Book Club!!

This week I'm sharing...

Here's the synopsis:
Sometimes, when you need a change in your life, the tide just happens to pull you in the right direction….

Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she’s made over the past decade of her life. Julia—whose caustic wit covers up her wounds–has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can’t hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life.  And Dorie has just been shockingly betrayed by the man she loved and trusted the most in the world…though this is just the tip of the iceberg of her problems and secrets. A month in North Carolina’s Outer Banks is just what they each of them needs.

Ty Bazemore is their landlord, though he’s hanging on to the rambling old beach house by a thin thread. After an inauspicious first meeting with Ellis, the two find themselves disturbingly attracted to one another, even as Ty is about to lose everything he’s ever cared about.

Maryn Shackleford is a stranger, and a woman on the run. Maryn needs just a few things in life: no questions, a good hiding place, and a new identity.  Ellis, Julia, and Dorie can provide what Maryn wants; can they also provide what she needs?

Five people questioning everything they ever thought they knew about life. Five people on a journey that will uncover their secrets and point them on the path to forgiveness. Five people who each need a sea change, and one month in a summer rental that might just give it to them.

I am a long time fan of Mary Kay Andrews.  I have loved every book she's written.  If we're being honest, Summer Rental wasn't my favorite of hers.  But it was still a good read.  It's definitely in the chick lit category and very entertaining.

What are you reading?

So this is the second time in TWO days that I've heard about Mary Kay Andrews. I'm thinking this is a sign I should pick one up. You said this one wasn't your favourite, which one would you recommend?

This was my book club Friday book as well! I have read all M.K.A. books and actually liked this one more than others because it was more relatable than some of her others. It was great reading your different take on the book. Thanks for hosting Book Club Fridays!

I saw a book of hers yesterday when I went grocery shopping. I can't remember the name though, and I thought of you! :)

Mr. and Mrs. Smith said...

I have never ever read a book by her! I'm always looking for chick lit authors so I'll have to pick some of them up!

Your book reviews are always so great!

Never heard of her before. Um, you're pretty much a reading machine. I'm still getting through the Harry Potter series.

Heather said...
