Synopsis from Goodreads: For thirty-year-old Frankie Simon, selling movie memorabilia in the shop she opened with her late mother on Hollywood Boulevard is more than just her livelihood--it's an enduring connection to the only family she has ever known. But when a mysterious package arrives containing a photograph of her mother and famous movie stars Glory Cartwright and her husband at a coastal film festival the year before Frankie's birth, her life begins to unravel in ways unimaginable.
What begins is a journey along a path revealing buried family secrets, betrayals between lovers, bonds between friends. And for Frankie, as the past unlocks the present, the chance to learn that memories define who we are, and that they can show us the meaning of home and the magic of true love.
Experience the salty breeze of a Cape Cod summer as it sweeps through this sparkling, romantic, and timeless debut novel tinged with a love of old Hollywood.
My Review: This book is the perfect read to drift away with on a summer day, or a spring afternoon when you're longing for the long days of summer. The story is full of love, family drama, and romance. I really liked all of the characters, they were super easy to relate to and well developed. The story also features enough mystery to keep me reading. Overall it was a great read and I really enjoyed it.
