Blurb from Another Summer:

When literary agent Tracy Ratcliffe travels to the sleepy village of Wentworth Cove, Maine, for a much-needed vacation, the most excitement she’s expecting is a sunset walk along the beach.

Tracy wound her way through the streets of Camden, passing candle stores, antique stores, coffee shops and eateries, in what proved to be a futile attempt to purge Wentworth Cove and all that happened there from her mind. Unable to run from the memories and getting no satisfaction from browsing the quaint little shops, she resigned herself to going to the library a full two hours before she was supposed to meet Lucas and Gina.

After all, she mused, her life was measured in libraries, wasn’t it? The library of her childhood, the one her mother now presided over. She had grown up there, reading everything from Beatrix Potter and Lewis Carroll to William Faulkner and James Joyce. The high school library where she had effectively hidden from normal teenage life for four years. The library at Boston College, her safe haven away from the chaotic madness of dorm life. John’s library in Kennebunkport, representing the chapter in her life that she was so desperately attempting to get away from.

And now the library in Camden—representing what? The unknown? Where was she going from here? How had she gotten into this mess? Just a few weeks ago she was a relatively satisfied literary agent at a prestigious agency in Boston, hoping to spend a few weeks away from the city, then go home refreshed, eyes rested, brain rested, ready to work again.

Now she was standing on a street in a town where she knew no one, watching tourists file off a bus in front of her, wondering where they came from, where they were going, and if any of them had ever felt as alone as she did right now.

Hi, Rebecca! Thank you so much for visiting the PP today. I, too, wouldn't streak, but might possibly consider doing Naked and Afraid. LOL Is there a difference? Congratulations on your book.
