Can't Wait Wednesday: Summer Darlings

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

Summer Darlings by Brooke Lea Foster
Pub. Date: May 1, 2020



Goodreads says, "In 1962, coed Heddy Winsome leaves her hardscrabble Irish Brooklyn neighborhood behind and ferries to glamorous Martha’s Vineyard to nanny for one of the wealthiest families on the island. But as she grows enamored with the alluring and seemingly perfect young couple and chases after their two mischievous children, Heddy discovers that her academic scholarship at Wellesley has been revoked, putting her entire future at risk.  Determined to find her place in the couple's wealthy social circles, Heddy nurtures a romance with the hip surfer down the beach while wondering if the better man for her might be a quiet, studious college boy instead. But no one she meets on the summer island—socialite, starlet, or housekeeper—is as picture-perfect as they seem, and she quickly learns that the right last name and a house in a tony zip-code may guarantee privilege, but that rarely equals happiness.  Rich with the sights and sounds of midcentury Martha’s Vineyard, Brooke Lea Foster’s debut novel Summer Darlingspromises entrance to a rarefied world, for readers who enjoyed Tigers in Red Weather or The Summer Wives."

Martha's Vineyard during the 1960s?  Yes! I think this sounds like an incredible beach read. What do you guys think?

  4. I love the setting, both time period and location. This sounds like it will be good. I can see how it would be easy to swept up by the wealth and glamour, but nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. I hope you love this when you read it. Have a good weekend and stay safe and healthy.
