*A National Bestseller*
When a DNA test reveals long-buried secrets, three generations of women reunite on Cape Cod for the homecoming of a lifetime.
Marin Bishop has always played by the rules, and it's paid off: at twenty-eight she has a handsome fiancé, a prestigious Manhattan legal career, and the hard-won admiration of her father. But one moment of weakness leaves Marin unemployed and alone, all in a single day. Then a woman claiming to be Marin's half-sister shows up, and it's all Marin can do not to break down completely. Seeking escape, Marin agrees to a road trip to meet the grandmother she never knew she had. As the summer unfolds at her grandmother's quaint beachside B&B, it becomes clear that the truth of her half-sister is just the beginning of revelations that will change Marin's life forever. THE FOREVER SUMMER is a delicious page-turner and a provocative exploration of what happens when our notions of love, truth, and family are put to the ultimate test.
Full of delicious descriptions of coastal New England and richly imagined characters, THE FOREVER SUMMER is an emotional, hot-topic page-turner and a summer must-read

Loved this book!!!
I loved this book so much that I finished it in one day. I instantly connected with the characters. This was the first book I've read by this author and I look forward to reading other novels by her. This was a great summer read and I would definitely recommend it!
I was immediately drawn into this book and couldn't put it down. Such a great cast of characters that were very likable and very real, each had their own story to tell, and the setting in Provincetown, MA had me yearning to be right there in that beach town running a bed and breakfast like the Beach Rose Inn. This book had a lot of heart, some surprises that I didn't see coming, but most of all I think it showed the importance of family, honesty and trust. This is definitely a great read and I highly recommend it!
I received an advance review copy of this book from NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
Best of Summer
I absolutely loved everything about "The Forever Summer" by Jamie Brenner! Kudos to Jamie for such a heartwarming and emotional read.
The genre of this novel is Women's Fiction.
The descriptions of the scenic beach were wonderful. One could certainly identify with the characters collecting seashells, and walking barefoot in the sand, or walking on the rocks by the water. The Beach Side Inn has such a cozy feel, with a close community of people.
The characters were flawed, complex, complicated with contrasts, similarities and differences. Most of the characters were likeable, and at times some were not likeable. I related to the characters, and their emotions.
Many of the topics in this novel are relevant today. What if by chance, you took a DNA test for the fun of it, and discovered the results were not what you thought.? What if it traced different familial lineage? What if you discovered secrets buried in your family that seemed like a betrayal? Imagine that you discovered new family members.
In "The Forever Summer", the author writes about family, betrayal, forgiveness, secrets, trust, loyalty, love and hope. This was such an endearing and emotional story and I would highly recommend it! I received an advanced copy for my honest review.
