The little beach house on Martha's Vineyard has a rickety porch and no closets, but the gorgeous location is unbeatable--and more than enough to entice three total strangers into a house share for the summer. . .

At first, the only thing Gincy, Danielle, and Clare have in common is a desire to spend weekends away from the city. No-nonsense Gincy has worked hard to leave her small-town childhood behind. Danielle grew up with every advantage and is looking for a husband who'll fit neatly into her pampered life, while Clare is enjoying a last burst of independence before marrying her ambitious fiancé. Yet lazy beach days and warm, conversation-filled nights forge an unexpected connection. And over the course of one eventful summer, Gincy, Danielle, and Clare will discover that friendship isn't always measured in how well you know a person's past--but in opening each other's eyes to everything the future could hold. . .

"Nostalgia over real-life friendships lost and regained pulls readers into the story." –USA Today on Summer Friends

I loved this book.. a story of 3 women spending a summer together helping each other to exlore their feelings and discover what makes them happy. Insightful, witty, funny. The character portrayals are excellent and very well developed through the thoughts, feelings and words of each of the main characters. very real story with very real characters. Sometimes life just doesn't turn out the way you expect it to and that can be good.

A good read for a vacation or take the cottage. Put your feet up with a cuppa or a glass of vino.
