We're launching the Book Tour for SUMMER'S END by Olivia Miles!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Author Interview

What inspired you to write Summer’s End?

Each summer my family visits Mackinac Island in Michigan. It’s one of my favorite places and so inspiring. Every time we go, I admire the old homes and imagine their history. While this type of thinking is what led me to write the first Evening Island book (Meet Me at Sunset), it also inspired the character of Andrea in Summer’s End, as well as the circumstances that led to the Taylor sisters reuniting for a couple life-changing weeks.

What do you love the most about this story?

Because I was so inspired by the large, historic homes, I loved to think that the house itself could change a family. Although the sisters have each gone their separate ways as adults, they all share the same fond memories and connection to their summer house, which ultimately allows them to come together again, both in the physical and emotional sense.

What challenged you about writing it?

I wrote a large part of this book during the pandemic, when my place of inspiration felt very distant and at times, unreachable. I certainly had to stretch my imagination to channel the wonderful world that is Evening Island while essentially locked down, in winter, in my office.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

There’s a piece of me in all of my characters, but my personality is most similar to Heather in this book. Like Heather, I’m creative by nature and more than a bit of a homebody. Though I haven’t experienced Heather’s struggles, I’m prone to react as she did to personal setbacks.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I’d hope that readers find an escape in this book. The island itself is an escape for the sisters in this book, and the house is a haven. It’s nice to think that there is one place you can go where all your problems feel just a little smaller. Sometimes, we can’t get away like that in the physical sense, and that is the wonderful thing about reading.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

I’m sure it will come as no surprise that my favorite pastime is reading. I also love spending time with my dogs and walking along the lakefront near our house.

Summer's End
(Evening Island #2)
By Olivia Miles
Women's Fiction, Romance
Paperback & ebook, 201 Pages
July 13, 2021 by Rosewood Press

The USA Today bestselling author of the Oyster Bay series invites readers to return to Evening Island for a heartwarming, stand-alone story about three sisters at very different crossroads in their lives who reunite for one unforgettable summer at their family's lake house.

The Taylor sisters spent every summer at their family’s lake house, but as they grew up, they also grew apart. Now, in honor of their late mother’s wishes, they reunite on Evening Island, each hoping to find the best part of themselves they’d left behind.

Kim is just weeks away from what should be her dream wedding, but as the big day draws closer, her doubts only grow stronger. Some time away may be just the thing she needs to help clear her head…or change her heart.

Heather has always been the reliable sister, but a recent divorce has made everything feel uncertain. When a second chance with an old flame comes along, she must decide if a summer love can last a lifetime.

Andrea’s career is her top priority, even if her heart is no longer in it. When her boss suggests a vacation, a couple of weeks on the island leads to the inspiration she was searching for, and not just for work…

Thanks to the beauty of the island and the memories they share, the sisters come together, search their hearts, and discover what the future holds for each of them at summer’s end.

Other Books in the Series

Meet Me at Sunset
(Evening Island #1)
By Olivia Miles
Women's Fiction/Romance
Paperback & ebook, 324 Pages
February 25, 2020 by Rosewood Press

From USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Miles comes the first in a collection of stand-alone novels set on the fictional shores of Evening Island—just a ferry ride across the lake from Blue Harbor, home to the newest heartwarming series!

The Morgan sisters spent many blissful summers at their family's lake house growing up, but as they grew older, their lives took very different paths.

Hope adores her twin girls, but she doesn't love being a stay-at-home mom. When her workaholic husband doesn't support her career aspirations, she packs up the kids and goes to Sunset Cottage, thinking that some time apart will help her decide what she really wants-but when the life she dreamed of becomes a possibility, she is more torn than ever.

Gemma was supposed to be planning her wedding, not trying to get back deposits. And she was supposed to be finished writing her latest romance novel, not staring at a blank screen. Lost and down on her luck, she heads north to Evening Island, hoping to find the inspiration she needs to fill the page, and maybe, her heart.

Ellie is almost perfectly content living in the house that once belonged to her grandmother, even if it does get a little lonely sometimes. Still, work is steady at her art studio and the island continues to serve as a muse, especially when her first love makes a surprise return.

In the course of a month, the Morgan sisters learn that despite their differences and their personal struggles, they might just have more in common than the old summer cottage that they inherited.
