Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Anthony Puckett was a rising literary star. The son of an über-famous thriller writer, Anthony's debut novel spent two years on the bestseller list and won the adoration of critics. But something went very wrong with his second work. Now Anthony's borrowing an old college friend's crumbling beach house on Block Island in the hopes that solitude will help him get back to the person he used to be. Joy Sousa owns and runs Block Island's beloved whoopie pie café. She came to this quiet space eleven years ago, newly divorced and with a young daughter, and built a life for them here. To her customers and friends, Joy is a model of independence, hard-working and happy. And mostly she is. But this summer she's thrown off balance. A food truck from a famous New York City brand is roving around the island, selling goodies, and threatening her business.

    Block Island is the year-round home of Joy Sousa and her daughter Maggie, the summer home of Lu Trusdale and her family, and a temporary place of solitude for former best-selling author Anthony Puckett as he decides what's next after a career-ending mistake. For Joy, who owns a whoopee pie business, a little competition has come to town for the summer; meanwhile, Lu runs a secretly successful food blog. And Anthony, trying to figure out where to turn, isn't expecting to run into Joy, who turns his already unsteady path upside-down. This summer on Block Island is memorable, particularly as a storm approaches, stirring up more than just sand. Moore (The Captain's Daughter, 2017) has crafted a beautifully in-depth novel chronicling the intersection of the lives of three strangers during one fateful summer. Her characters are strong, and the realistic situations are both heartfelt and heartbreaking. Moore handles the emotional conflict of a divorced father, a rocky married couple, and a single mother with delicate care. An excellent combination of character exploration and intrigue.
