This was not a romance, although there was a happy ending for both sisters and their Aunt Maddie!
This was not a book I would compare to Mary Kay Andrews- MKA's books have a little sizzle to them, but this book does not. It is a very clean romance. This novel deals more with the grief each sister has to get over when their mother dies. Hannah, the youngest sister, has a bit of writer's block; Sara, the older sister, has some issues with her marriage, and Aunt Maddie has issues with her marriage.

We learn a lot about Cape Cod, 'ghost' a lawyer for some writer's tidbits, and find out how a mother of four copes with a recalcitrant husband and a new job and make a ton of new friends.

A pleasant read for a day at the beach, even if it's not Cape Cod!

Hannah, a best selling romance author, is having a bit of writer’s block. Currently living in Brooklyn, she decides to spend the summer in her hometown of Chatham on Cape Cod, with her aunt. Her sister, husband and four children also live in Chatham. Both her aunt and sister are having some marital hiccups. While there, Hannah rekindles a friendship with attorney Spencer and also dates a best selling author whose parents live on the Cape.

If I had to describe this book in three words, it would be cozy little romance. There is no significant drama or humor in this story of nondescript characters who seem to live an idealized life. Told from different POVS, there is a lot of wine (often identified by brand) and descriptions of food (especially bagels, lobster, and brownies). Chatham is depicted in all its charm and those who have visited there will enjoy the journey back.

I am a stickler for authenticity, even in fiction, and a major activity in the book bothered me. Would attorneys really have an author who is doing research sit in on conferences with clients? Where is the attorney client confidentiality? I also noticed a bit of repetition in the narrative.

All that said, if you are looking for a nice little no effort quick beach read, this may be for you.

Thanks to #NetGalley and #STMartinsPress for the DRC.

Jess and Alison have been best friends since they met in Chatham on Cape Cod. As adults, they have gone their separate ways with Jess living in Charleston, SC and Alison staying in Chatham. When Jess discovers her husband’s infidelity, she returns to Chatham for a visit with her mom. Jess brings along her daughter, Caitlin, hoping that she and Alison’s daughter, Julia, could finally become friends like their Jess and Alison.

Jess is a lawyer and Alison works as an editor for a magazine and is best friends with her ex-husband. When Alison is told that she needs to reduce her hours to part-time, she isn’t sure what she is going to do….until she stops in at the bookstore and finds out that the owner wants to sell.
The two friends enter into a business venture for the summer until Jess and Caitlin are to return to Charleston. But, after spending the summer in Chatham, they aren’t sure if they want to go back to their old lives or stay.

This book is about family, friendship, relationships and being set in the seaside town of Chatham, it has all the feel of a small town.

Thanks to St. Martin's Press through Netgalley for an advance copy. This book published on June 6, 2023.
