The Weekenders Review and Giveaway!

Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for a copy of The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews.  This copy is given to me in exchange for an honest review.  I also have one copy of the Weekenders to give away.

Mary Kay Andrews brings us another great story for the summer.  This time it includes a mystery as well as romance.  The story is set in North Carolina on a fictional Island named Belle Isle.  This story follows the main character Riley Griggs. She discovers a little about herself and her family.


Riley and her daughter Maggie are leaving Raleigh for the summer to spend it on Belle Isle. They meet their good friends Ed and Parrish Godchaux.  Riley receives documents at the ferry landing that she thinks are divorce papers.  When Riley and Maggie arrive at their house there is a full closure notice tacked onto the door.  The trip to Wells Fargo helps Riley to start putting the pieces together.  She finds out what Wendell has been doing with the family business. So how could he leave his wife and child penniless?  Where is Wendell?   How could she have a foreclosure without her consent? 

My Thoughts:

Mary Kay Andrews has created another great summer read!  I enjoyed the plot throughout the novel.  I could not wait to see how it would end!   The concept of visiting an island for the weekend is not one that I am familiar with.   The mystery made the story more interesting. The character of Riley is one that readers will sympathize with and want to fight for!   There were parts of the story that I did not enjoy as well as others. 

This giveaway is open to US Residents only.  You must be 18 years or older.
