With New York City temperatures soaring, I have been escaping to the Jersey Shore on the weekends with Summer Secrets (St. Martin’s Press) by New York Times bestselling author Jane Green. A juicy drama filled with rich characters set against glitzy locations, it’s the perfect book to escape with on a warm summer’s day.
The story starts in 1998 with Cat, a 20-something London-based journalist whose life revolves around attending press parties with her tight-knit friends and consuming free booze until she blacks out.
Right at the point she is ready to quit drinking, she discovers the identity of the father she never knew existed living in Nantucket. Her efforts to forge a relationship with this man and his daughters is derailed by own self-destructive behavior.
Fifteen years later, sober and ready to make amends to those she has hurt, she returns to Nantucket, only to discover the her father’s real daughters, the women she once called family, have secrets of their own.
A great tale that’s a quick read, Summer Secrets was obviously written with vacation and beach-bound in mind.
