Mom's Read of the Week: The Summer We Read Gatsby
June 22, 2010
Headed to the beach? Take this summer read with you and enjoy the shore along with its characters.
Synopsis: When their aunt dies, two half-sisters come together to settle her estate: a ramshackle but well-loved cottage in the prestigious town of Southampton. When a painting disappears from the living room during a party, the sisters must come together to find it–and find something else their aunt meant for them to discover.
Why We Love It: The light mystery gives it intrigue, and the portrait of two adult sisters forming a new relationship is worthwhile. However, the real entertainment lies in the descriptions of summer parties–and their guests–in the Hamptons.
