Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Falling and The Sunshine Sisters comes a timely novel about the challenges of starting over.

In the Gold Coast town of Highfield, Connecticut, recent divorcée Kit Hargrove has joyfully exchanged the requisite diamond studs and Persian rugs of a “Wall Street Widow” for her true dream home: a clapboard Cape with sea green shutters and sprawling impatiens. Her kids are content, her ex cooperative, and each morning she wakes up to her dream job assisting novelist Robert McClore.

But when a figure from the past arrives just as the shifting financial market turns Highfield upside down, Kit is forced to realize that her blissfully constructed life and blossoming new romance aren’t as foolproof as she thought...

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 15, 2009 – In the latest inviting summer read from bestseller Green (The Beach House), divorced mom Kit Hargrove learns about family, love, and the price of secrets while rediscovering passion for life and her small Connecticut beach town. As the off-season begins, Kit is still recovering from the breakup of her marriage (to solicitous but work-obsessed Adam), working for famously reclusive author Robert McClore, and practicing yoga with her new friend Tracy. Upheaval soon arrives in the form of a mysterious new boyfriend and a long-lost sister, as well as a scandalous secret regarding Kit's much-desired employer. Green's newest has all the right elements for a sun-baked afternoon of reading: sandy locales, hints of sex and scandal, and lots of strong female characters. With three main plots, however, Green tries to pack in too much story, ultimately shortchanging her characters and her readers.

Customer Reviews

Meh

Dune Road, I feel, is predictable and anticlimactic. The antagonists are obvious from the very beginning, and though Green tries to create mystery and scandal, it all falls apart rather unspectacularly in the end. Also, the intertwining of characters, even for a small town, is completely implausible.
