Parma-Powers Branch

Meeting Room A/B (150)

Join us when author Mary Kay Andrews visits to discuss her latest novel, Summers at the Saint.

About the author:

Mary Kay Andrews is The New York Times bestselling author of The Beach House Cookbook and more than twenty novels, including The WeekendersLadies' NightSpring FeverSummer RentalThe Fixer Upper, Deep Dish, Blue Christmas, Savannah Breeze, Hissy Fit, Little Bitty Lies, and Savannah Blues. A former journalist for The Atlanta Journal Constitution, she lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

In Summers at the Saint, everyone refers to the St. Cecelia as “the Saint.” If you grew up coming here, you were “a Saint.” If you came from the wrong side of the river, you were “an Ain’t.” Traci Eddings was one of those outsiders whose family wasn’t rich enough or connected enough to vacation here. But she could work here. One fateful summer she did, and married the boss’s son. Now, she’s the widowed owner of the hotel, determined to see it return to its glory days, even as staff shortages and financial troubles threaten to ruin it. Plus, her greedy and unscrupulous brother-in-law wants to make sure she fails. Enlisting a motley crew of recently hired summer help—including the daughter of her estranged best friend—Traci has one summer season to turn it around. But new information about a long-ago drowning at the hotel threatens to come to light, and the tragic death of one of their own brings Traci to the brink of despair.

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
