The loss of their close friend draws four women together, and a summer spent sorting through personal effects offers the perfect challenge—and the perfect escape.

Sable—her bestselling novels have made her a star, but the woman who has everything, in fact, has nothing but a past she is desperate to hide.

Elly—an intellectual who has hidden herself within the walls of academia, she is afraid to admit she is tired of being alone.

Barbara Ann—the talent behind twenty-six romance novels wakes up one day to discover she’s lost control of her career, her sanity, and her family.

Beth—her popular mysteries have become the only way she can fight against the secret tyranny of an abusive husband.

In the house on Olive Street, away from their troubles, the four women discover something marvelous: themselves. And along the way they realize a dream. For, in telling the story of a remarkable woman, their own lives begin to change.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/29/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene | 11/30/2013

    " Worth reading alone for the way one of the characters takes care of causing a troupe of male relatives to finally learn to pick up after themselves. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tammy | 6/24/2013

    " I stopped reading this book on page 130. It's about 5 women who are all authors. They come together to become great friends because of their shared passion and it seemed like that's all the book wanted to talk about was how they are writers. I was so bored. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 1/19/2013

    " If this was my first book by this author, I wouldn't have read another. That being said, it was an ok chick-lit novel about a group of women writers. Thank goodness I've read other, better ones by this author "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 12/19/2012

    " The worst part about this book was the language. I love the story, I love the characters, but I wish they would learn to speak without swearing! Don't read this book if you are at all sensitive to that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia Solla | 9/24/2012

    " Five women meet monthly for a book club of sorts. They are five very different personalities. One dies and what happens to the other women is an interesting tale. Their lives are very changed by this death. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leona | 9/7/2012

    " Another good relationship novel from Carr. The story line is similar to "Summer in Sonoma" with some variation. Still a good story that makes you want to finish the book to see what happens to the various women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Niki | 7/13/2012

    " This book was enjoyable to read but not one I would recommend over many other books that are better to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 7/9/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book about a group of women writers. It says a lot about the importance of having good friends in your life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Grage | 2/1/2012

    " Warning spoiler! With a main character dieing on her birthday to start the book I wasn't sure I would like this book. As with other Carr books however I warmed up to almost every character. I really enjoyed it to the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen Goley | 1/1/2012

    " Couldn't get into this book. Didn't finish it. May try again sometime. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maddie | 12/6/2011

    " It must be me, but I have lost interest in this type of story. Too many characters, too many tears, too much introspection,.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Lynn Holland | 9/24/2011

    " I really liked this book and liked the way their friendship helped them each thru their own life's troubles. "

    " An author dies and four author friends join together to clear out her office and come to terms with her death. Entre Nous book. Good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Mason | 5/4/2011

    " An interesting book about women and relationships. There's romance, but it's kind of to the side. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 TaniaM | 5/3/2011

    " Já li melhor dela, acho que a nivel de história individual está fraco...gosto mais das Sagas dela! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 4/21/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Char | 3/30/2011

    " Though I thoroughly enjoy her other novels, this was a departure from Robyn Carr's other books. I enjoyed her depth of her characters and their unique friendships. I would highly recommend this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 3/27/2011

    " Really it's just 2 1/2 stars... a not great, but not bad read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 3/19/2011

    " What can I say. It was wonderful. Take 4 women that have lost their best friend and put them in the her home for the summer to sort through her papers and you find a thrilling story. Loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 3/11/2011

    " If this was my first book by this author, I wouldn't have read another. That being said, it was an ok chick-lit novel about a group of women writers. Thank goodness I've read other, better ones by this author "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jodi | 3/10/2011

    " I am a huge Robyn Carr fan but this isn't one of her better books. It was extremely slow to begin and I had to force myself to keep reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 2/4/2011

    " Four women are pulled together to go through the papers of their friend; it's a life-changing summer for them. Women's fiction/friendship story, like some of Debbie Macomber's. A good one! "

    " I loved this book but I am a sucker for those "Group of Friends" type books. It made me tear up quite a few times. A wonderful quick read. "
