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?
Mary Kay Andrews' novel is the story of 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.
Summer Rental is one of Library Journal's Best Women's Fiction Books of 2011

It was enjoyable but slightly long winded. The story could have been a bit "tighter" in places but overall a good chick pixk.

Awesome read! I truly enjoyed reading this book, looking forward to reading more books by this author. It's a slight tear jerker, but also shows the meaning of true friends.

Wonderful tale of women's friendships
April 4th, 2013
I am always game for a good beach story, especially when I cannot personally be relaxing on my Carolina beaches. This book tells the story of old friends reuniting, as well as new friends they meet along the way. In one short month these women each undergo their own individual metamorphosis' . The girls reunite, but its not a lazy stay at the beach. They have each been keeping secrets and there is suspense around every corner.
