In the grand scheme of things, it really wasn’t such a terrible mistake. People slept with the wrong people every day of the week and somehow the world managed to keep on turning. Ellen and Hall had been good friends and co-workers before last night, and there was no reason to think their friendship couldn’t survive a night of passion..
After one thousand six hundred and eighty-five mornings of waking up alone, Ellen found herself in bed with the one man who could break her heart and not even the Goddess of the Morning After could rewind the tape back to last night before they made their fatal mistake.
There wasn’t a soul in Shelter Rock Cove who wouldn’t know what they had been up to when she drove home down the main street wearing the same clothes she had worn to the Butlers’ christening party. And, to make matters worse, her car had spent the night in Hall’s driveway. She might as well have hung a flag from his bedroom window with the words “Dr. Ellen Slept Here” embroidered across it in big scarlet letters.
Add a wayward sister with a hundred pound dog named Stanley, a mechanic with his eye on the stars, some very nosy neighbors and all the colorful characters you fell in love with in A Soft Place to Fall and summer in Shelter Rock Cove is about to get very interesting . . .
"...a book readers will want to savor."
"I highly recommend that discriminating readers pay a visit to these Girls of Summer."
--Susan Scribner - The Romance Reader
"The bonds of family and sisterhood are exquisitely explored in Bretton's latest. The warmth, strength and human frailties of her characters make for rich and rewarding reading."
--Jill M. Smith - Romantic Times
