The story centers around a Mother who brings her two grown daughters and her Sister together for a long stay on Tuckernut to bond one more time before the wedding of one of her girls. India, Birdie, Chess and Tate each come full of personality, secrets, desires and search for answers at their ancestral home, now almost deserted but for the ghosts of relatives and their own memories. Grab your beach towel and umbrella, and don't forget to take along this great beach read!

OK, 90 degrees today in the New Canaan area! Good day to grab an icy Swedish thriller and sit by the pool, the beach, the woods. If you have'nt already started the Steig Larsson books "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" group you are one of only a few left. Lead character Lizbeth Salander will take you on a ride you won't soon forget....and then just when you think it's over, two more books join the pack,"The Girl Who Played With Fire" and "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest." She is a heroine for the 21st century.
