So deliciously addictive, it will be the "It" beach book of the summer' - Kirkus Reviews
This summer, four women are hoping to escape their troubles . . .
Birdie is organising a wedding, though her own marriage is falling apart. Her sister India is running away from her first chance of happiness in a long time, while her daughter Tate is running to something, but what that is, she doesn't yet know. And then there's Chess, who is just a mystery that none of the family know if they will ever unravel.
Gathering together for the first time in years in a ramshackle house with no running water on a remote island, the women settle into a routine.
But just how long can they hide from the secrets, lies and tragedy they have left behind?

At the start of this steamy woman's novel from Hilderbrand (The Castaways), recently divorced Birdie Cousins is busy planning the September wedding of her older daughter, Chess, at the family house on Tuckernuck, a privately owned island near Nantucket. Birdie hopes to spend some quality time with Chess on Tuckernuck in July, but then Chess breaks her engagement to her consummate Ivy League golden boy fianc , Michael Morgan. Michael fatally plunges off a Utah crag just when Birdie acquires her own new beau a married man with a wife stricken with Alzheimer's. Birdie, Chess, and their support team Birdie's computer-guru younger daughter, Tate, and Birdie's bohemian widowed sister, India hare off to Tuckernuck. There hunky handyman Barrett Lee flutters hearts and dampens underwear in a breathless month of supercharged estrogenic imbalances. This never-never land portrait of the rich and randy will please those looking for a satisfying beach read.
