Summers at the Saint

St. Martin’s. May 2024. 448p. ISBN 9781250278388. $29. F
Best seller Andrews (Beach Town) offers up another fun, heart-warming, and intriguing summer read. Resolute and determined, Traci is struggling to keep her late husband Hoke’s resort out of bankruptcy after his unexpected death. Located on the Eddings family’s private island off the coast of Georgia, the St. Cecelia resort was a fairy-tale dream to Traci when she was growing up in the neighboring working-class town. Marrying into the wealthy Eddings family brought the fairy tale closer but also posed new challenges for Traci. Now that Hoke is gone, his conniving older brother is trying to wrest control of the resort away from Traci. She must also compete with a new getaway in the area, while the St. Cecilia’s finances continue to dip further in the red. Then disaster strikes, and a tragic past incident involving a teenaged Traci and her now-estranged best friend Shannon threatens to come to light. Traci and her new St. Cecilia employees go into investigative mode to figure out what went wrong.
VERDICT For readers who’d enjoy a blend of friendships (old and new), budding romance, and secrets held within the walls of a hotel that needs rescuing, as in Elin Hilderbrand’s The Hotel Nantucket.
