Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover A full moon, a twenty-year old friendship- and a Nantucket night no one would ever forget... For 20 years, Kayla, Antoinette, and Val have performed their own special summer ritual. Once a year, the old friends put aside their daily, separate lives to drink champagne, swap stories, and swim naked under the Nantucket stars. This time though, one of them swims out from the shore and doesn't return. After the surviving friends emerge from their grief, they realize that the repercussions of their loss go far beyond their little circle, and they begin to uncover layers of secrets, and their connections to each other, that were never revealed on the beach. What has made their friendship strong now has the power to destroy their marriages, families-and even themselves. Things get more twisted at every turn with enough lies and betrayals to fuel a whole season of soap operas...readers will be hooked.--Publishers Weekly Fast paced and suspenseful.--Booklist
