Spotlight and Giveaway: A Week at the Lake

From the USA Today bestselling author of The House on Mermaid Point comes a powerful novel about secrets, loyalty, and the bonds of true friendship . . .

Twenty years ago, Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes, and Serena Stockton bonded over their New York City dreams. Then, each summer, they solidified their friendship by spending one week at the lake together, solving their problems over bottles of wine and gallons of ice cream. They kept the tradition for years, until jealousy, lies, and life’s disappointments made them drift apart.

It’s been five years since Emma has seen her friends, an absence designed to keep them from discovering a long-ago betrayal. Now she’s in desperate need of their support. The time has come to reveal her secrets—and hopefully rekindle their connection.

But when a terrible accident keeps Emma from saying her piece, Serena and Mackenzie begin to learn about the past on their own. Now, to heal their friendship and their broken lives, the three women will have to return to the lake that once united them, and discover which relationships are worth holding on to.


Wendy Wax, a former broadcaster, is the USA Today bestselling author of ten novels, including While We Were Watching Downton Abbey, Ten Beach Road, and Ocean Beach. The mother of two college-age sons, she lives in the Atlanta suburbs with her husband, and is doing her best to adjust to the quiet of her recently emptied nest. Visit Wendy at her website, Facebook, and Twitter.

I always enjoy lunches together because it's relaxing and you can talk and catch up.

Sitting around the kitchen table with a good cup of coffee, catching up while telling the kids in the room to scatter so you can tell the real truths.

My favorite things to do with friends are exercising together while talking nonstop, having lunch together nonstop, or talking about books we love nonstop. :)

My favorite way is definitely a trip to the beach - but I'll settle for a dink or coffee and an hour to chat.
