"Rebecca Kauffman has long been one of my favorite writers, and The House on Fripp Island is her best novel yet. The story of two very different families brought together for an unlikely vacation that takes a dangerous turn, Kauffman's latest is a rare and gripping combination of gloriously observed prose and three hundred pages of pure suspense. I loved it." --Julie Buntin, author of Marlena

"A novel full of secrets set in a stunning beach house is my definition of a perfect summer read. I was stunned by the twists and turns of Rebecca Kauffman's masterful novel, The House on Fripp Island. Bring plenty of sunscreen when you take this book to the'll be reading all day long."--Amanda Eyre Ward, author of The Jetsetters

"A sharp, modern story about the wilderness of family life."--Adrienne Celt, author of Invitation to a Bonfire and The Daughter

"Kauffman's keen, atmospheric follow-up to The Gunners explores class, friendship, and dark family secrets...inevitably, events spiral to a shocking conclusion. Kauffman's characters leap off the page...Readers will devour this suspenseful summer drama."--Publishers Weekly

"Our assumptions about whose tensions, desires, rages, and shy longings might erupt into murder are provoked and reversed right up until the final pages, when the mystery of Fripp Island is revealed...An entertaining and ultimately tender book."--Kirkus
