This is the tale of two college roommates: Genevra "Ev" Winslow and Mabel Dagmar. Ev has everything: looks, money, and a family of blue bloods. Mabel has nothing: a family just scraping by, a college scholarship, and some unwanted pounds.
Things change for both women when Ev invites Mabel to spend the summer with her. Ev has her own cottage, Bittersweet, on the family's Vermont estate.
Mabel easily enjoys the high life and is intrigued by the family and its history. Unfortunately, this family has some secrets and unearthing them could be dangerous.
This is a great page-turner/beach read, though I figured out one of the family secrets early in the novel. Entertaining nonetheless.
