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.
