    This was a light summer read emphasis on light but not likable for me The plot was for the most part, very predictable early on I can appreciate the general story but wasn t impressed with the execution The book was also overloaded with materialistic references like the 161,000 Tesla and the silver Land Rover Discovery SE We get it it s the Hamptons certain social, fashion, and wealth levels are expected but ahh, it was definitely overkill Although the synopsis was enticing to me, This was a light summer read emphasis on light but not likable for me The plot was for the most part, very predictable early on I can appreciate the general story but wasn t impressed with the execution The book was also overloaded with materialistic references like the 161,000 Tesla and the silver Land Rover Discovery SE We get it it s the Hamptons certain social, fashion, and wealth levels are expected but ahh, it was definitely overkill Although the synopsis was enticing to me, I would ve been just fine skipping this one as I felt it disappointed

    This is the very best kind of beach warm weather reading.Katie moved to the Hamptons on a whim to try out a new life and a possible relationship with George Potter, a guy she met at a lengthy conference back home He lives in Manhattan during the week and comes out to see her when he can, which isn t as often as she thought it would be, if she is being honest Which is fine, really. Katie never planned to become ultra attached to a man, and anyway it gives her a chance to get to know the area S This is the very best kind of beach warm weather reading.Katie moved to the Hamptons on a whim to try out a new life and a possible relationship with George Potter, a guy she met at a lengthy conference back home He lives in Manhattan during the week and comes out to see her when he can, which isn t as often as she thought it would be, if she is being honest Which is fine, really. Katie never planned to become ultra attached to a man, and anyway it gives her a chance to get to know the area She can check out the beaches, windsurf a little bit, and meet some of the people that live nearby Speaking of the people, they are very interesting.Katie notices that there is a huge divide in the people in the area there are the ultra rich the ones that always dress in khaki and bright colors, and pack their kids summers full of activities so they can spend all day doing Pilates or yoga classes and lunching with their friends She notices that these kids are rushed from activity to activity by the house staff and that the parents never miss these exercise classes What gives And the cars that they drive and homes they live in Wow Then there are the locals, like that guy Luke the ones that dress in jeans and tees, the ones that are laid back The ones that seemlike the people back home The ones that are hosting and working all of these activities that these rich people are attending The landscapers The cafe workers When Katie met George, he seemedlike one of the locals now that she can see him in his own environment, he really seems to fit inwith the khaki wearing group It s a little disappointing, actually.So this book This is exactly what I like in a summer read There is the beach and there is some summer drama But not too much All of the characters in this story are connected in some way Some areobviously connected, and we find that out within the first few chapters But there are some connections that don t come out until later in the book and WHAT I really didn t see these things coming It s so great I just loved every word.I loved Katie Her sense of wonder at the Atlantic Ocean made me so happy because I feel the same way, having lived close to it my entire life It feels good to see someone from far off come and love on something that I love It s interesting to see her perspective on the Hamptons, though This is a place that I ve never been I ve only read about I loved reading her thoughts on the locals vs the vacationers I love how she enmeshed herself into both worlds right away Katie is a teacher so in order to afford this life in this expensive place, she began freelance private tutoring lessons for children during the vacationers during the summer She couldn t believe what people paid for those lessons versus what people paid for lessons where she came from, but that was indicative of life in that area versus other areas of the country Katie didn t necessarily love it and didn t necessarily want to become part of it, but she accepted it and that was that.She planned to take her time on her relationship with George, and her patience allowed her listen to the intuition and opinion of her child, which I loved She also paid attention to how other people on the island reacted to George, which was important, I thought Aside from being one of the things I loved about Katie as a character, this is also part of how all of the characters connected.I have to tell you, I m here for these local characters They were my favorite characters in the book, especially Luke They are a group of friends that grew up in one of the Hampton towns and worked there year round Early in the story, some of the rich vacationers target their very popular beach camp business because they don t like the way it looks I mean, like, the way it actually looks, to their eyes, sitting on the sand This is one of the best parts of the book because this is where we get to know the best characters in the story the rich and the local And I love Luke s entire story.Here is where I ll be honest and say that in the beginning of the book, with all of the descriptions of clothes and cars and homes, I painted a picture of these rich characters in my mind I felt like it was a pretty good one, too And throughout the story, it held up But towards the end, I realized that there wasto a few of these characters, and I LOVE THAT I love that I had a few of them wrong When I started this book, I never ever could have called how this book would have ended Loved So much fun.This is a book that I ll certainly read again, particularly during the warm weather It ll probably be one I throw in my beach bag or my pool bag I just loved it It felt adventurous to me, but this is because I ve never been to the Hamptons and can only live this life through stories like these I loved the sense of the salty air and the beach that it invoked I just love the beach that much and think others will like that part of the story too But it s these quirky, nutty characters that did it all for me Selfishly, I wish I knewabout what happened after the end of the book because I really love the way it all ended I love that it is a standalone, but if the author decided to write , I would be all over it like white on rice I m just saying I received this book for free from William Morrow in exchange for an honest review This did not affect my opinion of the book, my rating, or the content of my review You can see my review in its entirety here at my blog Into the Hall of Books I rated this book 4.5 stars out of 5, but rounded up on Goodreads

    Release Date May 9, 2017 Genre Women s FictionI really wanted to love this book as it promises everything that women want in a beach read But, it just didn t deliver for me Why it had no substance The plot seemed almost pointless as it didn t come together until the very end like after 300 pages To me, it felt like there were just a bunch of people whining about either being rich or not being rich, or about them trying to make something of themselves without it being resolved It was Release Date May 9, 2017 Genre Women s FictionI really wanted to love this book as it promises everything that women want in a beach read But, it just didn t deliver for me Why it had no substance The plot seemed almost pointless as it didn t come together until the very end like after 300 pages To me, it felt like there were just a bunch of people whining about either being rich or not being rich, or about them trying to make something of themselves without it being resolved It was just an all around weird book that COULD have been better had the author stuck to one plot point and written the story around that You can readabout that in my spoiler below view spoiler It s hard to spoil this book because there is nothing memorable or even important about it I am not trying to be insensitive to the authors work or rude but I just don t understand how this was published as is But, as far as plot points I think the author would have had a fantastic book had she focused on one problem and resolved it For example, there are quite a few issues brought up in this book like how rich men take advantage of minors this would have been a solid point to base the book around or about the camp that these rich folks are trying to shut down because it ruins their beach , or even the romance aspect that is included in the book Instead, all of this was rolled into one and nothing happened Ah I am so confused hide spoiler Anyway, you can probably tell that this book was not my cup of tea, and that s fine Some people will love with as it could be considered an easy beach read, but others will be left wantingwhen they are finished Unfortunately, nothing about this book was interesting to me On to the next one

    In truth, this is not even 1 star It s a 1 2 at best Every single trope and stereotype from chick lit fiction is used and none of them well This book is an insult to chick lit because it s reductive, trashy and poorly written Honestly, when big, bulbous butt is used to describe a teenager an older guy is trying to hook up with, you know things are bad.There s 384 pages of my life I ll never get back If you re looking for fun, but intelligent, fresh, beachy reading, look elsewhere.

  8. Andrea Andrea says:

    I like lowbrow, chick lit beach reads, so I enjoyed the storyline old money vs new money vs townies, love triangles, and some summertime smut scenes But good lord, the grammar and sentence structure made my eyes bleed I m not sure there was a correctly placed modifier anywhere Who the hell edited this A goldfish
