About The Summer House:
Sometimes it takes losing everything to find yourself again. Lily Bishop wakes up one morning to find a good-bye note and divorce papers from her husband on the kitchen counter. Having moved to Alabama for his job only weeks before, Lily is devastated, but a flyer at the grocery store for a hair stylist position in a local retirement community provides a refuge while she contemplates her next steps. Rose Carrigan built the small retirement village of Safe Harbor years ago--just before her husband ran off with his assistant. Now she runs a tight ship, making sure the residents follow her strict rules. Rose keeps everyone at arm's length, including her own family. But when Lily shows up asking for a job and a place to live, Rose's cold exterior begins to thaw. Lily and Rose form an unlikely friendship, and Lily's salon soon becomes the place where residents share town gossip, as well as a few secrets. Lily soon finds herself drawn to Rose's nephew, Rawlins--a single dad and shrimper who's had some practice at starting over--and one of the residents may be carrying a torch for Rose as well. Neither Lily nor Rose is where she expected to be, but the summer makes them both wonder if there's more to life and love than what they've experienced so far. The Summer House weaves Lauren K. Denton's inviting Southern charm around a woman's journey to find herself.

About Lauren K. Denton:
Born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, Lauren now lives with her husband and two daughters in Homewood, just outside Birmingham. In addition to her fiction, she writes a monthly newspaper column about life, faith, and how funny (and hard) it is to be a parent. On any given day, she’d rather be at the beach with her family and a stack of books. She published her first novel The Hideaway in 2017, which is now a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller. Her second novel, Hurricane Season, was listed on BookPage’s 2018 list of Most Anticipated Fiction. WORLD Magazine stated that her third novel Glory Road “exudes so much Southern charm that the scent of magnolias practically wafts from the pages.” In a starred review, Publishers Weekly states her latest novel, The Summer House, is “a moving story about the friendship of two women.”  Find out more about Lauren at
