Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes, and Serena Stockton used to be the best of friends. Every year they would spent one week together at a cabin owned by Emma; laughing, sharing, and eating way too much ice cream. Then one year, Emma stopped inviting Mackenzie and Serena. The girls no longer spent their annual week together and without knowing what happened, they drifted apart. Now, 5 years later, Emma feels it is time to clear the air and share a secret she knows can destroy them all.
As the girls all arrive for their planned weekend, Emma is in a serious car accident and Mackenzie and Serena start to piece together what had happened all of those years ago on their own.
I have always enjoyed Wendy Wax’s books (my first was Leave It To Cleavage and has a funny story to go with it). Her books tend to be about relationships and friendships and never over the top but more like good summer reading (insert large sunglasses, ice tea, and a light snack here).
In many ways A Week At The Lake fit in with much of what I just said about Wendy Wax. For the most part the book is a good summer read. I have to mention a few moment that didn’t feel real, or a little far fetched – it was still worth the read. I like stories of women’s friendships and this book fit that genre perfectly.
A quick read that will wish you long for a beach chair.

So worth the read but possibly not her best. I do enjoy them and look forward to catching up with it at some point.
Great review Sheila! I loved this book!
I agree with your review, Sheila. I always enjoy her books.
Still to get to one of her books. On my list of authors to read. Thanks for the review.
I enjoyed this book, too, Sheila….I want to go to that cabin!
This sounds like a terrific summer book. I’ve had my eye on it for a while now. I’m glad you enjoyed it. If I found a copy of it I’d read it in a heartbeat.
I haven’t read a book by Wax yet. Maybe soon though.
when I saw the cover I thought, ah another lake house story, but know then I thought, ah girlie fluffy, and then boom, you hooked me with the secret. You’re good you know
I received an unsolicited ARC of this a month or so ago, but since I’ve never read anything by this author, I didn’t jump all over it. Sounds like it might be good, though. Maybe I’ll save it for January when I’m freezing and longing for a trip to the beach or a lake house.
