Mary Kay Andrews' New York Times bestselling summer hit, SUMMER RENTAL, about three best friends spending a month together in North Carolina’s Outer Banks is soon to be out in paperback.
The author wanted to take a minute to tell all of the amazing librarians out there (ie: you!) a little bit more about this great beach read in case you missed it in hardcover.
Take it away, Mary Kay!
The promise of a month spent at a rambling old beach house with your lifelong best friends? Who wouldn’t jump at the chance? SUMMER RENTAL is the story of three women, best friends since parochial school days in Savannah, who find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. A month in North Carolina’s Outer Banks is just what they need. Joined by Ty, their gorgeous but enigmatic landlord, and Maryn, a stranger trying to out-run her past, the women find themselves on a journey that will uncover all their secrets, and maybe, point them on the path to forgiveness. I hope your patrons will enjoy reading SUMMER RENTAL as much as I enjoyed writing it.
All my best,
Mary Kay Andrews
