Episode 256: A Chat about Summer in the Spotlight w/ Liz Johnson

Update: 2023-08-29


Liz Johnson defies my "romance isn't really my thing" assertion, and Summer in the Spotlight promises to continue the tradition.  But Summer in the Spotlight has more going for it than just a great story with all the feels.  It's also the end of the series. It's a series I actually don't want to end but... I'm excited. Listen in to see why.

Why Am I Excited to See This Wonderful Romance Series End?

The answer is simple. Because it kind of isn't ending.  While we were chatting, we got a hint of what's coming after Summer in the Spotlight, and Liz isn't leaving PEI or her characters. We're going to head back over to The Red Door Inn and all our friends there.  And all after a satisfying ending to the wonderful Ross brothers' series.  

Look, I'd just as soon have a bunch more Rosses show up and continue with this series, but since we got a peek at what's coming up, and since Liz admitted that she has more plans for more Prince Edward Island, well... I'm excited to see it end so we can get those things.

And then if she wants to bring it back, I'll be even more excited.

Okay, so basically, if Liz writes it, I'm excited to read it.  Sometimes someone's work just resonates with you. Liz Johnson is one of those people for me. 

We had a lovely chat about Proverbs, speaking life into people, and how our immersion in the Word comes out in our writing and in our reading.  Basically, it was a wonderful chat and, I found out that she's got a group trip planned for next year.

Prince Edward Island here I come! Squeeeeeeee!

Liz Johnson Summer in the SpotlightSummer in the Spotlight by Liz Johnson

A hurricane may have destroyed her livelihood on Prince Edward Island, but she's determined to save her community.

Kelsey Ahern has performed at the Victoria Playhouse on Prince Edward Island every summer since she was seven. But when a hurricane destroys the building, it's not just her memories that are in jeopardy. Her future as a teacher and drama coach are too. She teams up with Levi Ross, the facilities director at the high school, to produce a benefit show to raise money to rebuild the theater. He has a reputation for being able to fix anything, and Kelsey is sure there's more to the quiet man than meets the eye.

For his part, Levi has admired Kelsey for years, but he can't seem to find the words to tell her. When a popular weatherman arrives in town to cover the aftermath of the hurricane and takes an interest in Kelsey and her show, Levi realizes that the time has come to speak up--or lose the heart of the woman he longs for.

Join New York Times bestselling author Liz Johnson for a season of rebuilding, restoration, and romance with this final book in the Prince Edward Island Shores series.
