Five top books set at the beach

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books set at the beach:
by J. Courtney Sullivan

Every summer, the Kellehers descend on their Maine beachfront property, won in a barroom bet just after WWII. It's a grand old place where grandchildren dig through forgotten furniture and discover old secrets. But the grownups hope that certain drawers remain shut, as three generations of Kelleher women have something to hide. From J. Courtney Sullivan, who winningly explored female friendship in her previous novel Commencement, comes a sun-drenched tale of family drama.
