Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes, and Serena Stockton bonded over their New York City dreams. Then, each summer, they solidified their friendship by spending one week at the lake together, solving their problems over bottles of wine and gallons of ice cream. They kept the tradition for years, until jealousy, lies, and life's disappointments made them drift apart.
It's been five years since Emma has seen her friends, an absence designed to keep them from discovering a long-ago betrayal. Now she's in desperate need of their support. The time has come to reveal her secrets and hopefully rekindle their connection. But when a terrible accident keeps Emma from saying her piece, Serena and Mackenzie begin to learn about the past on their own. Now, to heal their friendship and their broken lives, the three women will have to return to the lake that once united them and discover which relationships are worth holding on to.

Though I haven't been the biggest fan of this author I've usually liked her characters and the manner in which she presents conflict. This particular effort presented plenty of conflict but the lack of likability inherent in this book's characters presents no heroes. Serena's obsession with her high school boyfriend came off as totally ridiculous for a woman in her forties. Mackenzie was a whiny wuss who pouted whenever things didn't go her way. Emma the third of the friends, and the central player in this story came off as generic and nondescript for the most part. There wasn't the same flawed, but still likable human beings in this work that made her previous works so listenable. The author is usually an expert at drawing the listener into the story and having us buy in, not this time.

Liked It!

Yes it was predictable and they gave away the mystery way too early ... But I enjoyed it. It didn't make me want to laugh or cry and still it was satisfying in a chick lit kinda way. I really enjoyed the characters and felt like I knew them. Well done!
