Mary Kay Andrews - ' The Weekenders' (off-site event)
It's always a good time when Mary Kay Andrews comes to town. One of our favorite beach read authors (Beach Town; Summer Rental) returns on Wednesday, May 18, at 7 pm, with The Weekenders. Some people stay all summer long on the idyllic island of Belle Isle, North Carolina. Some people come only for the weekends—and it’s something they look forward to all week long. When Riley Griggs is waiting for her husband to arrive on the ferry one Friday, she is instead served with papers informing her that her island home is being foreclosed. To make matters worse, her husband is nowhere to be found. She turns to her island friends for help and support, but each of them has their own secrets and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens. Cocktail parties and crab boils aside, Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Island, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything. This program is now at Jones Chapel at Meredith College. Plenty of parking!
Receive a signing line ticket with the QRB purchase of The Weekenders. No ticket is needed for admission to the event.
Take a splash of betrayal, add a few drops of outrage, give a good shake to proper behavior and take a big sip of a cocktail called…Ladies' Night!
“Summer Rental is like a great day at the beach. You don't want it to end. Enjoy a vacation any time of the year with the ever-delightful Mary Kay Andrews.” —Susan Elizabeth Phillips, author of Heroes Are My Weakness
Greer Hennessy needs palm trees.
As a movie location scout, picture-perfect is the name of the game. But her last project literally went up in flames, and her career is on the verge of flaming out. Greer has been given one more chance, if she can find the perfect undiscovered beach hideaway for a big-budget movie. She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida town called Cypress Key.
