Can't Wait Wednesday: Cape May

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

Cape May by Chip Cheek
Pub. Date: April 30, 2019




Goodreads says, "Late September 1957. Henry and Effie, very young newlyweds from Georgia, arrive in Cape May, New Jersey, for their honeymoon only to find the town is deserted. Feeling shy of each other and isolated, they decide to cut the trip short. But before they leave, they meet a glamorous set of people who sweep them up into their drama. Clara, a beautiful socialite who feels her youth slipping away; Max, a wealthy playboy and Clara’s lover; and Alma, Max’s aloof and mysterious half-sister, to whom Henry is irresistibly drawn.  The empty beach town becomes their playground, and as they sneak into abandoned summer homes, go sailing, walk naked under the stars, make love, and drink a great deal of gin, Henry and Effie slip from innocence into betrayal, with irrevocable consequences.  Erotic and moving, this is a novel about marriage, love and sexuality, and the lifelong repercussions that meeting a group of debauched cosmopolitans has on a new marriage."

It's not too early for me to start planning next summer's beach reads, right? I vacation at Cape May and am very familiar with the town, so I am hoping this one doesn't disappoint and is well-researched. What do you guys think?

  1. Anything that takes place at the Jersey Shore, I'm in for! 1950s Cape May sounds like a very fun setting.
