Bring on the summer reading!
For me, this was the perfect book to kick off summer reading with!
Four ladies renting a cottage by the sea for the month of August…all hoping to find peace and escape from their daily lives.
Lottie and Rose spot an add at their children’s preschool for a beach cottage rental off the coast of Maine.
Neither of them can really afford a beach holiday but if they can find a couple other women to split the rent, then they can enjoy a holiday by the sea.
Both of them need this vacation, Lottie’s husband is super over bearing and her sex life is basically non existent, and Rose whose life basically stopped when she had twins both need some time away…..they decide to book the cottage and figure out the financial details later.
