“Weiner, the undisputed boss of the beach read, is back with another stunner.” —The New York Times

That Summer Is Your *IDEAL* Beach Read.” —Cosmopolitan

Named a Most Anticipated Book of Spring 2021 by Marie Claire, Bustle, Good Morning America, CNN, PopSugar, Good Housekeeping, Frolic, Country Living, and Working Mother

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Summer comes another deliciously twisty novel of intrigue, secrets, and the transformative power of female friendship.

Daisy Shoemaker can’t sleep. With a thriving cooking business, full schedule of volunteer work, and a beautiful home in the Philadelphia suburbs, she should be content. But her teenage daughter can be a handful, her husband can be distant, her work can feel trivial, and she has lots of acquaintances, but no real friends. Still, Daisy knows she’s got it good. So why is she up all night?

While Daisy tries to identify the root of her dissatisfaction, she’s also receiving misdirected emails meant for a woman named Diana Starling, whose email address is just one punctuation mark away from her own. While Daisy’s driving carpools, Diana is chairing meetings. While Daisy’s making dinner, Diana’s making plans to reorganize corporations. Diana’s glamorous, sophisticated, single-lady life is miles away from Daisy’s simpler existence. When an apology leads to an invitation, the two women meet and become friends. But, as they get closer, we learn that their connection was not completely accidental. Who IS this other woman, and what does she want with Daisy?

From the manicured Main Line of Philadelphia to the wild landscape of the Outer Cape, written with Jennifer Weiner’s signature wit and sharp observations, That Summer is a story about surviving our pasts, confronting our futures, and the sustaining bonds of friendship.

- That Summer5 star

A fast read and current subject, I enjoyed the character developments and the book

- Wow.1 star

Learn to keep your misinformed opinion to yourself. Shameful

- Boring1 star

Imposible to finish

- Okay book3 star

I’ve read all this authors books and this one was okay. The subject needs to be talked about but this book really dragged on. I almost didn’t finish the book

- Political nonsense1 star

Shame on Jennifer Weiner to use a story about rape to preach her uninformed political views. Her character watched all of the Kavanaugh trial. Did she?! Every sane minded person knew it was a farce. Mrs. Ford’s own called upon witnesses said it didn’t happen. God forbid Jennifer Weiner used Harvey Weinstein as her lead example. He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to over 20 years in prison! Maybe it would have cost her a movie deal to offend him & his cronies? Shameful.

I was enjoying this book until I read the part about Bret Kavanaugh. That ruined the book for me. Why didn’t the author talk about Harvey Weinstein or Epstein? I won’t ever purchase another one of her books.

- Ugh2 star

So tedious. I couldn’t finish it.

- “That Summer” is that book you can’t forget5 star

For those who can’t go to the outer cape of Massachusetts this summer, writer Jennifer Weirner’s newest book brings it to you along with a little bit of a mystery and lots of female friendships. The characters are so relatable that I felt like all of my new best buds had suddenly all moved away when the story ended.And I was frantic for a visit to catch up with all that they must be doing now. Just don’t read it on a empty stomach because the food descriptions will have you cooking faster than rewatching Martha Stewart holiday specials. The book had just enough of those to wet by appetite but not so much that I felt like I gained weight by the time I finished the story. Once you have read it, be prepared to want to buy a few extra copies to share with your real life friends so you will have someone ready to discuss the events of the book.
