Named a Notable Work of Fiction by The Washington Post
From the number one New York Times best-selling author of Big Summer comes another deliciously twisty novel of intrigue, secrets, and the transformative power of female friendship.
Daisy Shoemaker can’t sleep. With a thriving cooking business, full schedule of volunteer work, and a beautiful home in the Philadelphia suburbs, she should be content. But her teenage daughter can be a handful, her husband can be distant, her work can feel trivial, and she has lots of acquaintances, but no real friends. Still, Daisy knows she’s got it good. So why is she up all night?
While Daisy tries to identify the root of her dissatisfaction, she’s also receiving misdirected emails meant for a woman named Diana Starling, whose email address is just one punctuation mark away from her own. While Daisy’s driving carpools, Diana is chairing meetings. While Daisy’s making dinner, Diana’s making plans to reorganize corporations. Diana’s glamorous, sophisticated, single-lady life is miles away from Daisy’s simpler existence. When an apology leads to an invitation, the two women meet and become friends. But, as they get closer, we learn that their connection was not completely accidental. Who is this other woman, and what does she want with Daisy?
From the manicured Main Line of Philadelphia to the wild landscape of the Outer Cape, written with Jennifer Weiner’s signature wit and sharp observations, That Summer is a story about surviving our pasts, confronting our futures, and the sustaining bonds of friendship.

So much better than a beach read
I went into this story thinking I was going to get some nice mystery fluff, but this was so much better. Diana’s character really resonated with me, while some of the male characters infuriated me (to the point of me yelling “f* you” at my Alexa playing Vernon’s and Hal’s ramblings while I was cooking, much to the alarm of my partner). I just wish there could have been a suitably revengeful ending, but I guess this book was to realistic for that possibility. Still - good on Diana, good on the other Diana, and good on Beatrice.
