Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

When her wealthy college roommate invites her for an idyllic summer at her family’s rustic compound, shy Mabel fears that the secret she’s hiding will destroy all her hopes for a lifetime of happiness and security.

Bittersweet was a thoroughly engrossing read and it just swept me away. The descriptive passages were so well done that I wanted to visit Winloch myself. I loved the depth and intricacy of the relationships between the characters, especially as communicated through Mabel’s limited point of view. The best praise I can give it is to compare it to the books of T. Greenwood–and lo and behold, she was thanked in the acknowledgements.

Many thanks to Crown for the review copy.
