Editorial Reviews

Review

"Welcome spring with the newest treat from Brenda Novak. This is the book her fans, old and new, have been waiting for.  A big, tantalizing read!"—Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times bestselling author


“[A] beautiful tale of friendship, loss, and love… Novak doesn’t shy away from the messiness of her characters’ emotions, making for a powerful story of forgiveness, acceptance, and redemption. The realistically flawed characters, believable drama, and scenic setting make this unputdownable.”—

Summer on the Island will resonate with many readers who, in the midst of a global pandemic, may be rethinking what is truly important in life.”—Booklist

Brenda Novak Bio

Join Brenda Novak's Online Book Group on Facebook-- http://www.facebook.com/groups/brendanovaksbookgroup/. We’re currently reading THE TRUE COWBOY OF SUNSET RIDGE by Maisey Yates. Get an autographed copy in one of Brenda’s popular Book Boxes: http://www.brendanovakstore.com/.

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak's career as a bestselling author--she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home.

"When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book," Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and won many awards, including eight Rita nominations, the Book Buyer's Best, the Book Seller's Best, the Silver Bullet and the National Reader's Choice Award.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children--three girls and two boys. When she's not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually raising funds for diabetes research (her youngest son has this disease). So far, Brenda has raised $2.6 million!
