Every August, four women would gather together to spend a week at the beach, renting a new house each year. The ritual began when they were in their twenties and their husbands were in medical school, and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter. Their only criteria was oceanfront and isolation, their only desire to strengthen their far-flung friendships. They called themselves the Girls of August. But when one of the Girls dies tragically, the group slowly drifts apart and their vacations together are brought to a halt.

Years later, a new marriage reunites them and they decide to come together once again on a remote barrier island off the South Carolina coast. There, far from civilization, the women make startling discoveries that will change them in ways they never expected.

Amazon Purchase Link: The Girls of August
Grand Central Publishing (July 8, 2014)
My Rating: 1/5 stars

My thoughts...

This is the first book I've read by this author, I was very disappointed and struggled to read each page. I don't think I've ever seen such superficial characters and a storyline that was totally boring...nothing happens. There's really nothing else left to say about it.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
