A Week at the Lake

WeekLake_comps.inddIdgie Says:
Wendy once again pulls together a group of characters that while struggling through issues - mainly of their own making - they remain closely bonded with each other and always go for the greater good.  

This story involves a famous actress, a behind the scenes but also famous voice actress and an inspiring fashion designer.  Also, a most adorable Russian body builder/nurse.   These are the main characters with a swirling of others surrounding them.  People that love them, people that want to use them and others that simply want to put themselves first.  The actress's family is a pile of.......... well, you'll find out. 

There is a secret that could tear apart their entire friendship - 20 years down the drain.  The question  is whether this secret should come out at all, is there a need for it or will it just stir up too much hurt and anger to recover from. 

A fine example of  "woman's fiction" and perfect for a summer read.

From the USA Today bestselling author of The House on Mermaid Point comes a powerful novel about secrets, loyalty, and the bonds of true friendship . . .  

Twenty years ago, Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes, and Serena Stockton bonded over their New York City dreams. Then, each summer, they solidified their friendship by spending one week at the lake together, solving their problems over bottles of wine and gallons of ice cream. They kept the tradition for years, until jealousy, lies, and life’s disappointments made them drift apart.

It’s been five years since Emma has seen her friends, an absence designed to keep them from discovering a long-ago betrayal. Now she’s in desperate need of their support. The time has come to reveal her secrets—and hopefully rekindle their connection.

But when a terrible accident keeps Emma from saying her piece, Serena and Mackenzie begin to learn about the past on their own. Now, to heal their friendship and their broken lives, the three women will have to return to the lake that once united them, and discover which relationships are worth holding on to . . .
