Summary

Rowena Tipton isn't looking for a new life, just a new adventure, something to while away the months as her long-term boyfriend presses pause on their relationship before they become engaged. But when a chance encounter at a New York wedding leads to an audition for a coveted house share in The Hamptons - Manhattan's elite beach scene - suddenly a new life is exactly what she's got.

Stretching before her is a summer with three eclectic housemates, long days on white-sand ocean beaches and parties on gilded tennis courts. But high rewards bring high stakes, and Rowena soon finds herself caught in the crossfire of a vicious intimidation campaign. Alone for the first time in her adult life, she has no one to turn to but a stranger who is everything she doesn't want - but possibly everything she needs.

The Summer Without You is a gorgeously escapist summer listen from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Christmas at Tiffany's, Karen Swan.

Lovely summer listen

This was a lovely easy story. Perfect for relaxing too. A bit of a thriller to balance out the romantic plot lines. Very well read, with good differing accents/voice for various characters.
Charming book and I loved all the main characters.

A wonderful Summer

The first Karen Swan book I have listened to and it will not be the last! Twists and turns and beautifully narrated. It's always good to discover a new writer and narrator.

Ok

Enjoyed reading this much more than listening to it. Wasn't keen on the voice of the narrator.

Great listen, loved it

Wasn't sure at the beginning but this is a book with really good development. I couldn't wait for the ending and yet I never wanted the summer to end. This was a great listen any time of the year but I really funny intriguing , my only complaint is loud Bobby. This is a great group of characters, set in an awesome summer place with great twists and turns. Highly recommend.
