The Lemon Grove

The Lemon Grove - Helen Walsh When Jenn's stepdaughter's new boyfriend arrives during their summer holiday, a seemingly normal family finds their happy lives turned inside out. Jenn can't help her attraction to the seventeen-year-old Nathan and as the two are drawn to one another, his presence brings dormant issues within the family and Jenn's marriage to the surface.

This is a great, steamy beach read you'll want to take with you on you're own island vacation! It is filled with beautiful imagery and hot tension, but also substance and suspense. I found myself quickly turning the pages, wondering the whole time "will she do it?!" while also asking, "how will they recover if she does?" This is a book you'll want to talk about.
