In MY SUMMER DARLINGS, the lives of three women are shaken to the core when a charming new neighbor moves to town.

Jen Hansen, Kittie Spears, and Cynthia Nichols have been friends since childhood. They are now approaching forty and their lives have changed, but their insular East Texas town has not. They stay sane by drinking wine in the afternoons, dishing about other women in the neighborhood, and bonding over the heartache of their own encroaching middle age and raising ungrateful teens.

Then Will Harding moves into one of the neighborhood’s grandest homes. Mysterious and charming, he seems like the answer to each woman’s prayers. He’s a source of fascination for Jen, Kittie, and Cynthia, but none of them are ready for the way Will disrupts their lives. For single Jen, he’s a unicorn she’s desperate to catch. For Kittie, he’s a conquest to prove to herself she’s still desirable. And for Cynthia, Will might be worth risking everything she has for a new life with him.

Backstabbing, obsession, and secrets warp their lives, threatening their friendships and families. When Will abruptly ghosts all three women, they each scramble to find out why. Is there someone else? Has he been leading them on this whole time? Or, is it something far more sinister than any of them could have ever imagined?

Three lifelong friends plus a dangerous, sexy new stranger in town add up to a scorching summer of manipulation, obsession, and murder, from the acclaimed author of The Hunting Wives.
