My Review (5 Stars:Loved it!)
They met as young adults in NYC pursuing their dreams. They formed a close bond. Mackenzie was in college for fashion design. Serena moved from Charleston to pursue acting. Emma, who divorced her famous parents who were actors, conceals her identity, and pursues her own acting career.
As the years go on, the girls go their separate ways, but reunite each year for a week at Emma’s Lake George cottage in upstate New York. About five years ago, Emma stopped inviting them. So when she asks them to join her again, they have questions and want answers.
Emma intends to reveal the secret she’s been keeping, explaining the sudden stop in the lakeside reunions. However, it does not come easy and the strain on their close relationship and love for one another becomes too difficult to bear.
This is a touching story about how each women, in their own way, comes to terms with their past and their insecurities. It is about friendship and forgiveness.
I’d like to thank Wendy Wax and The Berkley Publishing Group for sending me this novel, free of charge, for review.
During her formative years in the booming metropolis of Noblesville, Indiana, Mackenzie Hayes never once heard the term “love at first sight.” As a member of an extended family that prided itself on practicality, she had no doubt that if such a fanciful form of affection ever present itself, she would be expected to stamp it out.”
