Things To Do When It's Raining

Things To Do When It's Raining

by Marissa Stapley

Overview: Mae Summers has it all: a loving fiancé, Peter, a job at the f lourishing company he owns and a beautiful New York City apartment. But Mae’s life shatters when she wakes up one morning to discover Peter gone—leaving only a cryptic note behind him—and the company in shambles, its investments founded on lies.

There’s only one place for Mae to go: home to Alexandria Bay, the small tourist town in upstate New York where she was raised by her grandparents in the inn they own. And not all is right in Alex Bay, either: Mae finds her grandmother struggling with dementia, separated from Mae’s grandfather thanks to a terrible secret she never meant to reveal.

She also finds Gabe, her childhood best friend who became the love of her young life—now a handsome if brooding adult, working through a private trauma that still haunts him.

A lifetime of secrets stands in the way of Mae and her family’s happiness. Home may be where the heart is, but sometimes it takes equal parts love, forgiveness and will to mend that heart.

Carole Zwicker (01/26/19): This is the story of Mae and Gabe who grew up together in Alexandria Bay at Mae's grandparents' summer inn. Their childhood friendship, over time, morphed into first love for both. During their teenage years, they became separated due to events beyond their control. Many years later, fate brings them back to Alexandria Bay and you will want to read this novel to discover all the secrets and mysteries that could again keep Mae and Gabe apart. This is a love story with much drama and suspense. I very much enjoyed Things to Do when it's Raining. Highly recommended. Marissa Stapley is also the author of the critically acclaimed novel Mating for Life.
