When Nora Banks' husband, Evan, is arrested for a white collar crime, her privileged life renovating her 18th-century home is turned upside down. The parents and classmates at her sons' private school shun her family. Nora's only support comes from the family nanny, Beatrice. The two women bond to raise the boys as smoothly as possible in the midst of so many life changes while Nora starts her own business to support her family, a bakery called the Summer Kitchen. Nora comes to change her way of thinking about life, family, money, and romance.

A little slow to start but once it hits its stride it is very good. A little shallow - would have preferred more depth to Nora's struggle once her husband went to jail. Yes, a predictable ending with most loose ends tidied up.You could read much worse on a rainy day.

A nice little story with a predictable ending.

This was really enjoyable and the descriptions of the food, tantalizing. A good summer read - in fact a good read anytime
