SWEET SALT AIR
Delinsky captures the magic of coastal Maine in this beautifully written book about friendship and redemption. The characters are engaging and their various plights believable. The drama of betrayal, the tension of risk and the triumph of friendship play out in a setting that is a character in itself. A fantastic summer read!
After 10 years apart, writers Charlotte Evans and Nicole Carlysle reunite to work on a cookbook project that celebrates the food of the island where they spent their childhood summers. Life has taken them in vastly different directions. Charlotte has ventured around the world, living story to story as a travel writer. Nicole, a food blogger, is married to a surgeon and seems to lead a picture-perfect life in Philadelphia. They pick up their friendship where they left off, but this time illness, the revelation of past betrayal and a romantic interest for Charlotte converge explosively. (ST.
