#1 NY TIMES Bestselling Ebook!

Readers who enjoy books by Luanne Rice, Kristin Hannah and Susan Wiggs will enjoy this emotional and compelling story of family secrets and romantic adventure from award-winning author Barbara Freethy.

This is a full length novel of approximately 100,000 words.

From the back cover:

There are secrets meant to be shared and those that must be kept forever ...

Bestselling author Barbara Freethy presents her most powerful contemporary novel - the story of three unique sisters ... the secrets that bind them for life ... and the summer that will set them free.

Eight years ago, the three McKenna sisters - Kate, Ashley, and Caroline - had their fifteen minutes of fame. Driven by their ambitious father, they won an around-the-world sailing race as teenagers. But something happened out on the turbulent sea - during a fierce storm they could never forget ...

Now Tyler Jamison has come to Castleton, a picturesque island off the coast of Washington State, asking questions about the famous McKennas. But even as the sisters close ranks against the tenacious reporter, the past threatens to drown them in its wake. It will take Caroline's willingness to right a wrong, Ashley's struggle to face her greatest fears, and Kate's attempt to embrace life - and love - again to finally calm the winds and stop the rain...

Reviews:

"Freethy's zesty storytelling will keep readers hooked, and the sisters' loving but prickly interactions will make anyone with a sibling smile." Publishers Weekly

"Freethy skillfully keeps the reader on the hook, and her tantalizing and believable tale has it all - romance, adventure, and mystery." Booklist

"Freethy is at the top of her form. Fans of Nora Roberts will find a similar tone here, framed in Freethy's own spare, elegant style." Contra Costa Times

"SUMMER SECRETS is a knock-your-socks-off tale of deception, family, and love. Master storyteller Barbara Freethy draws readers into the characters' lives on the first page and keeps them engrossed and enthralled to the end. This riveting tale of love and forgiveness, of letting go and beginning anew will resonate in readers' hearts long after the last page is turned." Romance Reviews Today

"SUMMER SECRETS is a marvelous story about relationships, especially the strong bond between three sisters and their father who has fallen from grace." ReaderToReader.com
