One More for the Beach Bag: The Forever Summer by Jamie Brenner

by Susan Roberts

Now that May is here, my mind keeps heading to the South Carolina beaches that I enjoy so much. Even though I can't get to the beach this month, I can enjoy reading books about it. Last month, I told you about four books which you could tuck into your beach bag and enjoy while you are lounging in the sun. Today, I have one more for you.

The Forever Summer by Jamie Brenner is full of family secrets that keep the story moving at a fast pace. I must admit that once I started it, I couldn't put it down because I wanted to see how it all ended.

It's a story about what it takes to create a family and about the love that pulls a family together. I enjoyed all of the main characters and was really invested in their stories.

Marin is a lawyer at an NYC law firm and was always the good girl until she fell in love with another lawyer at the firm while engaged to someone else. At the same time they both ended up losing their jobs, a girl shows up claiming to be her half-sister on her way to Cape Cod to meet family that she didn't know she had. Marin, at loose ends, agrees to go with her and finds out more about her family - both the family that raised her and the family she didn't know existed - during that summer and at the same time she started to learn what was really important in life.
