Out today! Happy publication day!
This was a highly intriguing character-driven story about family, love, loss and the intensity of female friendship.
I was immediately drawn into this compelling tale. I loved the characters from page one and felt highly intrigued to find out where the novel would take me. We meet Tessa and Rebecca, two mothers from opposite ends of society who end up as summer neighbours in cottage country. They develop an instant friendship which grows into a deep dependency on each other. I truly enjoyed the journey of watching their friendship grow.
There is a lot that happens over the course of one summer. Some situations involving their children, husbands, parents and each other. I was fully invested in their lives and rooting for them to overcome their personal struggles and challenges. My one critique is that the story felt a bit too dramatic near the end. I still really enjoyed the novel and felt satisfied upon finishing, however, I would have preferred a little less happening at the end.
I thoroughly enjoyed Kate Hewitt’s writing. It flowed beautifully, was perfectly paced and the characters truly came to life for me. I look forward to reading more from Kate Hewitt!
A big thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Kate Hewitt for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
