Can't Wait Wednesday: The Summer Sail

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

The Summer Sail by Wendy Francis
Pub. Date: May 1, 2018



Goodreads says, "A trio of college friends who reunite aboard a cruise ship experience an unforgettable vacation in this compelling novel from the author of The Summer of Good Intentions, which was hailed as “everything a summer read should be” by Elin Hilderbrand.  Three college roommates are celebrating a twentieth wedding anniversary by taking a cruise to Bermuda. As the ship pulls away from the pier, everyone is looking forward to lounging by the pool, sipping sunset cocktails, and reminiscing. Abby, the mother hen of the group, will be celebrating her wedding anniversary in style, even as she and her husband keep a secret from the group. Ambitious career woman Caroline happily anticipates several stress-free days away from her magazine job with her boyfriend, Javier, who may or may not be finally inspired to propose. And single mom Lee (annoyingly gorgeous and irresistibly popular in college) hopes she’ll win back the affections of her formerly sweet daughter Lacey, who after her first year in college, has inexplicably become a little bit of a monster. As the balmy pink shores of Bermuda come into view, tensions simmer, and old jealousies flare, sending the temperature from soothing to scorching in this engrossing tale of three best friends on a vacation they won’t soon forget—but not for the reasons they expect."

I'm LOVING all of the beach reads that are currently being promoted and I like the sound of this one. I enjoyed her last novel, The Summer of Good Intentions, so I have high hopes for this one set aboard a cruise ship. I definitely will have a copy of this book in my beach bag this summer. What do you guys think?

  2. For some reason, books set on cruise ships always appeal to me. Though I get really seasick myself, I like them. Maybe they are my 'virtual' way of participating in a cruise. LOL

    1. Me too. I don't think I've read a book set on a cruise ship. Boats for sure, but not a cruise ship. Thanks for visiting!
