Summary from Goodreads:

For thirty-year-old Frankie Simon, selling movie memorabilia in the shop she opened with her late mother on Hollywood Boulevard is more than just her livelihood--it's an enduring connection to the only family she has ever known. But when a mysterious package arrives containing a photograph of her mother and famous movie stars Glory Cartwright and her husband at a coastal film festival the year before Frankie's birth, her life begins to unravel in ways unimaginable.

What begins is a journey along a path revealing buried family secrets, betrayals between lovers, bonds between friends. And for Frankie, as the past unlocks the present, the chance to learn that memories define who we are, and that they can show us the meaning of home and the magic of true love.

Experience the salty breeze of a Cape Cod summer as it sweeps through this sparkling, romantic, and timeless debut novel tinged with a love of old Hollywood.

This was a wonderful quick read that made me feel like the sun was on my face and the ocean was breaking on the sand in the background. I really liked how the characters were flawed and broken, but each holding a secret that you just had to find out.

I really didn't expect to fall in love with this book like I did, and I was sad when it was over, but these people will live in my mind for a long time. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
