Brenda Novak recently went on a book tour promoting her new release, SUMMER ON THE ISLAND. She had 13 stops in 16 days. She partnered with Independent Bookstores.

Summer on the Island by Brenda Novak
MIRA (April 5, 2022)
ABOUT THE BOOK:
For fans of Elin Hilderbrand and Nancy Thayer, New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak’s newest standalone novel about friendship, family and the ties that bind and challenge us follows three friends as they escape to a coastal Florida town for the summer.
Marlo Madsen has just been through a global pandemic that turned her life—and the lives of almost everyone she knows—upside down. Her beloved father has died from COVID. Helping her mother, who has MS, handle his estate means returning to the small coastal Florida town where she was raised.
Having just left her job as a divorce attorney—which paid well but showed her too much of the worst in people—she’s invited two friends to join her for a seaside summer. The two friends are also facing huge life changes after the worsening California wildfires took everything from them, and need to decompress and recuperate. And travel has long been forbidden, so they are beyond appreciative for the ability to escape.
Unfortunately, a restful summer doesn’t seem to be in the cards, especially when Marlo learns about a special provision in her father’s will that reveals he has a love child with Rosemarie, the housekeeper who’s worked for the family for years. Rosemarie’s son was around while Marlo was growing up, but she never suspected a thing. Nobody did. And once the news is revealed, the fallout will cause waves big enough to topple two families and a whole community.

I really enjoyed Summer on the Island. As stated in the blurb it is centered around a summer of healing, friendship, love, and a secret. Full of flawed characters who each bring their own baggage to the story and are woven together perfectly in the story. This is one of my favorite Brenda Novak reads.
