It Happened One Summer is part one of the Bellinger Sisters series by Tessa Bailey. It’s about Piper Bellinger, an influencer from LA. She’s fashionable and has the reputation of a wild child. After a bad breakup, Piper decides to throw a rooftop party that doesn’t end well. After this, her stepfather cuts her off and sends Piper to Westport to teach her a lesson.
Piper hasn’t even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who doubts she’ll survive a week in this small town. However, Piper is determined to prove her stepfather and ex-boyfriend wrong so she’ll do anything to get back to LA.
Very early in the book, you can already notice the tension building between Piper and Brendan so it’ll get you hooked just because you’ll want to find out what happens. Luckily when you finish this book there’s a part two called Hook, Line and Sinker.
