But after an unspeakable incident on one devastating August night, they don’t see one another for ten years…until Margot suddenly reappears in Thea’s life, begging for help and harboring more than one dangerous secret. Thea can’t bring herself to refuse her beloved friend—but she also knows she can’t fully trust her either.

"Another engaging and thrilling novel for summer! All The Summers In Between takes us to 1977 in The Hamptons when Margot blows back into Thea’s life after ten years, and we know everything is going to change. With a bygone-Hamptons setting, deep friendships that return in a roar, and love that can survive it all, Brooke Lea Foster carries us with skill and suspense into a glittering world [that] has it all: mystery, friendship, secrets, enchanting setting, and of course love.

“Foster's crisp delineation of character, skill at suspense, and ability to evoke an intriguing time and place hit a new high: I simply could not put this mesmerizing book down. Two friends, two very different decades (the 60s and 70s), and all the mounting tension and trust issues that friendships in our youth can uniquely forge and sustain long after they may have run their course. In Thea, Foster's very real and relatable protagonist, readers will see themselves and experience her every hopeful move and misstep as girlhood pal Margot re-enters her calm domestic life ten years later like a time bomb.
