The cover of this book is very tranquil but the story is anything but. After her grandmother dies Jess returns to the family cottage in a lakeside community to sort it out ready to sell. It is pretty much in its' original condition which excites Russ (boyfriend) no end. He is forceful, inviting himself along and is such a shallow, unlike able man. The book tells the story from three perspectives - Mamie (grandmother) and Jess aged 17 and 33, so gradually all the secrets are revealed. Great descriptions, easy to read, enjoyable story too. I would like to read more books by this author.
