Description: A moment of madness. A summer of a lifetime.
It was meant to be the party of the summer…
In Cedar Road, everyone is preparing for Lexi’s ‘White Hot’ summer party. For one night, parking squabbles and petitions are put aside as neighbours sip Prosecco under the fairy lights and gather by the hot tub to marvel at Lexi’s effortlessly glamorous life with Hot Hamish.
For Julia, it’s a chance to coax husband Charlie out of his potting shed and into a shirt so they can have a welcome break from the hellish house renovation they’ve been wrestling with. And it’s a chance for Julia to pretend – just for a night – that her life is as perfect as Lexi’s.
But when, during the party, one of Julia’s WhatsApp messages falls into the wrong hands and reveals her most intimate thoughts, things reach boiling point…
And when all the neighbours know exactly what you’re thinking, there’s only one thing to do.
It’s going to be a summer Julia will never forget…

In The Summer We Ran Away, Jenny Oliver has created a brilliantly funny and fast paced story as we follow the escapades of Julia as she runs away to France and becomes embroiled in a series of misadventures and personal discoveries.
There are so many twists and turns and unexpected developments in this story, it will keep you turning the pages to the very end. Highly Recommended!
