Synopsis: “Fantastic. Wistful, mysterious, sparkling with secrets. I raced through Summer Hours in a day!” —Meg Donohue, USA Today bestselling author

From the author of The Summer List, a gorgeous, emotionally satisfying novel about a secret relationship, the summer it unravels, and the reunion a decade later as one woman must come to grips with the choices of her youth.

Becc was the good girl. A dedicated student. Aspiring reporter. Always where she was supposed to be. Until a secret relationship with the charming Cal one summer in college cost her everything: her journalism dreams; her best friend, Eric; and her carefully imagined future.

Now, a decade later, Becc’s past is back front and center as she travels up the California coast to a wedding—with a man she hasn’t seen since college. As each mile flies by, Becc can’t help but feel the thrilling push and pull of memories, from infinite nights at beach bonfires and lavish boat parties to secret movie sessions. But the man beside her is not so eager to re-create history. And as the events of that heartbreaking summer come into view, Becc must decide if those dazzling hours they once shared are worth fighting for or if they’re lost forever.

Set in the mid ’90s and 2008, Amy Mason Doan’s Summer Hours is a vividly told, unforgettable novel about the unique experience of female coming of age, the seductive power of nostalgia, and what happens when you realize you haven’t become the person you’d always promised to be.

“A beautifully rendered and indelible story. Amy Mason Doan has crafted an immersive world I sank into and didn't want to leave.” —Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Flight
