The calendar says summer begins in mid-June. But really, summer begins in just one week--May 19th. Well, okay, at least for me it does.
That's the day THE SUMMER'S END lands on store shelves! I'm excited to finally be able to share the third installment of the Lowcountry Summer Trilogy with you.
In THE SUMMER'S END, I take you back to the charming seaside town of Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, where Mamaw is bracing to sell her beloved family estate, Sea Breeze. It’s an emotional season as Mamaw and her "summer girls"--granddaughters Eudora, Carson, and Harper--face loss and struggle to find a fresh start in life. Harper, the youngest sister, who lived under the narcissistic abuse of her wealthy and influential mother, has no home or career after breaking free of her mother’s tyranny. And she finds herself needing courage to release her insecurities, recognize her strengths and accept love fully to save her family and her future.
Here's a little sneak peek of THE SUMMER'S END. Read excerpt now.

Meantime, I've been busy writing another book, doing media interviews, preparing for my book talks, and packing for the tour. My sister Ruthie will be my road warrior again for this 33-city book tour. Am I coming to a place near you? View book tour schedule now.
Join me at an event. We'll have a great time! And, if you live within driving distance of Charleston, South Carolina... come celebrate the official book launch party for THE SUMMER'S END at the South Carolina Aquarium on Monday, May 18th, 6:30-8:30 p.m. I can't think of a more beautiful setting for a book party with wine, food, live island music, and most importantly, friends.
