Deep South 2017 Summer Reading

24 of the latest beach reads, thrillers, literary fiction, memoirs and a brand-new biography.




The Bookshop at Water’s End (July 11)

by Patti Callahan Henry


Where a tidal river meets the ocean sits the house that shaped Bonny Blankenship’s most treasured memories—of the summers spent with her best friend, Lainey McKay. Known as the Summer Sisters, they read, swam and wished for happy-ever-afters amid the sand dunes and oak trees draped with Spanish moss. . . until the night that Lainey’s mother disappeared. Now, in her early fifties, Bonny is desperate to clear her head after a tragic mistake threatens her career as an emergency room doctor, and her marriage crumbles around her. With her troubled teenage daughter, Piper, in tow, she goes back to the beloved river house, where she is soon joined by Lainey and her two young children. During lazy summer days and magical nights, they reunite with bookshop owner Mimi, who is tangled with the past and its mysteries. As the three women cling to a fragile peace, buried secrets and long-ago loves return like the tide. Chat with Patti Callahan Henry on Twitter July 7! Buy the Book
