Jane Green’s last novel, The Beach House, was an instant New York Times bestseller and captured her largest audience yet. From the sunny green lawns of Connecticut to the cafes of London to the sandy beaches of Nantucket, Green draws from her own life to craft each delicious story and the resulting tales resonate with women everywhere.

Dune Road is another fun and fearless adventure that will take Green’s many fans from laughter to tears and back again. The novel is set in the beach community of a tiny Connecticut town. Our heroine is a single mom who works for a famous—and famously reclusive—novelist. When she stumbles on a secret that the great man has kept hidden for years, she knows that there are plenty of women in town who would love to get their hands on it—including some who fancy the writer for themselves.

Dune Road is the story of life in an exclusive beach town after the tourists have left for the summer and the eccentric (and moneyed) community sticks around. Dune Road will surely be the book to pack in beach bags next summer.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dena | 2/14/2014

    " i think I am done with Jane Green. Her earlier books were great and I devoured them but her latest books have felt like a chore. I started skimming this book halfway through. The story was just dumb and so were the characters. I can't believe anyone would be as naive as the main character in this book. Green fills pages and pages with repetitive thoughts and it gets boring really fast. Skip this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 2/13/2014

    " Cute, but not as good as some of her others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marja | 2/11/2014

    " Much better than The Beach House. I liked the twist at the end. I still miss Green's old writing style: Jemima J and Mr. Maybe are the reason I fell in live with her novels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 2/4/2014

    " Wow ... after reading the reviews on this book, I hope that I am not steering myself wrong with this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 SJH (A Dream of Books) | 1/24/2014

    " A light, easy read, which was pretty predictable but enjoyable all the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/22/2014

    " this is one of jane greens a little more dramatic books much like the beach house. i love how she writes these types once in awhile as well as i love her other more chick lit books "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 12/23/2013

    " A romantic tale that was easy to read and predict the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anki | 12/12/2013

    " More momlit than chicklit but still a good read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Holly | 11/21/2013

    " Story was so hokey & her writing just wasn't that impressive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mairin | 10/13/2013

    " A great easy read. A little suspense (not life and death though) and some romance. I'm going to be looking for more of her books this summer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina Hoerner | 10/11/2013

    " I have enjoyed Jane Green's other books but this one was too slow, obvious and plodding. I just wanted to get it finished. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gaurett | 9/19/2013

    " This is not my favorite book of hers but it is very enjoyable. Good beach read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriella | 9/18/2013

    " I love Jane Green, this was a perfect "light" read. I think she came back with this book- I really loved her early writings, then I felt she was getting a bit boring- I think because I like the British jargon in her earlier books, but I truly enjoyed this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 9/10/2013

    " not my favorite Jane Green, but a nice easy chick lit book. Pretty predictable, but that's half the beauty of chick lit! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kia Kofron | 7/10/2013

    " This book is the same book as Dune Road. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 6/30/2013

    " Cute, sweet and a happy ending. A light, fluffy read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellie | 6/14/2013

    " Really quite boring compared to her other books and wayyyy too easy of a read. Very predictable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carolyn | 2/19/2013

    " Horrible, no idea how Jane Green is a best seller. Repetitive and didactic. Might try one more by her though just in case she turns it around, because I heard she is a lot better than she showed in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 2/4/2013

    " Once again (I know I say this all the time), I wish there were half stars. I did like this book, but I think it's more 2.5 than a 3. At any rate, it was a decent book. Not my favorite Jane Green...I like several of her other books much more. But it was still good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 3/1/2012

    " Soap Opera - way too much drama stuffed into one small book. And sooo not believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Nolan | 2/24/2012

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It was one of them where I could read for hours without putting it down. However, when I did put it down, it was easily forgotten. An easy-to-follow plot with a satisfactory ending. A bit blah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Baum | 12/9/2011

    " Good story. Interesting twists. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerry | 7/30/2011

    " I love the way Jane Green does vacuous chick lit. This was another enjoyable read/listen. Would have given it three stars, but the ending wrapped up just a bit too neatly for my taste. If you like chick lit an dhappy endings, this is a good one... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anita | 6/24/2011

    " Richard Russo it ain't. Joyce Carol Oates? Not a chance. Not even a good run at Jodi Piccoult. I read the whole book, so that says something. I guess I had enough interest in the story to keep going. But I saw what was coming and the writing was pedestrian at best. Not an author I'll go back to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JillRock | 4/11/2011

    " I am a big Jane Green fan, but I thought this book lacked something. I didn't feel as connected to the characters as I usually do, didn't care as much about their relationships. I also felt like it was very choppy and jumped around a lot -- it seemed different from her usual style of writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Slim | 4/10/2011

    " Not a bad "read." I do like Jane Green although this was a bit bland from time to time. It was not the page turner that I was expecting it to be but I got my money's worth and it was entertaining even if it was terribly predictable. Not bad for a long drive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 4/9/2011

    " I need a beachy book. I have enjoyed most of Ms. Green's novels, I hope this is good. Oopsss, this was not set on a beach, but it was still a decent book. I'm glad the main character re-connected with her mom and husband. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/1/2011

    " Loved it. Would have never read it based on the cover. I know I know never judge a book by its cover.

    I wish they would made a sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mikie | 3/18/2011

    " Better than just ok, but not by much. Predictable. Actually listened to it on audio. Several times when the characters were reviewing their thoughts, I wondered if I had accidentally skipped back a disk because it was so repetitive. Easy, mindless chick-lit. Would have been a good beach-read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 3/5/2011

    " Love Jane Green so much I bought this book twice, once by accident and didn't realize until I started reading it that I already knew the story line! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 2/25/2011

    " tripe. Kindle broke, waiting for replacement, so picked this up at bargain table at B&N. I like a good "chick lit" book now and then, but this wasn't a good one. "
