Description

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The View cohost and three-time Emmy Award winner Sunny Hostin spirits readers away to the warm beaches of Sag Harbor in the second novel of her bestselling Summer series.

Olivia Jones, hard-working and accomplished, has, against the odds, blazed an enviable career path in the finance world. But behind the veneer of her success, she is mourning several devastating losses and betrayals. Untethered from her life in New York City, Olivia moves to a summer home in The Hamptons.

Here, Olivia finds a close-knit community of African American elites who escape New York City for the beautiful beaches of the Hamptons. Since the 1930s, very few have known about this Historically Black Beachfront Community, and the residents like it that way.

That is, until real estate developers discover the hidden gem. And now, the residents must fight for the soul of this HBBC.

As the summer stretches on, Olivia teams up with her new friends to protect their community and, in doing so, discovers who she really is. Though not without cost, Olivia's search for her authentic identity and her fight to preserve her new Black utopia, will lead her to redefine the meaning of love, friendship, community, and family—and restore her faith in herself and her chosen path.

        "Hostin packs a lot into this breezy beach read... With hints of Elin Hilderbrand's beachy escapism and thematically related to Alyssa Cole's When No One Is Watching (2020), Summer on Sag Harbor will appeal to readers wanting an escape with a little depth. Readers who know Hostin from The View will clamor for this summer read." — Booklist

        "Hostin's debut novel is aspirational escapism at its best, balancing an idyllic setting and lush, evocative language with emotional heft and adroit social commentary... Hostin's story is a vast, intricate and ultimately rewarding one about love, family and self-fulfillment... In short, this book is summer incarnate." — New York Times Book Review on Summer on the Bluffs

        "A complicated, memorable tale of family, allegiances, secrets and summertime." — Good Morning America on Summer on the Bluffs

        "The Emmy Award–winning lawyer and journalist invites readers to the exclusive Black beach community of Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard, where the money is old, the secrets are deadly, and summer is more of a sport than a season...Think The Undoing with a hint of melanin, where everyone's wearing $300 sandals." — Essence on Summer on the Bluffs

        "The highly anticipated summer must-read from the talented co-host of The View is finally here... No one, including the reader, is prepared for the feelings and secrets exchanged in this novel about love, family, and the courage to make the hardest of decisions." — Shondaland on Summer on the Bluffs

        "Bestselling author and The View cohost Sunny Hostin has penned the ultimate beach read in Summer on the Bluffs." — Popsugar

        "This glorious piece of summer fiction takes us to Oak Bluffs, a slice of the island that's been home to the Black community elite for summers since the 1600s. Come for the ethereal setting and beautifully drawn characters, stay for the family dynamics, personal secrets and wisdom revealed." — Boston Herald

        "Emmy-winning co-host of The View, Sunny Hostin invites readers to Martha's Vineyard in her fiction debut...what follows is a summer full of secrets that puts family ties to the ultimate test." — Woman's World

        Stung by the betrayal of surrogate father Omar even as she continues puzzling over her biological father's long-ago death, successful financier Olivia seeks renewal by moving to a summer home in SANS (Sag Harbor Hills, Azurest, and Nineveh), a quiet Hamptons enclave for the Black elite since the 1930s. Unfortunately, developers are on their way to SANS, too. Following Hostin's top-selling debut, Summer on the Bluffs, which is being made into a film by Hostin's new production company; with a 200,000-copy first printing.

        April 1, 2023
        An elite Black enclave in the Hamptons welcomes its newest resident, hoping she'll help preserve the integrity of the community. When investment banking whiz Olivia Jones arrives in Sag Harbor (packing her Sergio Hudson mohair poncho, her Dior limited edition tote, and other brand-name essentials) to claim the home she's inherited from her late godfather, she quickly bonds with the longtime residents--other wealthy, accomplished Black women as well as a genial older real estate agent, a gentleman with connections to her family and memories of the father Olivia never knew. Not fitting in quite as easily is Anderson, Olivia's White boyfriend, an Uber driver and stand-up comedian. Though the two got along great during lockdown in Manhattan and "his words and presence were like chamomile lavender tea on a cold winter night" and his "cheekbones [could] cut diamonds," poor Anderson simply is not going to be able to hold his own against new next-door neighbor Garrett Brooks, a Black single dad and veritable love god. Garrett was just about to sign a deal to sell his home to the real estate developers who are trying to take over the area, but the arrival of the exquisite Olivia, and her alliance with the locals who are fighting the developers, seems poised to press pause on those plans. Meanwhile, Olivia starts therapy with the insightful Dr. LaGrange to work herself free of the burdens she bears due to a pyramid of losses and betrayals in her past. The family history is complicated and will be quite a bit easier to follow if you've recently read the first book in the series, Summer on the Bluffs (2021), which introduces Olivia's godparents and their three talented goddaughters, setting up the history of secrets and connections that continue to unfold here. A few steamy bedroom scenes provide all the "velvet hammer sliding into silk" and ice-cream-cone metaphors you could ever want. The political and social dynamics of Sag Harbor are fascinating even if some of the writing is a bit eye-rolling.

        Hostin's follow-up to Summer on the Bluffs (2021) follows another one of Ama's goddaughters, Olivia Jones, who inherits a house in an exclusive Black enclave in the Hamptons. Deciding to take the summer to try to reconnect with her late father's estranged family, Olivia moves into the house with her white fianc�, Anderson. She makes fast friends with a group of nearby women, but it's not all smooth sailing: the neighborhood is in danger from an unscrupulous developer who is buying homes from desperate Black residents to build mansions in their place. Then there's Garrett Brooks, a neighbor with whom she immediately feels white-hot chemistry. Hostin packs a lot into this breezy beach read, organically touching on issues of gentrification, racism, colorism, and infidelity while unfolding Olivia's transformation from a slightly uptight perfectionist to a more relaxed woman who knows what she wants. With hints of Elin Hilderbrand's beachy escapism and thematically related to Alyssa Cole's When No One Is Watching (2020), Summer on Sag Harbor will appeal to readers wanting an escape with a little depth. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Readers who know Hostin from The View will clamor for this summer read.

        June 19, 2023
        In Hostin’s uneven latest (after Summer on the Bluffs), a 20-something woman inherits a house from her godfather in Sag Harbor Hills, N.Y., a historically Black community in the Hamptons. Olivia Jones, an analyst for Goldman Sachs, longs to learn more about her father, Chris, who died when she was a baby. She gets the chance after Omar Tanner wills her the Eastern Long Island property Chris visited in the summer as a child. Joel Whittingham, the community’s unofficial mayor, knew Chris and welcomes Olivia, as do a busybody neighbor and a goodhearted real estate agent who’s passionate about blocking a predatory developer, ASK Properties, from gentrifying the area. Around these accepting new friends, all of whom are Black, the dark-skinned Olivia comes to terms with the colorism she dealt with while growing up. At the same time, she feels ashamed by her fiancé, Anderson Edwards, an aspiring comedian and TV writer, who is white, because of his need to support himself with food delivery work, and she explores a mutual attraction with another neighbor. Hostin’s strengths lie in depicting the community’s joyous camaraderie, but the plot tips into unnecessary melodrama with revelations about Chris and far-fetched connections between Anderson and ASK. This is charming and frustrating in equal measure.
