As the summer ends, friendship begins…
When single mom Joy Lee abandoned her old life to take a job at a lakeside resort, she found something that her family’s wealth and influence could never buy: peace of mind. Not easy to come by for the once-burned divorcée who keeps everyone at a distance. But when her new friend, Maris, dares her to take a chance with the drive-in’s charismatic new owner, everything changes for Joy and her young son.
A difficult childhood has left Maris Kennedy with definite priorities. Her job running Summer’s End, the camp store and café, comes first. Always. Nothing could ever make her risk that hard-won security—especially not her free-spirited colleague. But the more she encourages Joy to open herself up to new experiences, the more Maris begins to wonder what she, too, might be missing.
Learning how to trust will bring Joy and Maris together. And soon they form a friendship that leaves them as close as sisters—and open to love where they least expect it…in Summer’s End.
Heartwarming, emotive, and rewarding.
Sisters of Summer’s End is an engaging, lighthearted tale that features the hardworking, single mom Joy and the dependable, supportive Maris as they forge an unconditional friendship that will help them both conquer and embrace past hurts, childhood baggage, strained familial relationships, and newly budding romance.
The prose is crisp and fluid. The characters are easygoing, helpful, and likeable. And the plot is a heartfelt tale of life, love, support, understanding, tenderness, familial drama, friendship, steamy moments, playful banter, and delicious chemistry.
Overall, Sisters of Summer’s End is a sweet, uplifting, humorous addition to the Love at the Resort series by Foster that will leave fans delighted to revisit with all the characters they came to know and love in the first novel in the series, Cooper’s Charm, as well as being introduced to some unforgettable new ones, both of the human and four-legged variety.
This novel will be available on June 11, 2019.
