“You’re invited to the party of the summer!” If you like: summer, Cape Cod, books, parties, and maybe a bit of controversy, then you’ll love this book! I found the characters quirky and the content of classic books within the book fun to learn about. I can still smell the salt water and feel the cool ocean breeze….— Lori
“Oh, to have the wisdom and perspective of age when one is young. In 1987, Eve Rosen joins an elite seaside community as the summer assistant for a prestigious author. As their relationship turns from professional to personal, Eve gains more insight into the publishing world than she ever thought possible. Full of wistful yearning for a time long ago, The Last Book Party is a tribute to youth and its folly, all wrapped up in a gorgeous novel.”
