Cat is young, living an exciting life in PR – parties, drinking and hangovers. When her mother reveals a life-changing secret, Cat goes to Nantucket to learn more. But her alcoholism spirals out of control. Summer Secrets is emotional, tragic and exhausting – in true Jane Green fashion. Green takes the everyday struggle of alcoholism and makes it so real – and in flashback style, Summer Secrets takes the reader from Cat’s young struggles to her 40s. If you’re looking for a deep, emotional read – this is for you, but not if you want some action and fun.

Summer Secrets: A Novel is available on Amazon.
