The Summer Place really plays out in the best possible way like a Shakespearean comedy.
The Half Sister by Sandie Jones, 3.5 Stars
Ah the beginning of summer. "Blue skies, girls, barfy burgers." Okay maybe not the last two. But summer. Pools, drinks on the deck, firepits, friends. Although this year there are no pools and we have to wait until June 1 for friends. I must admit, I'm really having a hard time with the whole "no... Continue Reading →

The Second Home is the perfect book to pick-up for your non-existent vacation this summer. So pull up a lawn chair by the baby pool in your backyard, pour yourself some ice tea and escape to Cape Cod!
East Coast Girls by Kerry Klett, 3 Stars
A great read for anyone who loved Summer Sisters, Maine, or even Dive From Clausen's Pier.

I found this one to be a satisfying, fast-read with some twists and turns I didn't see coming.

For anyone who hasn't heard of the show it's a Netflix original starring Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup (yum!). I'd seen the promos but didn't realize that its a psychological thriller.
