9780452297050: The Summer We Read Gatsby: A Novel

When two estranged sisters inherit a Hamptons beach house, they search for fortune but find love instead.

Cassie and Peck are half sisters with little in common beyond a shared last name--that is, until their beloved aunt Lydia bequeaths them equal shares of her ramshackle old cottage in the Hamptons with instructions to "seek the thing of utmost value" within it. Cassie and Peck fantasize about discovering a lost Jackson Pollock, or a first edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, as they revel in one last summer of fabulous parties and nostalgia.

From the author of Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him, Danielle Ganek's The Summer We Read Gatsby, a perfect beach read, captures the spirit of New York's most glamorous resort town, and will captivate readers with its spellbinding blend of romance, mystery, and charmingly eccentric characters.

From AudioFile:

Two half sisters are desperately searching for something valuable in the ramshackle Southampton cottage left to them by their aunt. Without such a discovery they won't be able to afford their inheritance. Could the unsigned painting over the fireplace be an original Jackson Pollock or the volume of THE GREAT GATSBY a first edition? Justine Eyre lightheartedly narrates the story of Peck and Cassie's summer experiences in their beach community, where they attend arty parties and rekindle relationships--especially their own. Justine Eyre's narration is whimsical and entertaining--although her character interpretations lack authenticity. Even so, the story is engaging, and there's lots of listening fun to be had.
