Overview

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

"It does the trick as a beach book and provides a touristy taste of Maine's seasonal attractions." —Publishers Weekly on The Family Beach House
