My review

This was an absolute delightful read with great characters, warm ocean, and a Victorian pier which has its own secrets.

Violet comes to Swallow Beach, to know more about her grandmother and her inheritance. She meets Calvin, and there is instant attraction. Her need to make bring the Arcade at the end of the pier alive, turns it into an adult themed artisan shops.

My second book by author Kat French, and A Summer Scandal became my Saturday night date. The story had love, lust, humor everything I needed in my date. There was a bit of mystery to keep the interest burning bright. A diary helped to bring the past into the present, a medium who summoned the dead grandmother’s spirit, an abusive husband, an errant wife all popped into my evening. My date sure knew how to keep me entertained. The entire book date night was like a warm hug to keep the heart filled with hope.

P. S. I know quite a bit about whips, floggers, cages, corsets, thanks to this book and Kat French.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Avon, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

My rating : 5 stars

About the Author

Kat lives in England with her husband, two little boys and two crazy cats. She loves all things romance – reading it, watching it, and most of all, writing it. Mildly addicted to wine and fairy lights.

She also writes steamy erotic romance as her USA Today bestselling naughtier alter-ego Kitty French.

Book blurb

When Violet moves to Swallow Beach, she inherits a small Victorian pier with an empty arcade perched on the end of it, and falls in love immediately. She wants nothing more than to rejuvenate it and make it grand again โ€“ but how?

When she meets hunky Calvin, inspiration strikes. What if she turned the arcade into an adult-themed arcade full of artisan shops?

Not everyone in the town is happy with the idea, but Violet loves her arcade and business begins to boom. But as tensions worsen and the heat between her and Calvin begins to grow, life at Swallow Beach becomes tricky. Is it worth staying to ride out the storm? And can Violet find her own happy ending before the swallows fly south for the winter?
