Description

New York Times bestseller! Chosen as a best summer read by People, Redbook, Good Housekeeping, and Good Morning America.
 
Life's a bit of a beach these days for Ginger Walsh, who finds herself single at 41 and back home living in the family FROG (Finished Room Over Garage). She's hoping for a more fulfilling life as a sea glass artist, but mostly she's babysitting her sister's kids and sharing with Noah, her glassblower boyfriend with commitment issues and a dog Ginger's cat isn't too crazy about. Then a shark movie comes to town, and everyone is clamoring for a close-up.

"Midlife love, laughter, sibling rivalry and self-discovery . . . Goes down as easy as it sounds."— People

“A gleefully quirky coming-of-age story.”—Redbook

"A laugh-out-loud chick-lit confection.”—Good Housekeeping

"As always, Cook’s delightful way with dialogue and her deft demonstrations of how family members manage to support one another even while driving each other crazy, make reading this book a day at the beach.”—Hartford Courant

"A funny page-turner.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Perfect-for-the-beach summer novel. . . a bumpy delight."—Boston Common

“In this lighthearted, breezy read, Cook displays a wry sense of humor and knows how to write realistic characters."—Library Journal

"Claire Cook has an original voice, a sparkling style, and a window into family life that will make you laugh and cry. Life’s a Beach is filled with hilarity, sister love and sister hate, juicy arguments and hard-won reconciliations, but most of all, heart.”—Adriana Trigiani

"If I had a sister, I’d want her to be Claire Cook. If I had a summer, I’d want it to be the summer that two sisters stropped their tongues and sparred over everything from fertility to photography to family. And if I could follow up the wry, wacky poignancy of Must Love Dogs with any book, it would be Life’s a Beach. Claire Cook is wicked good.”—Jacquelyn Mitchard

“Life's a Beach is a delicious coming-of-age novel—about two forty-something sisters who don't quite manage that feat until it’s almost too late. I devoured this slice of family life served up in Claire Cook’s inimitably warm and witty style. Tender, touching, and terribly, terribly, funny!”—Mary Kay Andrews
