"In the summer of 1966, Christina Hardcastle--"Tiny" to her illustrious family--stands on the brink of a breathtaking future. Of the three Schuyler sisters, she's the one raised to marry a man destined for leadership, and with her elegance and impeccable style, she presents a perfect camera-ready image in the dawning age of television politics. Together she and her husband, Frank, make the ultimate power couple: intelligent, rich, and impossibly attractive. It seems nothing can stop Frank from rising to national office, and he's got his sights set on a senate seat in November. But as the season gets underway at the family estate on Cape Cod, three unwelcome visitors appear in Tiny's perfect life: her volatile sister Pepper, an envelope containing an incriminating photograph, and the intimidating figure of Frank's cousin Caspian, a Vietnam War hero, who knows more about Tiny's rich inner life than anyone else. As she struggles to maintain the glossy facade on which the Hardcastle family's ambitions are built, Tiny begins to suspect that Frank is hiding a reckless entanglement of his own & one that may unravel both her own ordered life and her husband's promising career."--

Loved it, Beatriz Williams never disappoints. Love the plot twist and the descriptions she uses to describe everyday things.

A Hundred Summers is significantly better.

The first 200 or so pages are tedious. I was about to give it up when the surprising plot twists kicked in.

I really enjoyed this book. I set out to read more this year despite my busy mom life and this was the perfect book because it was an easy and entertaining read. The end was really surprising for me and I think that is why I enjoyed it the most.

This one should be in the Romance section. OK story but very flowery and lots of yearning about the tall, dark, handsome one who got away (...or did he?)

Tiny, The Perfect sister of the 3 meant to be the wife of a famous politician someday. Gave up her Ballet & her love...

I found this story a little hard to get into, but on the whole worth reading until the end.

Beatriz Williams' books are great summer reads: full of dark family secrets and romance and frequently featuring an oceanfront setting. Her latest is no exception, focusing on the wife of an aspiring politician in the 1960s with some secrets of her own. There are familiar characters for those who have read Williams' other books, though it works fine as a standalone, and it's a fast, fun read that's hard to put down. Perfect for your summer vacation!
