A woman inherits a beach house, along with a series of weekend guests, while butting heads with the irritable (and irritatingly handsome) man next door, in this sparkling new escape from Jane L. Rosen.
When a Zoom disaster upends Addison Irwin’s decade-long career at a posh Manhattan advertising agency, things look bleak for the thirty-something mid-western transplant. But an unexpected inheritance from an aunt she barely remembers—a property on Fire Island, complete with guest house and artist’s studio—changes everything.
While debating whether to stay or sell, Addison learns that she’s also inherited her aunt’s list of eclectic guests, tying her to the island for seven summer weekends. Eager to convince Addison to keep the house rather than let a new buyer build a monstrosity in its place, the neighbors welcome her to their laid-back community. Well, all except the moody guy next door, who seems intent on glowering his way through life.
Steadfast in her path since college, Addison is determined not to let this detour on Fire Island throw her off track. But soon, between the revolving door of weekend visitors and the up-and-down relationship with her neighbor (and his adorable dog), she finds herself in unfamiliar territory. Should she try to pick up where she left off—or embrace entirely new possibilities?

Praise For…

“A charming, feel-good story about the power of love, the saving grace of friendship, and the revelatory nature of time spent by the sea, Jane L. Rosen’s latest is the must-read book of the summer! An ode to fresh starts—and meddling relatives—this novel is the perfect reminder that it doesn’t take long for life to change in the best possible ways. Sometimes, in fact, it only takes Seven Summer Weekends. Five huge stars!
—Kristy Woodson Harvey, New York Times Bestselling author of The Summer of Songbirds
"When Jane L. Rosen invites you to Fire Island, you go. Especially when she promises a compulsively readable, totally satisfying five-alarm heart tugging romance. Come for the fun of it and then let Seven Summer Weekends be your roadmap for a happy life."
Annabel Monaghan, author of Same Time Next Summer

“Jane Rosen takes us back to Fire Island in this delicious, escapist read about an ambitious 30-something who learns that her biggest mistake might just be the key to happiness. A story about second chances, family, friendship, and forgiveness, Seven Summer Weekends will be the book everyone reads this summer. Witty, respectful, artfully depicted and wise, this beach read has soul — and a message for all of us about perfectionism, ambition, and the delights of the unexpected plot twist.”
Zibby Owens, author of Blank: A Novel and podcast host of Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books

"Each book of Jane's manages to tactfully transport you to the world of her genuine, human characters and Seven Summer Weekends manages to do that and more. Her characters sing, the story moves at an exciting pace and Fire Island serves as the warm, intimate backdrop for romance, breakthroughs and new beginnings. Like catching up with an old friend, Seven Summer Weekends comforts and soothes."
