Synopsis from Goodreads: It’s a new season...
Conley Hawkins left her family’s small town newspaper, The Silver Bay Beacon, in the rearview mirror years ago. Now a star reporter for a big-city paper, Conley is exactly where she wants to be and is about to take a fancy new position in Washington, D.C. Or so she thinks.
For small town scandals...
When the new job goes up in smoke, Conley finds herself right back where she started, working for her sister, who is trying to keep The Silver Bay Beacon afloat—and she doesn’t exactly have warm feelings for Conley. Soon she is given the unenviable task of overseeing the local gossip column, “Hello, Summer.”And big-time secrets.Then Conley witnesses an accident that ends in the death of a local congressman—a beloved war hero with a shady past. The more she digs into the story, the more dangerous it gets. As an old heartbreaker causes trouble and a new flame ignites, it soon looks like their sleepy beach town is the most scandalous hotspot of the summer
My Review: This was such a fun summer read! I liked Conley right away and the rest of the characters really grew on me as I read.I thought the mystery was well done and I enjoyed the romance. The only issue I had with the book was that it was longer than it needed it to be. The beginning could have been a lot shorter and that would have made it a better read. Overall though I really enjoyed it and definitely recommend this as a fun summer read!
