Karen White

The supermodel and senator’s wife is trying to repair her image after a DUI — with a Suburban full of other people’s children.

With the help of their mutual friend Miriam, a powerful attorney turned ‘stay at home mom,’ they navigate the social landmines of life in America’s favorite suburb on steroids, revealing the truths — and the lies — that simmer just below the glittering surface.

With her signature wit, the author offers a dazzling look at a world where nothing is as it appears.

Dreams of Falling by Karen White book coverOn the heels of two New York Times bestsellers in 2017, Karen White returns with one of her best summer reads yet.

Dreams of Falling tells the story of three young women, who constrained by the small town expectations of the 1950’s South, plan a last grab at freedom — a graduation trip to Myrtle Beach.

But, one summer night on the boardwalk will change everything and result in consequences that will ripple through three generations.

Known for evocative novels that move fluidly back and forth through time, White’s latest offers a wonderful sense of place, compelling characters, and “a past-and-present love story expertly wrapped in mystery.”

In Hannah MacKinnon’s Sailing Lessons, we are transported from the Lowcountry of South Carolina to the shores of Cape Cod where the Bailey sisters reunite with their long absent father.

Sailing Lessons cover by Hannah McKinnonIn this heartfelt novel,20 years have passed since Caleb, a brilliant but troubled, photographer, walked out on his family. Now suffering from pancreatic cancer and seeking absolution, he returns.

Old wounds cause the tight-knit Bailey women to confront their own wishes and wants, and admit to their own wrong-doings over the years.

In a place that brings both great comfort and great pain, the Bailey sisters experience a summer on the Cape that promises not only hard endings, but perhaps, hopeful new beginnings.
