Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I suspected that Summer Rental would be a great 'beach read' and it was. It's not great literature but it delivers. You don't want this book to end. You feel like you know the thirty-something Ellis, Julia, and Dorie, friends since Catholic grade school.
Having decided to rent a house on the Outer Banks of North Carolina to spend some real time together, it turns out each friend is at a turning point. Add the mysterious Ty Bazemore, who lives over the garage, and the elusive Maryn, who is on the run but won't say why and you've got more than enough intrigue to keep your attention.
Mary Kay Andrews writes well. I don't usually read or appreciate 'chic lit' but this is an exception. Her characters are appealing and her descriptions are fine. I predict that everyone who reads this book will be dreaming of the chance to visit the beach with friends!
A little bit mystery, a little bit romance, and a lot about friendship, Summer Rental is a worthy read.
