As an artist, Callie Quinn relies on inspiration to guide her wandering soul. This summer she accepts a short-term muralist job in her sister’s charming town to spend some much-needed time with her family. After meeting her nephew’s friend, Brandon, she’s eager to draw out his untapped artistic talents—however, it’s the boy’s straitlaced single father who could use a little color in his life.
Davis Carter may be the town’s favorite animal whisperer, but his experience is limited when it comes to understanding his preteen’s rebellious behavior. Desperate for a breakthrough, he follows the lead of a free spirit who claims to know the way into his son’s closed-off world. Soon, Davis isn’t the only one caught up in the hope of a new beginning.
Just as Callie considers trading her unattached existence for a life rich with promise and permanence, an unexpected visit from the past threatens to send her packing once again. Davis and Callie must learn to surrender their fears so they can find a love that will outlast the summer.

lilacqueen755 Stars Out Of 5Sooooo good!September 19, 2017lilacqueen75Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Have you ever wanted to be someone else? Don't get me wrong--I'm happy with who I am, but sometimes I wish I could be more carefree, outgoing, talented, and fun. When Callie blows into town with her bright red hair, wicked artistic abilities, and carefree bohemian attitude, Davis doesn't even know what's hit him. She has a way about her that draws people to her like moths to a flame and her confidence in herself brings a sense of peace to those around her. I want to be her...maybe for a day.
As a mom, I can only imagine how hard it would be to be a single parent as Davis is, but he is one great dad, even though he struggles finding that balance with a soon-to-be teenager. I adore Davis! He's hardworking, smart, sweet, and puts others needs above his own, even when it's not convenient or easy.
For him to find someone like Callie is extremely satisfying, but that relationship right there is not immune to problems. Through all of the conflicts, there are moments of chemistry, which takes this book to a deeper level. I loved every minute of it! I want to live in Lenox, OR (is it a real place?); I want to be friends with Callie and her sister, Clem; I want to take my dog and cat to Davis's vet practice; I want to associate with these people.
Ms. Deese is a very talented writing that draws me right into the thick of her books and leaves me with a book hangover--I honestly don't want to finish that last page because then it will be over.
Content: mild religious elements; mild romance

If you've been following the Love in Lenox series then you're familiar with the generous town veterinarian, Davis Carter. In A New Shade of Summer readers finally get to see the vulnerable and courageous heart of a man who's willing to lay it all on the line for the right woman. But is Callie Quinn that woman? Never tied to one place, Callie packs her bags with rejection and art supplies wherever she goes and believes commitment isn't in her DNA. Ms. Deese delivers another transcending story of love that curls the fears of rejection and wraps it into the truth of unconditional love.
What I love about Ms. Deese's writing is her ability to capture moments of authenticity and bring them to life. My favorite part of the story comes toward the end when Callie's gift offers something Davis has never experienced. I enjoyed the relationship development between the cast of characters and the way each unique individual brings out the best and worst in each other. It. Was. Real. And it's what makes Ms. Deese one of my FAVORITE contemporary romance writers.
This inspirational story epitomizes much of what defines love: it's kind, generous, patient, honoring, and worth the risk when the right person comes around. Life changing. Life giving. And the perfect shade for a summer romance.
