Publisher's Summary

Jane Green's last novel, The Beach House, was an instant New York Times best seller and captured her largest audience yet. From the sunny green lawns of Connecticut to the cafés of London to the sandy beaches of Nantucket, Green draws from her own life to craft each delicious story and the resulting tales resonate with women everywhere.

Dune Road is another fun and fearless adventure that will take Green's many fans from laughter to tears and back again. The novel is set in the beach community of a tony Connecticut town. Our heroine is a single mom who works for a famous - and famously reclusive - novelist. When she stumbles on a secret that the great man has kept hidden for years, she knows that there are plenty of women in town who would love to get their hands on it - including some who fancy the writer for themselves.

Dune Road is the story of life in an exclusive beach town after the tourists have left for the summer and the eccentric (and moneyed) community sticks around. Dune Road will surely be the book to pack in beach bags next summer.

Much better narrator!

Can't anyone convince Jane Green that she should stop narrating her own books?! This narrator is great. Jane, please go back to using a professional.

just alright...

My first Jane Green book and I thought the book was just alright. The story kept me listening until the end, but it wasn't a "can't put down" kind of book. The story was choppy and the characters (except for Kit) was underdeveloped. I'll try another Jane Green book...I just hope it's better.

Light chick lit

This story would be good for the beach or for light reading where you don't need to pay close attention. The story leaves a lot to be desired. Predictable, too long for the shallowness of the story

Love it!!

one of my favorites! I have read and listened to the story several times. I love the characters and their individual stories and how she brings them all together.

Not one of her best...

Would you try another book from Jane Green and/or Cassandra Campbell?

Yes, I usually like Jane Green's work.

What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

She did a good job of using different character voices.

Any additional comments?

This was not one of my favorites from Jane Green. Kit is hard to root for- she trusts the wrong people and for unknown reasons. The story was too predictable and tied up too quickly and nicely.
