Overview


When two estranged sisters inherit a Hamptons beach house, they search for fortune but find love instead.

Cassie and Peck are half sisters with little in common beyond a shared last name--that is, until their beloved aunt Lydia bequeaths them equal shares of her ramshackle old cottage in the Hamptons with instructions to "seek the thing of utmost value" within it. Cassie and Peck fantasize about discovering a lost Jackson Pollock, or a first edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, as they revel in one last summer of fabulous parties and nostalgia.

From the author of Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him, Danielle Ganek's The Summer We Read Gatsby, a perfect beach read, captures the spirit of New York's most glamorous resort town, and will captivate readers with its spellbinding blend of romance, mystery, and charmingly eccentric characters.

    A delicious summer sundae without the guilt!

    The Summer We Read Gatsby is absolutely one of the must reads of the summer! I devoured it like an ice cream sundae on a hot summer day! It is such a delicious page turner and sprinkled with wit. Every reader can identify with the stacked themes of love, family, and relationships which are loaded like scoops of ice cream. Each with their unique flavor yet melting into such a rich story. The intertwined mystery just swirls like caramel sauce so smoothly throughout the story building up to the climax. And the ending is just like the cherry on top! What a delightful treat! It totally hit the spot and I can wait for more.

    Really liked this book

    I'm surprised it doesn't have more stars recommending it overall. I love this story, it is quirky and poignant and entertaining all at once.

    Don't bother

    From the very beginning of this book I was just waiting for something, anything, to happen. Everything about it was predictable. The characters were uninteresting and the storyline was boring. It was not worth my time.
