🍒My Summer Darlings

We went to Napa on Saturday for gardening with grandma and Austin and I left and went on a date. We went to Forge and got this yummy watermelon salad and strawberry puree vodka cocktail. We ended up walking 12k steps on the River walk into downtown and could hear some of Bottlerock.
Thought it would be fitting since that’s my hometown where I grew up and these 3 ladies still live in their hometown. So many memories made and still best friends from when they were young.
When a handsome new man moves into the large house on the street everyone is curious. But one of the girls is very interested and the others are a little flirty or not sure. But it’s hard to tell if he’s what he seems. There’s so much wine and gossip and sexy clothes in this small Texas town.
I wasn’t expecting that dark twist at the end and how quickly things got out of control. Jeez. I mean the first chapter you know someone was in trouble but dude get over yourself.
This book was so steamy and I got wrapped up in all the relationships but I’m wondering how many other places this person might have done this certain play. Have the major creeps.
❓ Do you like to garden?
Thank you berkleypub and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Three lifelong friends plus a dangerous, sexy new stranger in town add up to a scorching summer of manipulation, obsession, and murder, from the acclaimed author of The Hunting Wives.
A woman in the forest thinks she’s going to die.
I know he’s coming back for me.
Jen Hansen, Kittie Spears, and Cynthia Nichols have been friends since childhood. They are now approaching forty and their lives have changed, but their insular East Texas town has not. They stay sane by drinking wine in the afternoons, dishing about other women in the neighborhood, and bonding over the heartache of their own encroaching middle age and raising ungrateful teens.
Then Will Harding comes to town, moving into one of the neighborhood’s grandest homes. Mysterious and charming, he seems like the answer to each woman’s prayers. He’s a source of fascination for Jen, Kittie, and Cynthia, but none of them are ready for the way Will disrupts their lives.
As Will grows closer with each of the women, their fascination twists into obsession, threatening their friendships and their families. When he abruptly pulls away, each woman scrambles to discover the source of his affection. But what they’ll uncover is far more sinister and deadly than any of them could have ever imagined.
