Bad Summer People Cover

Bad Summer People by Emma Rosenblum

This soapy drama about uber rich New Yorkers at their summer homes is filled with cattiness, infidelity and lots of tennis—including a swoon-worthy tennis pro. The novel opens at the end of summer when a body is found on the beach before the narrative backtracks to the start of summer, enabling the reader to enjoy the unfolding drama leading up to catastrophe. The alternating points of voice keep the reader guessing at whose body is found and why, as nearly everyone secretly despises each other. This book comes in at 250 pages and is perfect for a breezy, fun read.

The Drowning Woman by Robyn Harding

You will not be able to put this book down.
