*GIVEAWAY time!* Even though we still have our heat on here in N Ohio, w/ night temps still in the 30’s, summer reading is just around the corner.
Thank you @atriabooks for my gift copy of ‘That Summer‘ by Jennifer Weiner, a timely, deliciously twisty novel of intrigue, secrets, & the transformative power of female friendship, set on beautiful Cape Cod. (available 5/11/21)
📖Daisy Shoemaker can’t sleep. With a thriving cooking business, full schedule of volunteer work, & a beautiful home in the Philadelphia suburbs, she should be content. But her teenage daughter can be a handful; her husband can be distant, her work can feel trivial, & she has lots of acquaintances, but no real friends. Still, Daisy knows she’s got it good. So why is she up all night?
📖While Daisy tries to identify the root of her dissatisfaction, she’s also receiving misdirected emails meant for a woman named Diana Starling, whose email address is just one punctuation mark away from her own. While Daisy’s driving carpools, Diana is chairing meetings. While Daisy’s making dinner, Diana’s making plans to reorganize corporations. Diana’s glamorous, sophisticated, single-lady life is miles away from Daisy’s simpler existence. When an apology leads to an invitation, the two women meet & become friends. But, as they get closer, we learn that their connection was not completely accidental. Who IS this other woman, & what does she want with Daisy?
📖From the manicured Main Line of Philadelphia to the wild landscape of the Outer Cape, written w/ Jennifer Weiner’s signature wit & sharp observations, ‘That Summer‘ is a story about surviving our pasts, confronting our futures, & the sustaining bonds of friendship.
Described as an engaging, thought-provoking, emotionally charged drama w/ secrets, complicated female friendships, & captivating w/ atmosphere & suspense filled, I’m saving ‘That Summer‘ for THIS summer & some poolside reading. I really enjoyed ‘Big Summer‘ LAST summer & I have an extra copy of that & Weiner’s essay collection, ‘Hungry Heart‘ up for grabs for one lucky reader. (I’ve said SUMMER so many times, it reminds me of that 80’s song by The Cars, ‘Magic’…”Summer, summer, summer, It’s like a merry-go-round.“
