Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews Book Summary

Sometimes, when you need a change in your life, the tide just happens to pull you in the right direction…

Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she's made over the past decade of her life. Julia--whose caustic wit covers up her wounds--has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can't hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life. And Dorie has just been shockingly betrayed by the man she loved and trusted the most in the world…though this is just the tip of the iceberg of her problems and secrets. A month in North Carolina's Outer Banks is just what they each of them needs.

Ty Bazemore is their landlord, though he's hanging on to the rambling old beach house by a thin thread. After an inauspicious first meeting with Ellis, the two find themselves disturbingly attracted to one another, even as Ty is about to lose everything he's ever cared about.
Maryn Shackleford is a stranger, and a woman on the run. Maryn needs just a few things in life: no questions, a good hiding place, and a new identity. Ellis, Julia, and Dorie can provide what Maryn wants; can they also provide what she needs?
Mary Kay Andrews' novel is the story of five people questioning everything they ever thought they knew about life. Five people on a journey that will uncover their secrets and point them on the path to forgiveness. Five people who each need a sea change, and one month in a summer rental that might just give it to them.
Summer Rental is one of Library Journal's Best Women's Fiction Books of 2011

Summer Rental (Mary Kay Andrews) Book Reviews

Loved it!Could not put it down!!!.Score: 5/5

A great readLoved the book. Andrews does a great job building characters. Enough romance to make me happy and enough suspense to keep me reading. A book that leaves you warm and happy..Score: 5/5

Just OKI found myself trudging through this one, wishing there were less pages to get to the end. I wanted to see how things would play out but could have skipped about 10 chapters in the middle and not missed much..Score: 2/5

Summer rentalEnjoyable easy read.Score: 4/5

Easy read, great book!I read this back in 2012. It was my first by this author. It was a fun and easy read. Good storyline. I really enjoyed it and will read more by this author soon! I don’t read cheesy romance novels and while this definitely has romance, it’s far from cheesy. I really got to know the characters in the book and their long life friendship. Just a really great book!.Score: 5/5

Entertaining!I liked this book...a quick & entertaining read!.Score: 5/5

BoringTotally predictable story with unappealing, cliched characters and trite dialogue. I will sometimes pick up easy to read chick lit that doesn't tax the mind when on holiday and enjoy the stories, but this book is annoying. I am not sure I will finish it. I gave an extra star because it is not totally unreadable (when there is nothing else)..Score: 2/5

Good lite readingThis was a nice easy to read story. Just enough of everything one needs to keep their interest. A few loose ends that didn't get wrapped up but that leaves you hoping there will be a other story for this group down the road. This author's other work makes good reading too. Cozy up with a nice cup of tea and relax for a while with this book..Score: 4/5

Easy summer readI enjoyed reading this book I especially liked that it took place in The Outer Banks. My interest was held throughout the book. I do think some parts were not followed through like the turtles on the beach. I did like the reference to one of my favorite restaurants Tortouga Lie..Score: 4/5

Story of true friendshipLoved it! Couldn't put it down. I loved the characters & didn't want it to end..Score: 5/5

HorribleI can't believe I wasted my time with this book. The plotline was cliche and stupid, and the characters were so annoying and childish it was hard to believe they were supposedly 30-35 years old. It makes me fear the average intelligence of the population when I see all the good reviews this piece of garbage got. Do not waste your money on this-a teenager could come up with better!.Score: 1/5

Summer RentalAbsolutely fabulous! This was my summer reading, but like Ellis, I am a work alcoholic and I am just finishing the summer reading today, October 7, 2012. The book is great. Perhaps because I can relate to girls getting away for the week. Great reading....Score: 5/5
