Book Description:
Charlotte and Nicole were once the best of friends, spending summers together in Nicole's coastal island house off of Maine. But many years, and many secrets, have kept the women apart. A successful travel writer, single Charlotte lives on the road, while Nicole, a food blogger, keeps house in Philadelphia with her surgeon-husband, Julian.

When Nicole is commissioned to write a book about island food, she invites her old friend Charlotte back to Quinnipeague, for a final summer, to help. Outgoing and passionate, Charlotte has a gift for talking to people and making friends, and Nicole could use her expertise for interviews with locals. Missing a genuine connection, Charlotte agrees.

Idgie Says:
This a nice hearty book on growing internally and finding yourself and discovering what you want truly want out of life.

Charlotte lacks warmth in life by the way of human connection - while she does happen to have a kick-ass job, traveling the world, seeing new sites and photographing for the likes of National Geographic, she's  a World Traveler, but lonely.

Nicole is a food blogger with a beautiful home, beautiful husband, and longings she's not understanding. She wants more.  She also wants to find a way to get her best friend back into her life.

Second chances come for both when Nicole invites Charlotte to an island of their youth to help write a cookbook.  An opportunity to find themselves and their friendship again.

It's a nice book on human feelings and love.   Definitely a woman relationship novel.
