Cat and Jemima J (no spoilers for Summer Secrets)
Synopsis of Summer Secrets: When a shocking family secret is revealed, twenty-something journalist Cat Coombs finds herself falling into a dark spiral. Wild, glamorous nights out in London and raging hangovers the next day become her norm, leading to a terrible mistake one night while visiting family in America, on the island of Nantucket. It's a mistake for which she can't forgive herself. When she returns home, she confronts the unavoidable reality of her life and knows it's time to grow up. But she doesn't know if she'll ever be able to earn the forgiveness of the people she hurt.
As the years pass, Cat grows into her forties, a struggling single mother, coping with a new-found sobriety and determined to finally make amends. Traveling back to her past, to the family she left behind on Nantucket all those years ago, she may be able to earn their forgiveness, but in doing so she may risk losing the very people she loves the most.
Told with Jane Green's keen eye for detailing the emotional landscape of the heart, Summer Secrets is at once a compelling drama and a beautifully rendered portrait of relationships, betrayals, and forgiveness; about accepting the things we cannot change, finding the courage to change the things we can, and being strong enough to weather the storms.

Amy's top five favorite things about Jane Green:
1. She's extremely personable and approachable. I met Jane at a signing a couple of years ago, as well as at a signing for Wade Rouse's compilation, I'm Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship, back in September of 2011. At the Wade Rouse event, Jane knew who I was right away and that I was with Chick Lit Central!
2. Well, of course she's a wonderful writer and storyteller. Her books are just fabulous. Speaking of her books, why hasn't one of them been turned into a movie yet? I hope this gets rectified soon!
3. All I have to say is that Jane Green's house in Connecticut is just gorgeous. Check out pictures of Figless Manor and learn the story behind it.
4. She also cooks some fabulous food. She has a Kickstarter campaign for her cookbook, Good Taste, Good Food, A Good Life. Learn more about it, but not on an empty stomach. ;)
5. I was SO excited when I saw that Jane Green mentioned both Melissa A and I in her Saving Grace acknowledgements. What an honor! My excitement lasted for quite a while.
Melissa A's top five favorite Jane Green novels:
1. Jemima J: This book got me started on reading Jane's novels and also motivated me to exercise. There's a reason women sigh contentedly when they hear this title spoken aloud. It's THAT good!
2. Bookends: What book lover doesn't dream of opening her own store? Live the dream vicariously through this novel.
3. Babyville: If a close friend's pregnancy (back in 2004) didn't inspire me to want a baby of my own, then this book sure did the trick. I love how it was told from three different perspectives and all the characters were endearing to me.
4. To Have and to Hold: This was just a heartfelt novel about a marriage gone wrong and Jane's beautiful writing just flowed throughout the story, giving me hope that something good would come of Alice's situation.
5. Another Piece of My Heart: I really like how it not only showed Andi's perspective, but also her step-daughter Emily's. I ended up liking them both as a result. (See my review.)
