Denise Hunter’s “Barefoot Summer” Summer Sun Giveaway!

Madison’s heart has been closed for years. But one summer can change everything.

In the years since her twin brother’s drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian in their riverside town, the loss still haunts her.

To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother’s dream of winning the town’s annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast.
Beckett O’Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help—and he’ll give it, because he owes her far more than she’ll ever know.
Madison will do anything—even work with the infamous Beckett O’Reilly—to reach her goal. And as much as she’d like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart.
But Beckett harbors a secret that will test the limits of their new love. Can their romance survive summer’s challenges? And will achieving her brother’s dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?

MY REVIEW-Excellent book that was entertaining and yet thought provoking. A clean sweet romance that I would feel comfortable giving to anyone. The christianity is minimal and not preachy. But it is definitely there. The main character is Madison. She is a twin who lost her brother Michael several years before. It is very heartbreaking reading her story. But one thing Michael always wanted to do was sail a boat in the Regatta. And so she plans on winning it. Even if she doesn't know how to swim:) Madison signs up to take lessons from a professional but he needs to leave for different jobs. Turns out the one who ends up teaching her how to sail is Beckett. The bad boy from school who has now turned into a very handsome man. Of course, he also broke her sisters heart so she won't even think about acting on the feelings he invokes. 

The story line is very good and I finished this in one day. Really pulls you into the story to find out what happened that fateful day her brother died, why her sister really left, and what will happen between Madison and Beckett. Loved it and can't wait for the next one!
