Melodrama. David Baldacci has taken a break from thrillers to write a family melodrama titled, One Summer. This sappy tear-jerker read as if it were intended for a made for TV after school special. The family dynamics across generations are predictable and the life-changing events are out of a soap opera. Character development is flat. The story can be engaging at times, and after a while most readers will want to stick with it to find out how things get resolved.
Rating: One-star (Read only if your interest is strong)
