Big Summer (Large Print / Library Binding)
In my opinion this is the best book written by Jennifer Weiner. It has everything you would expect from reading Ms Weiner's previous novels yet so much more. She begins the story with the main character, Daphne Berg, in an altercation with a gentleman in a bar, which subsequently is posted online. After this incident, Daphne becomes a social media influencer, and starts the difficult journey of self acceptance. As the second half unfolds, approximately six years later, Daphnes former best friend Drue, invites her to Cape Cod for her wedding and to be a bridesmaid. During the wedding weekend, an untimely death occurs. Now Daphne snd her friends become amateur sleuths as they try to uncover and determine why and who murdered this person. Ultimately, this is the story of friendship, family and learning to accept oneself flaws and all. If you enjoy this book I suggest Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand.— Pam
Six years after the fight that ended their friendship, Daphne Berg is shocked when Drue Cavanaugh walks back into her life, looking as lovely and successful as ever, with a massive favor to ask. Daphne hasn't spoken one word to Drue in all this time -- she doesn't even hate-follow her ex-best friend on social media -- so when Drue asks if she will be her maid of honor at the society wedding of the summer, Daphne is rightfully speechless.
