The Summer Without You by Karen Swan
***** 5 stars
Karen Swan is becoming one of my top favorite authors. I sit down with her books and immediately escape, loving the characters as well as the plot. I really enjoyed this books as it had many twists and turns and a bit of a mystery on hand. Be sure to add this to your list of must reads.
Book Jacket Summary:
Rowena Tipton isn't looking for a new life, just a new adventure, something to while away the months as her long-term boyfriend presses pause on their relationship before they become engaged. But when a chance encounter at a New York wedding leads to an audition for a coveted houseshare in The Hamptons - Manhattan's elite beach scene - suddenly a new life is exactly what she's got.
Stretching before her is a summer with three eclectic housemates, long days on white sand ocean beaches and parties on gilded tennis courts. But high rewards bring high stakes and Rowena soon finds herself caught in the crossfire of a vicious intimidation campaign. Alone for the first time in her adult life, she has no-one to turn to but a stranger who is everything she doesn't want - but possibly everything she needs.
