#1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Author

Posted January 13, 2022

Dear Reader,

In a mere two months, my next book, The Summer Getaway, will be out—the story of Robyn, a mom who, as deeply as she loves her family and friends, needs an escape, just for a little bit. She needs to press reset on her life. So when her great-aunt Lillian invites her to sun-drenched Santa Barbara, Robyn hops on the first plane. But it’s hard to get away when you’re the heart of the family. One by one, everyone she left behind follows her across the country, bringing their problems along for her to solve.

Robyn is for all of you readers who have asked for a heroine who’s a little more seasoned. She’s in her 40s and has seen her share of heartache and loss. She’s not just ready for the next chapter in her life—she’s going to write it.

I truly believe this is one you’ll want for your keeper shelves. The Summer Getaway will hit bookstore shelves on March 15.
