Sunshine Mackenzie seems to be living the dream. She has a very successful blog, a book deal, a future Food Network show and a loving husband. Oh, it’s the dream until it becomes the nightmare. Someone hacks into her twitter with #aintnosunshine and starts spilling some secrets. It seems that Sunshine doesn’t really know how to cook. It seems she wasn’t born on a farm and worst of all, she seems to have cheated on her husband. Sunshine’s near perfect life is suddenly down the tubes. She goes back home to Montauk, to a sister that she hasn’t been the closest to, and has to start from scratch. She thinks that if she works for a world famous chef there, maybe, just maybe, she can learn to cook and become what she once pretended to be. What she didn’t count on was falling for a niece that she never really knew and finding a certain fisherman whose friendship is just what she needs. And above all else, who was the hacker?!
I started this before I left for Florida to see my grandson and daughter for the week so that is my only reason for not reading this faster. I got on the plane yesterday and finished it between Florida and Colorado. It is that good! Laura Dave never lets you down. Her books are always on my top ten lists of the year. She didn’t let me down yet again. Loved it! My little disagreement is that I wanted a bit of a different ending with someone but it wasn’t my story to write and maybe we can revisit these people at some point to see what has happened? Hint hint, Laura Dave. This is one of my favorite books of the summer and boy, was it a perfect read for the plane. I lost count of the hours.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Simon & Schuster in exchange for an honest review.
