost
(Don't tell my husband).

The Best Is Yet To Come is book #1 of The Summer Lake series, a spinoff of The Sullivans. It is the story of Calvin and Sarah's second chance at love. Ten years prior, Calvin was faced with a horrendous tragedy that no one should have to face and it almost destroyed him. Sarah was not there for Calvin when he needed her most and neither one of them has ever gotten over it. Now Sarah is back in Summer Lake for business and personal reasons that require her to see Calvin and she is hoping its doesn't blowup in her face. Seeing each other makes them both aware that they have unresolved issues between them that need to be addressed and dealt with before they can move on. It also becomes obvious that they still have feelings for each other besides anger, resentment and animosity.
Is there hope for a reconciliation between Calvin and Sarah? Can they let go of past hurts and open their hearts to love a second time? And what about the fact that Sarah is just in town for a couple weeks and plans to leave when her business is complete?

Spectacular second chance love!!!

Darn you Bella Andre, you made me cry!!!
Bless you Bella Andre, you took me deep enough into a book for a HUGE emotional cry!!! I do not know which story made me cry more Sarah and Calvin, or Olive and Carlos. What do I mean by “which story”? Sorry, you will need to read the book to find out.
I really LOVE the second chance love story of Calvin and Sarah. The angst of feelings throughout the whole story, wow! One of my favorite lines in the book: “It’s okay to be scared, pretty Olive. But life is unpredictable. Don’t wait too long to take a risk.” Well, that is the biggest hint I will be giving about the other story.
Thank you, Ms. Andre for this spectacular, emotional, thought provoking roller coaster ride of a story.
And after reading the sneak peek at the end, I cannot wait for Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, book 2 in this Summer Lake series.
I was gifted with a copy of this wonderful story for my honest opinion.
Bella Andre has yet again, penned a phenomenal story!!!
Thank you for reading my review.
