Publisher's Summary

Some people stay all summer long on the idyllic island of Belle Isle, North Carolina. Some people come only for the weekends - and it's something they look forward to all week long. When Riley Griggs is waiting for her husband to arrive at the ferry one Friday afternoon, she is instead served with papers informing her that her island home is being foreclosed. To make matters worse, her husband is nowhere to be found.
She turns to her island friends for help and support, but all of them have their own secrets, and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens. Cocktail parties and crab boil aside, Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Island, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything.

Don't waste your weekend

A book marketed as "a great summer read" should be somewhat enjoyable. This was almost unbearable. My ears are still ringing from the bratty 12 year old (completely unbelievable character) and her nagging, doormat mother. By the time you find out who-done-it...you don't care (you will have figured it out anyway). Nothing about this book was believable or enjoyable.

Kathleen McInerney...next time your agent gives you a book with a whiny teenager and old women, say no. You're a fave, but this was a bust!

Unbearably boring.

I really disliked this book. It was so insanely boring. Nothing ever happens until the last 15 mins or so. It's just a woman complaining about her life for 60+ chapters. Definitely would not recommend.
