|Summary, etc.:||"In Philadelphia, good girl Kate is dumped by her fiancé the day she learns she is pregnant with his child. In New York City, beautiful stay-at-home mom Vanessa finds herself obsessively searching the Internet for news of an old flame. And in San Francisco, Dani, the wild child and aspiring writer who can't seem to put down a book-- or a cocktail-- long enough to open her laptop, has just been fired again. In an effort to regroup, Kate, Vanessa, and Dani retreat to the New Jersey beach town where they once spent their summers. Emboldened by the seductive cadences of the shore, the women begin to realize just how much their lives, and friendships, have been shaped by the choices they made one fateful night on the beach eight years earlier-- and the secrets that only now threaten to surface" -- from author's web page.|

Kate Harrington finds out she's pregnant minutes after her fiancÃ© dumps her. Vanessa Warren loves being a stay-at-home mom, but she can't stop thinking about her college ex. Dani Lowenstein might be living the writer's life in San Francisco, but she can't hold down a job, and her taste for drugs and alcohol is becoming more pressing than fun. The three women, childhood friends who have drifted from their Philadelphia private-school roots, decide to reunite for Fourth of July weekend at Dani's father's beach house in Avalon, New Jersey, like they did as girls. Vanessa and Dani want to support Kate with a fun, forget-about-him girls' weekend, but none of the women can escape the growing tension in the friendship or the specter of Kate's twin brother, Colin, who died eight years before on a similar Avalon summer weekend. Donohue captures the beauty and frustration of reconnecting with old friendsâthey know you so well, and they don't know you at all. Perfect for a staycation for readers who like the beachy drama of Elin Hilderbrand and Susan Wiggs. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
