An unexpected inheritance, a promise broken, and four lives changed forever: discover "the gold standard of summertime escapism" from USA Today bestselling author Jamie Brenner (Elin Hilderbrand). Summer has started in idyllic Sag Harbor, and for Emma Mapson that means greeting guests at the front desk of The American Hotel. But when one of the town's most famous residents, artist Henry Wyatt, dies suddenly, Emma learns he has mysteriously left his waterfront home - a self-designed masterpiece filled with his work - to her teenage daughter, Penny. Back in Manhattan, legendary art patron Bea Winstead's grief at her lifelong friend and former business partner Henry's passing turns to outrage at the news of his shocking bequest. How did these unknown locals get their hands on the estate? Bea, with her devoted assistant Kyle in tow, descends on Sag Harbor determined to reclaim the house and preserve Henry's legacy. While Emma fights to defend her daughter's inheritance, Bea discovers that Henry left a treasure trove of sketches scattered around town. With Penny's reluctant help, Bea pieces them together to find a story hidden in plain sight: an illustration of their shared history with an unexpected twist that will change all of their lives. Drawn together in their battle for the house, Emma and Bea are forced to confront the past while facing a future that challenges everything they believe about love, fate, and family.… (més)

When it comes to great summer./beach books Jamie Brenner never disappoints. This is another great one. A delightful story of a mother/daughter relationship and the trials it involves. Also shows us that not always are immediate family our only family. Highly recommend this heart warning book. 5 stars. ( )

“The past is never over. The past informs the present and therefore shapes the future.”

3.5 Stars for this quick read. Nice to have a read set in the summer while celebrating Christmas. I really enjoyed the author’s ‘The Husband Hour’ so was looking forward to this book. I was a little disappointed in the predictability of the story. At times I needed to put down the book because I wanted to smack some the characters! Although, I did/do enjoy Ms. Brenner’s writing and look forward to her next book, this one left me wanting more....backbone, anger, drama before the ending. I enjoyed the snippets of history about Sag Harbor.

Emma is raising Penny as a single Mom living in Sag Harbor. Penny befriends a transplanted famous artist, Henry Wyatt. When Henry suddenly passes, he leaves his vaste fortune to Penny. Enter Bea, his friend and person responsible for his fame, who is outraged that this windfall wasn’t left to her. She moves into house that should rightfully be hers, but isn’t. Enter a greedy ex husband, hunky assistant and an exclusive fundraiser.

That’s to NetGalley and the Publisher for this ARC. All opinions are my own. ( )

Absolute 5 star read for the summer, or anytime, set in Sag Harbor. It was a different plot about a young artist who looses her mentor and then feels set adrift in a sea of family drama and the growing pains of early teen challenges. The whole story develops fast and I loved how the author brought it all together with really descriptive writing and style. Just a great read. I'm not sure I've read anything else by Jamie Brenner but I will check her other books out right away. ( )

Super quick read about a summer in Sag Harbor. A single mom, Emma, is raising her 14 year old daughter, Penny, in this beach town. Penny has befriended elderly Henry Wyatt, an artist, and Henry sees talent in Penny’s drawings.
When tragedy strikes, Emma and Penny’s lives change completely. An old friend of Henry’s, Bea, and her assistant, Kyle, come to town.
What happens to all of these characters is at times, difficult, but at the end, very heartwarming.
I enjoyed Jamie Brenner’s writing, and her descriptive tale of artistry, family, and friendships. I will read more by this author.

Jamie Brenner, Author of "Drawing Home" has written an intriguing, captivating, enthralling, delightful, heartwarming and thought-provoking novel. The Genres for this story are Fiction, and Women's Fiction. There is a "dash" of mystery and surprise in this book as well. The story takes place in Sag Harbor on Long Island. I love the vivid descriptions of the beautiful town, and beaches and water that Jamie Brenner has written. The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. Some are dysfunctional and quirky. I love reading about the summer in Sag Harbor, with historical references, beautiful beaches, and a very traditional hotel in a small town. This is also a coming of age story.

Emma Mapson, single mom to fourteen year old Penny, works hard managing the front desk at the American Hotel. Penny is very artistic, and loves graphic books. Often the famed Artist Henry Wyatt, can be seen working with Penny. Henry Wyatt is an older Artist. When Henry Wyatt passes away suddenly, it appears that Penny and Emma's life will take an interesting turn.

Bea Winstead has been friends and business partners with Henry for over 50 years, and comes from New York City to check on his estate. Bea is a very outspoken woman and is grieving her friend, but is shocked at what Henry's new will states. She is determined no matter what to get to the bottom of the changes to the will, and to find out what is going on.

One of my favorite parts of this story is the "Treasure Hunt" to find some of Henry's drawings that are scattered through-out the town. I appreciate that Jamie Brenner discusses the importance of family, friends, community, honest, love and hope. The contemporary problems of drugs, and Obsessive Control Disorder are also brought up.

I highly recommend this heartwarming and thought-provoking novel for those readers who enjoy a delightful read. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
