    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Some people stay all summer long on the idyllic island of Belle Isle, North Carolina. Others come ony for the weekends, and the mix between the regulars and "the weekenders" can sometimes make the sparks fly. Riley Griggs has a season of good times with friends and family ahead of her on Belle Isle when things take an unexpected turn. While waiting for her husband to arrive on the ferry one Friday afternoon, Riley is confronted by a process server who thrusts papers into her hand. And her husband is nowhere to be found. So she turns to her island friends for help and support, but it becomes clear that each of them has their own secrets, and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens... in a murderous way. Now Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Isle, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything." -- page [4] of cover

Andrews' novels, such as Save the Date(2014) and Beach Town (2015), are the epitome of relaxing yet involving summer reads, and her latest is no exception. Riley Griggs' family founded the charming North Carolina coastal town of Belle Isle, and now her husband, Wendell, wants to build a large-scale luxury development, a plan she objects to. The fact is, they don't agree on much anymore, and at the start of this summer season they plan to tell their 12-year-old daughter, Maggie, that they're getting a divorce. But first Wendell doesn't show up for the ferry, and then he turns up dead. Riley discovers that Wendell drained all her family's bank accounts for some shady loans, and that's not all he cooked up with the attractive loan officer. As she tries to rebuild her life on Belle Isle, Riley also rekindles a flirtation with her long-ago flame, Nate, who's back for a fresh start. Andrews blends romance, intrigue, and soap-opera-like twists in this entertaining novel about a gossipy beach town. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A 300,000-copy first print run and a major marketing campaign, including a national author tour, reflect avid reader interest. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
