The Summer of Us

A novel by

Holly Chamberlin, bestselling author of Living Single, returns with a sexy, sassy new novel of three women on the brink of turning thirty -- and on the verge of finding themselves. A house share in Martha's Vineyard sets the stage for a summer of cold margaritas, hot guys, and hilarious adventures. The kind of summer that can break hearts -- and make lifelong friendships . . .The Summer of Us.

Gincy Gannon isn't exactly an easy fit with the upper crust Vineyard scene. Raised poor and precocious in Nowheresville, New Hampshire, she escaped to Boston after high school. Now a career at PBS fills her days, while her freewheeling sex life keeps her otherwise stimulated. Commitment is definitely not her thing. So why, when Gincy's supposed to be reeling in lifeguards, is she getting hooked on a single dad?

Life is good for Danielle Leers. She's got a close-knit family, a killer wardrobe, and a job that keeps her in manicures and massages. As far as Danielle's concerned, pampering is a right, not a privilege. Besides, now that she's set her sights on settling down, her good grooming will attract great husband material. Which should mean a well-heeled Jewish professional. Not a townie who fishes for a living . . .

Blueblood Clare Wellman doesn't worry about keeping up appearances -- her boyfriend, Winchester Carrington, III, is in charge of that. Actually, he's in charge of pretty much everything . . . and never lets Clare forget it. Some time on her own is just what Clare needs to get to know herself again. Then Win proposes. An engagement ring shouldn't feel like an albatross -- and this summer may be Clare's last chance to see what could be -- before what is ties her down for good . . .

Three city-smart girlfriends are about to take the plunge into love, lust, and letting it all hang out, Vineyard-style. It will be a summer of change -- but long after the tan lines have faded, they'll still have each other.
