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.
