Summer's Growth by Tina Gayle Purchase:

    Fascinating story with a family of secrets to discover

    Forced by the family spirits to get a life, Mattie Winston has to train her replacement Amber Harrison to be in charge of all the workings of the Winston estate. Reluctant to make changes in her life, Mattie forms a bond with Amber, when strange accidents start happening which threaten their lives and an unknown ghost makes an appearance.
    After being rescued by an old flame, Quincy Miller, Mattie faces old wounds of rejection. As the general contractor for Amber’s redecoration project, Mattie is in constant contact with Quincy and realizes she still in love with her childhood sweetheart.

    Amber, learning her new role in the family, wants to discover the identity of the ghost who keeps appearing. After several appearances, Gwen, Amber’s distance grandmother, shifts the book into more of Amber’s struggle to find out why her grandmother disappeared two hundred years ago without a trace. In a fight to claim her position in the family, Amber searches for clues to solve the mystery.

    Mattie and Amber are both challenged when the family spirits decides Amber shouldn’t be the keeper. Battling for Amber, Mattie realizes she wants a life with Quincy outside the Winston estate.

    Amber realized the importance of her new spiritual family, and she works to discover how Gwen died.

    Can these two women achieve their goals?

    Comments from Reviewers

    “Summer’s Growth is a compelling story about two women. Amber Harrison is a struggling college student who doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. Mattie Winston has devoted her life to her family’s spiritual guides. When the spirits decided to replace Mattie with Amber, both are thrown together. Strange things start happening around them and they are both challenged by their desire to have the life they have always wanted.
    Mattie had her heart broken by Quincy Miller once. Now years later, can she give him another chance?
    Will Amber discover who killed her distant grandmother and give love a chance to grow with Carter?
