Praise for The Summer Place:

"[A] funny, tender read. A new novel from Weiner heralds the start of beach reading season, so prepare your collections accordingly." --Booklist (starred review)
"The Summer Place is so good, it will be on every beach this summer. [It] gets at the core of just how life's twists and turns, choices and moments can consume us - and how beautiful that entanglement can be, despite the hardships...with its Cape Cod setting that evokes seashells, cool water, melting ice cream and summer bliss, it's sure to be the must-have beach bag item this year." --USA Today
"A meditation on mothers and daughters, Weiner's latest novel also explores class conflicts, identity issues and real estate dramas." --The New York Times
"From steamy affairs to juicy family secrets, bestselling author Jennifer Weiner's scintillating beach read has it all." --Apple Books
"The natural beauty of the Outer Cape is the backdrop for plenty of family drama and romantic intrigue in Weiner's latest novel, which incorporates the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic but still manages to feel breezy and delicious to read." --Emma Specter, Vogue
"In Jennifer Weiner's latest...expect all of the hijinks, heartbreak, and happiness of a messy reunion." --The Boston Globe
"A family's secrets and entanglements flare up during a Cape Cod wedding in this first-rate page-turner from Weiner. [She] is a master of emotionally complicated narratives, and her smart and witty writing is on full display here. This engrossing novel will please her legions of fans." --Publishers Weekly
"Weiner creates a story with all the misunderstandings and miscommunications of a screwball comedy or a Shakespeare play (think A Midsummer Night's Dream). But the surprising, over-the-top actions of the characters are grounded by a realistic and moving look at grief and ambition...even when the characters are lying, cheating, and hiding from each other, they still seem like a real and loving family...[a] poignant look at family bonds." --Kirkus
