“The Sweet Salt Air transported me to the coast of Maine and had me savoring the local cooking, smelling the ocean breezes and falling in love. This is the story of two friends who are trying to rekindle a friendship. Each friend has had their own reason for the space that has grown between them, but they hope over the span of the summer and writing a cookbook together that their actions can help them move forward.”

From New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky—a woman has a secret that may save the life of her best friend's husband—or destroy him
Charlotte and Nicole were once the best of friends, spending summers together in Nicole's family's island house, but they have since grown apart. A successful travel writer, Charlotte lives on the road, while Nicole, a food blogger, lives in Philadelphia with her surgeon-husband, Julian. When Nicole returns to the island house in order to write a book about island food, she invites her old friend Charlotte for both sentimental and practical reasons. Outgoing and passionate, Charlotte has a gift for talking to people and making friends, and Nicole would like her help interviewing locals for her book. Missing a genuine connection, Charlotte agrees.
But what both women don't know is that they are each holding a secret that may change their relationship forever. Are the bonds of friendship strong enough to weather past indiscretions and betrayals? Can love survive an honest mistake?
Filled with real, gut-wrenching emotion as well as a strong romantic storyline, Sweet Salt Air is a new offering from a beloved storyteller guaranteed to make you laugh and cry.
