Overview

Author Jennifer Gracen brings together a colorful cast of friends and family in Book One of the Seasons of Love series, Autumn Getaway. Newly divorced mom Lydia is just getting back on her feet. Her college roommate’s wedding promises a much-needed getaway weekend with old friends, at a beautiful manor in Connecticut. When she meets Sam, a handsome friend of the groom, she's nearly overwhelmed by a confusing mix of hope and trepidation. Their instant connection feels intensely real, to both of them, but the ink is barely dry on her divorce decree. It takes all her nerve, and more than a little prodding from her girlfriends, to convince Lydia to give her heart — and Sam — a chance. But when the magical weekend comes to a close, Sam must return to Chicago, while Lydia heads back to her complicated life and young son in New York. Can their newfound connection survive the trials of physical distance and years of emotional baggage?

Written with an appreciation for the day-to-day struggles of a newly single mom, Autumn Getaway explores the burdens and blessings of family, revels in the spirit of friendship, and celebrates the power of romance and hope as Lydia and Sam take a second chance at love.


“Jennifer Gracen portrays the heart of a newly divorced woman with such grace, passion, and humor. AUTUMN GETAWAY is a celebration of love, hope, and starting fresh.” Kieran Kramer, USA TODAY bestselling author of Say Yes to the Duke

    This is one of the most well written short reads. My only complaint is I didn't want it to end. I'm so glad there is a second book. I fell in love with the main characters. More more more!!

    "Autumn Getaway" by Jennifer Gracen...

    What is this novel about?

    "Author Jennifer Gracen brings together a colorful cast of friends and family in Book One of the Seasons of Love series, AUTUMN GETAWAY. Newly divorced mom Lydia is just getting back on her feet. Her college roommate’s wedding promises a much-needed getaway weekend with old friends, at a beautiful manor in Connecticut. When she meets Sam, a handsome friend of the groom, she's nearly overwhelmed by a confusing mix of hope and trepidation. Their instant connection feels intensely real, to both of them, but the ink is barely dry on her divorce decree. It takes all her nerve, and more than a little prodding from her girlfriends, to convince Lydia to give her heart - and Sam - a chance. But when the magical weekend comes to a close, Sam must return to Chicago, while Lydia heads back to her complicated life and young son in New York. Can their newfound connection survive the trials of physical distance and years of emotional baggage?"



    What I liked from this novel...

    This was a very enjoyable read that took place among friends and family celebrating a wedding one weekend. I found this novel very detailed and very relatable heart warming story, however, I was a little disappointed that I would have to wait until the next sequel to find out what happens as Sam and Lydia try to find love. The author has given the reader a good read of romance through love and relationships. The characters for the most part were well developed, loveable and believable helping to give the reader a interesting sweet and sexy enjoyable read. Be ready for a read of fun, friendship and even some drama with some powerful storytelling that will keep your attention till the end.

    Autumn Getaway brings love, hope, and a tad of drama to the read

    Autumn Getaway brings love, hope, and a tad of drama to the reader.   The characters are lovable, relatable, and a lot of fun.   These were characters that I cheered for, hoped for happy endings, and wanted to see them enjoy life.  I was proud of Lydia for being cautious, yet not willing to let life pass her by, and taking a chance with Sam.   Lydia was also a wonderful mom, concerned about leaving her son, yet knowing that he would be okay with his father to take care of him.  I loved how Jennifer Gracen kept Lydia’s son as a major part of the story.    Sam is the dream man.  He has a history, who doesn’t at age 35, but didn’t let it hold him back and he was understanding that Lydia was just starting to deal with her past.  




    The time of the year that Autumn Giveaway is set is perfect.   The changing of the leaves, the grandeur of the hotel, even the driving to and from the hotel played like a picture in my head.   I could see each scene perfectly.  




    This is a fun and easy read.  I could not put it down and when forced to I kept drifting back to it.  If you are looking for a read to make you smile and enjoy life Autumn Getaway is certainly the book for you.

    Just wow! Autumn Getaway will take you away for a weekend and leave you wanting so much more! This book has something that everyone can relate to. There is new relationship excitement for a recently divorced mom, family drama, parenting challenges, reuniting with old friends and much more. The way that Ms. Gracen can paint a picture is extraordinary. I couldn’t read it fast enough and I couldn’t read it slow enough…I just did not want the journey to end. Jennifer Gracen is a rockstar!

    I so loved this story. I felt the hope and fear... and excitemen

    I so loved this story. I felt the hope and fear... and excitement... right along with Lydia as she dared to open her heart a second time. Powerful storytelling and wonderfully flawed characters. This one is a keeper.

    In her debut novel, Jennifer Gracen delivers a lot of emotional punch.  Newly divorced, single Mom Lydia meets handsome, charismatic Sam at a friend's wedding. Fighting against the instant connection, Lydia has to decide if she's going to play it safe and open her heart to all Sam represents.  Nice, solid effort from a new author.  I'll be looking forward to Jennifer's next book.
