Hey there, Beach Readers! We hope you enjoyed our July book, Beautiful Day, and appreciate all who joined us on Twitter to chat live with Elin last week.

As July comes to a close (seriously!?), we’re psyched to announce our next great read for the shore. Drum roll, please…

A Hundred Summers, by Beatriz Williams, has already gotten a ton of buzz (and a pretty fab review from last month’s author, Elin Hilderbrand). If you’re a sucker for historical fiction (like me), nostalgic book covers, and idyllic oceanfront settings, we recommend digging your toes in the sand and getting lost in a copy of this page-turner.

The book tells the story of New York socialite Lily Dane, who returns to the charming oceanfront town of Seaview, Rhode Island–where her family has been spending summers for years–only to be met with an unwelcome surprise: her former best friend and former fiance, now married, will be vacationing in Seaview also. As feelings resurface and secrets are revealed, the entire community unknowingly awaits a devastating storm that is hurtling quickly toward them.

Sounds like the perfect balance of love, scandal, and adventure! If you’d like to learn more about the book before diving in, check out our Q&A with Beatriz, where we chat about the real-life hurricane that shook New England, how Katharine Hepburn inspired her to write this book, and the quirky family member who became the basis for one of her characters.

We hope you’ll join us throughout the month of August for book discussions right here on our blog (just leave your thoughts in the comments), and follow us on Twitter to participate in a live chat with Beatriz Williams on August 27 at 8 PM EST.

Mark your calendars, and happy reading!
