We’re heading off to a destination wedding at one of the most beautiful locations in the world in Anita Hughes’ new novel, SANTORINI SUNSETS (St.MartinsPress). The Greek Island of Santorini plays host to New York City and East Hamptons Socialite, Brigit Palmer and Hollywood movie-hunk, Blake Crawford’s wedding.
Brigit’s parents rent a villa for what she believes will be a small gathering of friends, until her ex-husband/writer, Nathaniel arrives telling her he’s there to photograph the event for HELLO! magazine for $2 million dollars (donated to charity). Brigit begins seeing guests arrive that she didn’t invite. Vanderbilts, Rockefellers and politicians will be spending time with Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Reynolds, a bunch of Hollywood’s A-list. It’s going to be the event of the decade.
Over the course of the weekend leading up to wedding, Brigit begins to learn things about Blake that she never knew, including he says he told her about the HELLO! article, and she becomes unsettled.
At the same time, there are several other narratives going on. Are her parents as wealthy as it appears? Should Brigit’s sister, Daisy figure out what she wants from life by now?
And the story is told in Anita’s wonderful style that we’ve come to love and expect from her – beautiful, designer clothing, fine, palate pleasing cuisine and gorgeous descriptions of the locale. Anita writes like a painter; I can visualize her words, as I read her prose. SANTORINI SUNSETS is as all her novels are, about love and trust, but this time, Anita focuses much of the narrative on family.
For all things ANITA, check her out on Facebook or website http://firstname.lastname@example.org or on twitter @hughesanita SANTORINI SUNSETS will be published Tuesday, August 2nd.
