Elizabeth Kelley's novel The Last Summer of the Camperdowns is fantastic!  I was immediately engaged and absorbed by Kelley's unique writing style.  Her character development of the Camperdown family and their friends and neighbors is brilliant and each person contributes to the family's dysfunctional lifestyle on Cape Cod (my native land).  Some of the scenes are hilarious, yet others are so intense they left my heart racing.  This novel has it all - politics, infatuation, secrets, scandals, revenge...  It is a quick and compelling read.

Born and raised on Cape Cod, I am always drawn to books that place there.  I was a little skeptical of The Gilly Salt Sisters, but it turned out to be an entertaining and engaging read.  At the heart of the novel are two sisters torn apart by their family legacy.  After years of their fierce rivalry over love, family, loyalty, and salt, the Gilly sisters join forces to save their family's history and their future.

Published: Vintage Books USA - July 13th, 2010

Jim Lynch is becoming one of my favorite regional authors.  His second novel, Border Songs, tells the story of Brandon Vanderkool as he overcomes his awkward, shy behavior and becomes a border control agent patrolling the Washington/Canada border.  Lynch's characters always tug at the heart and have the reader cheering for their success.  Lynch is a compassionate and intriguing writer.
