Available now: The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach by Jam Jenoff

***2.5/5 stars- it was ok

Fleeing from Italy to New York at the dawn of World War II, a young Jewish emigrant falls in with– and for– an Irish Catholic family.

Recommended readers:

  • If you’re a fan of WWII fiction and romance

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 2.5/5 for characters
  • 2.5/5 for plot
  • 2.5/5 overall
  • Steaminess: 2 of 5  (see our scale here)


When war comes to Fascist Italy, Addie Montforte is given a second chance living with her aunt and uncle in America. There, on Chelsea beach, she meets the Connallys, a family of four boys very different from her own.  When war comes to America’s shores, her romance with the eldest is challenged, taking her on a path she never expects, but the savvy reader does.  An enjoyable, if predictable read, with just a little adventure and romance.

The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach is available now on Amazon
