As the older sibling to identical twins Violet and Lily, Cami Porter was always the odd sister out. The divide grew even wider when their parents split up—while the twins stayed in Cape Sanctuary with their free-spirited mother, Rosemary, fourteen-year-old Cami moved to LA with her attorney father. Nearly twenty years later, when Cami gets the terrible news that Lily has drowned saving a child’s life, her mother begs her to return home to help untangle the complicated estate issues her sister left behind.

Navigating their own strained relationship, Cami readjusts to the family and community she hasn’t known for decades, including the neighbor who stands in the way of her late sister’s dream, while Violet grieves the loss of her twin and struggles to figure out who she is now, without her other half, as the little girl Lily saved pulls her back into the orbit of the man she once loved.


An emotional journey of love and healing! RaeAnne Thayne has a real talent for making her characters radiate love, warmth and acceptance no matter what trauma may be chasing at their heals, and SUMMER AT THE CAPE continues that pattern. I loved every minute of the Porter family and the reconnection of their wounded hearts. The characters are easy to like and relate to.

The Porter family is reuniting after tragedy strikes, and the depth of their pain and turmoil is spot on. There’s love and pain but also sunshine and laughter as they celebrate the good, support each other through the bad and rediscover the future side by side.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a family driven story with emotions running high as the past and future collide. Lots of family driven dialogue with touches of romance.
