Tomorrow is the first day of summer and it wouldn’t be summer without a book from the queen of summer reads, Mary Kay Andrews. HELLO SUMMER (StMartinsPress) is a  delicious story of love, friendship and … skinny-dipping!

It’s a new season…

Conley Hawkins left her family’s small town newspaper, The Silver Bay Beacon, in the rearview mirror years ago. Now a star reporter for a big-city paper, Conley is exactly where she wants to be and is about to take a fancy new position in Washington, D.C. Or so she thinks.

For small town scandals…

When the new job goes up in smoke, Conley finds herself right back where she started, working for her sister, who is trying to keep The Silver Bay Beacon afloat―and she doesn’t exactly have warm feelings for Conley. Soon she is given the unenviable task of overseeing the local gossip column, “Hello, Summer.”

And big-time secrets.

Then Conley witnesses an accident that ends in the death of a local congressman―a beloved war hero with a shady past. The more she digs into the story, the more dangerous it gets. As an old heartbreaker causes trouble and a new flame ignites, it soon looks like their sleepy beach town is the most scandalous hotspot of the summer.

Small towns with big drama and secrets, HELLO SUMMER has it all. Pick up a copy and pop it into your beach bag and head to the shore, pool or comfy outside chair. I’d pair reading HELLO, SUMMER with a nice chilled Sauvignon Blanc. Cheers!

1991:She worked as a reporter at a number of papers, and spent 11 years as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution before leaving to write fiction full-time in 1991.
2002:She published ten mystery novels under her own name between 1992 and 2000, and switched to the Andrews pen name in 2002 to author Savannah Blues, which marked a change in her style to more Southern-flavored themes.

  3. Our annual beach camping trip was just cancelled due to the pandemic so the girlz are scrambling for an alternative. Always good to have a great read along.
