Bonny Blankenship's most treasured memories are of idyllic summers spent in Water's End, South Carolina, with her best friend Lainey McKay, swimming, or reading at the local bookshop. Until the night that changed everything, the night that Lainey's mother disappeared. Now, in her early fifties, Bonny is desperate to clear her head after a tragic mistake threatens her career as an emergency room doctor, and her marriage crumbles around her. With her troubled teenage daughter, Piper, in tow, she returns to the beloved river house, and is joined by Lainey and her two young children. Reuniting with bookshop owner Mimi, the three women cling to a fragile peace as buried secrets and long ago loves return like the tide.

Two best friends return to a summer vacation home in South Carolina where they spent a few idyllic summers. The women resolve the past with the women they have become in the present day. Sometimes 'past meets the future' books become a bit tiresome, but this one kept me interested and had a good story line.

A family drama set in a cute little beach town with a dreamy bookstore. Filled with female characters who love, support and forgive each other, plus a little mystery thrown in. Told from different POVs - the Doctor Mom who may lose her job due to a tragic mistake. The artsy Mom who can't stop looking for her own mother who disappeared when she was a child. The angsty teenager trying to figure out who she is and what she wants out of life. Good summer read/chick lit.
