Check out what the critics are saying about this amazing novel:


“When the antisocial sommelier [Button Jackson] befriends recently divorced Meghan Cherry, and Dawn Martin, a top-gun attorney who’s single and haplessly searching, the ladies’ views on love, marriage and sisterhood catapult from awkward to awesome.” -S. Tia Brown, Jet Magazine

“If Waiting to Exhale and Sex and the City procreated, the healthy, bouncing baby would read like Single Girl Summer. You’ll live vicariously through Button, Dawn, and Meghan. Even if you’ve never set foot in Chicago, after reading this, you’ll feel like a Chi-town native.” -Lana Pipkins

“Single Girl Summer…is a breezy, enjoyable romp that will make you long for hot days and balmy nights in [Chicago].” -Kyra Kyles, Chicago Tribune RedEye

“Each character possesses her own plight that doesn’t offset any other character, but compliments it.” -Chivone Smith, Chicago Defender

“All three [characters] carry interesting stories and, my gosh, do they come with fun drama and baggage.” – Emily Howard, Skillet Director

“Congratulations on Single Girl Summer. A most enjoyable read.” -Nikki Giovanni, Author and Poet

“Requesting Single Girl Summer The SEQUEL please. And that is all.” -Zondra Hughes, Rolling Out


Author Deanna Kimberly Burrell showcases the trials and triumphs of life, love, and relationships through the three main characters Button Jackson, Dawn Martin, and Meghan Cherry-Henderson. We are introduced to them at a crucial time in each woman’s life. They form an alliance and vow to make the most of the upcoming summer in Chicago. Against the backdrop of festivals, picnics, and al fresco dining, they share relationship perspectives, face fears, heal deep emotional wounds, and learn the power of forgiveness. Button, Dawn, and Meghan come together by chance, grow together as friends, and ultimately discover that for every girl, there’s a season.
