Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Mary Kay Andrews

Narrated By: Kathleen McInerney

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Date: May 2016

Duration: 15 hours 28 minutes


Some people stay all summer long on the idyllic island of Belle Isle, North Carolina. Some people come only for the weekends-and it's something they look forward to all week long. When Riley Griggs is waiting for her husband to arrive at the ferry one Friday afternoon, she is instead served with papers informing her that her island home is being foreclosed. To make matters worse, her husband is nowhere to be found. She turns to her island friends for help and support, but each of them has their own secrets and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens. Cocktail parties and crab boil aside, Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Island, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything.

    I loved this book overall. It's a little bit of mystery with romantic in it; easy to listen too. It's great for a beach read. I've listen to this 3 times and enjoyed it each time.

    One of the worst and longest books ever. I thought it would be more suspenseful. The mystery was wrapped up very quickly at the end after a lot of "filler". I did not like the characters. Maggie the daughter was horrible.

  • Christina Boyd

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book, well narrated and good story line. Easy listening and definitely a great travel companion on a long bus trip

  • Briahna Taylor

    Great book - for lovers of Elin Hildebrand - this gets close to her storylines/writing.

  • Lynn Detering

    Really enjoyed book. Good listening while not bogging you down with names and places you can't remember from chapter to chapter. Keeps you entertained from beginning to end

  • Samantha Brown

    I really liked listening to this book, it was a good book to get your mind off things and perfect for a solo road trip ;)

    Entertaining. While it's not great literature, it's better than most beach books. I could relate to Riley because I have a friend whose husband turned out to be a swindler. It's hard to deal with your anger, the daughter's grief, and the town's pity. But I think a good lawyer could have kept her home off the auction block. Excellent narration.

    Another great book by one of my favorite authors! A relaxing summer read that was fun, light, and a real page turner.
