This book takes place in 1932 and 1938 alternating between these two years. The main protagonists are Budgie and Lily two close friends living on the upper east side of NY and summering in New England. A love triangle develops between them and a handsome young man named Nick Greenwald. It's a great beach read full of romance, intrigue and the famous hurricane of 1938 that destroyed a whole beach community in New England. I have already read the Secret Life of Violet Grant by the same author, Beatriz Williams, and I want to read her other book, Overseas in the near future. She is a very good writer.

This is a book that doesn't tax the reader with either the storyline or the characters. It is the perfect vacation or beach read.

Loved it...absolutely loved it. Not only did I learn about an new author, I found a new topic to research. This book was inspired from Super storm Sandy. It is however about the 1938 hurricane that devastated New England. In it is a love story with racism, distorted friendships, secrets, and lies. Once you think you figured it out Beatriz has more twists for you. Great book.

This is a great summer read and I'm sad that I neglected to read it during the summer. This book is well written and a surprising page turner - an all around enjoyable read.

That was a page turner! Took me only three days to finish it. Very well written, engaging and fun read. The characters did seem a bit stereotypical ("good boy", "bad boy", "good girl", "bad girl"), it still was a very enjoyable read.
