Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from her job, begins to question the choices she's made over the past decade. Julia has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can no longer hide her deepest insecurities. And Dorie has just been shockingly betrayed by the man she loved and trusted the most. Can a one-month getaway to North Carolina's Outer Banks help make things right?
Sometimes the tide just pulls you in the right direction…
The landlord of the ladies' beach house is Ty Bazemore, who's hanging on to the property by a thread--even as he finds himself spiraling into a deep attraction with Ellis. Then there's Maryn Shackleford, a stranger who arrives on the scene in search of a good hiding place and a new identity. Can Ellis, Julia, and Dorie provide what Maryn is looking for? Five people on a journey that will uncover their secrets and point them on the path to renewal and forgiveness. One summer rental that might be what each of them has needed all along… -- St. Martin's Paperbacks
Summer just wouldn't seem like summer without reading a novel by Mary Kay Andrews. Her books are so much fun and a great way to escape by the pool or the beach. To celebrate the arrival of summer (it's closer than you think!), I have two great books to share with you -- SUMMER RENTAL and SAVE THE DATE. I have read both of these books (you can read my reviews here and here), and I promise that they are truly entertaining.
Thanks to the fine folks at Tandem Literary, I have an amazing Mary Kay Andrews Goodie Bag which contains the following:
- Copy of SAVE THE DATE in trade paperback
- Copy of SUMMER RENTAL in mass market paperback
- Two different Mary Kay Andrews bookmarks
